Not really.. All Olympic athletes are like that. We don't assume that the people at the Olympics represent what the majority of people from their country are like. We know that Olympiads are the best of the best when it comes to physical fitness.
@Ribby, except Kenya
@Ribby, you're right but if you ever go on to any other place where there are comments then all you'll see is Non-Americans going on and on about how every fat American can barely lift their fingers to type.
@Captain Kirk Hinrich, That's true, I didn't argue that the picture on the right wasn't a fair portrayal of how some people picture Americans. As for comments- yeah you do get that. You also get people arguing about Uk/USA and atheism/theism. Internet arguments are normally dumb
@Captain Kirk Hinrich, here we go
i hate it when a picture tries to speak for me
@TheBigJ, Yeah just because they have that photo of me eating a hobos foot doesnt mean that picture says things about me like "Insane" or "Psycotic" or my favorite "Guilty"
Obesity is a growing problem around the world, yet people only pick on America. You can smell the envy.
@Texacan, no it's not envy... It's because America is the most obese country in the world and has been for a long time (actually I am going to correct myself before posting this.... I believe last year or so we were beat out by Mexico.... That's just what I heard as rumors though)
@Gay Ninja, actually, for the highest PERCENT of obese people, we aren't even on the top 10. Samoa has number 1
@Gay Ninja, We're like the 4,5,6,7th. I think Saudis Arabia is #1. Fight me.
OK so obesity is running rampant in the US, I'll give you that. But is it truly our fault? Granted there are many pure fat & lazy people or there, as there are anywhere, however I place a lot of the blame on our food industry for our epidemic. Everything that is readily available to us is so jacked up with fats & sugars therefore making it very unhealthy. We don't have very many better options, and if it is healthy it costs about 5x the price. I should note I'm 6"1 168 lbs (rapid metabolism) I do eat like a fatty tho.
@Darkblaze, but the healthy foods have become so expensive because we have become so reliant on McDonalds and Wendy's and whatever other crap we can get our hands on... The healthy food companies had to raise their prices in order to maintain a profit from the loss of sales.... I made the choice 2 years ago to stop eating fast food most of the time; admittedly
@Darkblaze, ugh submit button! Admittedly I do indulge in Taco Bell from time to time and a lot of my quick meals come from quick trip, however I have gone 2 years without mcdonalds, Wendy's, Burger King, etc and I feel much better without them... Also I did not make this decision because of weight... I am 5'9" and the most I have every weighed is 141 lbs (currently I am 136).... Also candy is my guilty pleasure
America is also considered to be dumb probably cause they can't speak proper English or use the metric system
@Unspoken Deer, We also use the metric system with the imperial, and it's improper to say that a country is singular then make make it do an action in a plural.
@Unspoken Deer, you're generalizations just show how ignorant you really are.
@Unspoken Deer, THAT'S ROIT M8 BASH THOSE YANKS A GOOD NEW BLOODY CRUNKUH!!
@Unspoken Deer, I don't think that's why we're considered dumb
@Captain Kirk Hinrich, *your (sorry)
@Unspoken Deer, Well, the Imperial system is more complicated than the metric system. And it'd be, "Properly." Fight me.
@Unspoken Deer, hahahaaaaaa yes, unfortunately for America, that is the stereotype, fat and stupid. And if trump gets elected, it's not helping the latter.

The United States is one of the most athletic and obese counties. We have lots of very active fit people and lots of fat people. Anyone who's visited can tell that.
Other countries are jealous, cuz freedom.
