Ah, America. The land of the free and the home of the brave. But let’s be real, as much as we love this great nation of ours; there are certain things that we Americans do that would make an outsider raise an eyebrow or two. From our love of pumpkin spice to our obsession with air conditioning, there are certain customs and habits that we take for granted as being completely normal but are actually quite strange. So, grab a hotdog and a cold soda, and let’s look at the strangest things that almost every American believes are normal. Each of these things is classically American – in a good way!
Not Normal News
Us Americans are obsessed with the news. According to a recent survey, the average American spends a whopping 3.5 hours per day watching, reading, or listening to the news. That’s more time than most of us spend sleeping! Also, we spend a whopping 2.5 hours watching cable news programs.
So, in other words, we spend more time watching cable news than on cable T.V. Talk about dedication! But don’t worry; there’s still plenty of time to catch up on the latest episode of “The Bachelor” or “The Real Housewives” after you’ve finished catching up on the day’s headlines.
