Some Americans have been known to wish they lived elsewhere in the world, owing to certain things appearing to be much better handled elsewhere.

Up to and including healthcare, free education, cost of living, or simply the way they make pizza or coffee.

However, sometimes we must stop and remind ourselves that the grass is always greener in someone else's yard.

As there are plenty of people all over the world who wish they were living in the USA, believing that some things are simply done better in America.


Redditor KyleB2131 was curious to hear what people thought America does better than anywhere else, leading them to ask:
"What does America do better than most other countries?"

The Versatility Of Corn!

"Turning corn into things that are not corn."- rlemon

The Pause That Refreshes

"I love the Interstate Rest Areas on road trips."

"I'm a Canadian from the west coast, and was always VERY impressed with the 24/7 rest areas."

"Clean washrooms, nice grassy areas for dogs, picnic tables, and a lot of times people selling crafts, or offering free coffee!"

"I've only driven through the western states, (WA,OR,CA,NV,UT,AZ) but yeah, those rest areas were always reliable."

"Always well-marked signs when the next one was coming up."

"Just made everything about traveling easier!"

"Thanks neighbors!"- Ubba-Ga

Very Logical Indeed

"Serious answer? "

"Logistics."

"We're quite a large country and we've gotten very good at moving things around."- weirdoldhobo1978

America is what it is today all owing to the fact that people came here for a better life.

No question, America has its issues, hence why no one mentioned our political system or our electoral process.

But it's the things that are uniquely and unequivocally American which makes people feeling lucky to be living here.

There is nothing people hate more than when a major turning point in their favorite TV show is spoiled for them.

Friends were undoubtedly lost over the fate of Derek Shepherd on Grey's Anatomy, fights broke out over who killed Omar Little on The Wire, and the identity of "A" on Pretty Little Liars.

The anger of these devoted viewers becomes more and more ironic with each passing year, as they eagerly rewatch these shows on a semi-regular basis.

Despite knowing every possible twist, turn, surprise kiss, or unexpected death.

This time, however, they don't care, as the mark of a good show is one that creates a world we just want to reenter over and over again.

Perhaps the lack of any possible "spoilers" only increases our enjoyment.

The Worst Parts About Being Left-Handed

Roughly 12 percent of the world's population is left handed.

Studies have shown that being in this distinct minority comes with a number of advantages.

Indeed, four the last seven Presidents of the United States were all left-handed,

And considering Phil Mickelson, Rafael Nadal and Oscar De La Hoya are all left-handed as well, it seems lefties are at an advantage on the field or in the court or arena.

Though, if you were to speak to a left-handed person about their experience, they'll more than likely bemoan all the disadvantages of being a lefty.

Of which, there are admittedly several.

There is little more comforting than lounging on the sofa, and binging your favorite sitcoms.

What ultimately makes sitcoms so comforting, in addition to the clever writing and improbably affordable apartments, are the characters.

Why Friends continues to gain a new legion of fans, even nearly 20 years after its finale, is the fact that those watching often want Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Joey and especially Phoebe to actually be their friends.

Or wish their own friends' dynamic was more like that iconic sextet.

Indeed, people would be much less hesitant to show up for work if they knew The Office's Jim or Pam would be waiting for them, or think that their school days might have been more pleasurable if taught by Abbot Elementary's Janine Teagues.

Characters who are so lovable, it almost breaks our hearts that they aren't real.
