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?"

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

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

School is hard. Sometimes, a kid may be different from the rest of his classmates, and everyone else is cruel and makes fun of them.

However, every now and then, you do find that kid that is weird, not because they are different from everyone else, but because they really just do or say something strange or even evil. Those are the kids their classmates will never forget.

I can't think of anyone like that in my high school, but plenty of Redditors have stories about that!

The world is full of scary things. Some of these things are supernatural. More often, they’re heartbreaking. Whatever the case, everyone has that one scary, true story to tell.

It's funny how we look at certain aspects of life and just have a certain sense of nostalgia attached.

Take Adele for instance. It feels like she's been a part of our lives forever.

But she's only 4 albums in.

That's a drop in the musical bucket.

A very magical and musical bucket.

Why do families keep secrets?

The truth will always finds a way home.

And it will of course be exposed at the most inopportune time.

Make sure you have a journal and write this stuff down.
