    MJ is the best selling artist (i think) but he is not a band
    Yeah he is.

    Micheal Jackson and the Wailers... oh no, nevermind.

    I'm sure they'll do another alt rock album soon. I am hoping that techno stuff was just a phase.

    Why europe sucks
    I want no arguments here and no Europeans to participate in this, I wanna know what america thinks about europe and what is bad and or good about it.
    lol, this topic has more europeans posting than americans. only deckard and a few at the beginning were americans.
    and yes, we consider england part of europe. just like madagascar is part of africa, japan is part of asia, hawaii is part of north america. still don't know who owns greenland, or what continent it's a part of.
    why europe sucks... lemme think up a few reasons...:
    european music (not beatles, pink floyd, or radiohead)
    european wars (in the past)
    taxes and liberal government
    so many currencies (until recently)
    so many languages
    weird rules (in germany side streets going into the main roads have the right of way)
    anti-american feelings
    kings and queens and monarchies in general (ie, money vortexes)
    colonialism (falkland war)
    mad cow/hoof and mouth dicease
    anti-gun sentiment
    smoking (german-exchange students had to smoke every 10 minutes. i'm glad we sued our tobacco companies)
    //edit: forgot good:
    some british bands
    high standard of living
    more rights than other countries around the world (ourselves excluded, and probably antarctica since no-one really cares what you do there)
    historical culture
    better food
    smaller and more businesses

    >>colonialism (falkland war)

    that wasn't colonialism, its a useless chunk of rock where a few thousand british people live.

    it never belonged to anybody till the spanish or somebody landed on it.......the same way they claimed all of south america !!
    we kicked em off and decided it was ours.

    it has never ever belonged to Argentina. Argentina was not even a country at the time.
    a military dictatorship decided to invade it to divert attention from problems at home, so we had to stop them. thanx for the help.

    Not another why "insert country/cotinent here" sux Id say that earth sux but as things go europe/north america have the best living conditions. Afganistan is probably the worst country to be in so why don't we start a why afganistan sux.

    When judgeing a country there are three things to take into account

    1. Living conditons/freedoms/saftey

    2. The place as a whole, how nice a climate it has, nice stuff to see, etc.

    3. People there/ goventment, are they a bunch of jerks

    Both the US and europe score high on the first two (for the most part) but not neccesily on the third.
