Could someone explain the first floor bit?
User avatar #4 to #3 - supniggs (07/13/2013) [-]
In Britain the bottom floor is called the ground floor, while in America it is presumably called the first floor

As a kid, I played The Getaway, this video game on my PS2 that takes place in London.
There was a mission where I had to stealthily find a room on the "first floor" of the police station. So I went in the building, and thoroughly searched the bottom floor for this room. No such luck, I ended up lost, noticed, and subsequently killed. There seemed to be no hope in sight, so I decided to explore some more, knowing this room had to be somewhere. It was up the stairs on the floor above the "ground floor".

At this very moment in time I thought to myself, who in the ******* didney worl thought it was a good idea to call a floor up the "first" floor? It didn't make any sense to my young mind, but I had guessed it was just a UK thing.

At first I thought, "Oh, wow - an actual, unbiased post comparing the United States and Britain." Then I reached the last panel.

Actually knocking a girl up means getting her pregnant here in the UK too, it has no other meaning, not in the north, the south or inbetween, I've literally never heard, or heard of, anybody using the phrase to imply they'll knock on a door, sorry, you must've misheard the fellow. Just clearing that up

To be perfectly honest, school systems mean jack 						****					.  The smartest people are the ones who pursue topics on their own time, OUTSIDE of school.  I know a ton of people with different skill sets and they have this common trait.  The best programmers, engineers, scientists, and artists learn the skill themselves.  The smartest people I know are home schooled because they learn things on their own as well.  The sad reality is that there are a lot of kids who just don't give a damn about their education and having a ton of them in one school automatically makes the school bad, hell, the biggest entrepreneurs dropped out of college.  Maybe if America had better role models we would have more people caring about high school...   
   
I don't care if i get red thumbs but I'm just sick of other countries bragging about their "better public education system" when the reality is that you can make the best of what you have.

As an American that went to a normal public school, that last one is a gross generalization... I know it's just a joke, but I felt the need to say it.

They still invented a good portion of what we use in modern day life.
The computer was American, the light bulb was American, atomic power was an American discovery that the Soviets discovered for themselves and put into mass use.
The US is just in a bad spot right now. Europe has been there too.
