List Criteria: Non-Americans ONLY - vote up the weirdest thing about America on this list.

Ah, America: the land of the free and the home of the brave....and a bunch of other weird stuff. We searched the internet to find out what things non-Americans were most confused by during their stay in our fine country. As it turns out, we do some pretty weird things. Our everyday lives are filled with things that shock, impress, and downright confuse our fellow man. It has become pretty clear that "America" is not synonymous with "reason".
