This. My original point with the teeth comment is that sweeping generalizations don't apply to everyone and it's irritating to be grouped into one you don't belong. But I'm sure many know the feeling in one context or another.

Certainly I'll be the first to admit it's also a problem in Britain as well and we should take responsibility for that ourselves not "blame America", which would be an abdication of our own responsibility. We are trying (note the emphasis) with Jamie Oliver and this whole Olympics sports push at least. Nevertheless, it is ironic that "how to cook" was mentioned as a high proportion of our food outlets are Americanised and I would point to "fast food" as one of the main sources of our growing weight problems.

As per the article the UK has excellent oral hygiene and dental facilities so I never got the irony in that. It's not even overdone, it's just never made sense to me.

I did some searches. Why is "How to train your dragon" the 2nd most frequent search for Canada?

For Serbia, #1 is "How to find a job. Sadly, it's very believable.

Exactly.

I wasn't Russia hating at all; just pointing out the ridiculousness of a Russian sitting around pondering "how to become nicer" long enough to type it into Google. This would never happen.
