Oh sheesh. There is a McDonalds down the street from me, and I am certain there are a bunch of Canadians in there EATING THAT CRAP RIGHT NOW. Sorry, alternitivista, but, like you, I find it incredibly bothersome when my fellow Canadians start acting as though they are better than Americans. Even our healthcare system is far from perfect, although I do appreciate it. And I must say - with the windchill it is -29 F where I am right now, so being a Canadian is not always so super happy yay.
Canadians Don't Have As Much Acne Because Of Vitamin D Levels?

Does anyone remember when that "French Women Don't Get Fat" book came out? How about "Bringing Up Bebe" that promises the French have nice, compliant children? I have no idea how these silly stereotypes perpetuate. France certainly has obese people waddling around, and some of the most spoiled, whiny, tantrum-y children I've seen
The one real difference is that America is covered by the media 24/7. Americans do have a habit recording others and being recorded, and then posting that information on the internet, the tv, anywhere anyone will see. America is not very private. What came out of America...let's see...Facebook...MySpace...Reality TV...yeah, privacy is not a very high priority.
I don't see a whole lot of "let's make fun of random Canadians I shot pictures of in Wal-Mart" web sites, or "let's gather all the fattest people in France and film them trying to lose weight". It's easy to idealize countries that are a bit more mysterious, just because we're ignorant of their flaws.
