10. We have the best Basketball players in the world

The United States is like a factory of basketball players.

As Ari Temkin says, “It’s not that America has just always been given the best basketball players in the world. The US has developed, innovated, and fostered a culture of skilled ball handlers that no other country can compete with.”

9. We are a global leader in hot dogs consumed

Who doesn’t want to ditch their New Year’s Resolution and head to one of the many hot dog stands that line the streets of Times Square only days into the new year?

What better way to celebrate than by eating a little polar bear (that’s actually a 100% beef hot dog). Your unhealthy lifestyle is temporarily forgiven, because you opted for a healthier option.

Hot dogs are a staple in America, being served (and done-up) on almost every street corner. What city eats the most hot dogs? New York City? Nope.

The City that eats the most hot dogs is actually… Los Angeles. ? Los Angeles is one of the largest metropolitan, even by world standards. The city is famous for its variety of street food and hot dogs, as well as its extensive food culture.

Relevant ones anyways.

Or, Twitter, which started as a podcasting service and now has over 330 million monthly active users. All these social media platforms have been founded by Americans, who also hold ownership of most major websites in the world too.

Facebook was founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg while Twitter was founded in 2006 by Jack Dorsey. Instagram is also an American invention.

It was created in 2010 by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger and it became popular due to its simplistic design.

Snapchat is also an American invention that’s still growing extremely fast with more than 100 million active users. Add to that, WhatsApp, which is increasing its user base at a rapid rate

It’s not just social media that America controls either – they are also the founders of the world’s largest tech company (Apple), most-used email service (Gmail) and even search engine (Google). What does this say about American culture? Who knows!

Final Thoughts

The US is one of these countries that has its own culture, history, and language from other countries. One thing that makes it stand out from other countries is that there are 50 states instead of just one country with different regions or provinces like Canada or France. This allows for more diversity because each state may have its own history and culture which contributes to the rich American culture as a whole.
