First I have never been to America, and I am not trying to generalize here, all countries have whacko people , but i feel America is home to most whacko people.
I got this by watching X-Factor and American Idol etc, the crazy crazy things that happen, like cussing the judges in front of national telivision, violence etc.. Which almost never tend to happen in our own local reality shows.
Rest assured that in all countries of the world there are more whacko people than sane ones. Otherwise we wouldn't be having so many problems on planet earth. It's just that the whacko "types" are different in every country, and America is no exception. Having some kind of mental kink is just too easy, however the results are too dangerous. Just like almost everyone has at least one small physical health problem, except that physical health problems do not have immediately serious effects on life on the planet, whereas mental problems do.
Have you not heard of Japan or Russia? Just saying tokyo and moscow got us by the balls.
