1) A resident of the American continents.
2) Connotation of someone from the United States.

A stereotypical American unlike me, is overweight not very intellectual and hated because of a stuck up attitude.
We do not see the appeal in using words such as: yank, bigot, and football (soccer). A stereotypical American believes that America in everyway is superior to any other country.
1) Someone from Brazil is American.
2) An American is to the world as New Jersey is to America.

For an example of a stereotypical American watch the show Diner's, Drive-In's, & Dives.

No one stereotype can define an entire people, in every country (except Scotland- the lary bastards) there are good, bad, stupid and intelligent. It is believed that the majority of Americans are retarded, fat fuckers with the negotiation skills of a landmine. Now this may be true for 79% of the population, but lots of them are caring, free loving people who want nothing but peace - these are the hippies. Useless layabouts who try to re-invent the corrupt system of the human world into what is essentially the same thing but only ever manage to achieve a severe sense of smugness, and a drug induced state of euphoria which they likely won't remember. Most Americans like to consider themselves international do-gooders and world leaders in ethics with such organisations as the KKK and NAMBLA. In response to the English's comments concerning their language and culture, they refer to themselves as the best parts of the world put together (like a sausage), and insist their variant is the correct, despite it being called ENGLISH. Rather than a sausage, a more accurate representation of the home of the retard with a superiority complex and land of ignorant narcissists, would be the creature of a Mary Shelley novel. I would bet that at least 85% of Americans would have to research that last reference to understand it. :) Ya gotta love 'em!

The status of being from the USA, technically anyone from Nprth America, but most people use the former term. America (USA) is fueled by a vast array of citizens, most are stereotypes by some other race/religon in there own country. The south tends to be more stereotypical, that doesnt mean ALL people are stereotypical. The Gaverment is corrupt, they are nothing but evil Hell-bound politicians that only care about themselves...proof? Dick Cheney and George Bush. America has so many laws pertaining to political correctness that it is slowly turning its citizens against it, can't even say "Under God" in the pledge in school. Alot of Americans are under false pretenses that "America is the best country ever!", when its not. Massive debt, corruption, rascism, and violence are not things to be proud of, unless your last name is Bush or Cheney.

Unfortunatly, most countries fall into destruction eventually.
A quick rise to power only means a quicker fall.

An American is a person from America and for all you haters out there I know America is not the perfect country but YOU KNOW WHAT NEITHER IS YOURS! I realize that many Americans are and some of them are stupid but just to let you know we are taught the metric system, many believe the metric system is better, and we don't have just one culture we have hundreds. Also many people fled from several other countries because of the prejudice and racism. Also I don't know a single inbred person and inbreeding does not just happen in the U.S.A it happens every where. Another thing is that the United States is the heart of western civilization and one of the most developed countries that go to war to help other countries that put US in millions of dollars into debt and we still except many people into our borders. The U.S.A is one of the most diverse countries in the world.

For those of you who don't hate Americans I think that the people who hate Americans should learn from you.
WRONG: All Americans are fat idiots who are inbred and shoot people randomly.

RIGHT: Not all Americans are fat idiots who are inbred and they don't randomly shoot people.

1. Greatest Beings On Earth

2. The brunt of everyone's insults and ignorance because they are so jealous of the American people

3. Home of many idiots (liberals), but also many of the most intelligent people on the planet.

4. People residing in the most powerful country in this world that just so happens to play the vigilante on a planet where the other country's she's saving are ungracious bastards who seem to would rather have terrorists bomb the fuck out of their country than America's intervention. This is quite possibly why America's the best, and not them.

5. People that attend the best universities in the world. Yale, Harvard, West Point, Columbia, etc.

6. The people who have invented more useful technological advancements than any others (except for Israel) and have created your way of life

7. The heros still protecting your ungrateful arse no matter how often you spit at them or insult them or run your ignorant, fat mouth. (That goes for liberal Americans and twats from other countries)

8. The nationality that I wish I was because I'm so fucking embarrassed of how idiotic Europeans are becoming. The other entries for this word are just even more proof of that, aside from appeasing in every possible way to enemy threats. Just like Neville Chamberlain did. It's going to take 100,000 innocent people dead to get your bloody heads out of your arses.
1. Briton: Wow, who is that amazing bloke who's just reeking with brilliance?

Bystander: "Why, it must be an American!"


American: Well, not being socialists helped...

3. American liberal: "Omg guyz u totally have to end the warz man, ppl r dieing like tht nvr happens in wars and its not helpign iraqis or anything who are begging us to stay!"

American Intellectual: "We will assist them at all possible costs because like us, they are human beings as well, who would like to preserve and better their way of life."

4. Briton: "Oh, let Saddam use chemical weapons on us better than being politically incorrect by stopping him!"

American: *stops saddam behind briton's back in order to save his innocent people*


5. Briton: "Aye I dropped secondary the first moment I had the chance and joined a garage band instead cos we idolize feckin divvies like Peter Doherty"

American: "Well, I respect your decision. But I, on the other hand, decided to further my education at Yale after high school."

6. American: "Yay, we perfected microsoft and computers, and hybrid cars, etc, etc, etc. What'd you do?"

Briton: "Well, I made some really good tarts last night..."

7. See #3 and #4

8. See all
