I think the United States has a really cool history. It started out with a little group of people who beat the odds just sailing across the ocean to get here..then eventually went on to decide that they wanted to build their own country from the ground up with funds and resources that, compared to Great Britain, seemed hilariously unthinkable at the time. To everyone's surprise, that little group of American bumpkin colonists went on to win freedom from the British, survive a Civil War, settle the west...it seems like the odds in every event in American history were ridiculously low, but...they did it

oh, and we make some pretty awesome movies XD
