10 things Americans might now know about America

A nice post over at Thought Catalog lists some interesting facts Americans might not know about their own country. The writer, an American, says he has gained perspective as a result of living outside of the USA for a number of years.

Here’s the money quote…

You often don’t see what’s messed up about your country and culture until you step outside of it.

And so even though this article is going to come across as fairly scathing, I want my American readers to know: some of the stuff we do, some of the stuff that we always assumed was normal, it’s kind of screwed up. And that’s OK.”

"Erik excels in roles that require technical creativity and innovation. He is one of the very few people for whom technology is a way of life. Staying abreast with the latest and the greatest comes naturally for him. I found him to be very meticulous about the smallest technical details on projects while maintaining sight of the greater goal. I found him to be a great mentor to junior technical resources and very good writer."
