25 Areas In Which the United Kingdom Totally Triumphs Over the United States

Alright, let’s get this out of the way. This list is meant to be a joke. We love the United States, and we love the United Kingdom. We aren’t trying to start a war. This entire list is meant to be in good humor. In fact, some of it is actually hard on the UK. (losing at sports that they invented?) So please, please, please don’t take offense.

While there are things that the UK does legitimately do better than the US, there are also things that the US does better than the UK. It flows both ways. For the purposes of our list, however, we chose to present it in this way for no specific reason as it is rather easy to pick on both countries!

So, if you have never been to the UK or the US, we highly recommend you visit. At least once. As it stands, it isn’t even all that different. Both countries speak English, have a common history, and share a similar culture, but there are still things that can be quite different. That is what we are trying to highlight in this list. Having said that, these are 25 Areas In Which the United Kingdom Totally Triumphs Over the United States!

First off, the voltage is higher. It’s 220 vs only 110. But guess what? British plugs also have significantly better safety features. More power, more safety.

In America, if someone wants to check if a stall is occupied they just peek through the gap. In Britain, this would never work; there is no gap.
