    Australians Are More Australian Overseas

    From Redditor u/CorporalSwaggins:

    Australia. We do say 'Yeah Nah' a lot. And when we're overseas we subconsciously act more Australian because people love that sh*t.

    Americans Love Ice

    From Redditor u/Flaming BagOfPoop:

    In the USA, coffee is the preferred morning beverage. People do drink hot tea but it’s not nearly as popular as coffee. For the most part if you ever order tea, it’ll be served over ice unless you’re at a coffee shop or maybe a nicer restaurant around dessert time.

    We love ice in most drinks. My office has mostly non-Americans and i see people all the time get a mug of straight up hot water. Like wtf? I understand maybe not liking really cold things but nearly boiling water meant for tea?

    I’m guessing having a “style of food” night is an American thing. Growing up, one night for dinner we might have tacos or enchiladas but a few days later maybe we have spaghetti or pizza. And then maybe we have a very American meal of meat veggies and a starch.
