Recently saw the Avengers and it blew my socks off! Hawkeye had the coolest gear, Ironman all the sass, and Bruce Banner is my hero. He and ‘the other guy’ taught me that there is no extradimensional problem that mindless violence cannot solve XD
Or, why does most the world outside of America seem to like him.
I think it’s quite simple: Because we’re not told what to think of him.
In America, you are subjected to so many biased viewpoints for or against the man. Every newstation has it’s own agenda that either supports or battles against him, parents will base his actions on whether it directly benefits them or not, and companies will only support a man who gives them more profit.
That’s a lot of biased opinions coming left, right, and centre.
In the UK, we’re given a more objective viewpoint. As we’re not in the country, we’re not subjected to emotional wavering. Our news organisations, of course, do all have their own elements of bias, but they tend to be in regards to UK political parties, not US ones. In the UK, there is less definition between parties. All of them share very similar stances things such as human rights, for example. This is not the case in America, so we take quite an interest in how your government works, and the differences in your political parties. Well, some of us do, at least!
“Outsiders opinion” tends to be more logical and unswayed by emotion than an insiders opinion. Both are valid, and you need both to really get an informed set of responses. Don’t just preach what your parents have told you, or what you’ve seen on TV. Try and look at the matter with a more objective eye.
So, just because we are not IN America, please do not discount the views of the rest of the world towards your politics.

^ All of this.
I thought I would have something to add…. but I don’t.
In short. Obama is good, and if you think he’s “done nothing” then you should educate yourself.
This! I hope that the Americans don’t get rid of Obama next election… *sigh*
0 - 32 = low (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 20) 33 - 52 = average (most women score about 47 and most men score about 42) 53 - 63 is above average 64 - 80 is very high 80 is maximum
73. that is the definition of ‘i have a lot of feelings’. I JUST LIKE HEARING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES, OKAY. i love stories and feelings and junk and stuff.
32. Wow. :| I’m pretty sure I can empathize. Specially with those I love and adore. I do tend to like problem solving a persons problems, along with listening and try to be a shoulder. Sometimes I get worn out easily by others emotions. To the point I don’t talk. But I love when people tell me their stories and it can be calmed, fixed, or someone can feel loved.
21. (originally I got 18 but thought that couldn’t be right and retook the test really thinking about each answer)
53. I was expecting higher, but I’m okay with this.
42, which is more like a man, apparently. Makes sense, though, since I’m not one for showing my emotions to others so easily. I mean, seriously, my best friend of 10 years has never once seen me cry. :T
33 - 52 = average (most women score about 47 and most men score about 42)
55. Huh. Didn’t really see that coming. I suppose that’s a good thing?
Hmm… 19… I thought I’d get higher from the answers I was giving. Good thing I don’t trust internet questionaires?
