When my battery died after the car running hot for a few days (and having gone k04 only a week prior), I freaked out. So I can empathize with the guy who's battery died (again another quality that seems to be missing in the US).

Average battery supplies 12.5 volts and 9.4amps are required to turn the car over. Battery is comprised of 6 2-volt cells. If one fails, the output will take a severe hit.

I learned about this in college!

Generalizing and stereotyping are themselves a sign of arrogance and insecurity.

Americans don't usually get satire. It goes straight over their heads.

Generalizations are based on cultural norms that do exist. The proof is in the pudding as they say, homeless vets, people dying of curable diseases because they're poor, the dog eat dog mentality and lack of compassion for less fortunate people (because they're 'lazy bums') and an assumption of America superiority without ever having traveled outside of North America.

All of these attitudes are pretty clear in Jerome's posts.
