So you see something that says '45 pounds' on a UK version of the website, and you are fucking stupid, this is what you get.

I like how the first guy that answers assumes the person is American despite the name ACHMED. Stereotype fail.

Considering the U.S. is the only major country still resisting the metric system, it would be logical to assume that an American would most likely associate the pound with the unit of weight.

I would assume with the name Achmed it is a foreigner living in the United States, or the son of foreigners. And, really, when people outside of the U.S. say American they mean people born in the U.S, especially people with white skin(though black people can fit the bill to).

No one would look at my neighbors and call them American, really.

Edit: Also, be quiet and let me be self righteous dammit. :p

It seems to me that the first replier is referring to him/herself as an American.

I'm pretty such the replier was saying that the question was displaying the average mind of an American.

Well, I guess it could be taken both ways. But in fairness, Achmed or no, he probably is an American. And yes as someone from England I am pissing myself at this topic lol. :p

Names don't mean jack, even if that is a real name and not a username, off the top of my head I know an Achmed as well as a Hammad, Pritesh, Nirav, Akihiro, Milan, Kavit and Varun and they're all British.

At any rate my point still stands that the first replier is painting with a bigger brush then is right.
