13 Aggressively American Things

To honor the Fourth of July, here's a list of some impressively American things to inspire patriotism.

(Press "play" and scroll through)

1. This headline

2. Fahrenheit

Most of the world uses celsius to tell temperature. But that's okay, most countries haven't been on the moon.

3. Sam Eagle

4. This house

And the impressive story behind it

5. Hating soccer

Don't get me wrong, I love soccer. But it's distinctly American to mock soccer--especially because it's a sport where a team can lose and still advance in the World Cup. ¯\_(?)_/¯

6. This sandwich

Donuts and bacon?

7. This truck

Only a true patriot could drive a truck that nice.

8. Simone Biles' medal haul

There are few things more American than winning. The best gymnast in the world, and possibly of all time, is 19-year-old Simone Biles of Houston. She's won 10 world championship gold medals, more than any female gymnast ever. (Keep an eye on her as Rio approaches.) And check out her floor routine:

9. This tank top

10. John Cena

WWE wrestler John Cena is a passionate supporter of the U.S. military, and also holds the record for most wishes granted by an individual with the Make A Wish Foundation.

12. The Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest

The contest celebrates its centennial this year. In 1916, it was suggested that whoever ate the most hotdogs was the most American person. This year's winner was Joey Chestnut, whop put down 70 hotdogs in 10 minutes.

13. This kid's smooth recovery

Just stand and salute, nobody will notice.

Happy 240th birthday, America.
