Funny thing I actually realized. Most Americans migrated to America. Our ancestors and relatives came to America from another country in the East.
In fact, most of you reading this now share DNA with another person living in Africa, Asia or Europe.
We are born travellers! It's in our blood. Except for the Native Americans, I don't understand why Americans are against visiting other countries.
I guess misery loves company...
There's a mind wipe in place. When you arrive in the US, esp if you'd been on a business trip abroad, you start to lose awareness of yourself and begin to think that that this is the only place.
Think about it, if you let's say, take a business trip to Albany NY or Boston MA, does the thought of driving up to Montreal QC to bone a stripper/esc*rt come to mind? No, instead, there's the latest Prime Rib restaurant or theater, or show in the area, which gets evoked. And this in in everyone. Even though guys intellectually know that strippers/esc*rts (and beautiful ones) are available, only one city up north, the attention gets re-directed to let's say the Indian casinos in CT or Atlantic City NJ, etc. So what happens is that American men, because they never end up leaving the USA, end up in the chasing of AW game, and it goes on everywhere, despite the fact that they could go cold turkey on AWs, go to Canada or Mexico for a bang, and come back home relaxed and satisfied.
16 years ago, the Best Picture of 1999, "American Beauty", telegraphed the message of Happier Abroad to the world.
Beware of long term engagements with AWs, you may find yourself in a coffin.

BTW, despite settling down with an AW, myself, the warning is still in effect.
Americans are fed "greatest country in the world" bullshit from birth, so it is no wonder that most never question it or even just get curious. It's difficult to imagine places you've never been, and ways you've never lived. So most don't. It's like the Matrix. (It's just such a damn good metaphor.) And most couldn't be awakened from the Matrix without being destroyed. When your sense of life doesn't really go beyond consumerism and TV, you're nothing but a fragile ego.
