I would like to have discussions with others about differences in cultures. I am not wanting to insult anyone for their culture. I am merely wanted to learn different things about different parts of the world. <br><br>I have been told by several people from other countries "Americans are crazy for working all the time". <br>I believe that. There have been many times in my life that I have worked as many as 21 hours in a single day. When I was younger, it was not uncommon to work 80-100 hours per week. I have slowed down some lately usually only working 60 or so hours per week. <br><br>Guns are very common where I live. I currently own 4 and am about to purchase another. Almost everyone that I associate with regularly owns at least one gun and several of them own 20-50. I have been around guns all my life and was taught to use them when I was very young. <br><br>Most families that I know, both parents work a job outside the home. Many times that is required, to live the lifestyle that they do. <br><br>My job is 37 miles (59.5 km) one way from my home and I know many people who drive further than that to work. <br><br>If there is anything specific that anyone wishes to know about the area in which I live, ask and I will tell you what I can. <br>I would like for people to post things about the area in which they live that may be different from mine.
