Europe vs America

It all comes down to bathroom fixtures.

In America you get two taps, or maybe one joystick trype control. Turn one, you get copious amounts of hat water. Turn the other, you get a raging torrent of cold water. And you can adjust the flow to anything in between.

In Europe, your tap is a masterpiece of intricate industrial design, styling and taste. The designer probably won a Nobel prize. The plumber needed a Ph.D just to install it. Your choice of water is a sickly trickle of ice cold, and a vague, uncertain dribble of luke warm.
