Too bad we have been increasingly selling them off to loggers, miners, drillers, and other big industry groups.

Nice seeing you here Mr. Havoc LOL

I'd say some things that American is best at is, but isn't limited too:

Overall construction and planning
State and Federal Park system
quality of life
military strength
public facilities
information communication
telling other countries what to do
helping other countries in need

I'm not so sure about that. The Scottish are pretty good at frying stuff themselves.

How to Make a Deep-Fried Mars Bar | eHow.com

"Deep-fried Mars bars are a Scottish delicacy, proudly served in fish and chip shops up and down the country"

When you have come to a place where...

National food: Fish and chips(both are usually fried)

National dessert: Fried mars candy bar

I'd say you are in the home of frying.

I would not say it's the best "system" in the world. Education is top, but it is expensive: to expensive for to many people.
