It seems to me that in general Americans are wilder and party harder than the Britains do. But it is just my perception wonder if there are other who feel the same as i do ?

I think that is the general perception here in America, but in realility the difference isn't that much. I would say Americans are more into parties/dancing/clubs while Brits are more into doing pub crawls.

I don't know if not being able to hold your liquor makes you wilder.

Americans are caught up in "looking cool". Australians are wilder than both

I am not from UK or US, but the image i get is there is much more of a party atmosphere in US than UK...

My personal opinion again, American music and movies tend to have more of a Wow factor compared to UK music and movies..

American music are good jams ....

Brits party way harder than Americans. Just visit Ibiza in the summer months.

You may be right.

I had the pleasure of hosting a Brit and two Aussies. We went downtown here in Windsor and met up with 3 guys from Ohio (didn't know them). So, we were all drinking pretty heavily, and yes, crawling the pubs. The Americans kept wanting to stop at the clubs. Well, two of them anyway. The rest of us prefered pubs. The Americans didn't party any harder than anyone else, and we all had a great, great time.

Either way, there were only 4 of us left standing at the end of the night, and none were American. lol

Too bad too, because at that point, they were the only ones I could understand.

Oh, that's not true. I've been to some mighty fine bush parties with older Americans. I think the older they get, the bigger they make their fires, and the more dangerous things they will throw into them. lol
Canadians are the same way. lol
