** Australia, meanwhile, has the opposite of the US preadator problem, in that the main concern with cats being allowed to roam outside is not other animals preying on them, but the cats preying on native animals. Protecting native species is SeriousBusiness in Australia, so their stance tends to fall between the US and the UK's extremes: let your cats roam in the daytime, but keep them indoors at night.

* The U.S. is the only country in the world that allows prescription drugs to be advertised on TV - and in double-paged full color spreads in magazines.

* Many European sports fans express disgust at teams being "owned" by a single person or a small group of people. For the most part European sports teams are or have historically been organized as "clubs" with the members deciding on what happens to the club and - at least in theory - every member of the club able to influence club decisions and/or vote on those who implement said policies. On the flip side, advertisements covering all or most of the uniforms is a very common thing in European sports (even at the semipro level) that is seen as crass commercialism in the US.
*While moving teams around is often seen as a ScrappyMechanic of US sports and many non sports fans see it as producing wasteful government spending on sports stadiums few people actually need, it is at the end of the day accepted as part of the game. In Europe even moving a team out of the suburb that gives it its name is highly controversial and in the very very few cases a team was actually moved, Fans have [[StartMyOwn founded their own replacement club]]. However, European sports fans don't think twice about promotion and relegation which would not fly in the US - just imagine the New York Yankees becoming a minor league team or a couple of years for a season of bad luck and / or crappy play.

** As for demographics in broad terms baby-boomers will think of cars as the default and often experienced getting their license/first car as a rite of passage. Millennials on the other hand tend to view them as a necessary evil at best and often nothing but a nuisance. "Car sharing" and similar services that make people have access to a car when needed without the hassle of owning one are more popular with younger people for this reason. Even the son of Jeremy Clarkson associates cars with the boring times he spent being driven around by daddy if Clarkson senior is to be believed.

* One KFC ad showed an awkward Australian cricket fan in a stand surround by foreign cricket supporters, and tried to break the ice by offering a bucket of KFC's chicken. It was accused of being racist by American viewers since the supporters in question were (black) West Indians; the idea that "black people eat fried chicken" isn't common enough in Australia for people to see the racist connotations.

** Another comic had Calvin piloting a fighter jet and blowing up his school with a missile. In the 10th Anniversary collection, Watterson claims that he received several reader complaints about the strip and snidely dismisses them saying "Sometimes I think some of my readers were never children". Given the problem of school shootings since then, there's no way Watterson could have run the strip, let alone give such a response.

** This happens even in the same country. Someone living in New York City may consider a car more a nuisance to own than having any benefit, whereas in far-more spread out Los Angeles (or rural Kansas) it's an absolute necessity to do anything.

** In other contexts the older one would be more acceptable. Calling for cyclists to wear helmets is a serious BerserkButton to many bike activists (especially in Europe) and some even believe it to be some sort of Conspiracy on part of the auto lobby. Just look who made the pro helmet ad.
