Somewhere Out There

While it's true that people abroad get a bit more US-related news than we get of other countries and generally know a bit more about things here than we know of them, it isn't actually the case that people in other countries spend all day thinking about the US. We aren't actually the center of their universe, just the biggest star on the horizon. They have their own politics, own culture, own daily bullshit, own memes and favorite cats on the internet sites, etc. It really ain't all about us.
