  What do you think I make of references made on this list to anything  
which is peculiar to the USA, and only accessible there, like  
particular TV-Shows, people, habits?

  Most of it is really strange to me, and to most subscribers from  
outside the USA. Why not once a reference which US-people do not  
understand fully?
