Actually, isn't this a proof or sorts? Maybe the US teenagers
are just that bit "ahead" in the quickening, this would be
characterised by less patience, higher desire to have
everything they want "now", less desire to work hard and
long to get something... Although of course these are the
negatives, and like anything there are positives, like the
quicker adaptability, quicker to go out on a limb to acheive
something, quicker to challenge conventions and risk a lot
on that challenge.
