Answer #1

We stopped drinking tea as much after the Revolutionary War, and tea ruins your teeth. Before toothbrushes and toothpaste British people oftentimes had really bad teeth from all the tea they drank.

Answer #9

I’m counting stained teeth as ruined. I apologize for not making that clear at the beginning. And I drink tea as well, so I’m not hating on tea drinkers XD

Answer #10

I never knew Americans stereotyped English people lol. It’s just stereotypes. Same as people saying all Southerners are inbred. Personally, I don’t like stereotypes at all. I’ve learned to ignore them.
