I don't know what Germans you guys have met, but everywhere I went in Germany, all we did was party and have fun. Same thing in Holland. Italians were a weird mix, some were super nice, a lot of them were rude. Whatever you do, if you ever find yourself in Rome, be carefull on the sidewalks. The scooters love to drive on them and don't give two shits who or what is in their way. The Belgians were friendly, and the Swiss were very kind. The French are all a bunch of assholes though. Every single one of them. I didn't meet one nice person in France.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Italians are completely out of love with US. Politics are very felt and part of growing up, kids do read and keep up with what happens in the world and why. I lost some friends when I moved to US. As for the driving they might shortcut here and there on the sidewalk...but it's Rome, not Bali... Can't resist defend ing it....Born Roman always Roman.

The one single thing that bugs me of americans is how hard is to make real friends. It is very easy to meet and be acquaintances. But I can't find the same level of communication and /or intimacy I can establish much easier in Italy for example. I think it's part of the anglo-saxon culture?

I was born in Germany! My family came here when I was a baby. But my dad and a lot of my mom's family is still there so I visit when I can. They really are a fun, chill people. And the stereotye of germans with liter steins drinking and singing all night is SO true. Hahaha. I was in East Africa for a while.. Tanzania which was once "German East Africa." My neighbor was a happy german nicknamed "The Mayor" who would sit on his porch and drink beer in his underwear at 10:30 AM.

Seriously though...can I stereotype Bay Area Californians at Tahoe resorts instead?

Is it a law that if you are a Filipina chick with a reasonably good body...you HAVE to marry a rich white guy? And just for insurance (eg child support check) you should totally have 4 kids that "go potty" until they are 16 and need you to take their boots on and off for them.

This is how everyone sees Canada. It is somewhat accurate.

Alberta, BC, Nova Scotia, and half of NB is basically just like the states (well.. Not counting the Bible Belt) but with a bunch of extra change to carry around and weird plastic money.
Quebec and Ontario seem like they're filled with entitled assholes.
IME...

I could live in Canada! I've really enjoyed my time in Lethbridge, Calgary and Halifax. They all seem to have a super low opinion of Americans though.

Mexico is like the southern states but I can't understand anyone and get stopped every 30 miles by the police close to the border. They just want like 20 bucks before they send you on your way. Once you get more south people are awesome.

Thanks for the compliment on Belgians. And I agree with pretty much everything else, don't even dare to cross the road in Italy. French people are extremely arrogant, and the worst part is, they don't know any other language then French.

Americans seem like fun although I think they are a bit over emotional. And goddamn, you people have some fucked up Christians. It's unbelievable how many Americans actually think the world is only 10 000 years old and that God is the creator of everything (I have nothing against religions, but some really cross the line if you can't even think logical anymore). And the whole NSA thingy wasn't to chill either, Obama was my bro, but he lost some respect with that
