i rue the day when you put me on ignore
That day will never come.
your so argumentative trips. you should tell tommy vercetti that china will place higher than usa in the olympics in gold medals.
His GOD BLESS THE USA!11!11!1OMG!1!!1!!1131 thing is seriously
Sadly I like the US better than China. At least the US is on Taiwan's side, albeit not as much as before.
You're alright. For the time being.
Because you've failed to realize that AMURIKAH is the only PURE DEMOCRACY out there, with everyone else exercising tyranny on their citizens and shielding their right to own guns and shoot shit.
You want be like them, admit it.
Don't make AMURIKA bring freedom to you. Just don't.
Don't forget how America is, like, totally the only true democracy because it was first nation to have rights blah blah blah, oh oops, I totally forgot we had slaves.
America is actually pretty fucked up. Its politics are such a mess. But I guess that's true for most places to some extent.

Certainly we can not generalize this, there are great artists every where but it is just something that stood out to me and Swiss are probably more self confident then Polish or Asian people form what you guys say.
Certainly something to keep in mind when raising children me thinks.
I read somewhere that constant praises could be bad for the kid because he doesn't really know where he really stands. It's like the other extreme to the Asian way of not praising the kid ever. I also read an article about how America tends to overinflate "achievements" and give out awards for crap, which actually have the negative effect of reducing their international competitiveness.
I'd rather be told straight in the face that I suck at something than to be cuddled into a false sense of belief that I don't suck at it, so that when I grow up, I don't get a rude shock and have my sense of self-worth destroyed when I discover that I really suck at that something. I would like to be praised - constantly - for the things that I'm really good at too.
