cold and stoic? how do you come up with that? No we are quite a whiney lot (about weather mostly), and maybe we have a tendency to not give a fuck, but we are hardly cold and stoic. Watch us go nuts when our national footballteam (soccer is a retarded term sorry) plays.
Well that's what I read people state when they were talking about the Dutch, that they were stoic, serious. In fact it's a pretty common stereotype, but not all stereotypes are true and I'll take your word as a Dutchman as fact
And yes, I know that the weather there is quite often bad
But I'd still live there or at least vacation, to meet the hot boiz!
