Add Spain, France and Greece to that list.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Argentine is scorned among its neighbour countries, then which country isn't ? But I guess it's about them being richer. Just wanted to add that they are probably viewed in a better light outside their own continent, also like most other countries.

Could it be that reputation grows with distance? Not in every case of course, think of Japan, or USA that has haters all over the world.

Chile is better off economically than Argentina these days and Norway is better off than Sweden, but these things change and there is always that factor as well.

It's like what the Portuguese say about the Spanish, the only good thing about the east is that the sun rises. Mexicans about Mexico, it's so close to heaven, yet too close to the United States.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Laughing at National and Regional Stereotypes

Germans
- Love their beer
-Very efficient
-Always are on the beach first with their towels to reserve a space
-Bratwurst and sauerkraut eating
-Rude and arrogant
-Wear lederhosen ( only in Bavaria)
-Well travelled
-Beer guts and the guys love their moustaches and beards
-Drive like Schumacher on the autobahns

I'd like to add:
* they always give Turkey 12 point in the Eurosong thanks to all Gastarbeiters
* their environment is not very clean (Ruhr, Schwarzwald, Elbe&Rhein)
* they make the best cars
* oompaoompamusic along with the Lederhosen in Bavaria, and bigbreasted blond waitresses named Helga or Brünnhilde
* their langauge is ugly (though I love German speaking female voices ) with lots of harsh consonants

* Spend all that money for the Eurovision song contest and can't win it.
* For all the pollution especially in the East, they have the Black Forest which is what the Ruhr should be called.
* Even saying I love you in German can sound like they want to hurt you physically.
* Every part of the pig must be eaten.

People think everyone in Brazil lives in a beach.
Letting them do it is the same as cutting the trees themselves.

What do you need more money for?

To buy alcohol, cigarettes, and other crap you don't need?

Official stats from the WHO

I would also question the accuracy of these stats.

No way that the following is correct:

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 17.6/100,000 (male) 4.1/100,000 (female)

My apologies, I just quoted what I've heard from a few other people. Makes sense in a way, Germany is the most influential country of Europe as USA is of the whole world.

I happen to like Germany btw, not the stereotype of it of course.

yes, that are the typical germans! but it's not completely wrong, we know that there's a grain of truth in every stereotype.

I don't get it. All Argies here think I hate them just because I'm Brazilian. I mean, I'm sure that if I had another flag there they wouldn't insult me as much as they do now.

Brazil is the biggest GDP of South America and the third of the whole America. Don't be fooled: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._%28nominal%29
