If foreigners want to learn more about the Dutch and how we differ from humans I really advise this blog. It is written by a foreigner living in the Netherlands who isn't too impressed with the Dutch.

That reminds me of this site: http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/

I don't really recognise myself in that one, but the "Stuff Dutch People Like" is shockingly accurate.

Well, as long as you've got a clean one or two to clean your glasses with...that's all that matters!

What happens when you run out of clean shirts?  Is there a Walmart or K-Mart nearby?

About thrice a year I do a bathtub load. It takes a while for those suckers to dry though, so I can't use the bathtub or shower for about 2 weeks afterwards.

Why has the Netherlands such a reputation? All we're known for is a plant.

No, what you're known for is drugs, hookers, and not caring about anything. It's a whole country of teenagers. Produce something that doesn't cater to someone's base appetites, and maybe others will stop looking at you as a punchline.

You know, you are really helping stereotyping Americans as jerks the way you are acting (coming from an American). People like you make our country look bad. To generalize the Dutch the way you just have is really un-Christian. I can tell you obviously aren't from the Southern US because you are acting way too rude, and you are presenting yourself as having a superiority complex.

Somehow you referring to the US as "our country" doesn't sound right.  Tongue Do you feel yourself as an American now?

There are many questions you can ask to find out if someone is a true American. Here is a sample:

- In what Rocky film did James Brown appear?
- What song begins with the words "Born down in a dead man's town"?
- What is the only state in the Southeastern United States that is not a southern state?

You identified the artist, but I asked for the song. Also, you didn't put it in the form of a question.  Tongue  But yes, you got it...

Yes. Bonus points identifying you as an American if you don't know what the actual song is about, and you just sing along to the chorus.

I've never really listened to the Bruce Springsteen but I have a friend who is a fan of his. Somewhat random really since my friend is living his 20's. And I used to think that young people can't listen that kind of music.

There are many questions you can ask to find out if someone is a true American. Here is a sample:

- In what Rocky film did James Brown appear?
- What song begins with the words "Born down in a dead man's town"?
- What is the only state in the Southeastern United States that is not a southern state?
I don't know any of these and I don't even know what the last question means.  I'm a failure as an American.  Sad

Pardon for being an ignorant European but why it isn't a southern state?

I guess it's something about the culture, though some people would talk about the demographics and such (a lot of northerners move there, especially to retire). I'm not sure how exactly the culture differs as I'm fairly unfamiliar with Florida (lived there 8 months) and completely unfamiliar with the rest of the south. That's just something people say sometimes.

Because it's full of retired New Yorkers?

Actually, it is a southern state.  It's in the geographic south.  It was also in The South (Confederate States of America).  * must've cleaned his glasses with one of his dirty shirts again  Roll Eyes.

When I lived there I heard Floridians joke all the time that it wasn't a Southern state... so... maybe my ears need cleaned out  Tongue

They should probably be their own country.  That way all the stupidity that takes place down there wouldn't be a reflection on the rest of the country.

I actually laughed out loud for this. Sounds somewhat like Spain and retired Finns.

Maybe. Tongue  Just cuz they joked about it doesn't make it so.  But it is a southern state and it was in the CSA.  Floridians--what do they know, anyway?? (Sorry, Biro  Cool.)

Settle down Beavis  Kiss  I never said it was a fact, I just mentioned it as a question you can ask to see if someone is an American. Generally those type of questions are cultural things, not factual ones. Though I guess even some Americans haven't heard it. Hopefully that wouldn't have got TheTrisagion shot!
