Beerhall. Quite unlike the North German blue collar depression fermentation units.

But yeah, mixing Norwegians and Germans won't produce a lot of impromptu conversation, you need at least one party that's remotely outgoing. Although I'd prefer some hot Mediterranean girls to U.S. truck stop residents.

I always love stories like this. It's nice to hear from someone who looks upon America with fresh eyes that reminds you just how much there is to see out there, and just how great a place the US is.

Well if they brought lefse instead of lutefisk, maybe people would talk to them.

Dont kid yourself. It is just another example of Americans not being able to mind their own damn business, something that the US is good at. If a guy wants to sit alone in a bar; leave the poor fark alone! Now the Germans, there's a people who knew how to mind their own business.

I think America is a fine country. I'm going to spend more time checking it out before going abroad again.

Just had a flashback to geography in grammar school in the 60's. We "drove" along the Lincoln Highway and learned about the states that way. Or maybe it was history. Or Route 66. I forget. It was the 60's.

Things must be crap in Norway if your idea of a good time is having ignorant fat dimwits start conversations with you in dank bars while drinking pissy beer.

Was at a bar in the Florida Keys one night, and made the acquaintance of a nice Cuban girl. She was telling me how nice people were in the Keys, compared to Miami. According to her, those guys up there are a bunch of self centered, selfish jerks, that have no idea on how to treat a lady.

CSB:

It's nice running into tourists in the U.S., since they are generally pleasant people and here because they want to be. When we went to Disney last year, we went during the off week that school starts and so the vast majority of folks there were from foreign countries. TBH the only people who were rude in general were the folks from Brazil (behaving the way the rest of the world assumes Americans behave on vacation) and it was great to hear so many different languages everywhere we went. OTW back to the hotel one evening some kid on the bus fumbled his mp3 player and Queens "We will rock you" blasts out of his earbuds. People beside him started clapping along to it and lol'ing in, I don't remember, I think it was German. Then the French folks next to them started stomping their feet, clapping and singing along in French and ten seconds later the whole bus is going along in about ten different languages. Was just a cool experience.

I don't remember the show or the host (senior moment), but he would find feel-good stories about average Americans all around the country. I could forget me rancor for the duration of the show.

Best story was about the dog that had fallen out of a car, but refused to leave the side of the highway. People tried to take it home, but the dog refused, waiting for its owner to come get it. So people fed it. One day it was found dead, hit by a car.

Though sad, it did show people can have a good heart too.

For sure.  As an American who moved to Europe, this is one thing I truly appreciate when I go back.  I always seem to have more spontaneous conversations with folks just going through the airport than I have in the previous month- and Europeans really won't believe that Americans would go out of their way to assist strangers in the way we take for granted.

The second thing I miss the most by the way is nature and wilderness in the US- I love The Netherlands for many reasons, but nature is not one of them in a country where every square meter is planned out (even the national parks have fences and houses in them).

Simpsonized Norwegians in a bar.  I'm guessing they're doing shots of aquavit.
 
2013-07-23 08:44:16 AM  
So a Norwegian, a Swede, and a Dane walk into a bar and they talk about their day. With an impatient sneer, the bartender asks, "are you guys Finnished"?

it shows we make great trucks in America! or something.

Or that mob of 30 black people who pulled that white couple out of their car and beat them to death in Virginia after they got into a car accident in the wrong neighborhood.

letrole is American. He just pretends that his handle comes from French ancestors, but trôle is feminine, which would make him latrole, and that is just one of the ways we know him to be full of shiat.
