Kazrath: Claude Ballse: 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.

I think it is just the fact that American's are nosy and feel they belong getting into others business.

Good example:

At work yesterday I had a convo with a couple of co-workers.  One guy was like: "If I was driving 80 and you come flying up on me at what I think is 100 I am not going to move over you can just drive slower".  So this guy who is going 15 over the speed limit wants to regulate me going 35 over the speed limit.  Both are speeding.  American's have their comfort limits and really like to enforce those on others.  The reason they are chatting is curiosity and their god given need to tell you how to run your own life and how to make your decisions.


Not so, we also overshare personal details.

Fubegra: <i>"Chicago was impressive with the lights and the big buildings there," he said. "It's a nice town as long as you don't drive."</i>

As a Chicago native, I'd have to say that's good advice.


well, you can drive, just make sure that you have lots of time, and $450.25 in random spare change.

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'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.

Pick: 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.


How much did she charge?

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.


Until they invade their neighbors.
