For cryin' out loud, keep it a DISCUSSION and not so personal. It's a discussion forum, if you have nothing constructive to discuss, then by all means, don't...

I see nothing wrong with generalisations, moscowfella doesnt wish them any harm, he's just engaging in a bit of cage-rattling...good man, thats where most of the fun is.

Israelis are so bleedin mysterious lookin with their fancy facial hair and their 'im in deep thought all the time' expressions. I have a wee bugbear about army conscription though, i think it deadens their trust in others quite a bit.

Americans tend to be really cute and have to deal with a lot of bashing from us, you know, the perfect people.

Germans rock, dont fall for harsh exteriors, they are just timid because they have had to put up with the same stick the US is getting for quite a while now, adorable people on the whole in my opinion.

Australians, chaos, brilliant. You always know where you stand with Aussies, dont fear them, join in!

Kiwi's, you guys never tire of a party, unbe-frickin-leivable.

Canadians, too damn nice....these guys are definitely planning something!! Keep an eye on them!

The English. Aaaaaah, my old friends the English. How much money do you guys have??!! Most english travellers ive met are 17 years old.

I can't believe someone wrote this. If the poster wishes to be scientific, he would need to spend the rest of his life visiting hostels, under controlled conditions and, to be fair, he would need to visit every country in the world. Also, he would need to find a completely neutral researcher to investigate these nations. As any sociologist will tell you or pyschologist, the researcher can affect the outcome of the that is tongue in cheek - not the offending post.

There are idiots and nice people can't base things on nationality. That's how stupid wars start...

no, wars, (all being stupid) are because of money or religion.

This post reflects not just backpackers/hostellers - but people in general. And with that said, generelizations about those people. As in the generalization about 'wars' in previous sentence.

Its kind of like saying - if 6 out of 10 Aussies are drunk - THEREFORE - all Aussies are drunk, and in that regards, according to Moscowmeter, Annoying.

OR scientifically proven: If A + B = C, Then if 1/2(B) + C = TRUE, THEN: Annoying

Lads, behave.

Moscowfella was having a laugh. I dont have a problem if people call the Irish drunken, small-minded idiots. They are probably right. Are we not grown up enough to enjoy a laugh at ourselves and others without someone throwing a moral high ground into the picture?

Perfect people are so f*cking tedious.

'scientific', are you being serious?

Viva Moscowfella and Brendan and any of you other people who enjoy having a laugh more than pointing out imperfections in others.

Geez, seems this thread wont ever go away.

Why is it that only Ozzies, Kiwis and a handful of strong representatives from the UK and a couple other places actually get the parody? Or it would seem that people that like to have some real fun in life (ie. look at WeeJoes profile), these people are those that I want to hang out with. what was the song again..
I'd rather dance with the sinners than cry with the saints,
Because the sinners have much more fun, Only the good die young."

Joe hit it on the head, loosen up..please, all for your own sake.

Interesting how the most negative and controvertial thread has attracted so many posts, were all human, and wherever there are humans there will be the worst scum of humanity breathing the same misty air.

Does the canadian dude make asumptions on race and colour also or how about people who wear shorts not trousers, are you a black sock man or a white?

Because people who wear black socks are mean and rude however the other day an old lady in white socks held the door opan for me so they must be good. hooray!

I wonder if those who actually reside in the country also have some of the thoughts as moscowmetr?

Lets face it, in the usa the general perception is the French are rude. I have no idea why americans believe this as most have never met a french person. But it doesnt suprise me because as an american living in america, i am under the opinion that most americans come up with generalizations about anyone different than them.

Thus the reason why americans are lumped in the "no comment needed" ... its obvious -- they're retarted

ok lets see if i put my mexican foot in my american mouth -- i guess my ethnicity makes me a lazy pig...
