Falling with the norm, if you want a reference.. Japanese, German, Canadian, Icelandic, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Swiss, Belgium.. You can find them, if you care to look..



Ahhhh....nope....Canadian here, we don't have "Culture Police" up here that threaten loud Americans with arrest for trash talking our more left leaning government. Not sure how things work in the other countries you listed but in settings like the one you mentioned we tend to just politely ignore them whether they are American or Canadian...drunk or not.

I also hope for its sake that if you every have a child that is in no way remarkable and perfectly ordinary and average and normal in every single way or else you might be too weirded out by it and seek to punish it.


If i raise a human, good hearted and kind.. The rest for me would not really matter..

Why on earth the rest of you seem to think it is a problem that we do our own thing and live our own lives without being told what to do by an aristocracy is beyond me.


Problem is, you dont. You have an extremely bad centralized system that benefits on the weak and poor.. And it doesnt only affect your lowest social class, it goes out over your borders... Its parasitic on the helpless

Either there is a language barrier here, you are trolling, or are the real thing. I'm not sure what you mean by "Question was a normal human being", either way I'm just saying we don't enforce a system or beliefs even close to what you are referring to in Canada with your original story and then using Canada as a similar example.

I do encourage you to continue though, this a good example of some pretty extreme socialist beliefs that are best put out in the sunlight for all to see. I really have to commend you on the "if you cant behave as a normal human being you lost your privileges, just like dogs on a leash.. " comment, that is a beauty !

You seem to have indulged in the media of what is said of the USA. Point a gun? What does that even mean? over 320 million people in the USA of all kinds of cultures and over 300 million guns and a tiny fraction of people that actually use a gun negatively. The majority of the USA is filled with very good people that have no intention of harm to anyone. Please stop obsessing with the media that paints the people of the USA as gun toting barbarians. It just is not the case.

You are taking another question out of context and using it in the OT.. Which it is not

Ah, but your story was NOT about a centralized system. It was about one obnoxious person that you portrayed as being arrested for apparent crimes against being normal, not the government system of his nation.

And if that was your intent, then you failed and I suggest you take this back to the revision board. I think there was already an anime series that addressed this very thing by creating characters who were to embody the spirit of the nations they represented. It was called Hetalia - Axis Powers.

No, I think the question is valid. I asked what normal is and you said look up any country and listed a bunch that you apparently deem to be "normal" and Canada was one of them. Now you have a Canadian disagreeing with your assessment based on the limited characterization you gave in your story.

Im not sure you really understand the answers and questions, i answer a biased cultural question, everything that follows is out of context.. If you want it to fill a biased opinion, the Canadian answered another question with another answer, they had nothing to do with each other..

Apples and oranges..

If i answer a question and it doesnt fill your biased opinion, its kinda remarkable to change it back where it doesnt fit in?

What do people use guns for.......... Most people use them for sport, hunting and self protection. It is sad that anti-gun people claim gun owners are afraid of something... It is actually quite opposite. All the gun owners I know (many are democrat liberals by the way and love their AR-15's) will put our self's in harms way to defend our fellow citizens (even people we do not know) and our family. I will step into a fire fight to protect anyone. I don't need to know who they are and they don't need to be family. It is sad that people like you want to be delusional and think that if guns didn't exist life would be better. Guns are just a tool, people that want to do harm are the problem, not the tools they use. If it was not guns it would be something else. Unfortunately Humans are not perfect and probably never will be.
It is fun to think humans will someday evolve to be non-violent, non-greedy, non-self absorbed but that is fantasy.

No, the "Canadian" corrected you on one of your claims, there was no answer, questions, or anything out of context. This is your original story, and additional comments throughout the thread simply used against you.

I'm sure you'll just resort back to your "Out of Context" defense of course, but can we just skip over that whole tactic and as a favour can you please expand further on the "if you cant behave as a normal human being you lost your privileges, just like dogs on a leash.." comment you made.

Specifically can you explain what is normal human behaviour to you, what laws should be enforced to ensure normal human behaviour, can you give us some examples of un-normal human behaviour that would require correcting ? If you could do that it would be great. Again....maybe there is a language barrier here, but if I can try and explain, that comment comes across as quite shocking to both Americans and Canadians, it comes across as some kind of dictatorial etiquette law that could be widely interpreted.

A great read Gun violence in the United States

Do you think humans are Neurotic? Naive? Imaginary? You think we dont need laws? That people with weapons will use them in a peaceful way ?

Do you think a society needs laws? Or? Maybe everyone just works in a peaceful manner?

Ketsuko edited that line so it fits in the biased opinion, a cheap shot.. Ketsuko asked for the norm, that was the question.. Changed so everything fell out of context.. Didnt know i had to quote every single answer when it comes to Ketsuko, but thanks for the lesson..

Humans always used weapons to kill, a purpose and a reason

I think I get what the OP is saying here, a lot seems to have been lost in translation. The gist of what I'm sussing out:

"Americans are in dire need of an attitude check when traveling abroad. Be considerate in your host countries, you are only guests after all. TL;DR -- Have respect & learn some f%^#ing manners, ya loudmouths."

Assuming I've interpreted the OP correctly, I can't exactly argue with that.

I am almost convinced you are a bot. If not, have a good life wherever you are.
