I have rare footage of either Neo or Slayer.

Dunno which. When he was a cop in San Fransisco.

Enjoy.

America, as a person, is flawed. Just like any person. Just like every person.




I agree.

We have a communist ranga from Wales running Australia.

We know she wasnt born here
And we are doing things far from perfect lately.

Ha! I was thinking of Krusty when I wrote that.

America needs a Comeback Special.

IF America was a person it would be Eastwood saying "Get off my lawn".

Second.


Ha!

America is a bit like Clint hey. Grand Torino style.

Or Unforgiven. The end of that movie is the best.

If America were a person, she'd be the most popular girl who is always invited to the party, but whom everyone secretly hates.

She'd be elected Homecoming Queen, but the majority of the audience hopes she trips on her way up the stage.

America would look like an average soccer mom; few extra pounds but no time for the gym.

America would know where everyone's keys, shoes, homework papers, and projects could be found at any given moment.

America's house needs a good scrubbing, but most everything is in its place.

America didn't comb her hair today, and some of her clothes are starting to look threadbare. But she's to busy using her telescope to spy on the neighbors to notice.

Bravo!! One of the best entertaining threads I have read in a long time. Very cool thread. Just posting a flag and star was not enough so had to post this little message.

Gregarious, class conscious, friendly but afraid, eye-contact staring, siddle up to you to sell you a watch and invite you out for a beer while insisting you come to church on Sunday with them then watch the game and talk about how much they hate going to church on Sunday.

Americans stare. I don't know if you guys know that you stare, but you do.

Do Russians next. It just about kills me to stand still when Russians (or other ex-soviet states) stand 2 inches from my face and excitedly talk to me.

I stare sometimes.

I'm an avid people watcher.
Where I live there are people from all over the world {Literally} just recently I was visiting a friend in the hospital she had a room on the 5th floor, I wanted some coffee so I took the elevator to the third floor where the hospital provides coffee in the waiting room, but it was temporarily taken over by a Filipino prayer group. I stopped and "Watched" for a few seconds, it was very interesting then continuing with my search for caffeine I hopped back on the elevator and rode it down to the 2nd floor waiting room.

As I exited I saw a family of Greek Orthodox receiving condolence from a Priest. I respectfully walked passed them to the waiting room where I met a chap from London who had just lost his wife. Had I not taken a few seconds and noticed him in the corner he would have been all alone.

I'm a people watcher. Some call it staring

I'm a people watcher too, but that's not exactly what I mean. Mind I've become very good at not being obvous about it because people will approach me and try to keep me there at the slightest opportunity, and sustained eye contact is an invitation for them to cross the street and come tell me about their life.
Though it does give you the opportunity to give someone who needs it a moment of knowing they aren't alone like that poor guy.

This is one of those small cultural differences between Canadians and Americans that Canadians tend to notice after a couple of days of being obscurely disturbed by some difference they can't quite put their finger on. Its an unexpected accumulating culture shock.

Americans just continue to look at people and make eye contact all the time and keep it. Canadians (in urban centers at least) seem to have picked up a small amount of the Asian eye-contact thing as part of the personal space / politeness thing. Eye sliding. People watching only making momentary eye contact.

It became really obvious for me when I was taking the bus in Washington. Just over the border, and yet the people (particularly guys) would just grab eye contact and keep it or try to keep it. A subtle subtle difference in eye contact rules, but in some way profound about basic cultural character.

(sorry to hear your friend is in the hospital.)

To most Americans the "Eye sliding" gives the impression of deceit or not liking somebody or as if they are more comfortable living in their introverted shells. Most Americans of Asian descent seem to no longer hold to those old ways.

Which brings up the possibility of a small percentage in this situation that since there are so many Americans of descents from all over the world that no longer carry those old country cultural habits that when some Americans do come in contact with somebody recently arrived they make the assumption they are just like the rest of us?
