everyone knows the stereotypical german that wears lederhosen and dirndl, the stereotype that has been made of the boverian culture. how does the rest of the world see germany?

EDIT: also take into consideration that every single one of my drunken threads has had nearly flawless grammar. this may be due to my mexican heritage.

I see it as a modern country with a strong economy and progressive values.


Edit: It's too bad they lost the Third Reich's impeccable sense of fashion and pageantry. Those guys know how to throw a party back then. Plus, the uniforms and boots... awesome.

I dont think that though. I just think, "Meh, Germany"

Me too. I imagine it almost like Canada, except a whole lot smaller (I think you could fit about 50 Germanies in Canada, although you could probably fit Germany's population in Canada two times over). Two exchange students were in my french class a couple years ago in high school, they were pretty nice and cool.

Yep

Hermes: We can't compete with Mom! Her company is big and evil! Ours is small and neutral!
That Guy: Switzerland is small and neutral! We are more like Germany, ambitious and misunderstood!
Amy: Look, everyone wants to be like Germany, but do we really have the pure strength of will?

Well as someone with very strong German heritage, I frequently hear the average Englishman's view of the Germans.

Most people just view Germany as, well, normal. Everyone has a good natured laugh about our history as countries to a degree, known examples of this would be Top Gear or the 1966 World Cup Final. Then there is the uneducated and consequently prejudiced among us view Germany as not a day past the Third Reich, which utterly sickens me.

Actually, Germany has almost three times the population and Canada has buttloads of completely untouched, empty land. Many, many times the population of Germany could live in Canada.

notice how Family Guy always portrays Hitler as very.........gay?


i don't think of Nazis or lederhosen or octoberfest, i just think of it as a place where people speak Deutch and have a "german accent".

i have a feeling it can't be too different from the rest of europe other than it's different architecture, but i really don't know

Yep sure did. Not as crowded or as expensive as Munchen. I think as far as cities go it's prettier too.

I wonder if I can go back to Germany? I got thrown out of E.Germany. Does that mean I'm banned from Germany now as well?

I've heard this too. I remember when my German cousin came to stay with our family and he came to school with me. Some dumb f*cks actually asked him if he was a Nazi, and some just point-blank yelled it at him. People seem to assume my ancestors on the German branch of the family tree were all Nazis, when you couldn't fall farther from the truth, considering my great-grandparents were gassed at Bełżec...

please, kjell, my name is ryan. I have no idea why the oktoberfest is in september, I'm half mexican. I can't know everything!!

But if you want tacos or burritos, you can come to me. I was a cook in a mexican restaurant for a while

but german culture doesn't really have a cuisine other than bratwurst and other wurst. an entire cuisine based on sausage? no thanks. I'm sticking to my mexican heritage
