I'm also one of those accent-loving Americans.  I was in seventh heaven when I went to London over the summer.

And about the love of accents  (& Europeans in general) -- I am definitely guilty as charged.


Being the melting pot does allow you to indulge in this here in some capacity as well my dear.  :D

The mention of all that food made me very hungry.  Mmm...Nothing beats a corn dog from the State Fair.  OOH!  Except for fried pickles or oreos from the state fair!  Yum, fattening!

I love cheese so much!  OOOH!  And you can get fried cheese curds at the IL State Fair, in addition to the other stuff I mentioned.  Mmm...Dangit, I just had lunch and now I'm hungry again!


Shadow, aren't you married?  You naughty, naughty man!  :lol:

But it's true, we love Europeans!  Usually.  I've met a few that are as ignorant as some of my fellow countrymen.  I can't stand ignorance.  I had one girl from Slovenia tell me that the US is a horrible place (to keep it short.)  I pointed out that she's never been here, and that all the people from Europe who have been here that I've talked to loved it.  She just told me I was brainwashed.  ERGH.  Needless to say, I don't discuss my country with her anymore.  /rant

And now I must go work on my Ethics crib sheet,  for if I do not, I will do very badly on the test this coming Tuesday.

I really dont understand that accentthing. Atleast most of finnish people sound horrible, like potatos trying to mumble with too many rrr's and k's, while they're desperiately trying to speak something called english. And Russians with nj's... Ynh... Perhaprs its just easier for US people, if they dont understand what their partner is saying?  :lol:

Ok, cut the crap shadowman ! :wink:

Just today I read this in the newspaper under the heading 'through or false' :

"Americans aren't really interested in travelling..."

"True, or the destination should be Disneyworld because 70¨% of the Americans have been there. Less than 20 % of the US Citizens own a passport. The reason for this lack of interest on travelling :
- 51 % is afraid
- 26 just don't feel like travelling
- 6 % first would like to see America itself
- 7 % doens't like to fligh
The people who do like to travel have Europe as destination number 1 with a preference of Great-Britain followed by France then Germany"

This article was a side note on the coming US elections in one of Belgians leading newspapers, therefor I can assure you, the sources of this enquiry are 100 % reliable...

Any comments by the American bleeding guys ??

I am suprised that the percent of   "Want to see America first"  is so small!  Because that is most often the excuse I hear from people.

 In general Americans are workaholics.  Many take no vacations at all. They pride themselvess on that fact! So if they do take time off its usually to see family or because it is a  holiday.  
Most Americans only get a week or  maybe two a year of vacation time, not much time for European travel. Unless you are a college student backpacking through Europe one summer
break,  a  trip to Europe is often seen as a once in a life time thing they save up for to do later in life.

As  far as afraid...well American always seem to be afraid. I lived for a time in an a  large city.  My family was afraid to visit, worried they'd get shot or some such thing. Now when
I go back to visit friends are like "oooh, aren't you scared?" of what? "It's  ssooo dangerous"  ??? I guess looking at the evening news it can look  that way and that is probably the same place
 they  get the impression that Europe is sooo dangerous. Watching the news it looks that way. And it is partly due to the fact that  we don't  know geograph!, If something is happening in
 the  Ukraine well that's right next to Belgium isn't it??? :laugh:
