Prejudices Germany - USA, the day after

First of I want to thank everyone, who answered my call for comments, either here, at reddit or per email. Some were insightful, some funny, some flat out insulting (as was to be expected *g*). As I wrote right on top, this prejudices are not my own. Well, most aren’t. So, don’t shoot the messenger.

I’m now gonna compile a list of “American prejudices about Germany”. Not sure how many, though. Since I can rate these better than the ones about America, I’m thinking of 10 bogus and 10 legitimate ones. What do you think?

Anyway, it’s 11:45 pm already, so I guess I’ll publish the list tomorrow.

I am not american (check my ip address to verify this) but people like you are extremely annoying.

You comment about Americans being short sighted, yet you have a block “about America” and I suspect you (1) have never been to the USA or (2) spent any significant amount of time, say perhaps, over 2 years in the USA.

So who are you to talk? I’m not going to bother reading your stuff because quite frankly people with no experience is worthless. As Thoreau once said “how vain is it to sit down and write when you have not stood up to live.”

You, haven’t lived, so to speak so who are you to write?

It’s good to see that you don’t bother reading whole posts, but jump right to the comments. Sounds very efficient.

I did read all of your article that I commented on, and determined them to be worthless opinions.

It is nice how in each one of your replies you fail to address or discuss any of the points I raised and instead simply make incorrect assumptions about me. What’s wrong? Are you unable to debate?

Nope, but I don’t think you have really read the posts. As I wrote, these are not my prejudices (unless stated otherwise). It’s a collection of prejudices you hear very often. In fact you commented on a post in which I clarified eexactly that. How often do I have to travel the world to make a list?

Why did I write it? Because I was interested in the other side. I wanted to know how Americans see Germany. So I offered a collection of the most widespread prejudices about the US. It’s a fair deal, don’t you think?
