Until it was made quite clear to me, over and over again, that for so many people in said other countries, I, and my mother, and my father, and my friends and colleagues, are - by simple virtue of our birth in a country it's for some reason acceptable, even obligatory, to hate - monsters. (And don't tell me it's about Iraq. Such attitudes were rampant in France in the mid-80s. Presumably elsewhere too.)

So DO NOT, Europeans, lecture Americans on their supposed superiority complex. Just look in the mirror. And don't be so shocked if we get defensive after a while.

I AM SICK TO DEATH OF HAVING THIS SORT OF ARGUMENT, particularly here, where most people are basically nice and non-political.

Now, I'm off line until Sunday evening. Eastern Time. Monday morning in the time zone of "civilized" people.

Has anyone seen how a biodegraded bag looks like? So, I had some things for more than a year in a bag that was apparently biodegradable. Today I needed them, so I went to take them out. My first thought when I touched the bag was: "who's torn my bag to pieces and why would they do that anyway"? You should've seen it, it was falling apart.

No one is arguing here except you.

You have to remember that Europe is a continent of many countries, and they have been at each others throats for thousands of years. In Europe it is very common for people of one country to make fun of another, and nobody takes it too seriously. This is what Americans don't get. Europeans DON'T hate America, they are just picking at it's flaws. Get over it, people will always pick on each other in jest. Grow a thicker skin, and accept that America is not perfect. Do we need to get into what Americans say about the French, the Mexicans, Russians, Arabs, etc.?????????????????

If you can dish it, learn to take it every once in a while.

I second every word! I can't believe someone can lose their rag over a satirical cartoon like that. Thank god I don't work for a Danish newspaper, or I'd be in real trouble!

btw Verso, nice idea of putting the flag counter in the 1st post of the SLO thread, didn't notice it before. I probably made 5% of french visits.

I also put them in the neighbouring countries' threads, so I can see how many Slovenes visit them. I had to wait 4 months for the first Chinese! Belarus is still missing. Are you in Slovenia now? Because the last French visitor was on 4th June.
