    i guess the user of this forum is spread all of the world, and most of them are in the us. so i ask you guys, are there any stereotypical views on sweden were you guys live? a stereotypical view of the us that we have, is that everyone sues everyone(you get what i mean).

    Heh. I barely think about Sweden. It's one of the 'lesser' countries in my mind.

    When I do think about it, I think Irish people eating pancakes. The United States in my mind seems like a place filled with a bunch of fat idiots complaining about their government and Bush.

    Dont forget about the rednecks! also, brunettes are nearly more common then blondes, or atleast just as common.

    Americans do not think about anything outside of America. The only way we learn about geography is if we invade a new country or there is a major natural disaster.

    What do you guys think about Canada?

    I've heard some pretty mean insults about Canadians by Americans. What does the rest of the world view Canadians as?

    Stereotypes that come to mind are that the Irish are perpetually drunk, while the Scottish are perpetually drunk and fight people. [​IMG]

    In the UK the uber stereotypical view of the Swedes is blonde, blue eyed, all girls are hot, guys all have 70s pornstar tash, sit in hot tubs and saunas, walk around naked 95% of the time, extremely open about sex and nudity, eat nothing but meatballs, talk like the Swedish chef from the muppets (herdy guerdy schmerdy lurdy), all houses bizarre modern designs, furnished entirely in minimalist IKEA stuff, neutral on world stage, swim through mountains of Nazi gold like Scrooge McDuck, Swedish banks only operate to allow people from elsewhere to avoid tax and launder money.

    Sweden- High Taxes, good welfare, blond hair, tall, blue eyes, IKEA, that chef from the muppets.

    What about Northern Ireland? Do we have a stereotype? Do people even know we exist?
