I disagree with this post, but not for the normal reasons.
I don't think being close to other countries would change anything. I mean look at the way we think Canadiens act. (American's impression of a Canadien) "So, eh, you wanna go play some hockey, eh?" And Mexico is just as bad if not worse.
A lot of us actually like to learn about other countries...
If you're talking about the United States of America, I hate to break it to you, but Canada is RIGHT THERE.
but Canada isn't enough of a different culture to count :p compared to the difference between, say, the USA's culture and India's culture
Are you kidding? We Americans care too much about other countries to the point they hate us for it.
We try helping people before ourselves and we get into other peoples business toooo much.
One of many reasons why America is soo disliked.
Translation: 'We are so good people envy us.Haters gonna hate'
I think where you are in the world makes no difference, Us down here in Australia are ages away from everything and we are still well cultured
Speak for yourself, I'm not ignorant of other cultures... but I do love the British and their accents... :D
Really now, so not only being ignorant of Canadians who accept many other cultures and are attached to you by the same large land mass, from the way that is said...it just makes Americans sound lazy and ignorant of everyone but themselves.
Well, you do seem to call us 'British'. That's culturally ignorant. We prefer 'English/Scottish/Welsh/Irish'. The British Isles is made up of 4 individual countries, not 1. Thanks. :)
Although that is better than just calling everyone English
I'm from New Zealand. How much further away could you get? And yet I'm still cultured in all different sorts of countries, I make more of an effort to learn about and go to different countries even though it's much more expensive.
clearly u don't know what america is
Australians and well cultured in the same sentance? What bullshit.
Someone has never been to Australia.
