I was thinking today (when I should be working laugh )...we have so many nationalities here on the geek, but about so many of them, I don't know a lot.

That's why I thought about this list.

What are the things that are typical about the country you come from or live in?

It doesn't have to be exlusive to your country, but what do YOU think is typical =)

Feel free to add!

Cheese! While there are a lot of other countries that make cheese, The Netherlands are pretty famous for it =)

Edammer and Goudse Kaas are known in a lot of different countries.

Clogs! The big wooden shoes that farmers wear, are called: Klompen in Dutch.

A lot of farmers still wear them. And in every souvenir shop you can get them.

There are still quite some left in the Netherlands. And it's a common sight on paintings that are about the Dutch landscape.

British people are good at queuing because it means we don't have to make a scene or point out that we are next. Both these things are too embarassing and as a nation we like to avoid such things. We also complain, a lot. It doesn't mean that we are going to do anything about the source of our complaints (bad service in a shop, being over-charged, bad food...) because that of course could cause embarrassment. We also discuss the weather. The weather is considered a suitable topic of conversation in many situations, and as our weather is so varied there is always something to talk about. It also is a safe subject we can all agree on. Rain is wet, the sun is hot etc. A way to make a connection with someone without embarrassment or discussing anything personal.

Rather than trying to find some typical about the United States, I thought I would find something typical about Oklahoma.

Oklahomans aren't scared of tornado warnings, they'll run out to look and then run for cover.

Oklahomans are very very friendly as a whole but we do have some butt-holes (everybody does)

Oklahoma is known for steak but you can find some great sushi, pho, gyros, kolachis all over the state.

Oklahoma is mostly flat but it is also has a huge diversity of ecology: Tall grass prairies, salt flats, sand dunes, rolling forested hills.

They say if you don't like the weather in Okalhoma, just wait a few minutes. This January we had a 72 degree (F) day and the next day was 30 (F).

Edited: I forgot to mention that we have the best damn state song of any of the 50 states. We sing it before every high school championship basketball game before every hockey game and during the 7th inning stretch at baseball games.

We drink.
It's legal to drink alcohol from 18 and that's ANY alcoholic beverage. Many teenagers will be drinking beforehand. Our Friday and Saturday nights in towns and cities are awash with drunken idiots who don't know when they should stop.
Drinking is NOT paired with eating. They're completely different facets of life. We may drink when we eat, we may eat when we drink, but generally we'll go out solely to drink, relax, chat and have a laugh. If we get hungry, we reach for the pork scratchings.

If we don't feel like alcohol?!

Then we drink....

Tea.

Tea is a beautiful drink, one of the mightiest cultural advances that we've enjoyed. You've had a bad day at work? Cup of tea. Your girlfriend has left you...You may go out to booze on beer later but first it's definitely a cup of tea. Your football team loses? Cup of tea. Your wife gives birth? Cup of tea. War erupts down the street from you? Cup of tea.

A cup of tea cures EVERYTHING. It's the answer to EVERYTHING. Take your coffee Europe and America. We'll take our tea, complete with it's antioxi-whatevers and theani-stuff and we'll pour some fine milk into the cup, take a sugar if you desire, and drink away life's worries.

Here in Michigan we think nothing of several feet of snow falling overnight, and many of us will still be trudging to work after this snowstorm.

Sadly every year when the first significant snowstorm hits people will drive around too fast, as if they've never driven in the winter before. So there is always a nice collection of cars lining the highway as you drive to work that day.

Also in Michigan we are divided into 2 peninsulas. Although there is one bridge (the longest suspension bridge in the Western Hemisphere) connecting us there are a lot of differences. Many UPers (residents of the Upper Peninsula) will express a complete disconnect from the lower peninsula.

Most notable difference in my mind: Lower peninsula = Majority are Detroit Lions fans. Upper peninsula = Since they are connected to Wisconsin, the majority are Green Bay Packers fans. (Man, I envy those UPers...)

Michigan is known for being a car manufacturing state. There are many places in this state where you can be derided simply for driving a foreign car. I still get some dirty looks from members of my own church when they see me climbing into my Toyota.

Korea is still a very fast-moving country, even after the incredible economic growth it has achieved over the last 50 years. Competition is fierce everywhere, people are busy meeting other people, new businesses appear everyday. On one hand it means you are guaranteed an efficient and speedy service everywhere. But sometimes I think we really do need to slow down a bit now.

Colorado has lots of mountains. People also think "Mile High" a lot.

However, a lot of people seem to think Denver is "IN" the mountains, just because it's a Mile High (which there are several landmarks in the city that mark the 1-mile mark). However, Denver is actually just NEXT to the mountains; the mountains themselves get up to 2 and almost 3 miles high

What we are most famous for is fosters and beaches.

But considering no one drinks fosters I will tell you some typical things.

* We swear, there is no inappropriate time to swear.

* We are relaxed workers, it doesn't mean we are lazy, far from it, on our days we can out work anyone, its just matter of stringing those days together. Work hours are flexible and we even have sickies which are days that you are 'sick', they are even partially legal.

* Kangaroos, the first kangaroo you will ever see will be dead on the side of the highway. No one eats it except for tourists that pay out the nose for such a common piece of meat.

* Beef, our steaks might not be as big as in america, but ours are just better. Plus you have no need to worry about mad cow diseases.

* Beer, I am not a drinker so I cant speak for our beer, only that alot gets put away on a friday evening.

* Music, we have AC/DC, the Bee Gees, Olivia Newton-John, John Farnham, Cold Chisel, Kylie Manogue...

* Sport, we love our sport, especially when we beat the poms or kiwis, too bad the yanks don't play enough international team sports.

* Our soldiers have fought in many wars, for many other countries. World reknown for our abilities and bravery. Some would call it madness but thats what we do when we got to war.

* Wide open spaces, we have lots, we also have alot of people go missing. At least 30,000 a year. 90% are found within the first month.

* We can make and take jokes, we make alot of friends and enemies this way.

* Inventors, we are a very ingenuitive being from a big open place with the closest neighbour a few kilometres down the road and england being a few months away we have learned to do everything ourselves. Here are just a few of our inventions.

- The Combine Harvester
- differential gears
- The Ute
- Black Box Flight Recorder
- Hyshot Scramjet Engine
- Hills Hoist
- The Electric Drill
- The Two Stroke Lawn Mower
- garage roller door
- Pre-paid Postage
- Xerox Photocopying
- Polymer Bank Notes
- Refrigeration
- Electronic Pacemaker
- mass production methods for penicillin
- The Bionic Ear
- vaccine to prevent cervical cancer

The most usual trait of the portuguese people is the capacity to improvise, and you can see it all the time. Don't have a screwdriver, no problem, with a little help from the nailclipper it will do it. No straight answer in a FAQ, no problem, just take the answer that most ressembles your problem, twist it abit and there it is. I've seen so many foreigners just stop on problems like this and the surprise when one of us just improvises a solution, from work to everyday tasks you can see it everywhere!!

Americans are famous for being profoundly ignorant of what's going on, well, anywhere other than America. Yes, that's a broad overgeneralization, and no I'm not talking about *you* Mr./Mrs. "About to write a reply about how you spent 2 years in the Peace Corps and you speak 5 languages and subscribe to 4 foreign language newspapers," surely you realize you are the exception.

And I'm not saying I'm wholly innocent of that myself, but at least I've reached the first step of the 12 step "International Ignorance Anonymous" program: admitting I have a problem. If you think you're so hot, play 10 Days In Asia and see how long you spend hunting for some of those smaller countries...

If you're a Canadian, 'nuff said!

I'm a dual citizen. I have both American and Canadian citizenships but I was born in Canada and lived there until I was 24. I am a Canadian at heart and I will forever bleed a sweet mixture of maple, Molson, Labatt's and HOCKEY!!!

It's hard to find a single Canadian that can't belt out the theme song to "Hockey Night in Canada", that doesn't know Don Cherry's dog's name (or at least one of the replacements: R.I.P Blue ), that's not directly related to or doesn't know of at least SOMEONE in the NHL, OR that doesn't know the words to "Fireworks" by the Hip.

If there's a goal that everyone remembers it was back in ole' 72
We all squeezed the stick and we all pulled the trigger
And all I remember was sitting beside you...


We are a united nation of Hockey fans!! And I miss home!!
