Only your inability to argue a point without utilizing personal slurs. I'm so impressed

That's why our GDP is more than double than that of the next competitor, right?
I'd say that your own statistics have just proven the above statement sort of superfluous. Twice so good as everyone else, eh? :rolleyes:

Funny, you call out the notion of a European generalization on a thread that confronts the generalization of 275 million people.
Excuse me? Where did *I* personally make a generalisation about any group of people? Find and quote the post in which I did that.

I dislike americans. I dont think there is anything wrong about making generalisations about a large group of people. Generalisations are a labour saving device. It means you can find people you like more quickly and easily in a given situation, and maybe learn how to deal with people more effectively and quickly because you recognise similar traits and you remember how you saw someone else deal with that. yes there are always exceptions blah blah. Yes there are always people who dont fit the stereotype. Yes if you have time, or your in a situation where you have to be around them its best to try and get a long. But I think stereotyping gets a bad name.

And which 'people in Europe'? It's a pretty large continent, you know. Perhaps you could be more specific.

Correct me if I am wrong here, but this post left me with the impression that you thought that it was unfair to generalize all of Europe into one category.

No one said that you singled a whole group out. I said I think it's funny that you're complaining about a person who generalizes Europe on a thread that is about the generalization of 275 million people. It's ironic.

Is that a picture of the American product "Barbie" in your avatar picture?

And, surely your name isn't a play off of the American network show Ally McBeal?

Stupidity like making claims about GDP per capita when I don't know what I'm talking about? Nah. Only when confronted by Slovakian ignorance.

...I suppose that was a tad redundant.

You really should learn when you quit. And, your excessive use of the "rolleyes" smiley just adds to your obvious inability to debate with fact as opposed to your Slovakian idiocy.

Ease up, now. Idiocy is an international phenomenon, and let's not let her drag down the good name of Slovaks.
