I was interested in the stereotypes (besides Nazi) that Polish people have for us!

Accept stereotypes from a Russian?
There you go. Germans are:

1) cold, aloof
2) good engineers, hard working
3) ill-mannered (farting on public), loud
4) mean (the expression "nemeckiy schet" (German count) is the same as "to go Dutch" in the US)
5) lustful, shameless, pûrnography inventors

I should say on the whole your people are highly respected.

And we can all see why you think that :)

"mean" as in penny-tight? In the Netherlands we use the expression "to go American" for the same thing :)

M-G (tiens)

In Ireland we call "Irish coffee", just "coffee" :)

1:1 then. :)
I read somewhere that originally was "Deutsch" later transformed into "Dutch" as it sounded close enough for an American ear.

The Germans are seen as stiff and mechanical but let's put that to one side and feel the loss of the German national side in losing their first-choice keeper in an apparent suicide.

Enke, probably depressed after losing his daughter back in 2006, threw himself under a train and sustained fatal injuries.

Enke RIP, I hope his wife can move on!

I just don't like it if someone is pissing on his own people just to score some points, that's all.

The vinegar of truth that is your written word, burns their eyes when they read it.

LOL I was just wondering, I love my country, but we need to make fun of ourselves sometimes, agreed? :) Plus, I always knew the Polish stereotypes, and had always wondered what other stereotypes besides "nazi" they had

Depends on the way how you do it.

No, some guy named Mengele decided he didn't need the bits between the shoulders and the feet.

Polish stereotypes of other nationalities!?

I've mentioned in other threads before, there are stereotypes that are considered positive ones, such as Asian students being intelligent. In college I usually tried to pair up with Asian students for various group classroom projects. It was kind of like a guaranteed letter grade 'A' for my project.

I've also found other stereotypes sometimes have a kernel of truth. Such as Middle Eastern men being women chasers. Last time I dined at a Middle Eastern restaurant, I practically needed a bodyguard!

If you're asking me questions pertaining to dating black men, I wouldn't know the answers. I've never dated a black man before.

Yes, they do run faster than white men.

Heavens no, I would never ask, a lady such as yourself, such a debase question as to enquire in to any romantic experiences you may have had.

But I like the way you think :)

Yes, they do run faster than white men.

Thank you, I thought I heard that somewhere.

Yup

Cool, it's nice to doodle.

Well.. I do like to draw something amusing from time to time, especially when I see the situation pictured again and again :)
