Main Question or Discussion Point
Me? I generally find myself feeling mild animosity towards most of them. With a few exceptions.
what exceptions ?Smurf said:Me? I generally find myself feeling mild animosity towards most of them. With a few exceptions.
Yeah, I think you are wrong, personally. I see huge differences between east asians and canadians.Emieno said:Ok, It means 20% of their lifestyle and especially ways they behave and talk is just similar to those of Asian people, am I wrong ?
Are Chinese really that good in Canada and the US ? I doubt really much about this.
Aheem,Smurf said:What does Asian-style mean?
But.. I'm Canadian too.outsider said:will cause some emotions in some and thus the feeling of anamosity. I am new here, but I find that quite a few debates go off topic and become debates over individual credibility and it's very disappointing.
yes, I can see that.... so my point is that - you don't know what it really means to be american, and therefore you will not be able to fully assess something from the outside looking in.Smurf said:But.. I'm Canadian too.
so... Americans are better at understanding Canadians than Canadians?outsider said:yes, I can see that.... so my point is that - you don't know what it really means to be american, and therefore you will not be able to fully assess something from the outside looking in.
U are pretending to be confused, and that's just too badSmurf said:so... Americans are better at understanding Canadians than Canadians?
Or do you mean Americans get along with Canadians better than Canadians?
I got a misunderstanding for ya. What does this have to do with liking Canadians? Sure SOME Canadians will come in and act like they know more about America then Americans do... but why would that make you feel bad or good about em. Sure it can be considered a "trait"... but theres so many other traits that tell you more about what kind of person it is your talking to. Grammar nazis piss me off to a whole new level compared to Canadians. Plus of course theres the trait where people can turn any simple or humorous topic into a political thread. Boy do they ruin the day...*cough* Art *cough*.outsider said:I don't think being canadian has that much to do with it except for the fact that perhaps alot of the topics that get discussed are American oriented and Canadians (who, no matter how closely related, are not part of the american system or specific way of life) will not be able to have more than an outsiders :) perspective. Therefore a lot of misunderstanding and oversimplified speak (cuz this is the Internet) will cause some emotions in some and thus the feeling of anamosity.
But then you go right into saying who you like:Smurf said:I'm not gonna say who I like because then I'll insult everyone else.
And who you don't:Danger is one of the few that has earned my respect though,
Maybe this pseudo-poll would better have been titled: "I Don't Like The Quebecois Kid."better than that last quebecois kid who was here.
No, really, I'm quite confused. Firstly I don't agree with you at all, secondly even if you are right what the hell does it have to do with my liking Canadians!?outsider said:U are pretending to be confused, and that's just too bad
As I stated earlier:
"alot of the topics that get discussed here (on PF) are American oriented issues and Canadians will not be able to have more than an outsiders :) perspective. "
therefore: how can one fully assess something from the outside looking in?
I've read your other posts, and perhaps the anomosity may stem from a personal perspective rather than a cultural one. It seems as you are one of the prominent Canadian threadmongers - since you can't change the past, maybe you might want to think about how you are representing your country in your future postings :zzz: gnite
