It really spooked me seeing all those hammer and sickles everywhere in Italy. What was the deal with that in the 70's?
I felt very uneasy walking the streets at night.

Actually I am single....LOL
I have friends in Germany and Italy I used to game with in Jumpgate.
My closest friend lives in Germany, we used to play UO together in 1998 and Jumpgate a few years ago, we are still close friends to this day. He keeps asking me to visit him.
I am sure those places I went to changed allot.
Hey......yea sorry about that post, Conservatives make me angry. Not much else does, but man they really get to me
Don't be terrorized! You're more likely to die of a car accident, drowning, fire, or murder! More people die every year from prescription drugs than terrorism LOL!

It is really really really almost not even worth responding because I know that you won't listen to any other point of view other than Bill O'Reily's or Dick Cheney's. I mean seriously you may just be the kind of person who watches the Colbert Report and think he's agreeing with your "ideals". I listen to plenty of reasonable Repblicans because there are some ideas of their's that I agrree with, but I can't understand how a depply rooted Conservative could survive past the age of 17. Wow...........I Mean Wow......................I wish I could comprehend it, I really do, but I won't because I know it's all just bullshit
Originally posted by outfctrl Originally posted by MadAce I'd say, come over here (Europe). Come see our upsides and downsides. And visit Japan and South-Korea. And South-Africa. Perhaps you did visit a few of those countries, I don't know. Perhaps when you broaden your horizons you'll be able to see your own country somewhat differently, and realize how it can be improved and know how to value its upsides even more.
When I was in the Navy, I travelled quite a bit. ( 1974-1979) The countries I have been to:Malaga and Torremolinos, Spain (OMG...the women were hot)Rome, Naples, Civitavecchia, Italy (Loved the Red light district and the food)LaMaddalina, Sardenia (Dead, nothing to do)Siteia, Crete (One whole block of women of the night)Mykonos, Greece (Party 24/7, stayed drunk on ouzo)Split, Yugoslavia (1st american Navy ship in their port in over 25 years...we were treated like Gods) Before the country fell apartToulon, Marseille, France (Toulon was fun, Marseille was very dirty)Gibraltar (Great English Pubs)Istanbul, Turkey (Top of the line Hash and a very dirty place) got dysentery there by drinking the water
There were a few more I went to, but cant remember. After seeing children go through our garbage for food and communist signs everywhere in Italy...I was glad to be an American. On the other hand....I met some of the nicest people I have ever seen over there. Plus, I learned to burp after I ate for the Italians....LOL They clapped when I did.
I agree with Praetoriani. Visiting Europe is completely different from visiting Europe now. In the seventies, we were still recovering from WWII. There was the fear of cummunists and nukes, Germany was split, yugoslavia still existed. Franco was in power (portugal was also ruled by a dicatator, although i forgot his name), the EU didn't exist (you had the EC but not the EU, which only came into existence after the treaty of Maastricht in 1991), We had colonial wars with our semi-independent (at the time) colonies in Africa, etc..
Europe has changed alot
Originally posted by AvyonIm actually visiting my parents in Germany right now and everyones been so nice to me (even though im trying to learn german and it sucks, they still try to speak english to me). suck as in my speaking.. not the language.. its just hard to learn hah!Im a world traveler myself.. I think its the people who don't get out and see other countries who are the ones who can't take a joke. Yea every now and then I'll walk into a place who hate americans or see some graffitti thats anti-american (in venice I saw a drawing of the two towers and something to the affect of "take that america" but the english sucked..) but everyone hates somebody... so I take it with a grain of salt.. *shrugs*.if I can I try to be as nice as I can to these people.. because I know most of the time its because they met with horrible travelers who don't know how to try and blend in.. who try to force their coutries habits on others.. oh well.. keep up the jokes.. but maybe try and put less anti-american jokes
Agreed. Racism and hate can happen everywhere. Everywhere where people are not willing to adapt to other cultures.
well.. getting to the jokes.. i say we blame it all on MadAce. None of us a responsible
what are the original texts? please?
yea.. theres no way you can properly translate that the humor is just completely different
Your argument is like a two legged dog with an eating disorder...weak and unbalanced.

I'm not talking about Muslims as a whole I'm talking about the ones who make the news (in America). Real muslims are a compltely different bunch than what is shown by American news.
