Germans are stuck up and are constantly trying to neg "lesser" countries in subtle ways, acting like they're doing us a huge favor by existing. The brits that come are usually just rude drunks that think our country is their fucking oyster to fuck, but they're at least normal when sober. Russians are a weird bunch, they're surprised that people don't speak their language and are very often flakey or change their minds on a whim, but they don't give out an air of superiority so I don't mind them.

the richer someone is and the skinnier they tend to be, so I guess the difference would mainly be between rich and poor communities

>Are attitudes different by region

Yes, parisian are the worst imo, just straight up rude/cold if you don’t know them kek. The extreme south and north are where people are the warmest and less stuck up in my experience. France is a very mixed country so it's hard to really describe all the intracultural differences but you can definitely feel the influence of the other country when you are close to the frontier. Idw if all of this was helpful to you, you might get better answers from other anons if you ask more specific question.

kind of related to >>977065 but I think we all are united by the habit of being too honest and not really prone to fake feelings in order to make someone else comfortable.

No. 977075

Its not about honesty but about French people and their govt believing that they are the most superior people (one of the reasons why a lot of French people don't speak English too well (I'm guilty too because it's my third lingo) according to one of my colleagues), acting as if they are in a pretentious high society, tend to be hysterical as hell and throw their mental illness at everyone while victimising themselves everytime they fuck up, yet their horrible behaviour towards others never change. They hate other frenchies and everyone else in the world but themselves, using people left and right. I do not want to generalize it, just speaking from the experience. I also used to be close with a French artist that would talk shit about everyone to me and argue with me and others all the time (over any topic. Her lack of English was showing a lot but she would always be convinced she is the one who is right and the first reaction towards anything is be hysterical and swear at others). Complains that she doesn't have friends while acting this way and talking only to people who would give her personal gain ("I'll talk to her only if you guys tell me how many numbers does she have").

No. 977080

you can't win with the french and language, either. They don't speak English well, which is fine, but they also will get pissed at you for trying to speak French.

If you want an example of French mentality look how they acted with Britain won hosting the 2012 Olympics.

No. 977084

North of France is closer to Germans, south of France closer to Italians and Spanish.

I am Parisian so I'll talk mostly about this : France is a very centralized country and the opposition between Paris and the Province is an important cultural phenomenon, Parisians being stereotyped as rude and snobbish while the rest of France is supposed to be simple and uncultured. The truth is that Paris concentrates most jobs and higher education so a ton of provincial people resent that they have to go there, but a substantial amount of Parisians" are actually from the Province, so this duality is senseless and source of numerous idiotic debates.

I am in an exchange right now in Germany and people love telling me they hate the French when I meet them for the first time. It's weird to start a convo by showing your inferiority complex, I never know how to react.

We perceive ourselves in this way but I actually heard from a Russian guy that he thinks French people are particularly hypocritical and people-pleasing in the workplace compared to other Euros (he just laughed when I brought up Americans kek). Workplace culture would be very interesting to discuss too

Not Spaniard but been living here for over a decade.
Restaurant jobs are easy to get, but you'll get treated like shit there. Long unpaid hours, free days are unheard of, they'll write 40h a week in your contract and payroll but expect you to work 60… Unless you can do something else it's not desirable at all. Wages are pretty shitty in every work sector but life is a bit cheaper than in the rest of Europe. If you want to come to one of the big cities get ready to either share an apartment with noisy students/welfare moms, commute for a couple hours or pay more than half your wage on a crappy studio apartment until you can share with someone you trust. Small towns are a lot cheaper but have no job opportunities.
Otherwise life's good here. Never too cold, AC everywhere in summer, people are really nice and laid back. Avoid the East Coast if you don't want to deal with brit colonisers (sorry, expats).

No. 977118

Rudest: Austrians and Germans. Assholes aflame throughout the year, but that could be because I'm Hungarian and therefore untermensch to them or some shit. Germans are nicer than Austrians overall, in my experience, but some are still salty for no reason.
I'll give Romanians an honorary mention because everyone I've met from that cursed country that wasn't a gypsy was very severely mentally ill in some way. I can't really explain it but it's like talking to residents of Silent Hill. We may have the highest suicide rates in Europe but those bitches be haunted.

The French have been alright in my experience, I've been to both Paris and other places and while I did get the air of superiority about them they've been relatively kind. My standards of politeness might be low though, dunno.

I don’t know if it’s my place to say, but Bulgarians seem kind of mean or cold.

I used to go and stay with my family there, I have been many times, and they would help me learn and pick up stuff, but it’s like you try to talk Bulgarian there and people are like ‘frick you for trying your best’.
Even if they don’t know you’re from abroad, people in stores seem annoyed by life, annoyed by everyone, and wanting to be better than everyone else. There are nice people in the countryside, families, but you do get a ‘dead inside’ feeling from most others.

The general ignorance itt is pretty funny actually. Like Britain isn't relevant anymore! anon. London is the second biggest financial centre in the world. Zurich is the only other European city in the top 10 and it's not even in the European Union lol)

And you should know you're talking to an idiot when they compare Scotland and Eng&Wales relationship and history to that with Ireland. That's the first sign you should stop listening lol. There's always been frustration with how London/Westminster-chattering-classes-centric things seem to be (this is felt among the English too) and that's usually what's meant by disliking the English. Scotcen, Natcen, whatukthinks etc has shown we all think very similarly about a range of issues. Ignore politically motivated opinion pieces and hunt for research if you want reliable info on attitudes. Example, Scottish people are actually less likely to think of themselves as European and just as opposed to immigration, although you wouldn't get that impression from some corners of the media, twitter or reddit lol.

I always find it ironic that a lot of European open borders left wing types typically fail to see that they’re playing right into the hands of the multinational/international capitalist class when they shill for mass migration and catastrophic demographic change the way they do. Europeans are usually more cognizant of this than Americans who rail on about muh FrEe MaRKetZ, but it’s the elite and money-grubbing businessmen who benefit the most from migrant influxes. Corporate stooges or bankers by and large couldn’t care less about national culture, safety, or stability. They simply need a new wage slave serf class to exploit now that Europeans aren’t having many children and the labor pool is drying up. Who else would they get to work their underpaid jobs nobody wants? And won’t anybody think about muh GDP?

Generally I agree, other than it's always been a myth that natives won't do shitty work or that the West suffers from 'skills gaps'. I don't know about other countries, but Tony Blair admitted he wanted mass immigration to rub it in conservatives faces and change the social fabric forever, esp via labour votes. That's how evil, short-sighted and naive elites are. You're right, it absolutely does effect national stability but they think they can "work with any people" as Eric Kauffmann put it. Which is nonsense. British elites actually admitted they thought Muslims would integrate by intermarrying with natives and become atheistic and liberal over time.

Just randomly remembered the time when some Polish company used Sonic the Hedgehog to promote their pickles. I wish I could translate the caption to fully convey the cringe but I don't think it's possible. It basically says "our little dragon recommends… tasty, crunchy pickles" but in a really embarassing way. And yes, green Sonic is supposed to be a dragon.

Have you seen examples of small companies co-opting well known intellectual properties in your country? In Poland it used to happen all the time, as well as in other ex-eastern bloc countries afaik. Green Sonic is a relatively new example, but I clearly remember snacks with knockoff Mario and Asterix on the packaging from my late 90s/early 00s childhood. It makes me weirdly nostalgic.

I love pretty books, but France deals with englo literature in such a half-assed way that it’s genuinely gross, not only are the translations borderline incorrect and rushed, but the book covers are just fucking outrageously terrible to the point that I genuinely wonder if it’s not some form of elaborate sabotage meant to draw potential buyers away from englo lit. For exemple, pic related is other countries VS french edition of The Song of Achilles. Despite it being a popular book, there’s 0 paperback editions, only a shitty pocketbook one. The review from Donna Tartt on some editions reminds me that The Secret History (so an actual modern classic) was also given 0 effort covers.

Why have you waited days for a response when it takes 2 minutes to find stats nona kek. Bingers, not functioning alcoholics. What constitutes binging is defined differently by country, sometimes the UK ranks surprisingly low. I think that depends on age/sex, so newspaper reports are misleading. From the governmental and WHO stats I've seen, overall Brits drink comparatively less annually, (Males 18 litres, females 4 litres, avg 11) but they report "getting drunk" more often at once a week. So, maybe even nothing throughout the week, but will binge on a weekend night out (which tallies with my exp), proportion who binge: Scotland (37%), Wales (30%) England (26%). "Binging" by the UK gov is defined as exceeding eight units for men and six units for women. In England, it differs by region, binge drinking is more common in the Northern counties. The North East has the highest proportion of binge drinkers and the South West the lowest. 1 in 5 Brits are teetotal. Higher-earning middle class males are more likely to binge contrary to the chav stereotype and the Daily Mail's sidebar of shame kek.

Not Lithuanian but Latvian (also high drinking rate), and yes, sometimes life can get pretty miserable out here. Declining + aging population, lack of opportunities for career growth, post-Soviet mindset and education system- actually a pretty large crisis in Latvia, there is a shortage of teachers and pedagogical workers here - violent abusive scrotes (speaking from experience lol) and a general cynical attitude towards government and life in general. I love my country, I am patriotic in terms of tradition, but sometimes it does get tiring having to have your guard up to other people all the time, on the street or in day-to-day life. You have to keep in mind that the Baltic states were for many years rules by other more powerful countries, so when the Soviet Union collapsed, it lead to both a patriotic mindset congratulating ourselves for having finally earned our freedom, and an insecure self-hating collective mindset once the people realized that 1) everyone emigrated to other countries like Germany or Ireland/UK for higher paying jobs and 2) we have a very fragile view of our own "identity", due to us having been ruled by either Swedes, Germans or Russians in the past.

True story - I once encountered a Latvian nationalist (a lot of those here) who said word for word: "Any Latvians who emigrate to other countries to work in a job that is in no way related to working for their country are traitors to their nation". I was shocked, but with time I realized that is actually the consensus amongst a lot of Latvians here. Love tour country but complain about it constantly and shit on others who decide to look for something better. anyways latvian rant over

Thank you for such a detailed answer. I didn't know much about Latvia but I guess it would shape your identity to have been ruled over for years, and losing your young citizens to more economically comfortable countries.

I hope life gets better for Latvia, and honestly I can see parallels to Bulgaria in the average citizen being cynical, distrusting of others and introverted, as well as having youngsters wanting to leave. Post communist countries seem a little depressing sometimes. And I wouldn't have guessed that there were abusive guys there, I thought that was more of a Russian thing but that still sucks.

The only awful thing is the economy, but it has always been bad since the independence of the colonies, at the earliest, so just we just get by or get out of the country. It gets less shitty in some places like Madrid, Basque Country, Valencia, the coast of Catalonia and some regions on Andalucia and Galicia.
People are normies, but, at the same time, walking shitposts. I don't know if the modern era made us more unhinged or it has always been like that.
We are the same and we have strong differences between us. A Gaelician won't have the same language and mannerisms as a Madridian but will have the picaresca on them, aka tricking the system with small things, kinda hard to explain that thing to fellow eurofags.

Huh, I romanticised France a lot, so your description is surprising and disappointing. I like French skincare, read French books, read books in French, cook French food, consume French music and media, play compositions by French song writers, watch French YouTube, meme my sister into learning French so I can speak French with my sister, read about French history on Wikipedia, study French, dress like a French, try to smell French (i keep lavender in my room, wash with vintage soap, spill flour on myself and walk into cigarette smoke), and plan to travel to France. I really wore a beret to school and also a striped shirt, and have considered changing my name to a version that sounds more French and French people could pronounce. I really think I was French in another life. I accidentally use French words in sentences and know French laws. I have a partial German background but it’s from the part that literally touches France, so I’m almost French. I hoped to study in France and marry a French woman with strong arms from crafting baguettes all day, and we would open a bakery and I would be playing Debussy on the piano and all that.

Yes, this has been happening to many Western European cities, it seems that every time we are called to take in child refugees and vulnerable people (reasonable), fighting age men appear, who generally hate our culture.

>>989296 yes technically I am a ouiaboo kek but our school made us learn kids’ songs in French, celebrate French national holidays and we had teachers from France. I guess I didn’t get an unbiased look at it like a native would. It’s an expressive language to me but the grammar makes me want to ‘express’ myself by pulling my hair out lmao

>>989497 I think England should be lower because even during the day our high street is almost void of shops, these remaining shops mostly being kfc and charity shops. There is a genuine smell of feces in the high street and lots of people in tents in the street. I have been followed and harassed as young as 13, and even walking to school ‘lads’ will yell at you from their cars or throw glass bottles at you. ‘South Asian’ men look at you like you’re shit on a shoe or yell at you too, you just avoid those areas, as one of those guys tried to rape a family member of mine and stalked a young family member, but they say at school to ‘not be racist’ and to ‘check your privilege, white privilege’ etc. Even if, in your year group, being white makes you a minority. A lot of them hate us and don’t want to integrate. And then even during the morning a guy tried to molest a boy walking to school, or multiple stabbings in broad daylight. This country feels depressed and what was once pretty houses and high streets full of life are now retail parks and formulaic new build neighbourhoods, and the coldness of southerners. And you know how many parents, teachers, friends, kids are doing hard drugs and just don’t talk about it? You know how many teenagers without loving parents got groomed into trafficking drugs and ended up with stab wounds? You know how the police will harass you for walking stiffly or saying something mean online? I’m beginning to feel very sad about my country. And to clarify, I’ve never had a problem with mainland Europeans like Polish people, my mum immigrated here too and they feel like neighbours to us, normal people you would feel familiar with. Never had a problem with a few other immigrants too. But yes, if you hate me, I hate you back, and this applies to some groups of people.

You can understand why some people go extreme. I genuinely want the best for women and children escaping from terrible situations abroad, and I would let them in- but I don’t give a shit about letting le poor migrant men immigrate anymore. The rich people from Home Counties (counties near London, better funded), vote to import more, because they have that middle class guilt and they don’t have to live with them as they can afford higher priced locations, mostly white and middle class and self righteous. And lots of England isn’t like this, you could move to the South West, home counties, or the North, and people are warmer and there are places that aren’t like this. My view is not from someone from a lively, safe, fun area, and these do exist.

Sorry for ranting here, it just feels sucky and it’s not ‘acceptable’ for me to complain about it. I’m sorry for ranting, but this is the only place I can express it.

I agree.

Maybe because where I used to live it was common for poeple of all ages to still be outside after 10 pm or later, whereas here it isn't, unless it's the weekend maybe. Could also be that I've noticed way more refugees here and I don't have anything against them in general, I'm just against those who stand around in groups, destroy stuff and catcall women.

Yeah hard disagree. I'm someone who does book covers for a living. Turkey's is fine. Just fine. I like a maximalist shit but this one falls just a hair shy of truly embracing it.

Netherlands could be fine but the text is poorly placed, which is a shame, really, because the typefaces are pretty well chosen, the colour, illustration and textures are beautiful. It really is a shame because if the justifying on all of it was better, this one would take the cake for me personally. Spain is pretty though it's very 'final year design student' kind of cover, but it works, it doesn't have to be revolutionary. France's is beautiful, nothing mind-blowing but it's good enough design, and anon, if there's ever a place to go balls to the wall emo gay drama, it's media regarding fucking Achilles.

Are sunscreens unavailable in stores and pharmacies during winter in your country too or is it just my retarded balkan country?

No. 1000969

Never unavailable, but they’re not displayed prominently like they would be during spring/summer. It’s only in the last few years that sunscreens with an SPF above 30 are even sold in mainstream stores though. Before that everyone would insist that sunscreen wasn’t even necessary unless you’re going to the beach and would tell my sun allergic red haired ass to “just get a tan lol what are you afraid of”

I used to buy Biore sunscreen directly from Japan, it was actually about 50% cheaper than buying it locally. The only reason I stopped because the EU decided to put import charges on goods from outside the EU below 22 euro now too which causes ridiculous extra costs. So if you're outside the EU I say look into importing sunscreens from Japan or South-Korea, they have good stuff.

I’d repressed that one but thanks for reminding me.

While we’re on the subject of creepy live action Dutch children’s shows, did anyone else also really hate Kloontje? For some reason the others like Sap didn’t bother me so much but something about Kloontje the giant child/child of giants was fundamentally offensive to me as a kid. Like she’s supposed to be a large young child acting like a child but clearly it’s just a normal adult woman acting like a retard.

I used to buy cosmetics from Japan and Korea too but packages kept getting lost in the mail and it wasn’t worth it to pay tracked shipping for €10 worth of products, even before the new tax. Right now I buy from a local reseller which has a markup but only a minor one imo, plus next day delivery vs. waiting for a month to see if it shows up at all. I don’t know if there are resellers like this in the Balkans though.

Yeah, I dislike most child characters played by adults for this reason. It's just uncanny. I don't know if showrunners actually think children act like that, or if they think kids just enjoy seeing adults act like over the top retards. When I was a kid it always got a visceral reaction out of me that looking back I can only describe as 'cringe'.

How do you decide what country to move to? I like the ideas of few but tbh idk how much of what people say is reality.

I'm fluent in German and English and pick up languages fast so I don't think that would be a real issue but I just can't choose. Switzerland seems nice, Norway too but idk.

The whole process and the chance to get scammed by a landlord seem really high

No. 1002051

I'd base it on living standards, economic welfare and job opportunities in your field. Are you an EU citizen? Moving to an EU country as an EU citizen eases the process a lot so that's something to take into account. If you remain with a list after that.. culture; some cultures are more accepting of foreigners than others or you may wanna choose a culture closest to your own, climate, situation on the housing market, safety, living costs… A country like Switserland sounds good in theory but the cost of living is sky high, something to take into consideration.

No. 1002071

Yes, I'm croatian so the eu part won't be a problem. I've never been outside my country and poor so I never really had an interest in other places. Thabk you for the list, it'll be helpful!

If you can't choose, you should move to where you know someone. I am croatian too, my friend moved to ireland and she had friends there who went to look at apartments in person in her stead because apparently there are lots of scammers who list apartments that don't exist online. If you have someone to help you in the beginning it will be a lot safer and easier; they can help find a place for you to stay, they can tell you what to look out for, what to do and what not to do because they've done it too.

Why do people calling Czechia "Czech Republic"? It's longer and I don't understand, why exactly this country is exception.
There is! One of the biggest memes of russian imageboards in 2000s is from Belarus. Local bakery company redesighned waffles, but images for packaging was probably stolen by person who doesn't watch anime. So weebs immediatly spotted Haruhi Suzumia in "Yulechka" waffle and Reimu Hakurei in "Olenka" waffle.
There's all images if you want to see and some other examples of plagiat: http://lurkmore.to/Вафли_Юлечка
Also your post reminded me of this commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jC3pGcRHeQ0

I checked, this site just asks respondents where they live and what they're think about crime in their country. First of all it depends on a region of a country. In Russia Moscow is safer than most of Western Europe, while Tuva has crime and murder level higher than in Brazil. Capitals are more rich, safe and other shit. In Belarus 20% of population lives in capital. Also site is in English, so surveyed people were more educated if they can uderstand another language. Still doesn't understand, why Belarus so low. My guess is casinos. In most of post-Soviet countries casinos are banned or restricted except Belarus. So Minsk is basically a Las-Vegas of CIS countries and it causes crime.

A friend of mine has been reconnecting with her Polish heritage the last few years and she’s seemingly gone off the deep end. She has some grandparents who are from Poland and she’s only visited a few times as a child. She’s gotten super into Polish politics and history and now she’s gone from a pretty liberal burger to a complete right wing nutter. We were talking about Holocaust restitutions and I brought up how it’s kind of fucked up how Poland refuses to compensate Jews who had their property taken and she started sperging and freaking out about how Poland was not very antisemitic or collaborated with the Nazis. She insisted that if anything it was Jewish people helping the Nazis more than poles and the general Polish public were the uber victims of ww2. I just feel so insane. She’s now planning on getting her Polish citizenship so she can live there and I honestly cant wait to not have to see her again.

I know they won’t be considered as part of that country. But if you’re half Irish or half German then good for you. It’s better then being a weeabo, koreaboo or consoomer. It’s natural instinct to want to belong somewhere, and although I’m no burger I would be proud to be an American with European roots, knowing my ancestors came a long way, worked hard, had their own stories to be proud of. Actually I see European Americans as cousins who moved away. Furthermore, modern Europeans are often out of touch with their cultures, as globalism, the internet, and weaker family structures weakened cultural ties.

To me, being proud of your culture means remembering traditions, learning your language, remembering where you came from, trying to honour your ancestors with your actions, looking after your family, and being the best individual euro you could be.

Ethnic identity is not something you choose, but something you are. You belong to that group because you share a conditioning nobody outside that culture can share. A combination of language, sensibilities, looks, and experiences.

What's the difference between some American choosing Poland instead of Japan? Being wapanese is a meme, so it gets ridiculed more, but everything you can say to a weeb applies just as much to the Poland fan.

If you're American, participate in American culture, cherish American traditions, be the best American you can be.

Blood and heritage doesn't mean shit, racialization should die.
>It’s natural instinct to want to belong somewhere
But they do belong somewhere? They're Americans. USA is a whole ass country with its own culture (and yes, I know it's an unpopular opinion but they do have a culture). You know what would actually make sense imo? Celebrating, learning and reconnecting with Native American culture, it will never be the case because America is obviously too racialized and stuck with colonists' history to make it happen. Celebrating the native folk culture of your land (thanksgiving doesn't count for obvious reasons kek) sounds pretty cool.

You’re right, America has a culture, where there’s people, family, values, there’s culture. But consider: you can inherit a goblet from an ancestor, hair from a grandfather, temperament from your father, morals from your older relatives and eyes from your mother. When I am surrounded bu family I see how we are linked through these things- and I feel at home in what I have in common with them. Inheriting my area’s traditions, that’s home. If you want to celebrate your heritage, start with honouring your family, act in a way to please your ancestors, and then learn old songs, remember how they used to celebrate spring back home, use the old words. Because this all gives you a sense of identity and reminds you that you belong to something greater than yourself, your people. It’s coming from a place of love. If an American wants to celebrate being American and Irish, and enjoy both traditions, then let her celebrate, if your family is involved with it and passing things down it’s not a larp from the internet, but flesh, blood, belonging.

I think coming from growing up in a house with extended family where we look after each other and elders passed on traditional dances, recipes and songs meant a lot. And the village I grew up in was very steeped in tradition that outsiders wouldn’t know about.

I don’t see native American culture as a heirloom for European Americans, but I agree it should be remembered and preserved. And if you believe America belongs to natives, then it only makes sense for European Americans to celebrate European and American traditions.

I think flesh and blood thinking is entirely natural. I love going home and seeing people who look like me and familiar ways of speaking. Where I live there’s little cohesion, and you may stick out for being ethnically European, and people would stay in their own groups, looking after their own. It’s nice in some ways, but it can be lonely in that you will have less in common with people on the street, you will care for and understand each other less. I get that some people want to live like that, I like living with different people myself, a little diversity can be cool. But I also like to feel at home with my own people. I would even feel at home with other Europeans like Italians and Polish people. I like my own people, is that controversial?

It is sad to see the way some young Europeans and Euro Americans see themselves as ‘bland’ or disregard their own people. Not looking out for their families, fetishising other cultures, wanting different/ethnic features. Now that I celebrate my blood, I love my features, my family is written on them, I love my colours, and I enjoy my history and my family. There’s a sense of duty and pride in my ancestors (as in I know their stories) that makes me want to do them proud. I’m more dutiful to my family, I’m happier in who I am, and cannot be made insecure as a European/white girl. If I was Indian, I would be proud to be Indian, if I was African, I would be proud to be African. It’s very healthy, and stops you from being exploited by the beauty industry and race dividing media outlets. I will say again that my feelings are only from a place of love. Every race has beauty that it’s people should be proud of. Why not us?

W.I.T.C.H will always remain the better Winx imo, but I think that the reason why Winx people are so proud and try so hard is because they reached success "by themselves", unlike W.I.T.C.H which was bought by Disney and had a massive help stemming from Disney marketing

I will have to disagree. If you can be ‘African American’, from being an American whose ancestors came from Africa, you can call yourself ‘European American’, although you are not like a European generally, you will have roots there. I prefer the term ‘European’ to white because ‘white girl’ or ‘white woman’ to me has been used pejoratively a lot. ‘European girl’ reminds me that my identity is with my continent and people, which is rich in culture and discovery.

Little shits throw them out of car windows at unsuspecting pedestrians or throw them onto busses full of people (and since disabled people, pregnant women, children and elderly people sit at the front, they're targetting the most vulnerable).

I'm Hungarian, compared to Western countries I have to say our men are more tolerable to talk to. I don't know why, they're just less up their own ass. It could also be that Western men look down on me because of my nationality, but whatever it is, they piss me off and I can't stand talking to any of them without wanting to wring their neck like a baby bird. They're unbelievably condescending and full of themselves and never fucking shut up. British men especially, if I could create a virus that would specifically kill off all British males I would. Fuck off out of my country.
Hungarian guys can be awful or they can be okay, but one thing they all have in common is that they never do any work around the house and act pissy when they are told to clean up after themselves. On average they're more autistic than even your average German and love to pity themselves. There's a lot that try to act tough with girls and then seethe when women don't want to go out with them. I would not have children with a man from here, because that would mean having two children, but one of them is hairy, ugly and talks back too much. Some make okay boyfriends.

I don't, it's a waste of money in large cities. If you think you'll only use the car occasionally, look into rental cars. I don't know if they're a thing in other countries but where I am, in big cities, there's cars that you can like rent in an app and they're left in public parking lots. If you only drive a handful of times a month it's way cheaper than owning a car.

Car anon here. Tbh now isn't the best time to buy if you don't need to. There's an inventory shortage and you're probably better of waiting a year when the prices drop.

Rural areas are emptying with only geriatrics left, and you can't walk 5 minutes without seeing a couple companies begging for wagies in mid sized cities. The city I live in has an average age of the population of 50 fucking years and like 120 males per female, despite there being more older women than older men. In some towns its 130 to 100, because women move out of this hellhole (I will too, if I stop procrastinating). My demographic (women between 20 and 30) makes up about 5% of the population here.

Have any of you considered moving elsewhere in Europe/the EU after finishing education because of little job/housing perspective in your home country? I've heard people in my circles (mostly 20's or so students in higher education) talk more than once about trying elsewhere because there's little to no perspective for buying a house and starting a family in your 20s or even early 30s here. I'm from Western Euro btw. I've even heard people mention Slovenia and Croatia as potential countries to migrate to, which surprised me initially because of the low living standards but maybe it makes sense because they're relatively cheap and not overcrowded countries afaik. Now I don't think many of them have concrete plans of moving abroad but just the talks of it do say a lot about our future opportunities here and it does make me wonder if migrating could be an option at least worth considering.

Ah, I'm polish too; I think we have far FAR less reasons to worry than countries like Belarus or Moldova. Knowing our history it's not wise to say anything is impossible but at the same time I don't think Russia would want to touch European Union country any time soon. Would EU actually care? No idea, not like Poland's allies cared in 1939, but Russia has a fraction of power it used to have and it doesn't seem like they would do a gamble like this.
I feel awful for Ukrainian people though, I'm working with many and it's terrifying to see this completely abstract to us concept - being invaded - suddenly become that likely reality to them. Seeing all the recent reports about other countries supplying Ukraine with weapons and USA evacuating their embassy makes things feel really inevitable even though I struggle to wrap my mind around it. Let's hope it's all stupid flexing and things will calm down soon.

No. 1040792

Poland is a NATO and EU member, same as the Baltic countries. It's why Russia can only do (admittedly hilarious) stunts like the refugee thing to mess with them.

Ukraine and Moldova are in a rough spot because significant portions of their population do actually kinda want to be ruled from Moscow, and neither are part of some larger alliance that would protect them.
So the Russians have a strong incentive to mess with them (bring areas populated by Russians under Russia's control) and little to worry about (economic sanctions at most). It also means they don't have to full on invade the country to achieve their goals, they can keep poking at the issue and destabilize the region until eventually an opportunity presents itself for a peaceful take over, like what happened in Crimea.
If Russia had wanted to actually invade they could have done that during the hot phase of the civil war. Of course context changes, but I doubt that actual war is something the Russians intend.

Nonas how bad are thieves in your country? I want to visit Barcelona in the summer to see family and my mom and grandma won’t stop sperging about how bad the street thieves are. They keep telling me stories of how men have literally snatched the jewelry off their necks and ran, purse snatchers all those kind of things. And that the police don’t give a shit and no one around will help you because it’s so commonplace. They said it’s like that in most large cities in Southern Europe but idk if they’re just being dramatic.

Im a spanish nonny and I don't think it's worse than in any other large city. But as long as you steal anything valued under 400€ you only get pretty much a slap on the wrist in this country so violent theft is definitely increasing.
If you keep a good eye on your items you're normally fine, older ladies are usually the target.

No. 1060273

I don't think everyone thinks that way not many people blindly follow their religion's rules or take them quite as literally. I'm in turkey and most of the people hate Arabic view of Islam which twists what's actually in the book to rule the country better. Yes Islam is misogynistic, as any religion is, but you have to realize that the society it was brought to, women were considered objects of men, either whore or wife nothing more. Little girls were buried alive and dug their own graves if old enough. Women had no rights. Islam was a step in the right direction for that era, although it's quite backwards when you compare it to modern law. A proper Muslim woman or man shouldn't judge or try to invade(Muslim refugees also tried to invade our country btw, even though our country is %99 Muslim lmao) non-muslim countries. It literally says in our book and our prophet himself never started wars, he only fought back when another nation attacked. I hate it when some retard tries to use Islam to justify their hatered for non-muslim people when you're actually supposed to treat non-Muslim people with kindness so they might want to learn about Islam more instead of forcing it upon them when they're clearly not interested. Also the group of Muslim men treating non-muslim women as "whores" is because they're quite literally retarded and assume from the shitty shows they watched, those women will have lower standards and fuck them easier compared to the "uglier and darker" middle eastern girl who usually wont have premarital sex.
Also this kind of thing is very common when third world citizens go to first world countries and then get shocked that they have to behave like them and fit in the culture. Also the pork and wine thing is hilarious to me. Like I get it… The adopted child eats pork at the new christian/etc. family but are they going to feed the child wine? Literally insane what these people came up with so they could cry about losing their the very child they were actively abusing.

No. 1060369

>not many people blindly follow their religion's rules or take them quite as literally
Not that anon, just wanted to say I agree with you, it's more a case by case thing. I've known a lot of people calling themselves Muslims because they believe in the abrahamic god, don't eat pork and were raised by moderate muslim parents and sometimes they try to fast during ramadan, and they don't do anything else. Extremists are way easier to spot than them usually because they won't stfu about it despite the topic not even coming up, I've had some people calling all sorts of names for not fasting despite me not even being muslim, just because they think I should be one because of my ethnicity.

>It literally says in our book and our prophet himself never started wars, he only fought back when another nation attacked.

It doesn't matter because at the end of the day you're talking about just one guy and the religion still exists more than a millennia later. Not that long after the prophet's death, several countries in Africa and Asia got invaded and the religion was imposed on these countries centuries ago and it's still affecting these countries today.

More minorities people see, especially if they're separated by majority and are from lower economical classes, the more racist they'll grow to be. Americans separated minorities from whites and didn't let them have education and career opportunities in the past, leading them to have higher rates of crimes and unlawful behavior in general which in turn made people grow more racist. In my country black people usually study and work and don't ever commit crimes so there aren't anyone being racist towards them but the immigrants that don't work face racism because again, they are are of lower socioeconomic standing and because of that, commit crimes more often.

This is how I translated it:

[I must] Complain with my mouth and burst into tears with my eyes,
This regret I grieve is so strong,
That my sighs, which hang always in the air,
Make me faint and hinder my words,
So that I’m forced, and by this mean,
To silence myself and finish my conplaint.
Following is the Epitath spoken through the mouth of the deceased

Like everyone, in this misfortune, fall,
Under this massive tomb,
I am dead, alas! and perished before the age,
Without having any respite despite the advantage
Of youth, wich I possessed,
And of beauty, so lavishly adorned,
Of wordly goods which I also acquired
In large quantity, when I was born in Gennes,
Where I lived quietly,
And til this day remained

I never thought this part of my stupid degree would one day be useful

I am russian but i migrated long time ago. I knew shit was coming when COVID started, US told Austria to kick out diplomats for something that didn't have any proof, then US and RU both making drama that included visas (US told to kick out all of the Russians out of US, something along the lines and Russia said the same towards Americans), etc.I think the recent worst thing that happened (and I am surprised people don't talk about it) is that Germany cancelled all of the study visas for _Russians_. So people who got accepted into German uni won't be able to study there. Not sure how it affects the current students.
Even without it it's pretty difficult being in central EU, honestly. I got yelled at and a person started talking shit about me for being russian back when I went to job applyment place, it was tough. Back when I moved I went to a hairdresser, she told her friends n colleagues that her client is russian, she admitted she got scared because everyone started telling her how bad they feel for her and that she should cancel it ASAP, that she will have a bad experience, etc, so she got surprised that I act like a decent human. At one point you get used to it, really. The only thing I find annoying is when people cant tell the difference between ukrainians, belarussians n russians, but can you blame them. However, generalization sucks…
As for Poland thing, I am incredibly worried. I know nothing about Poland, I admit, but I've got polish friends and I feel terrible for them about the abortion law, etc. I think 'the wall' that their man is trying to build (while also now saying that russians will be banned from travelling to Poland) terrifies me. Russia in general is a fucked up country, our police put a kid to jail over Minecraft just few weeks ago, I spent the night crying because of mix of this and all of the sanction news, along with Ukraine 'war' is just…blergh. I honestly don't think any war will happen, really. Putin and his army are known for not being able to do anything but scare the people away, and it's easy to do that since english media knows nothing about Russia, while also being biased or just using bad sources (without actual checking) over the news, down to simple stuff such as back when a disgusting russian streamer killed a prostitute live on twitch, the eng media kept claiming it was his gf and among other BS things when in reality it was a prostitute. And things like picrelated happening all the time makes me sad. The worst thing is, of course, how people hate me for just being russian and assuming that i am some anti-lgbt villain or some shit.

I don't want to add to fearmongering and I choose to believe what you believe anon, though historically, well… Poland had allies when WWII started too; and it's not that surprising that western countries ended just thinking that it's just some eastern issue that may not affect them if they turn the blind eye. With Putin threatening nuclear war, wouldn't be surprising it something like that happens again. Hope someone assassinates him.

It’s often overlooked and probably besides the point, but Russia stood higher in deaths when it came to world war two. They didn’t really save Poland and other counties like many believe in fact they made things worse, a different kind of hell. Germans gets blamed for being the worst war criminals but I’d argue too that Russians are the most evil bastards out there.

No. 1067487

I wouldn't worry about Poland too much yet, Polish anons. Your country is big, better armed and a lot more valuable to NATO than say, any of the Baltics, where I live, so trying to pull this shit in your country is probably a little too ambitious for Putin at the moment. But I can see him starting somewhere smaller and attempting something like this in my country, especially in the areas near the border where the population is 90%+ ethnic Russians, and NATO will just fuck off because who really cares about us? But he's probably not gonna steamroll the entire Eastern/Central Europe all at once, so Poland is safe for now. I hope.

I hope that the rumors/tinfoils about Putin's declining health are true and he croaks soon. It's incredible how no one has assassinated him yet, you'd think between all the poisonings and falling out of the windows someone would try and succeed.

Yeah, the Red Army was known for being extremely rapey. All armies are but theirs was notorious for it.

No. 1067489

Yeah, Russia shifted sides last minute so they ended up on a more "positive" side of the history, and surely they exhausted German army who tried to fight them on their soil; but they deadass attacked Poland hand in hand with Nazis, they didn't save shit. And all the "liberation" they've done at the end or after war was not to actually liberate any country but to make them part of USSR, so I'd definitely fight anyone who thinks that Russia was a good guy in WWII

I am not super educated about those terms if someone itt knows more about this you’re welcome to educate me, but: I know russian expansionists have always been super horny for warm water ports and ukraine/krim is an important strategic/economical place for their wet dreams of great russia etc. But this will probably strain the infrastructure of the ukraine even more, and russia’s too because all of this is expensive as fuck and even if russia is a federation now, it always had the problem of being way too large to effectively manage its resources and it will always have this problem so I see the plan of further expanding their territory as the dream of delusional old men who want to get off to their power fantasies one last time. Idk what kind of 5d chess is going on with this it just looks not very smart to me as a layperson. I know ukraine could gain them some potential economic benefits but not in a post-war situation, and at what cost? I Just wish they would leave the civillians out of this, fuck war and all of those warmongering assholes around the globe for carrying out their delusions of grandeur on the back of the people.

Corruption and political instability runs super deep, it's such a massive issue that it's actually difficult to export and import anything because of how Radés port is controlled by corrupted people (made us lost one billion). Ben Ali regimen alongside the economic crisis fucked the country big time, still haven't recovered and probably never will in the near future because of said corruption messing up with our economical rebirth plans. Covid worsen the crisis even more and now the people are developing a "Ben Ali regimen nostalgia" and want to go back to more sinister pro-Islamist times. Some Tunisian women are even wishing for it. I can't even blame them, because longing for times where your country APPEARED to be more stable is normal, most people there think that the Tunisian Revolution lead to nothing.

Putin can invade Ukraine because Biden is so weak and incompetent. Any attempt to rally the US against Russia would fail because America is so divided politically.
Disruption of Russian gas to Europe is going to cause more economic problems as countries recover from covid and will probably make civil unrest more likely. There are already protests over vaccine mandates and lock downs. Because coal and nuclear bad because global warming, a lot of power plants in Europe are gas fired. No gas, no electric.

Putin may not even care about Ukraine but the consequences are in his favour. The US is shown to be too weak to act when China is watching, and the resulting political instability in Europe could lead to the replacement of the current elite.

Idk about the detailed economic situation of every other european countries so this a vey localized post but germany alone produces way too much energy and sells the overshare to the neighboring countries afaik. (friend who works in the sector explained it to me like that if I recall it right). So while I don’t know much about the energy production in other eu states but even if some industries and sectors are dependent on gas, I assume the economic impact of this shouldn’t be too devastating and the coof shit is laughable compared to other political unrests imo (the restrictions are continually decreasing now anyway). But idk. coal is going strong here but I assume the plans to ditch it because of the bad environmental effect are now getting strained even more which sucks. I don’t really believe it, but I hope this KGB fossil and friends do not care about the expansion of russia that much because that would make the whole situation way less dangerous on a large scale. Since Ukraine is not a member in the NATO the allied states are hesitant in joining in on military action as long as no NATO state is being under direct attack and he knows this. I dont think biden as a person is really relevant here because he’s being carried by other instances. but god Imagine this would be happening with trump still there, the fearmongering would be insane.

I keep seeing russians whine about this online too, that everyone is being russophobic and making them out to be the bad guy when they didn't choose their government and have no way of fighting against it. I'm russian myself and I think most people understand that already. I haven't seen many statements complaining about regular citizens, I have no idea where they are getting that at all, especially with all the videos of people holding up signs against war and getting jumped by police immediately afterwards. It's just so tonedeaf to cry about being perceived as "evil" when there are ukrainians in actual danger right now

No. 1067889

I agree that putin is crazy as fuck and he and his henchmen belong on the guillotine, but if you take a look at the map you see that the contamination would predominately affect the bordering countries who used to belong to russia back then that russian expansionists are thirsting for, as well as the capital cities of russia who would probably be even worse off than the western core parts of europe. This would be the dumbest move ever and would probably let him lose shitloads of support from his own population and maybe even his own military since it would put their own homes in danger.

I'm on the fence about decisions like picrel.
It's not the people's fault, as if being born in a dystopian dictatorship poorfag country wasn't hell enough, now they're actively being punished for something they didn't chose.
However, don't flee your country in time of war. What a borderline disgusting cowardly move, you stay, even if you can't fix it. People who fleed during WW1 and 2 were resented (rightly)

No. 1067901

I totally get that, it's easy to judge but I myself would be terrified of protesting if I lived in Russia, knowing that I could get beaten, jailed or disappeared, I would just not have the courage to step up. And because everyone is afraid of the same thing happening to them, no large protests can be held, no one wants to jeopardize themselves or their family. I think for Putin's regime to topple from the inside he'd have to piss off the police and the military.

I mean I understand them, I would flee too if war broke out in my country but only if my family came with me

No. 1067905

Yeah, I've seen a lot of people talk about how any attempt to speak out against the government is shut down and the people trying to will get lawsuits for random shit that land them in jail. Right now there are people getting detained in Moscow for simply saying "No to the war". I just don't get how it all got to this point in the first place, how does someone just decide to do all this?

What other option is there? Stay and pray you don't get randomly killed for something you have no control over? I hope all people in currently affected areas can find safe places to go to. They all deserve to live

If you want to die, be my guest.
