    Maybe you need to go to cities that actually have some culture. Have you ever left the US?

    Yes I have and a city is a city nothing interests me in any city except maybe for some of the architecture especially cathedrals on Renaissance era buildings.
    When I travel and yes I have traveled outside the US I travel to see natural sights I can't see in this country not to be jammed cheek to jowl with tourists

    I just realized that I'm trying to reason with an asshole. Your evaluation is only worth what comes out your rear end. Instead of commenting on what the thread is actually about, you spout bullshit about someone you don't even know. YOU are a typical internet troll. Go crawl back under the rock you came out from.

    I know you put up a troll post, and I know you are now feeling pretty uncomfortable about it.

    American Experience!


    How do Americans, so 'schooled' in modernism feel about seeing the changed 'faces' of Europe and its glimpses into dynamic culture?

    The stereotype is that Americans are satisfied with Texan and Floridian sunshine...

    Is that a fair assessment? Maybe Americans crave more 'rugged' individualism when compared to people from other nations (e.g., Thailand, France, Mexico, Austria, etc.), which is why we love films like National Lampoon's European Vacation.

    I've lived in America for many years now, so I wonder if I've become 'biased' about Americanized 'imagination.'

    "Isn't this Euro-train fabulous, son? This is the 'modern' face of Europe!"

    "I wonder if Europeans are big big fans of 'classic' comic book characters like Thor and Wonder Woman..."

    I never looked upon soccer as a women's sport. Have always viewed it as something for kids to start out with until they have the coordination to learn real athletic skills.
