    Well most here know Im not. But I live in Austria and Im Austrian citizen, and if i came to USA it would be from Austria. I also have a austrian accent (I believe) so if I introduced myself as from Austria would you just accept it or would inquire what my background is because I dont look Austrian to you? Do you have a stereotypical image of Austrians in your mind? And if so what does it look like?

    Two videos in one I speak too.

    You don't really look Austrian, but most Americans don't have a solid idea of what Austrians are, so they'd probably believe you.

    A lot of Americans even think Austria = Australia.

    I think all Austrians look like downhill skiers.

    Just make sure when you get off the plane at the USA, you bring some hot Slovenian women with you... Then I'll vouch for you as Austrian, Moldovan, Belarusian, Latvian,Swedish... whatever. Bring beer too.

    You are Serbian. Why are you ashamed to be Serbian? What is the problem?

    You look like a Chinese to me with one and a half feet in the grave already. Being young I often think how 80 years in age and more think because they are near death now it must be a strange situation to be in knowing you are near dead.
