I've nothing to hide..

If I say my name and where I'm from, I don't mind Who's watching. Surely my boss doesn't know that I Spend sometime on this forum :) .

By the way, I know that some people prefer to hide behind a keybord, so no problem, I'll survive without knowing details :)

Love and peace

I'm also curious but would like to keep it private at the same time :nervous:

I basically go under a variation of my real name here, which is btw. one of the most popular boys' name in Italy :rofl-lol: (as if Andy would make a big difference lol :facepalm:) so that's not the problem.

I'd like to know whether you all look how I imagine you to look :ph34r::popcorn:

Yup, we're pretty much in the centre. Also culture-wise and religion-wise we're not eastern. We were never part of the Eastern Church, either. So calling Poland or Hungary Eastern Europe is pretty funny. But then again, Steven Tyler said we have the best bannanas here, so what do I know :rofl-lol:

As someone else here said, it's a lot about politics more than geography - anything east of Germany and/or anything that was under the Iron Curtain is basically considered Eastern Europe here. Over here, we'd consider Germany, Austria, etc. to be Central Europe.

lol I love when this thread gets intellectual (what the hell happened to the book reading emoticon? :question: )

People are clueless because their education system is terrible, they don't care about the rest of the world and because media perpetrates wrong images of countries/cultures because of some political agenda.

That right there.

I was in school in the 80s and 90s. I absolutely remember teachers who pushed the idea that the USSR and other Communist countries were emotionally cold, angry, warlike places with absolutely nothing to offer. For many years to be a teacher in the USA you had to sign a form that certified you had never been a Communist. I actually was taught differently at home - that the stereotypes were bullshit and that every country had pluses and minuses - but I was also cautioned not to repeat that at school.

These are the sorts of stereotypes about Russia we were taught:

I see you noticed the magic of Slavic languages, ''kurva/kurwa'' means the same in all of them. In my language it would be ''kurva'' or ''курва'' cause we use both latin and cyrilic alphabet. And, yeah, I'm joining European clan over here, I'm from SOUTHEAST of Europe :lol: Serbia here

Though, I'm not blond and don't have blue eyes (unfortunately) , I'm dark haired, dark brown hair and hazelnut eyes.

Speaking of geography, it's intersting that Americans have no clue about European countries, but on the other hand, if someone asked me ''Where's Orlando?'' for example, I'd have no clue either. If you just compare the size of whole Europe and US, it's totally understandable.

I think a lot of it depends on one's own experiences, too. I'm from a big city in the USA. A lot of my friends and classmates were from other places and spoke other languages at home. We absolutely DID know where other countries were - even if we had nasty stereotypes taught to us about them - because we were constantly around people from other countries. By the time I was in middle school I think I knew how to swear in Korean, Italian, Spanish and Hindi, LOL. A lot of slang from different languages were part of normal speech for everyone - like everyone knew what mangia or schmuck meant. We ate a lot of food from other countries. When I was in school we had to know every country in every continent and be able to fill them in on maps - we were tested on that. As well as all the USA states and capitals, and all the Canadian provinces. I remember hating those maps, LOL.

And if you're in a place like Southern California, Chicago or New York there are huge pockets of different ethnic groups and that adds to the diversity everyone experiences. Like in LA a lot of signs are in English and Spanish.

Someone from Middle America where everyone's white and has been there for a long time might not exactly have the same sort of exposure to other cultures and people. America IS a big place, and we don't get the opportunity to travel to other countries as much as one does in Europe.

 

But for learning world history or politics? Um. Yeah. Not so much. Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, the Black Death, the Renaissance, the 1789 French Revolution, Napoleon, WWI and WWII. With lots of "USA is the best place EVER" and "Communism is EEEVIILLLLLL" thrown in, and the end of WWII being "and the evil Commies took over Eastern Europe!" We kind of skipped over some stuff. :D  And meanwhile we had like five damn years of USA history.

Of course! There are well educated Americans like you who know at least to find those countries on map and name their capital city and probably say something more about them, it was just poor generalization. 

And about the second part of your post; it's always that way. We had to learn who was prime minister of our country in 1867 (I pulled that out of my ass), but to say for example how didSouth American countries became independent.....that's gonna be tough. And I'm saying this as someone who was among the best students in my generation (not that I'm bragging, lol) , just imagine what would average Joe say. It just shows how poor educating systems are nowadays. And I blame it on the government :lol:

Totally. For all the supposedly educated people that design school curricula, they end up with a lot of BS in schools, don't they? :D

The highlighted part sounds super weird to me, i know no-one who would say seriously we're the best ever, the only time i hear it it's during sport events :lol: Also i never understood why you recitate the national anthem every morning in school, another thing i find weird, ah, cultural differences! :lol:

On a GNR topic, i'm envying Izzy's coolness, i would have died with Keith at my side

I actually find this pretty funny cause it's as if the people in the communist countries had chosen to live within that system while it wasn't the case in any single one of them. The Russians themselves had abolutely nothing to say, not to mention the other countries that were simply traded to Stalin by the American president himself in the first place. So lots of hipocrisy there but then again, that's politics.

I know which version you would prefer, but I really don't know :lol: I don't think Slash said much about it and like I said, it's been a long time since I read that.

Yeah, I think it is. findagrave.com is a pretty reliable source usually. There's also another picture there saying it's the Tippecanoe county cemetery. Which is where they used to throw Axl into jail all the time if I remember correctly lol. Tippecanoe county jail rings a bell in connection with Axl at least.

And I know he is younger because it says so on the grave. :lol:  L. Stephen Bailey, born Nov 7 1947. No date of death yet because the guy is still alive, just like the girl who stalks Amy on facebook said. Axl's mom was born in March 1945, making her the older one of the two.

The rest of the data at a findagrave.com also tells us that

- Axl's mom was 16 (nearly 17) when she had Axl

- Axl's mom married his biological father shortly before Axl was born (December 1961). Maybe she was forced to marry him so the child wouldn't be born a "bastard".

- Axl's mom married his stepfather in January 1966.

Which means that Axl was 3 years old (nearly 4) when that guy came into his life (though he was probably around before that already).

Also means that Axl's stepfather had only just turned 18 (!) when he married Axl's mom, who was 20 at the time (soon to be 21 in March).

So you've got a young woman on her second marriage already, a most likely difficult/traumatized toddler and an 18 year old step father with religious delusions. Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Wow, I had no idea, I was sure he was older then his mother and he was younger...

Oh yeah, the pledge of allegiance every morning, the national anthem at every sporting event, and then sometimes God Bless America during the 7th inning of baseball games. I don't get all of it either, in all honesty. I used to hate saying the pledge in school.

Where I live is a part of Asia, but well I would love to go Portugal too, I lived in Spain for 3 years, but din't get a chance to visit Portugal.

Then Me, @dgnr, Axl and TB can laugh in Portuguese like kkkkkkkkkkk rsrsrsrsrsrsrs

First: shame on you for spend 3 years in Spain and refuse to cross the border :bitchfight: Really dude, it's not that far, and we are really cool here. There's sun, sea, beautiful people, good food, good wine. Do you have any idea how many times the spaniards tryed to conquer us and our little land and...well...FAILED. You should come see why. It's because we are all better. (I kid, I kid, we love nuestros hermanos). But ok, I forgive you, and I would be happy to have you in Portugal for the Women's thread party. Join us. :ph34r:

Second: Actually that portuguese laugh you're talking about is brazilian portuguese laugh. In european portuguese we laugh like 'ahahah'. Must be because of the accent, I don't know :P But yeah I can fake brazilian accent and sure it would be nice  if me, you, TB and Axl could all laugh together like that. I would enjoy that, let's give it a try :popcorn:

Are you kidding me??? You are more than invited to our little reunion. We need someone who can accept Axl hats and analyses his butt. More: we need someone who can make death eyes to the Andrei guy and entourage, so we can have Axl just for us and our lust ;) Also, you have one of the most beautiful countries in the all world. You gave Tango to the world. And more important you are home of god himself aka Diego Armando Maradona. You're country is amazing :wub:

I think the crew can be pretty friendly, as well as the band members.  You often hear of fans meeting them in the street and having a chat.  There is a video on Youtube of some fans ringing Angus's doorbell,:facepalm: and him standing there talking to them.  Would not like to try that with Axl, he would probably set the wolves on you.:lol:

How cool is that though, that Angus talks to them? 

You're right, Axl would set the wolves on us. There was that one woman who got into his house a couple of times and found him sitting in his kitchen lol. She thought he was communicating with her telepathically :nervous:
