The Big Generalization Thread

This thread is dedicated to expressing generalizations about a particular group of people.

I'll start.

I notice that white people seem to be able to deal with cold weather better than those with darker skin. I see them wearing shorts in February like it's hot outside and I wonder to myself what they are thinking. They open windows in the middle of the winter claiming to be hot and kick up the AC or fans up to high gear to cool off in the middle of winter.

mexicans are dirty

....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

the further away you get from northeast/mid-atlantic america, the crazier the people get

Great idea Knizzle,

umm.............................yeah so don't all tennis fans just suck?
I mean come on, of all the sports fans, the tennis fans have to be the biggest losers of them all. They don't even follow a real sport. Fans of women's tennis suck even more than male tennis fans...at least male tennis fans actually watch tennis--the sport (though how pushing a ball back and forth repetetively in a boring fashion can be considered a sport is beyond me), but women's tennis fans just watch for the TnA...I mean come on! if you're that horny watch some pron! don't pretend like you're into sports or women's equality or some BS like that cuz you're clearly a loser and doing it to get your rocks off

The white people you saw were probably Canadian.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

I remember one episode that really amazed me. I was flying from South Africa to Moscow at Christmas. And when we were leaving Johannesburg, it was around 100F over there. And when we landed in Moscow , it was -10F. And naturally, they did not park the jet to the sleeve, so we had to get down from the jet by stairs and wait for a bus. And one of South Africans was wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Him standing there waiting for the bus was one of the freakiest pictures I've seen in my life.

I love wearing shorts and a t-shirt in extremely cold weather....it's just fun....but of course, I was born in Michigan and now I live in the south, so....that might have something to do with it.


Here's one:
Everyone in the south is an ignorant, gay-bashing, hick. Unfortunately for me this one is true..... ;(

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

That Swiss are greedy and love their money.

That the Jewish people were the chosen people of this planet (Something which I am inclined to believe in)

That the Swiss all love Chocolate

That Swiss all have Cuckoo Clocks

That Swiss live all in Triangle houses.
