National Traits - True or False? Hi guys. This isn't a country bashing thread, but rather a chance to explore national stereotypes with our collective tongues firmly in cheek. How it works is thus: List two national stereotypes associated with the country you hail from, one which must be true (in your eyes) and one that's definitely not. To get the ball rolling: Country: Scotland True: Scots are typically seen as binge drinking nutters (see Groundskeeper Willie!) The nutter thing is off the mark, but we do drink far too much :embarassed: False: Scots are rumoured to be skinflints. Total nonsense - official stats show that we give more to charity than our neighbours to the South and tip better, too :thumbsup: Anyone else?
