2006-06-30 [shotokan_gal]: If there's any here?
2006-07-02 [Charybdis]: This is a bit late, but - what I had in mind for this contest was more the highlighting of positive aspects of your nationality... though I realize I didn't really specify besides the pride thing :/ In that sense, I can't really disagree, but I would prefer if you found something more celebratory than derogatory :)
2006-07-02 [sequeena_rae]: I'd say the pride thing was enough to determine what this contest was for =/
2006-07-02 [Fizban]: I don't know any americans...wh
2006-07-02 [Paz]: I'll have to agree with that as well >.> I have two friends who like it but no one else I really know... but I'll think of something :3
2006-07-03 [iippo]: You're all victims of political correctness then. :P As we know, it is politically correct to hate America. :( But since it is not a special country in any way, it is no different from any other country: it has good sides and bad sides. Everyone is just blind at America's good sides, because that would be politically incorrect. :O
2006-07-03 [Fizban]: It's soo annoying...old
2006-07-03 [iippo]: There's an idea for a photo :P
2006-07-03 [Fizban]: how would you represent that though?
2006-07-03 [iippo]: Extremes... a black marble at the edge of the image and a white marble at the other edge? :P
2006-07-03 [Fizban]: :O!! gasp! they might fall! lol
2006-07-03 [iippo]: XD And the grey marble at the middle, wins! </Mortal Kombat man sound voice>
2006-07-03 [sequeena_rae]: *doesn't get it* o.o XD
2006-07-03 [Paz]: lol, live in america for awhile (or just a read a book about it) and you'll get it.... guaranteed >.>
2006-07-04 [iippo]: Americans also have the chance of taking a photo of absolutely anything at all and saying it's about New York :P
2006-07-04 [Paz]: True :P Isn't it amazing? The only thing with america is that we really don't have much culture that is overly separate from the rest of the world. In fact we get most of out things from other countries -_-'
2006-07-05 [Fizban]: Well to me thats fine, cause its not like we have some rich heritage---ooh thats right, we do have a rich cultural backround for this land mass...we just killed and displaced the natives. So, thats really not what the country is about.
2006-07-05 [Fizban]: But getting everything from everyone else, is fine cause thats what were made of, easterners and orientals...Eu
2006-07-05 [sequeena_rae]: Weeelll....Be proud that you live in such a multi cultural country XP
2006-07-05 [Fizban]: What do you want me to go to NYC and get a bunch of poeple to hold hands of different racial orientation or something? lol, then take the picture?
