well yeah, that would be the point of prejudice or archetypes.
these are examples of how other perceive "the other". it's overgeneralising and probably wrong tout court, but it reflects the image others have of your country.

Especially in Europe this may be strong, just think of the "do it like a European" cards...

cfr. Orientalism by Said, who claims that the image we build of others says a lot more about us, than about that other...

After playing warrock so long, when I hear "german" or "Dutch", I just imagine a 12 year old white kid raging at me from behind a computer screen, the french image looks right though.

Indeed. If you've ever been on server Netherlands then you know that 90% of those kids there are immature and always flame and complain.

Haha lol. Great topic! :)
Though these are some really stereotype pictures.

And, for those who listen to the news (Dutch and/or Americans): what do you think about what O'Reilly said on his program?

I think it's some serious bull*peep*. He says that he's been in Amsterdam, but I doubt that's true. He's REALLY wrong.

Well...Amsterdam is a noobcity. About 30 murders each year, taxi drivers asking to high prices and killing their passengers. Lots of soccer hooligans etc. Luckily I live in Groningen.
