The reason why this is not in political section is because this way I will probably get a bigger feedback (what I want). Plus this thread does not have to be ultra serious thread.
Anyway on this forum Eastern Europeans are clearly a minority. So I am wondering what people around the world think about this part of the world ?
I ask since it looks to me that we are likely to be represented in global media as lunatics, people who don't care that much about human rights , people who support totalitarism etc. (but to be honest this does not mean I am saying this is totally incorrect) Also I have seen a number of times a comment "Ah, those crazy Russians" on the youtube.
On the other hand posters from this part of the world or posters who have roots from this part of the world on average seem a bit more eccentric than average. (but I could be wrong about this)
So what do you associate/think about this part of the world ? (be honest)
Stories and anecdotes are welcome.
