Does anyone else find nation pride strange?

Why are people "proud" to be (insert country here)?

You normally are proud of something you acheived.

I find it strange that people are "proud" of popping out of a vagina in a certain geographical location on the globe that they had no say in where it occured.

National pride is a myth. As George Carlin said, you wouldn't be proud to be 5'8 or have a pre dispotion to colon cancer. It's a genetic accident.

I disagree, try telling these pacific islanders its a myth.
You can be proud to be a part of a culture, proud of what your ancestors achieved, proud of what your fellow citizens have achieved and proud to continue in the same vane. I believe those who are not proud of their nationality have never contributed anything towards what makes it well known.

Well done guys, time to stop drinking and go to bed.
Unless you are characterising Kangaroos fans as car thiefs?

Good call, OMT.
I noticed that myself. Racism is alive and well. Hypocritical and two-faced.
You cant say a word about the gays, but step right up and slur any race you choose. Pathetic really . . . but far from surprising.
Being drunk, or even half pizzed is no excuse. All that does is remove the filters and expose the truth.
Weren't you the one making homophobic comments in the SSM thread?
Don't know about homophobic . . . but yes, I made comments about the gays in that thread. My opinion of them was pretty clear. I'm still allowed an opinion, yes ?
On the other hand, I was blasted by all and sundry for speaking of the gays. The same all and sundry that demonised me for daring to criticise the gays are mostly the same all and sundry that thinks it's fine to have a little racist "joke".
So in the left way of thinking . . . you are NOT allowed to say anything against the gays, but it's perfectly fine to generalise that all Lebanese people are car thieves. :brick:
And one of you wonderfully fair minded people even asked if I know the meaning of hypocrisy !!!!!!!
Byron Bay fan . . . you wrung your hands about the gays having to throw themselves off the cliffs in angst, and you were the 3rd in line to add his 2 bobs worth to this racist offering. Really ?
Go you good things, I can understand you getting upset about a few posts as some people are exactly opposite to what their brothers are infamous for. Those who genuinely discriminate are not only doing someone else a disservice but also themselves as they could be neglecting interacting with a genuinely good person and conversely they could have their guard down for an ethnic they favour and thus be easily cheated by those they favour.

I did have a two bob one way and a quid the other when responding about the Australian Aborigines having their land stolen. I expected a bigger reaction to that than about the Harleys and Benz.

Particular ethnics have their peculiar modes in specialities of breaking the law. Covering 60 years of Australian emigration I could characterise about six specialities of specific ethnic specialties. Some were killing with knives, some were false injury insurance claims, some were terrible treatment of female spouse and of their workers, some of were importing drugs etc..

I could go more into why certain groups attained their notorious status such as their being no government in their own country to provide intelligence on whom may be criminals, so there could be a predominance of crims in certain groups.

If a person happens to be a cleanskin and proud I can understand them becoming upset, especially as they cop it often. Before posting I knew I could have written in opposite mode of many honest proud professionals I know of in Leb population but I did have two bob each way as I personally know people who were involved in car scamming decades ago and making false insurance claims.

I was proud of you for calling the others out but I thought it was an insult limiting Lebs to Holdens, I have never noticed them interested in cheap Holdens or Fords but I have been out of Sydney for a few decades now.

Can you imagine how many Commodores would be out in the Allianz carpark? :lol:
Yeah but stolen one's count as double..
When I got back after the game, my wheels were gone.
I don't know how we missed some Azzurai fans looking suspiciously like they had just finished making cement shoes.

Didn't know that Alex Twal actually had the best tackle completion rate in the NRL in 2017

Even for 9 games that is a pretty amazing stat
