Guys, i am proud to be Slav. Eastern Europe Rules! Yes Slavs may speak broken english and are too alcoholic, but we have most beautiful chicks. Never seen Duke dates some Russian or Slavic woman though, considering any Duke Nukem game i know, such as Manhattan Proejct and DNF.Duke is also very blonde himself. Could he be Slav too? ;)

Japan says otherwise.

Personally I find Slav women to be among the most ugly on this planet, plus all the ones I've met usually have either a really crappy personality or none at all, they also smell funny - I know it sounds horrible, but they do, every one of them I've met has had this weird smell like moldy brambleberries about them for some reason, maybe it's just the ones we get around here.

The problem with what comes out of British women's mouths is less the smell and more the sound. You can temporarily fix this by shoving your cock in there, but the long term consequences aren't worth it, not only will she decide you raped her as soon as your wallet is empty, but now everyone on your cell block is gonna hate you for giving them all an array of previously undiscovered diseases.

Well everyone has his own tastes,, but what you explained so far, you must know not all Slavic women are same. Also it deepnds that those "ugly" oens you meet are from which country. There is at least 10 Slavic nations around the world and 2 or 3 Semi-Slavic (as they are mixed with other races) Example, i am not even for Russia (which is biggest Slavic country) but i am from Serbia, the small Slavic country on southern part of Eastern Europe, on Balkan peninsula. And most women and chicks i saw here in my country are gorgeous, smell good, and are very pedant. Yes they are average looking women too, but many of them are beautiful. Speaking of other Slavic countries, Russian and Czech women are ones of most beautiful women in the world, and least in my opinion. While, at least in my country, for example Germanic race women aren't considered too beautiful. But there is exceptions, as some other Germanic countries, excluding Germany, really do have tall blonde beautfiul woman such as Dutch women, Scandivian women (mostly Swedish). And speaking of Romanians, they are mixture fo Roman, Dacian and Slavic race and their women are also pretty nice in my opinion. BTW i hate how many people cofnuse Romanians with actual gypsyes, just because the part "Roma" in the name. Note i am not trying to be racist and talk bad about gypsyes, i am just saying that i hate when this confusion happens. While, if i got correct, you live in UK, i can't comment on British woman because i have never seen them (except on TV) but from what i saw, i think Irish woman are more pretty. This is all my opnion of course, and i am not trying to be racist, whatsoever. I am jsut saying my taste and opinion.

This is probably Russian, BelaRussian or Ukrainian traditional outfit. PLus it reminds somehow of those old Slavic Pagan tradition outfits as well. I also forgot to mention that Southern Slavs (Serbs, Croats, Bulgarians) have a bit less Blonde women due these lands always been occupied by other non-Slavic conquerers for history time. But Sotuh Salavic women still have pretty much Slavic conture lines on their beautiful faces :)

The ugliest women are Koreans who almost always perform plastic surgery, there is no contest. Mothers there tend to gift free surgery coupons to their daughters on their 18th birthday.
Spoiler

Though they have a good competition in America if we speak of ugly as fuck feminists/leftist who can be fixed only with a help of Korean surgeons (there are the biggest professionals for obvious reason, if you want to fix yourself go to Korea and nowhere else).

But if seriously, there is no specific nation which is the most beautiful, pretty much almost all of the nations are beautiful with some exceptions.

If anything fuck gypsies, many Eastern European countries are full of those cockroaches, for example in Bulgaria gypsies control their mafia and have big influence over the government which is corrupt as fuck. Bulgarian economy is fucked and people tried to riot many times, people there are working for small wage. Most of the gypsies are feeding from other countries by exploiting unemployment benefits.

Now, I have a better question, what can be considered "traditional outfit" by American standards? I guess 50s fashion?

I don't get the fascination with Asian women. Doesn't do anything for me.

Myself, I got me a beautiful redhead of Scottish/German descent. Though, since we've moved here to the prairies she's lost that natural red somehow strangely enough. Someone said it's whatever's in the water here. I don't know how true that is.

short answer: Ugg boots and Yoga pants

long answer: there isn't one.
The United States has a multitude of sub-cultures which are usually regional. There are similarities and differences, same as the different European examples you provided.

@Sledgehammer Well i also had several bad experince with gypsy people myself, but what i am trying to say is that i don't want to violate any forum rules, and this is why i said that "i don't want to sound racist." Yes you areright, maybe i shoulnd't use that American phrases but didn't just wanted to got warned or banned. Anyway speaking Slavic women, yes i may confused Polish and Russian outfits, since i live in Serbia i mostly famialr with Serbian traditional outfit, but for what i saw earlier i know Russian outfit was similar in many ways as Serbian, i didnt knew or saw anything about Polish outfit though. And i jsut want to note that, despite living of Serbia, i am not just a Serb, but i also have some Russian and Rusyn herttige in my background. So i consider myself often times just as "Slav" or "pure Slavic" or stuff like that, since i am not only a Serb. I never spoken Russian though, nobody from my Russian herttige spoke Ever Russian to me, since we all living in Serbia, we always speak Serbian. ALso it's really interesting how Slavic languages are similar, but most notably i like how Serbian and Russian aore both similar in some way but also very different. I would also like to learn real fluent Russian one day, to know language of other herttiges and family lines. Now, even me as being Slav, there is actually one thing i dislike bit at Slavic women. Not all of them, but many Slavic women, at least Serbian ones i know, are means, talks bad, swears alot, and in my opinon women shall act more nicely and polite than men. This is just my opinion. Yes i don't say there is no American mean women, of course there is, but thing is that average number of American and generally Western women are "more Polite" then our Slavic women. Again this is all my point of view and thing i know from, but i may be wrong of course. Also constantly hate how some Albaian and Turkish racists always find argument to insult me with insuts like "Ur mom other Natasha popular whore in Turkey" or some stupid shit like that, seriously, like all Slavic women are named Natasha. And like all salvic woemn work as prostiture. Some racists and nationaliss really need to grow up.

But if seriously nothing wrong with it. In fact this is for the best, going after your women is the way to go. Plus all the women around the world are beautiful in their own way and all we have our own tastes. That said, Japanese women are the best in Asia. :whistling:

Anyway, Yugoslavia wars produced pretty good music. Too bad you have to dig to find this music.

Oj Alija Aljo my favorite song ever hahahahaha They also made similar song called Dzamije Lete with similar Bosnian Muslim subject. On another hand they even made some meme called Remove Kebab and they even invented some shitty lyrics that even doesn't make sense. But that is meme anyway. While Alija Aljo and Dzamije Lete are one of my favorite songs ever. I also like Russian Hardbass songs. And funny song parody with Vladimir Putin called "put it put out" hahahahahaha At least i can agree Slavs have one of best humors.

Who sign the Oj Alija Aljo song and is there any info about Yugoslavian wars synth-pop folk music? I lack Serbian language skills and can't find anything unfortunately, but I bet I could use a help from Google translator if I knew where to search for this stuff on Serbian web resources. I wish I could find this great music in lossless format actually.

Also didn't know that Dzamije Lete is the original song, always thought that video below was the original. Still a catchy song.


As for Russian, they did pretty good shit too:

These two are wrong. Otherwise you're saying it like it's a bad thing. :P

As for the word "racist", Americans (leftists) themselves raped this word so bad it means pretty much anything now. The worst thing though is that this is not just one word. What really bothers me is that leftists raped pretty good word which is "progress".

"Gypsy" is still a correct term. They were called "Gypsies" long before they ever adopted the euphonious term "Romani" or "Roma people". Not that it matters though because most gypsies live in areas where English isn't the predominant language, so "Gypsy" is hardly ever used to refer to them. For example, in Romanian the word for "Gypsy" is "țigan" (the 'ț' is pronounced 'ts'). Using "Roma" or "Romani" to describe them is a complete joke when it's one letter away from the word used for actual Romanians, which is "Roman". (That is actually where the term "Roma people" comes from: it's an attempt to attribute a historical connection to Romania in which their population is highly clustered, a historical connection that they simply do not have)

Speaking of Romania, Gypsy music artists are always on Romanian MTV just like how black music artists are very popular here in America (I know MTV is sort of dead in America, but it's stilled played EVERYWHERE in Romania). For some reason the "thug life" is highly marketable. Very strange and funny.

Yeah I probably talked for too long about Gypsies. Can you tell I'm Romanian?

I would say you are if you blamed Hungary for gypsies existing in Romania, most of the guys I knew used this as an argument against Hungarians nationalists which was pretty amusing (they have territorial conflicts). I know for certain that they would find it hilarious or insulting if you called gypsies Roma/Romani and well Hungarians tend to call Romanians gypsies to insult them.

LOL Hungarian nationalists are a funny bunch. Some of them still live in areas in Romania that they think "belong to Hungary". They live in small communities and refuse to learn Romanian. Can't complain though because at least Hungarian parents work and educate their kids. Some Hungarians and Romanians use strong words against each other but none of them have an actual dog in the fight. Our countries were split up by WWII powers, we didn't do anything. We aren't about to kill each other either; this isn't Yugoslavia.

Yeah, I know. I mean why else would I say "portrayed". In fact I've seen many American people who found it ironic that foreign country portrays them like that. Anime, video games, manga, you name it. In Japanese media this is how Americans are portrayed: patriotic, blond and strong. Here is Tina Armstrong (get it?) from DOA and I totally love this stereotypical view on Americans. This is how I viewed USA myself when I was young and didn't know English.

I guess, but if you have something to offer to the country you're going to (and if you take some efforts to learn at least the language) you won't find any kind of problems. This is how it's done in Japan, if you're a good citizen, can benefit society and do know the language you'll be welcomed with opened arms.

Yeah, I know the story except that they refuse to learn Romanian and I agree it's not as bad as it is in some cases where people would get violent. There are ultra-nationalists but they're very small minority and I've never actually met them, only heard about their existence. Still the problem with Yugoslavia was always religion so it's not surprising that things are different in their case, although Tito managed to keep the shit together. He did a big mistake by not getting potential heir who would keep the country together after his death.

You just reminded me of the old days when I was spending a lot of time on YouTube. It was fun to have Romanian, Hungarian, Slavic and even Albanian friends. I wonder how they're doing. Also my ex-girlfriend has Romanian relatives, one of them is a war veteran, a very great man.

@SledgeHammer Ok then, from now on i will try to be aware this isn't a leftist place XD Now speaking of those songs, i don't how to help exactly since i also knew this songs only from YouTube, i don't know if they are available at all in lossless format. Yes i also thought Kebab Remove is original base for Dzamije Lete, but i was wrong. Also in Serbia we actually hate Tito since he's responsile for making a Vojvodina and Kosovo autonomous province, which Kosovo Albanian seperatist used the status to make indeependent Kosovo with their terrorist orgnaziatino called KLA - Kosovo Liberation Army, or just UCK in Albanian.

@Radar in Serbia we also call Gypsyes with word "Cigan" (Serbian "C" is pronounded as "Tz" just like Romanian T with that thing down) Yes i know Romania and Hungary have problem around Transylvania, and myself, in my opinion, is on Romanian side here. I love Romania and cosnider them partly Slavic, even fi they are Dacians in base, but they mixed with us Slavs in history. There is around 9000 Slavic words in Romanian even if's a Romance lnaguage, Romanian is one of the language i would like to learn one day, special unique language, with both Romance and Slavic influences. Romania never betrayed or attacked Serbia as well. We love Romania. I also hate how most Western people confuse Romania with gypsyes, i really hate that, it doesn't make sense at all. They are cigani not Roma. While Romanians are Romanians or Romani, In Serbian we call "Romanians" just "Rumuni" And speaking of MTV, it is heavilty played here in Serbia, i also ahte bunch of Albanian nationalist whores such as Rita Ora and Bebe Rexha being seen everywhere on those MTV Chanells. Fuck how most of Mafias in the world are either run by Albanian Mafia either by gypsy Mafia. For exmaple Switzerland is full of Albanian Mafia and Italy too. I mean Albanians are everywhere. They are known to have like 12 kids in their families. I won't judge the Good ALbanians of course, as all countires have idiots and good people, but i msoly talking about Albanian Mafia and Albanian nationalist scum around the world.

Also it's bit weird for me too see both Japan and USA in NATO, but in same time that much hatred. WHy the heck Japan joined NATO anyway? Japan should never forgot Hiroshima. This is my opnion of of course.

Most of this is correct, but you forget one thing, our (Serbian) women are more honest, and far beautiful. I like that are chicks are tall, the average is like 168 cm (around 5'5). At least that was my experience, and also what the westerners tell me. I mean Western women may seem polite, but they do swear like the rest of us, and will not hesitate to screw you over. Also, I Slav women in general seem to reject the whole notion of feminism, which is a huge plus. The ones that heavily criticize the western women or more precise their stupid ideas, were women at least in my experience.

I think Japan has like some sort of "special relationship" with NATO, not that they are a member. If I remember correctly, they hated the communist more, than the west. I mean just look at their position, after WW2. Soviet's to the north, China and Korea who will soon have a civil war to the west. At least we got the consoles so not all is lost.

Funny you mention this, because I always thought they would somehow wanted to be independent from Yugoslavia, one way or the other. Further research into Kosovo's history, will show you that they always wanted Kosovo, it just that the autonomous status served as a catalyst. I'm not saying you are wrong, I'm just saying that they been pushing at it for a long time, since when we were a Kingdom. Also, Albania during most of the 20th century was a hellhole, especially after WW2, when they started persecuting their own people, like any other communist country. They seeked refuge here, and after a couple of decades, want an independence. I'm mean, give me a break, you already have Albania, how many countries do you need? :D

Still the problem with Yugoslavia was always religion


Yeah it kinda shows that multiculturalism doesn't work.

Anime, video games, manga, you name it. In Japanese media this is how Americans are portrayed: patriotic, blond and strong.


Yeah, I always liked how Japan portrayed USA better than the USA, even if they use stereotypes. I mean what's the problem, patriotic, strong and blond with big boobs. It's like they show the ideal American people, I always kinda found that interesting, considering that the USA gets a lot of criticism from the rest of the world.

This is how I viewed USA myself when I was young and didn't know English.


Same thing here. :D

That stereotypical American look is more Texan than overall American. But that makes sense since they're the biggest state, have more money, and make the biggest noise.

Also in Serbia we actually hate Tito since he's responsile for making a Vojvodina and Kosovo autonomous province, which Kosovo Albanian seperatist used the status to make indeependent Kosovo with their terrorist orgnaziatino called KLA - Kosovo Liberation Army, or just UCK in Albanian.

Many people hate him and for various things, the most popular one is that he was communist. But it's a fact that he was able to sustain the whole country together until his very death and I've met a lot of Serbians who liked him for this reason exactly.

Either way, religion conflicts are the most dangerous ones. In the end Yugoslavia still consist from Slavic people with religion being the biggest difference and once a very strong country (it was one of the most developed states in Europe) was damaged so bad that not only it was separated, those countries became your typical banana republics, third world countries. Granted NATO and CIA played pretty big role in Yugoslav Wars, though this was neither the first or the last time they did that. Another country I feel bad for is Iran.

Also it's bit weird for me too see both Japan and USA in NATO, but in same time that much hatred. WHy the heck Japan joined NATO anyway? Japan should never forgot Hiroshima. This is my opnion of of course.

Not really, Japan lost the war and as other Axis countries was occupied by America except they decided not to interfere too much, many things were changed, the most known is 9 article in constitution which prohibit Japan to have its own army or starting military conflicts (instead of army Japan has self-defense forces and can only defend itself in case of attacks against the country), this is still pretty perfect excuse to have NATO bases. The most popular believe is that the reason they didn't want to interfere a lot was that Japanese people wouldn't accept it as easily as Germans did, but I think there was more to it. They still did form their own government which is best known as Liberal Party, Japan's current government which is loyal to USA even nowadays.

As for the hate, it all comes from the fact that USA has their NATO bases. The problem about American presence is that American military commit crimes against Japanese, especially rape and murder related ones and not even the government can do anything about it. Most popular topic is of course Okinawa bases when it comes to this situation. NATO bases do absolutely nothing good, heck, even with self-defense forces we can defend ourselves from potential threats. Instead USA is wasting ton of money and we pay with lives of our own people which is worse.

That said, people got over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I don't think even the most ultra-right-wingers still hate USA for it, at least I haven't met anyone myself yet. It is still remembered as tragedy and will always be remembered, but Japan moved on because it's strong enough as a country and don't need to exploit historical events like many other countries do for their mostly material gain. By that I mean that Japan doesn't need reparations or anything like it, to be more specific. History shouldn't be treated as some kind of a prostitute, it exist for humanity to learn from the past.

I want to note however that Japan is still independent country and even the government is loyal to some extend to the people. The problem though is that we still can't (or maybe just the government won't) make our own decisions if those are very major and can affect USA in some significant way. NATO bases is one of such examples and I fear that Abe would accept TPP had America gave it a go. People would be definitely pissed off though and popularity of liberals would go down quickly.
