Admit it, we're all fucking gross. BUT at least we're funny right? Right?
to fight in the army?
That can't be right. Why are we a race of ugly mugs?
Look at somewhere like Sweden or Brazil. We're totally rough.
Australia is the best if neighbours is anything to go by.
but then i'm half Turkish as well
YOU DO THE MATH
no tans. And the shit traditional food. Lardy skin.
Man, stupid British genes.
about smezzer'a arse.
Anyone with me?
i've been bent over for fifteen minutes, what now?
But we are also funnier.
In my humble opinion...
Of all the members of the British isles the Scottish are *easily* the least funny.
And piss off if you dare mention billy connolly. I mean come on? I automatically put the words stotic and scottish together when either are mentioned. That doesnt bode for a funny nation no?
The Irish are probably the most funny where as the welsh are more..fun. The English probably have the most well documented wit but I'm not sure how much that proves.
i get by .
this is a widely held belief of Brits living in the city, who are surrounded on all sides by fucking gorgeous Australians, Scandinavians, Americans etc. I think it's largely because every other nationality in the world tans better than we do. But Ozzies and Yanks look kind of bland after a while.
Seeing the quintessential English Rose look- narrow chin, white skin, pointed nose and prominent teeth- really warms your heart after a sustained absence, it really does.
This is rubbish. People who generalise like this probably are informed by t.v rather than real life interaction than other nationalities.
"People who generalise like this probably are informed by t.v rather than real life interaction than other nationalities"
attacking generalisation with generalisation
they see brazilian models and think all Brazilian women look like that :(
Two out of three ain't bad... Gorgeous Americans? Hmmm...
It's true that whenever I return to Australia after a period of absence, I note the glowy 'health' factor and general rosie-ness in people's cheeks... However, I do think this has a lot to do with the fact I return during their summertime. Australians are a pretty good looking lot, actually... (I wish to clarify at this point that my bloodlines come from Austria, not Oz...)
Scandanavians are gorgeous too.
But Americans? Hmm... I suppose they do have that apple pie image.
Well, global warming will find more sun here. There's hope for you lot ;-)
Quite alot of brits in there.
(apart from her recent anorexia hoo haa)... but Cheryl Fucking Tweedy before her?
The world HAS gone mad.
Did you know they are cutting down on the tits and arse thing now. It's being revamped because apparently the Lad's mag market is dying. Seems you lot aren't buying anymore. It's going to have a comic on the cover soon.
good to see you're fighting generalisation at every turn.
That's why it became popular in the first place, back when we were 1st years: the fact that it was more like a man's version of Bella than soft porn...
like Nicola Roberts being at #47. You look at it and just think why?
I am one sexy man.
A superhero to boot.
in Iceland why we are the so god damn good looking. It´s like this:
when the vikings came from Norway, they took the most beautiful people for slaves from Ireland and England on the way over to Iceland ,
so all the ugly people were left behind
this is very logical, I mean who wants to rape ugly people...???
because it's true.
For Switzerland then.
France to the left, Germany above, Austria to the right and Italy below, and it's probably not bad in the actual country itself.
EVERYTHING'S BETTER ON THE CONTINENT!
(apart from the music)
placces like america don`t have ugly celebs they have plastic surgary you emove the uglyness
You'd think a small gene pool would make everyone get deformed and weird looking like in rural Wales, but it just means that they keep producing gorgeously perfect people...
So proven that British people are just dog ugly.
here then average in the world, in villages of 100-200 people you can find some weird stuff going on...
attractiveness decreases and sarcasm increases.
so only half-ugly.
The other half is chinese though, who aren't reknown as being the best looking race.. :
same here innit!
It gives you chopstick skillz, and dark hair.
Perhaps I am a sexual racist.
it´s definitely something sexy about their pale, skinny bodies.....could Icelandic men just be too healthy for me for my taste???
I have always noticed English men particularly have this special tone of white I think it´s just totally sexy..
my nipples can cut through glass now..
all power to their elbow
This thread is weirdly, firstly because there is no 'pure pedigree' English person anymore. Are we talking about the Kate Winslets of England! Most Londoners I know are a pick a mix of everything. I'd like to meet a fellow Swedish/Welsh person like myself.
London is more multicultural than, say, uhm, Ledbury or something.
that I know a welsh/swedish person, when i looked at your profile. Turns out your the welsh/swedish person I know
only in terms of nationality, certainly not in terms of ethnicity
the most physically beautifully people I've ever met have been mixed race
yes, definitely. There's something quite attractive when you can't quite work out someone's heritage. (Though being mixed myself, I may be biased/an exception to the rule.)
1. Male; Mother Japanese, Father Brazilian (SA Indian+Spanish)
2. Female; Father Norwegian, Mother Sri Lankan
3. Female; Mother Senegalese, Father Persian Jordanian
the other day, and a German and a Dane told me that it is widely accepted that most English people are ugly :) Apparently I'm not bad looking for an English bird. Phew.
I think English people on the whole don't make as much of an effort to look good - nice clothes, tans etc but we do like to travel a lot. Basically it's all the fat uglies in Ibeefa and the nasty hen and stag parties in Madrid and Prague that are giving us a bad name.
also, i propose that english men are quite good looking. on the whole.
however, beauty is relative. mostly.
where there were lots of darkhaired handsome ladies and men. But, they really were extremely friendly! Until we caught another wedding group in our hotel singing anti-English songs and dancing around n stuff..
the nice looking ones, ones that look like potatoes, and ones that look like rats.
i apologise for my fellow countrymens behaviour :S
they were very friendly to us face to face!
normally look the most attrative. Always looking tanned and healthy. BASTARDS.
getting some late night ice cream, and we were in a crowded piazza.
I then heard this horrible screetchy sound- and saw three permatanned harpies having a public row. As one of them stormed past it became sadly, yet not suprisingly apparent that they were British.. I think it's these types who give us a bad name. It really was ridiculous, they really need to learn that Eastenders isn't a model for behaviour..
have the highest teenage pregnancy rates, the highest child drug/booze addiction rates, we're all ugly, our food is fucking rank, the weather is shit and our sports are shit and we're shit.
I'm leaving and moving to Milan.
(Though that's maybe it needs to be, as we're cowering inside our tiny houses, afraid of getting swept away in floods, knifed to pieces, burgled senseless or bum-raped.)
but we RAWK :)
We've got a good reputation for music.
But I want the looks, food, weather and work hours!
I'm moving to Copenhagen in 8 weeks so I can't really disagree...
(Which are two of my fave things..)
the massive rate of taxation then ;)
all you have to deal with there is the highest obesity rate in europe, the highest murder rate in europe, even shitter weather, even shitter food (unless you REALLY love Irn Bri and deep fried mars bars), even shitter sports and ginger hair added onto the ugliness. YAY.
would possibly be the worst thing ever.
cheese flavoured juice? sugar flavoured cheese? :(
British food really is rubbish though.
Compare it to anything else, Chinese, Indian, Italian, German, French.
MOAN MOAN MOAN
for atp an old man approached me.
'Going to the festival are ye?'
'yep, it should be fun'
'aye mineheads lovely. where you from? are you swedish?'
'no. I'm from london'
'oh. Well you look like a foreigner'.
Judging by this conversation this aint no bad thing...
Polish/Swedish..any kind of Scandinavian/ Eastern European Country. I think it's due to my anemia.
"Ur not from around here R ya?"
"Wear R ya from?"
Also got stopped at the train station by some police-man, asked where I was from. I didn't think I looked suspicious.
