  • People and populations are stupid. Individuals are smart.
    Some people give Australians a bad rep thanks to exporting some awefully vapid tv ("home and away" for instance) and the heavy rural accents (heavy accents tending to develope in areas of reduced outside influence, thus areas prone to a lack of knowledge and customs which appear backwards to outsiders). But it certainly seems less deserved than the American stereotype of self agrandising idiocy, or the British stereotype of jingoism (though I think most cases of that are just people playing up to it for laughs).
    Every Aussie I've spoken too on a one to one basis has been a moderatly intelligent individual, or at least self aware enough to want to learn. I interact with a lot of tourists working at a museum. We get a lot of aussies in and they genuinely want to learn... where a lot of other tourists (particularly Americans and Londoners) will come in so convinced that they understand everything there is to know about history that they will try and correct people with YEARS of academic study of the specific topic under their belt.

  • I think that being smart has nothing to do with nationality.

  • Europe invited millions of poor / illiterate arab immigrants in.

    Australia decided "yeah, we don't want millions of poor people from war torn nations flooding us" so now they literally tow illegal immigrant boats back out to see.

    In my book the Aussies are damn geniuses.

  • Of course not. It's the land down-under. "Under" in everything. From brains, to wealth, to morality and basic human decency. It's a colony of former convicts which displaced the native population. Every Australian is a blood-thirsty savage.

    • As opposed to Americans, who apparently can't handle the extra syllable in aluminium.

    • Show All
    • @EasyForYouToSay

    • @sean1234 For many years, it was spelled both ways by different people. But the standardised 'correct' version, is aluminium.

  • Depends. If u r from Sydney (like me) then u r smart, but if u r from Melbourne then u couldnt tell an orange from an apple. Lol jk. U can really stereotype a whole nation. Some people are smart and some are not so much.
