    It's more frantic
    Fewer open spaces
    Nature has been destroyed

    • Funny thing is, according to various surveys, Americans in general are too nice and open. It’s supposedly the easiest tell.

        Huh. I must say, I have not read that. My impression of the international impression of Americans is:
        • Loud
        • Generous
        • Ignorant
        • Goofy
        • Violent

                    When I travel or cruise I speak fluent Canadian, eh.

                    (Take the midwest, speed it up about 10%, a little more staccato, trade a few words, and you're on "shed-yule" to speak Canadian. I only have to listen to CJOB 680 out of Winnepeg for a day or so and I've got it down, ... eh.)

                      Before any party even opens their mouth to say a word, I always thought the fastest tell was the shorts, sneakers, and US sports team apparel.

                      But my standard resting scowl and tendency to look like I know where I'm going does probably explain why I've had random people come up to me in Europe and start speaking in the local language.

                        So. Austrian. Those people reminded me of New Yorkers: eyes straight ahead, harried scowl, fuck you saunter. It felt like home.

                        The gods gave me a resting face of pure neutrality which has come in handy so many times in life. All I really have to say is nothing and people go through tremendous gyrations to try to figure out if I am judging them, scoping them out, or even noticing them. One friend's cop dad told me if I just sat in the room during testimony people would probably get nervous and confess.

                        I think that was a compliment?

                        Anyway, IRL I just shut up.

                            Shorts, sneakers, and jeans were everywhere during my last couple times there. Even in areas the locals took us to. Levi's was huge in Paris.

                            That said, different shorts, different sneakers, and type of jeans made it a little more obvious. I stuck with my nondescript shirts, dark jeans, and very plan dark shoes. Worked very well in Germany. And I have the same scowl when I'm thinking. My wife calls it resting b--tch thinking face.

                                It always blows me away when we go to Europe how beautifully the girls in their 20s dress. Simple, inexpensive stuff, but with some thought. It's basically the US in the 50s and 60s.

                                Teens and guys are slobs same as us, though.
