Grouch,

I don't have to look up anything on culture. It's an accumulation of all traits combined that form the opinions of virtually all members of a society. For example, the importance of knowing a foreign language. With the possible exception of France, we are just about the worst in studying another language. We have the idea (somewhat arrogant)that everyone all over the world must learn English. Bad cultural trait on our part but a trait none-the-less. Now, in the Netherlands the exact opposite is true. It's such a small country landwise, that they do most of their business in other countries. My supervisor, Cees (Case) van Tilburg spoke fluently 5 languages. His boss spoke 7. The least fluent in other languages in that entire office spoke only 3. You see, for starters, they start learning English in the second grade and take it as a class for the next ten years ... until they graduate. That is a wonderful cultural trait of the Netherlands.

I could give hundreds of other examples of cultural traits that set many countries apart as peoples, such as a general feeling a countries people have on the value of the arts. We're not very good at that either but France is excellent. You can get into any of our art museums fairly easy any time of the day or week. But everyday, at any time of day, you will stand in a long line to get into the Musee D'Orsay in Paris, across the Seine River from the Louvre.

Now for your small-minded thinker challenge. You just mentioned drinking as a culture of the German people. You never stated anything about the master brewers of Germany, the quality of the ingredients in brewing formulas, nor the art of brewing beer to perfection. Those are the cultural traits recognized by the German people themselves as well as all over the world. As for the drinking, Germany ranks #8 in the world in the consumption of beer. Believe it or not Palau in Southest Asia ranks number 1. And, the United States is not even in the top 10. The Czech Republic drinks more beer per capita than Germany. Now are those traits of certain groups of those citizens or the culture of the country as a whole?

Now which of us do you think might be small-minded. Stupid question! I already know it's me in your mind. You don't take being proven wrong too well. I'm sure you'll explain to me why I'm wrong and then end it with a few insults. You certainy won't learn anything that is not your idea.
