The World According to Nick
My take on Software, Technology, Politics, and anything else I feel like talking about.
Tuesday, April 04, 2006

"There are only two things I can't stand in this world." 

"People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch." Speaking of which, Samantha Burns points out that in South Korea, Canadians have been banned from a group for cultural understanding:

An organization that promotes cultural understanding and brings together people from different nations is open for anyone in Seoul to join. Anyone that is, except Canadians.

In a classified ad in KScene, a free biweekly magazine, World Class describes itself as a group that "brings together all nationalities to discuss world issues and break down cultural barriers and prejudices."

Breaking down the prejudices, however, doesn't extend to all countries. "No Canadians please," the ad continues.

When contacted by a Korea Herald reporter by e-mail, the organizer of the group, Bernard Carleton, elaborated further, "The thing is, CANADIANS ARE SCUM! They are self-loving, welfare supporting, over taxing, work ethic hating scum!!! They are not welcome in our group."

But at least they're not being prejudiced, and are understanding of other cultures.
