Did we expect another reaction from a Frenchman?


Its weird how French have this reputation I think it comes from the pre–Revolutionary French upper class but can not really be applied to the French as a whole.



Although its fun discrimination and the most successful discriminatory terms seem to take one element of truth and then apply it to a whole nationality/race of people.

I know the surrender aspect of WW2 comes into it but I don't think France had much choice and it would have cost them more life to not surrender , Its also well documented how well the French held back the Germans with resistance groups which is a far harder and riskier form of fighting than standard troop combat / full front engagements ( from the perspective of an individual solder anyway).

Also the French have many totally mental people that needlessly risk there lives lol I mean they originated allot of parkur , and crazy types of skying.

Still I agree its amusing to poke fun at people even if its unfounded

BTW , Brits have bad teeth , amercans are all fat , germans are all rocket scientists , asains are all amazing at math and paino playing, australians eat cangaroo all day and chase crocodiles , russians all drink vodcah 24/7.

Touché

edit: although I still think the remote-up-the-butt freakout was sort of real. I think it went viral so they started making fake ones.

So sick of "reaction" videos where the person knows full well there is a camera pointed at their face. Downvote.

Dude, have you seen your avatar?

There's no getting around the fact that, in a situation where it comes down to standing up for what you believe in to the death or giving up, giving up is always going to be seen as the "coward's way out", and that's why it's stuck to them.

It doesn't matter if it's the best option, or the only option, or anything else. It's jingoism, linked to war, of course things like that are seen through the overly masculine eyes of "i'd rather die than submit."

This is why france has a bad rep, because of the world war. And i notice that a lot of people who i first heard say that are in the age range of being impressionable during or just after the war. But more recently i believe the country most associated with surrender is the italians but don't ask me why, i don't subscribe to it.

But if it wasn't that, it'd be something else.

I came back to hate on this some more. Such bullshit. If you can't see that the guy is acting for the cameras maybe you're a little too mediated.


Based on what? Just because he has a camera in his face? Have you ever been in a bobsled? I'm curious why you think he's faking.

Besides, everyone knows Frenchies make TERRIBLE actors...

Based on this looking like terrible acting, and the fact that nobody does anything these days without taping themselves.
