It's interesting to me to hear these stories about obnoxious Americans abroad because I can't relate to them. I'm not doubting that they're true or not (I'm sure these things do happen), but I can think of VERY few people I've known who hit that level of obnoxiousness. I guess these guys get a huge ego by getting so much attention from the ladies and they lose their better sense. Added to the fact that they're homesick and therefore patriotic, and out comes this weird, twisted nationalism. The funny thing is I bet foreigners think America is actually like that. These yahoos running around in trucks, raping women and screaming about -- oh. Well, that's Louisiana actually. But, the rest of the country is normal, I swear it.
