What's your opinion about Lithuanians?
Stereotypes and honest opinions welcome.
Let me start you off:
>bad at english
>good at basketball
I have failed you! Still, i think the same about the two country.
cause we suck at everything I guess.. There aren't many of us left, and the numbers are decreasing. Economy is shit. Low salaries. People are unhappy in general..
We are famous in basketball world though.
Also we used to be #1 country by number of suicides committed for many years. (We lost that spot recently)
Oh man. Tell you what, i DO know hows that. I'm Hunfag.
well that sucks
I've many hungarian people btw, and I have to say they are chill as fuck.
Modest, polite, well read - huge contrast in comparison to your neighbours (Bulgaria and Romania)
have another river by the capital
I knew one guy from Lithuania, he fight with me in Ukraine 4 monts ago, nice guy funny because he was a cook, some fucking ukrainian from Lviv ripped his head off. Anyway, after this knowledge I know that Juka soup is delicious
That's new to me. We aren't afraid of polish, but we do have a deep hate for them. Mostly because some regions in Lithuania are overtaken by them.
Lithuania is very nationalistic (85% lithuanians), this leads to closed-mindeness, and oh boy do we hate foreighners.
Some of lithuanians are stuck in soviet mindset, and it feels like we are behind 25 years.. However we are catching up.. slowly
My personal opinion: polaks are okay. I've met cool polaks, and I've met retards. Not that different from any other country.
Here in Canada we think of Lithuanians as Eastern Europeans. We think of Eastern Europeans as poor tier slavs who live in corrupt shit tier countries. But, that could just be how the media portrays those places.
that's very unsettling
our language is among oldest in europe. It's might seem weird, but it's actually very intuitive (if you grow up with it).
The thing about English language that seems weird to me is some of letters can be pronounces n two different ways (C as K for example)
Or the usage of letters you don't pronounce (why the fuck there has to be two "t" in "letter"?), also there's no such thing as "spelling" out something (name, street name etc.), we write shit exactly how we pronounce it.
English is way weirder to any native lithuanian.
No real opinion, but I'm betting...
2. Xenophobic, especially the women
3. Women are easy to get into porn
4. Low work ethic
5. General malaise
6. Not fond of government
8. Old culture that's gone decadent in the 20th and 21st centuries - many frustrated or ashamed, none doing shit about it
Am I close?
wtf you are talking about faggot?
i live in vilnius, salary 10k+ eu per month, newest bmw 4th class, ridiculous appartment and fair enough girlfriend.
go be a nigger somewhere you crying and doing nothing peace of shit.
1. Poor - Not poor, but below average
2. Xenophobic - True
3. Women are easy to get into porn - No idea
4. Low work ethic - Not true at all. We are the working donkeys
5. General malaise - True
6. Not fond of government - Who is?
7. Corrupt - Not at excessive levels
8. Old culture that's gone decadent in the 20th and 21st centuries - many frustrated or ashamed, none doing shit about it - Mostly true
well played sir
what do you mean?
For many people could be amazing that he fought alongside russia, but he said that he had different views from his government and probably had the right to. Assessing him as a man, he was a nice guy he said that he live in town named Olite or something like that, don't remember :/
forgot to tell you - im 26.
I dont like brag around, but that what just gets me - people, who are not just people, who are crying all the time, killing themselves, fucking waste of skin. I run a business and I see them all the time in the job interviews, and I cant stand their cries
>noone gives money
>noone gives jobs
>noone gives gf
>cant buy gf because no money
>no money because no job
>no fb because no job
>politics not fair
>I HAVE RIGHTS
ohhh yes, these faggots know their rights when they got stopped drunk by police, knows their rights when travelling, when ordering food, when doing any shit
>I HAVE RIGHTS and i have no fucking idea what i am talking
emigrates to uk, steals stuff from british people, gets in the newspapers, kek for everyone in lithuania who has their shit together.
just one thing to know about Lithuania
>Rzeczpospolita nevar forget
wtf are you talking about? Eastern EU starts that grown up life asap, unlike you privileged West EU and fat consumer America mofos... Also - yes, lots of criminals and shitty economy due to convention from PSRS to EU (which all three countries did in record time with excellent results) ... High and admirable educational standards, next to no porn made, no one's famous because we don't really understand the concept of getting famous and rich for nothing - this is why we only have a high rate of high calibre athletes who's names are out there (we feel like they actually earned it) ... You fucking cunts just need niggers to point at and we fit the profile perfectly because someone with little finance has to do it...
PL here. Polish–Lithuanian–Ruthenian Commonwealth was a great time.
That hate come from XIX and XX c. when nations rised. You guys found that you have to fight or YOu will disapear. Most important problem was Russia, but ofc Polish in Wilno/Vilnius. We suppost to fight together, like while January Uprising (1863), but something gone wrong... Sad.
Today, there is no problem. I found LT fine. Expect nationalists and truck drivers.
if Putin is coming, Putin is going to kill your ass, we are just going to be eating popcorn and watching all those over civilized privileged pussies getting slaughtered like ants in a bunch...
was the last pagan country in Europe
kickass princes and dukes (Mindaugas and shit)
very conservative language which is interesting in its own right and also interesting for comparative linguistics
you seem to think a stereotype means that its not true
I don't really know much about Lithuania but
>Don't like Russians
>Probably lots of forest
>Don't like communist
>Used to be pagan until like, the 18th century
>Former Soviet Block country
>Lots of poor people and heroin
>Large Jewish community
>too many Russians
>the few non-slav-mix people are very good looking
>Latvia is better
>Estonia is much better
>Finland is billions of times better
>Estonia and Finland should be part of Nordic Union
>Lithuania can go suck a dick for helping Russia in the past
>No one knows any difference between Latvia and Lithuania
You don't get it... Our daddies give us advice, minimum money for survival and school of life, if we really lucky we get a car, unlike (we all know who) - "My Super Sweet 16" titty sucking pussies
>unnecessarily prejudiced and envious of Poles
Pretty much all. Sorry guys, you're picking on the people who could easily be your very best allies. I know, I know - Żeligowski & shit, but we can't do anything about it in 2015, and, to be fair, even though we ourselves consider that an invasion (sic!), you can't be serious about saying Poland occupied a land that was basically inhabited by Poles anyway. My grandmother was born in Vilnius and lived there until 1945, but she likes the fact that the city is now Lithuanian again... which is why she got insulted whenever she went there in the 1990s as a tourist and tried to speak your language. Bra-vo!
Just drop that Grybauskaite (Grzybowska!) witch of yours and stop that nationalist bullshit of yours. And yes, so should the Lithuanian Poles if that's the case.
>free, genuine snacks in pubs = awesome
Great northern war n shit. Poland-Lithuania was against the glorious empire. If they wouldn't have been we could have fucked Russia at once and not fail miserably and Russia would thus be a near land locked country with some black sea ports no one cares about.
I didn't mean that because it was a stereotype it wasn't true. I just thought it was funny because the main "thing" about this guy was that he was good at basketball. And I've never heard that stereotype, ever.
lol @ eurotrash for thinking that the things portrayed in American media are at all typical of normal American life
>was never given shit
>no car, no money, no anything
>am already successful manager with a beautiful wife and son
THAT'S what makes America > your shit tier country, faggot. Get mad more.
Yeah, a good portion of those came to Norway to pursue a career in crime.
I do know one lithuanian guy though. Used to work with him, always hooked me up with cheap cigarettes and booze, good guy.
You are generally fat, materialistic idiots with heads up your ass (living in a socialistic bubble), speaking one language and feeling special... I've been there... Ok, not really - <3 US, the art, some of the ideology of democracy, the variety... You're just pissing me off with you false sense of superiority motherfucker. What makes America are the slaves you used to gain economic over hand a while ago my friend and the abuse of the banking system later (all built on someone else's land)...
My image? This
playing on repeat, people driving tractors, strange unpronounceable cheeses, old women with that cloth thing around their heads, old soviet era cars drawn by donkeys, fat hairy men with moustaches stealing everyone's shit all the time, an irrational fear of Swedes, and a peculiar obsession with not being Slavs.
You think that maybe 3 mln people living in the same place for a very long time makes them actually a little special, different and interesting... Also - perhaps very important as they adopt and become another flag to be another part of your half fucked new world?
See, this is what I mean - "there is no money to be had here, not interested..." :D fuck you.
Well educated, intelligent bright people, from a sparsely populated region of eastern europe. British medias been trying to portray you as another lot of poles ( who basically came over here for work for fuck all because the exchange rate takes the piss ).
Yeah, I know, I was working in central London offices for three years, now I can't score any job here, going home soon... I get it. Immigration control and all that, Ukip, yip yip Huraa, you guys really should leave EU... From what I've seen Farage say in the EU parliament, you don't even belong there any more...
What I mean is, if you guys are in the modd of leaving EU, leave NATO too and US only causes problems for it as well... I mean, it's been "We are the decisive element of both unions", right? Well, it hasn't been going exactly excellent for anyone... You know what I mean? What does that say about that element?
Beer is cheap, I am from Latvia - there's a historic centre of the city called "The old Riga" - much like Prague, really cool place, nice hotels, there's a wibe to the place, Google it, you'll like it. :) Girls are accessible but not sluts, they're just curious about foreigners :) - the point is, nice place to tour... do it! Most folks speak English... Russians are not that bad and the bad ones are not central based...
fuckings this. me being as a lithuanian, i think that poles are closest allies to us. unfortunately most of lithuanians are dumb and do not understand that theres no need to hate poland, we should be friends, instead of enemies. disgusting world, zero tolerance.
in london yes, in murica - i dont think so
as for the first part of the sentence, I don't think them living in one place makes them particularly interesting or special. second part, I don't understand what you mean, and lastly I never said anything about money.
It means what I've said, 3 mln ppl is such a small number in grand scheme of things. Average country would swallow you all and never even noticed.
and how many 3m cities are there in lithuania? none, your capital (500,000 ppl) is small city in comparison to cities in other countries. For example here 7 cities have around 500k-2mln ppl.
All in all why are you guys so butthurt? isn't it true that you can't do shit? I really don't mean to offend you. I don't like big cities btw and probably I'd gladly move to lithuania and live happily everafter but what does it change?
Russians are fucking stupid. 70% of them believe their propaganda, that the west wants to invade Russia, which is ridiculous. Putin might convince them that invading in advance is a correct move.
Define can't do shit? We have some of the smallest % wise debt in EU, for the number of citizens, we have solid names in the world, sportsmen, surgeons (a lot of them working abroad where they people human being salaries), you fucking name it! We don't have Kanye West's, Beyonce's, Lady Gaga's and shit no, we don't feel the need... We joined comparatively recently maybe we develop some... As for "living in one place makes them particularly interesting or special" and you not getting the second part of my sentence - see, you're trying to steer it towards "I don't get what you're trying to say" but really you don't get the concept itself... Everything is "can I use this?" "How much does this cost?" "Number of people living there", "Their hight" :D ... That's your view of the world and good, the world needs all kinds of people <--- see? I get it... And since u like numbers so much, do % of the number of citizens successful, odds against which we struggle and still manage to strive, like I said, we joined not that long ago (how fast did we adopt and how well? How good is my English right now? I also speak Russian and Latvian, in fact I am considered to be a retarded, other speak French, German and so on)
Russians are dangerous... So is US, just not to EU, so we don't view it that way... Yes, they are doing some Communist shit right now and yes I hope to god they stop and if they do invade, I was born in a free country and I have an EU passport... Meaning I will probly get killed bcs US pissed them off... So I am like ur ally who's gonna get shot... ;D Russians are not bright in masses but generally they are not un-advanced, I wouldn't bet on what US news feed u either, they carry quite a punch... They have missions in space too, you know?
Of course we do. But not to that extent. Also there's internet to provide many points of view. In Russia quite a lot of people still don't use it. And those that do have it still largely prefer to believe what their gov is saying.
Girlfriend is Lithuanian. Have been to Vilnius, , Panevezys, Siauliai, Kaunas and some smaller villages.
People are highly xenophobic, specially in the lower classes.
Even in the bigger cities, except for the capital, there are aggressive, uneducated people roaming around. Hard to feel safe there in general, as a foreigner.
Other than that, people are very kind, the women are truly beautiful, prices are great and they have amazing landmarks and overall nature.
There r shitton of russians in Latvia it pisses me the fuck out. In capital Riga 2/3 are Russians.
Wages are low as fuck. Minimum wage is 350eur/mo, if im not wrong. Avg worker at mcshit earns like 1.5-2eur/hr which is shit. Being jealous as fuck when fags in other threads say they earn 10$-8eur/h for flippin burgers. Latvia is ppiece of shut tbh, after high school i will study in uk/denmark and then move to US/UK.
Russuans are degenerates. Baltic countries hate russians because of their attitude and no respect to them. Before russians invaded us all three countries were succesful and had great industry, but then russians came in and fucked everything up.
There are russians who live here <20yrs and they still dont know the language, they arent even trying to learn it. They just speak russian everywhere. They will talk to you in russian no matter if u know the language or not.
We hate russians because they fucked up our progressive countries.
pretty dumb and paranoid.
nobody likes them. they are like russia, no friends whatsoever
awful drivers, like uganda-tier awful
other than that, i doubt anyone cares to find out more
mommy, daddy and shool propoganda boy... I've met some bad Russians too but you don't get a lot of things yet man, DO go to US, UK and Denmark, live there for a while and then speak again... ALSO, look at the map, Russians are supposed to be there, no they are not 2/3 you little shit, go back to school... About 33%... The ones in central Riga are alright and there are some bad apples living in Maskavas forštate and alike... Also, my mom was pregnant with me when we did the Batijas ceļš thing you little shit and my grandparents have explained to me all about the war in detail unlike yours apparently... Grow a little and your opinion will change...
Mandatory service has been an on and off thing for them for like hundred years... The news just stir random shit up because US wants to go for it and fuck who has to die in the middle of it...
Go suck russian dicks you faggot if u like them so much. And yes there are more than fucking 50% of russians in Riga. Implying i was talking about the whole country you dipshit.
>an irrational fear of Swedes
Sweden, you're hard to love with your faggotry, but by god you're hard to hate too
Calling you to save us? Man, they will be there because of you and coming for you and I will not need to call shit, you will get ordered to be there... OR not, I don't give a fuck, they don't go through civilians if US is not there, no one gets hurt... it has happened before u know? Last time they were there for Germans and we were wearing their uniforms... So prep ur ass to fight Russians, they have a little more in them than ISIS son... god luck
There were a ton at my school. SW suburb of chicago. They were a bunch of eurotrash cock suckers and they all went to zerogravity (under 21 dance club)
I'm pretty sure they were all infested with various STDs and STIs
Some of them tried to play sports, and they would have been great because they're all giants, but they eventually all dropped out because they just wanted to juice up and do curls in the school gym.
basically white version of niggers that like techno
Take those false accusations and put it in your rectum. My shit-barometer always rockets off the scale when I hear those baseless lies by fascist russian propaganda machines (as well as brainwashed idiots who rely in the information of russian today). 90% of information about Estonia what I hear from RT and I can cross-check, is bullshit. And don't even start with ".. but CNN 9/11 zionist obama" - I'm talking about RT and I rather believe anyone else that this.
Oh and all of their women are raging fucking sluts. Like no exaggeration, no contest the biggest sluts I've ever met. Again this is just my own experience. Maybe they aren't huge pieces of shit elsewhere
I think they have much better internet than me. Feels bad man.
I'm not even lithuanian, it's just your comment is so retarded i couldn't... you said 3m is like one city... when there are less than 100 3m+ cities worldwide most of them being in Asia... how many in US? 2!... only 2 cities larger than 3m... which proves you are total fag
I've spent my teenage years having my face kicked in by them and returning the favour... Then again I had friends, my dad's married to a Russian girl, have 1/8th of Rus in me too... I grew up in all Latvian family though...
this guys a motherfuckin idiot. hes from fuckin hinsdale or some other yuppie ass town. in the suburbs.
the lithuanian girls ive met in chicago were just like any other bitches around here.
Yea close, I'm not a yuppie. And It's the fucking truth, ask anyone from that area and they'll confirm what I said. It's not my fault that when you all act a certain way you get stereotyped...
I wouldn't stick my dick in that. I like my dick.
Y'all got dirty women, it's fine, black women are filthy and they make great music. Lugens are pretty good dancers honestly
what are you talkinb about?Tell me what the fuck has reformierakond done wrong?The unemployment is small,the wages are getting bigger,our life quality is alot better when comparing to other baltic countries.
I tell you what though, no matter where's your from ... I don't even give a fuck - your men are pussies, how's that? Approach me man, any time any where... I will stick my whole fist up your ass and pull it out with your tongue in my palm.... c'mon
I have been in Vilnius and I thought it was quite nice. Very good restaurants and beer. Girls were so-so, not as hot as Estonians or Polish. I am actually maybe going to move my buisness to Vilnius because the salaries are a fraction of compared to what they are here, renting is virtually free and shipping from Lithuania to the rest of Europe is much much cheaper than from Finland
I know, right?! I have a webshop and have around 100 packet shipments per month, all in Finland (Started last November). I pay inside Finland 4,50€ per packet which is bad. What's even worst is that I want to start shipping around Europe and one shipment to fucking France or Germany costs like 20 fucking euros! Like what the hell?!?!
>rest of the baltic states
wow you are really annoying piece of shit you know that? you can cherry pick all you want, you've just said yourself there are hundred cities more populated than country.
I don't know what to say besides that you overvalue your country, sure everyone in there can speak 6 languages I get it. Live in you fantasy world. . And you don't know me I'm not materialistic, but you are very insisting on money. I think it's you who projecting. Your "odds" are no different than all the countries east of germany.
so I annoy the shit out of your ignorance? good then... I said less than 100... and you failed to convey how that even is relevant to anything... doesn't it annoy you that you say retarded shit like that?
Polfag here, hard to say anything about Lithuania, Latvia or Estonia, you hate Russians, you hate Poland, probably you hate Belarus too, a lot of nationalists and sad people. Well, you are like Poland, people here hate everything, Jews, nationalists, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Germany, USA, Israel, niggers, sandniggers, rich people, poor people, cyclists, homo, bi, pedophiles, gypsies and overall living in Poland.
Glorious Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth is the only thing I can think about.
And it's probably 99,999% white.
>mfw Lithuania is probably heaven on earth
Never been there though, maybe I'm mistaken (I hope I'm not)
Its worse here than in Lithuania
Our country shares border with Russia,Russians are everywhere and nowhere,Demanding much more than they deserve.
Mayor of Riga is russian dick, wanted to have russian language as must have language in Latvia
>Implying I'm Swedish and not Finnish
Now listen to some patriotic music
I grew up Lutheran and always thought all Lutherans came from Lithuania I was the stupidest kid in Sunday school this is actually the sign of the church I went to as a kid
Also about stereotypes...Estonians have some stereotypes, for example Latvians having 6 toes on each foot, but haven't heard about any Lithuanian ones.
I imagine the Vinny Jones movie might give a weird image about Lithuania
When I was in school, there was a kid who moved here from Lithuania. Fucking ugly kid, arrogant too. He hated the Polish just because of the Polish-Lithuanian War and that's it.
I had more reason to hate Poles, I'm fucking English, but dammit he was such a dickhead.
No idea about Lithuania though. Probably works for cheap and has a corrupt post-commie government.
