    What you mean those ugly elf shoes? I hate you Italians for bringing those abominable pointy shoes to my country. Take them back please.

    When i am in class... and people do not know that france is next to germany, and they do not know what language is spoken in france... this is stupidity.
    Well, I don't know which state Wyoming borders on. Am I stupid? I guess so. (Information like this is hardly relevant to us in Europe, by the same token why should European trivia be relevant in the US?)

    Ok, then don't wear them. I really dont think you know anything about fasion if you think you have to pay 400 dollars for jeans and now that leather shoes are ugly...

    Well... do you study which state wyoming borders on? I doubt it... We actually spend years studying europe and have numerous tests on which country is where and what are the capitals. So even if it isnt relevant, americans still should know.

    and to answer your question, yes you are very stupid.

    Fashion? Who cares? Big smegging deal.

    Why should Americans know that? They don't study Europe in as much detail as we do. Just like we don't study the geography of the US in detail (unlike them). European geography is of little importance on the other side of the Atlantic . Why should it be that we study our European countries and capitals but don't study much about the US, but the Americans should do both? Tell me, why do you know so little about the Russian culture? Are you uneducated?

    Для чего нужно знать, где именно расположена каждая страна на свете? Для этого придумали карту! Я знаю, где находятся все страны Европы и Южной Америки, да.. потому они что меня интересуют. А насчёт Африки, мне известны расположения только ЮАР, Египта и... Марокко.

    Но все же, она действительно глупая!

    I think it was you who said that I was wrong for trying to buy jeans cheap and said i would never find good jeans at a flea market. Maybe you should stop trying to one-up me and stick with your facts...

    I wouldnt know, because i have only been here a couple of years. But yeah, I did know that but not from school. And i dont know what country you are from, but in italy we studied the US AND Europe in detail, so maybe your school just sucked?

    Why should I know so much about russian culture? I know what i know and when i dont know something, i ask questions...

    Oh dear, guys, not again......!

    What's with all the feistiness on these boards these days?


    VM - stop winding the feller up - we only have one Italian!

    Giovanni - if this board were a big pond with a lot of frogs in it, VM would be the one to throw in a rock. Don't take it so personally - this is only the internet...
    And BTW - VM has his own...ehm... inimitable style - but if there's one thing he's not, it's stupid. So by all means take up the gauntlet and enter the duel (always a good laugh for bystanders ), but make sure your rapier is razor sharp....





    As for the pointy shoes - I find them an abomination Not only do the do great damage to people's feet (and therefore posture, knees, hips and back), but they make the feet look three sizes bigger. They're high fashion here, and most women walk around looking like ducks with pointy feet. I think. Sorry.....
    Ой, голова у меня кружится |-P ...... and my brain hurts too....

    I second it! Pointy shoes look ugly. I never could understand why people buy and wear that clown sh1t.

    Yerh, pointy shoes are teh ghey.

    In fact, I've come to dislike most leather shoes, mostly because most of them look retarded. And the fact that you can't really go anywhere in the UK without having them.

    Its pretty stupid when, you can't get into a club in England because I'm wearing a pair of 130 dollar American Adidas, yet for 30 bucks you go buy some stupid looked 'leather' schoolboy shoes and you can get into any club you want.

    Like seriously? Who is going to start talking at someone, and then notice their shoes and be like |OMG ur you're not dressed like you're going to church? Get back you beast!"

    I guess the only good thing pointy shoes could be good for is kicking an @ss or two, but you get the same (or better effect) with steel toe boots.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    aha... i think he is stupid in the fact that his posts are only focused on trying to be a badass and trying to make me look dumb, when he contradicts himself. First he tells me i am stupid for buying cheap practical jeans because i am italian and should know fashion, and the next minute he says fashion doesnt mean anything.

    And if he were the one to throw in the rock, i would be the one to throw it back. Yeah, the ONLY Italian doesnt get pushed around.

    How do they do great damage to feet?!?! Mine actually help.. I hate tennis shoes because they offer too much support, which ultimately makes your feet weaker. My shoes have no support, just leather on top, and I think a thing of rubber on the bottom. They do not have these huge... insoles(?) like tennis shoes! my shoes are very close to being barefoot, and everyone knows walking barefoot is healthier for you!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barefoot#Health_issues

    I always walked barefoot actually, in Italy all the time. It is recomended to drive barefoot in italy! but while i am in the united states, when i get pulled over and the police see i do not have shoes on, they either say it is not allowed or once, they wrote a ticket for "unsafe driving".... or something like that.

    America, land of the free, and the police who are eager to write tickets for anything!

    (I think its only because I am Italian too.... because they ALSO gave me a ticket for having an italian flag on my car. They said it was a distraction. But i am sure if i had an american flag, they would compliment me! )

    VM isn't stupid, and he doesn't try to be a badass. He just is.

    And if he were the one to throw in the rock, i would be the one to throw it back. Yeah, the ONLY Italian doesnt get pushed around. Wink
    Didn't you know? Русские не сдаются! They've never lost a war (at least in modern history) or didn't get back at their enemy in one way or another. So if you want to throw rocks, make sure you have a mountain behind you so you don't run out.

    It's not so much your feet (I'm not foot doctor) but your back and hips.
    If you walk on hard flat leather your whole life, by the time you're 30 you'll be hunched over like an old man, falling down stairs breaking hips, drinking and smoking uncontrollably, stealing money from friends to support your gambling habbit and... Ok well probably just the bad back thing but still, look what can happen.

    Yeah! Like the great advanced republics of The Peoples Democratic Republic of the Congo, Togo, Cameroon, Swaziland, Pakistan, Yemen, Narnia, and Middle earth... Duh!
