Stereotypes are fun

A geographical guide to sin, originally printed in Times Online.

Here’s my own picks:

Lust – France
Anger – Arab countries generally
Pride – China
Sloth – Polynesian countries generally (based on my experience living in one!)
Envy – Britain
Gluttony – USA
Greed – Spain, hahaha

  3. Hi Hydralisk. Thank you for posting a link to this fascinating article and sharing your own stereotypes. I love stereotypes. Stereotypes help me know and navigate my world. If it were not for stereotypes I would be lost, I would not function. Thanks again for the wonderful post.
