Say what?

If the world is a village, who then, are the cool kids on the block?

Well according to an unofficial (but revealing) survey done by social networking site, Americans took the number one spot.  Surprised? Me too.  But apparently the survey results are based on the opinions of "30,000 people across 15 countries".  Still more is that is based in London and owned by a Russian entrepreneur --and the site itself is most active in Latin America, Spain, Italy and France. (I never actually heard of until now.)

So top 10 coolest nationalities?

1. Americans
2. Brazilians
3. Spanish
4. Italians
5. French
6. British
7. Dutch
8. Mexicans
9. Argentinians
10. Russians

...and the most uncool nations (according to the survey)...

1. Belgians
2. Poles
3. Turks
4. Canadians
5. Germans :( (How can this be?!) 

So what do you think?  Are the rankings spot on or do you disagree?


  1. Well, all I have to say is that I am comprised of the top 6 nationalities on the 'coolest' list so they must be on to something! ;P

  2. What is with these surveys bashing Germans (#1 least funny country, too). I would never put Russians on the cool list, no offense if you have Russian readers. And most Italians are creepy, not cool. Their country is just cool. I definitely get why America is #1 only because American music, brands and entertainment is so prolific all over the world.

  3. I definitely wouldn't have thought this would be the order of top ranking spots!
