Are Americans The Coolest People In The World?

Well according to a new poll, the answer is “yes!” Reuters reports:

They may be witnessing their global superpower influence decline in the face of challenges from other emerging players on the world stage, but Americans have been voted the world’s “coolest nationality” in an international poll.

Social networking site Badoo.com asked 30,000 people across 15 countries to name the coolest nationality and also found that the Spanish were considered the coolest Europeans, Brazilians the coolest Latin Americans and Belgians the globe’s least cool nationality.

“We hear a lot in the media about anti-Americanism,” says Lloyd Price, Badoo’s Director of Marketing. “But we sometimes forget how many people across the world consider Americans seriously cool.”

Of course, not all Americans are cool far from it. Some like Snoop Dogg, Lady Gaga, Samuel L. Jackson, Johnny Depp and Quentin Tarantino are way cooler than others.

Americans, however, are the dudes who invented cool and who still embody it in many fields from music to movies and TV to technology.

“America,” says Price, “boasts the world’s coolest leader, Obama; the coolest rappers, Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg; and the coolest man in technology, Steve Jobs of Apple, the man who even made geeks cool.”

Brazilians are ranked the second coolest nationality in the Badoo poll and the coolest Latin Americans, ahead of Mexicans and Argentinians. The Spanish, in third place, are the coolest Europeans…

    Unfortunately, Americans are probably the dumbest people in the world. Who gives a shit if you’re cool while you have rising rates of drastic inequality, a more or less completely defunct political system, a cabal of corporate fascists destroying the environment and society to fatten their wallets, the worst rates of obesity in the western world, a vast swath of people that refuse to accept evolution and global warming, and a sizable movement of Xtians that are seeking to implement theocracy, the last two groups having a lot of overlap.
    In the words of so many people the world over, fuck America. Or at least fuck what it is now.

Still have yet to understand smoking and second hand smoke causes cancer, still yet every ugly UK person lights up. I’m bot surprised 40% if UK people have mental illnesses considering your medical technology is in the stone ages. What is the last break through to come out of the UK? Paull Potts.. LMAO

        I am a born and raised sovereign human being that dwells on the north American continent in a region arbitrarily designated The United States of America. I don’t give two shits about your petty and pathetic nationalistic garbage, I care about the world, I care about people and the natural environment. I don’t give a shit about your pointless national pride. 

        The US is a festering sore on this planet, full of imbeciles that waste their time watching dancing with the stars and professional sports, while the imperial legion murders and destroys in the homelands of other people to steal their resources and profit from their suffering, and a ruling capitalist executive class that is slowly strangling away our democratic power and civil rights so that we have no legal recourse to stop them from stealing the product of our labors and the short amount of time we have in order to live our lives.

        Wake up you pathetic genital wart, and understand that nations do not matter, and patriotic pride is an exercise in futility. What matters is justice, freedom, equality and democracy.

          Again, you just refuse to understand the greater good. America doesn’t exploit people’s resources, corporations do (that is an international problem). The US is not a “festering sore”, you are. It’s people like you who fail to realize what America truly is and stands for. We accept refuges from other countries who treat their people like shit. We give FREE education (FASFA) and healthcare (to an acceptable extent). We treat our own like family. Considering the way you talk about this country, you should not be included in that category. You should appreciate the country you live in, you loser. You could’ve been born in Somalia. (In which case the U.S.A. would’ve accepted you as a refuge you ignorant piece of terrorist scum.)

      • Earthling

        Let me guess, your from the USAss. According to this article, 30 000 people across 15 countries were polled. Hmmm, sounds like a completely accurate poll to me, not to mention the question itself is ridiculous. Keep going Oldtown, your posts have sure changed my opinion about America. PS, I’m being sarcastic. I don’t dislike any countries, just aggressive assholes in general.

            Actually, my dollars worth more than yours, my country has more resources than yours,and I don’t smoke. I have been to the USA many times and have American friends. I don’t dislike the USA, see my previous post. If you actually check out who invented what, you will probably be shocked to find out that a lot of the inventors came from other countries. You do know that your country was settled by Europeans, right? Regardless, what have you invented? People have done amazing things in your country, but what have YOU done? Your not America, your just some dude and so am I.

      • Tuna Ghost

        I’m guessing by your multiple spelling and grammatical errors that you’re writing this on an i-Phone or i-Pod touch or something.  Probably while driving.  If so, you’re due for natural selection to take its course any second now, something for which we are all thankful.

    • Mpierc18

      You just described a fractional percentage of Americans. A lot of us are well educated and know exactly what global warming is and don’t discriminate. Evolution exists but doesn’t explain everything science related like our existence (biology major here). It’s people like the TALIBAN that make the lesser educated folks in America so shallow (kind of like you – lesser educated). Those are the people we need to rid the world of.

    …but we are running a bit low on actual cool. We might get that back though…theres something about economic destitution that tends to encourage people to find their authentic voices and stand up. From such a cauldron…a little real cool is sure to be born.

      It’s really not a nationality thing as others have said.  I’ve met some cool Americans and some douches, just the same as any country in the world would have some kind of mix.  You my man can probably guess what I think of you.

      Also, get your facts straight – You talk about the British economy crashing?  Check you own economy out, jesus.  Medical technology in the stone age? Is that why Britain has a higher life expectancy than the States?  Mental illness – The States has the worst figures in the world, with the highest proportion of doped up kids in the world too.

    fairies are awesome, the states are filled with gay people! you guys are so backwards! I live in canada and we have gay marriage, and yet your population is much larger than our’s and you have many more gay people, yet you can’t come to terms with each other. The States are a mess! You are just attacking people so I guess I will attack you! (or not really). I just feel Americans are conditioned into being elitist, self absorbed cretins. The States are no better a country than any other, they just think their number one for whatever reason.. though they have little to no culture.. white people assimilate minorities and marginilize others that refuse to conform to their conventions….. whole lotta boolwacki

     This is some of the dumbest shit I’ve read ANYWHERE. Who’s cool? WTF? It’s funny, cuz as a Yank I’m familiar with a helluva lot of provincial idiots that are oblivious to a whole world that exists beyond these borders. Things always look greener on the other side of the fence. And America’s got THE best frickin’ marketing complex in the world, hence the illusion that Americans are just so damned “cool”. Not to mention this “cool” business is the result of years of culture killing by the aggressive marketing of American junk culture. It’s all about marketing, people, don’t be duped. There is NO fucking “coolest” anything to speak of; let’s not entertain such idiotic notions. Embrace the earth, its cultures, its peoples. EXPAND, strive, reach beyond your limits.

It’s funny, cuz as a Yank I’m familiar with a helluva lot of provincial idiots that are oblivious to a whole world that exists beyond these borders. Things always look greener on the other side of the fence. And America’s got THE best frickin’ marketing complex in the world, hence the illusion that Americans are just so damned “cool”. Not to mention this “cool” business is the result of years of culture killing by the aggressive marketing of American junk culture. It’s all about marketing, people, don’t be duped. There is NO fucking “coolest” anything to speak of; let’s not entertain such idiotic notions. Embrace the earth, its cultures, its peoples. EXPAND, strive, reach beyond your limits.

    So, let me get this right: you’re all about how awesome and cool Americans are, but yet talk shit about people smoking cigarettes, a quintessentially American indicator of “cool.”  Care to explain that little bit of sophistry?

    By the way, I’m California born-and-raised.

    I’ve been to both places. Picked up my herb and never had a problem. Maybe people like you would, because cocky ignorant fucks always get whats do in the hood.

    Snoop is cool, Americans are not. I have never seen so many fat people until I went to America. There are fat people everywhere in the world but in America they act as though being fat is a bloody contest.

    And who cares what technologies you have given the world. They are all hindered by consumption and the ones that aren’t are locked in some secret warehouse somewhere.

    Actually, my dollars worth more than yours, my country has more resources than yours,and I don’t smoke. I have been to the USA many times and have American friends. I don’t dislike the USA, see my previous post. If you actually check out who invented what, you will probably be shocked to find out that a lot of the inventors came from other countries. You do know that your country was settled by Europeans, right? Regardless, what have you invented? People have done amazing things in your country, but what have YOU done? Your not America, your just some dude and so am I.

    You just described a fractional percentage of Americans. A lot of us are well educated and know exactly what global warming is and don’t discriminate. Evolution exists but doesn’t explain everything science related like our existence (biology major here). It’s people like the TALIBAN that make the lesser educated folks in America so shallow (kind of like you – lesser educated). Those are the people we need to rid the world of.

  • Mpierc18

    Again, you just refuse to understand the greater good. America doesn’t exploit people’s resources, corporations do (that is an international problem). The US is not a “festering sore”, you are. It’s people like you who fail to realize what America truly is and stands for. We accept refuges from other countries who treat their people like shit. We give FREE education (FASFA) and healthcare (to an acceptable extent). We treat our own like family. Considering the way you talk about this country, you should not be included in that category. You should appreciate the country you live in, you loser. You could’ve been born in Somalia. (In which case the U.S.A. would’ve accepted you as a refuge you ignorant piece of terrorist scum.)

    Oldtown, you are foolish to generalize.  Especially about the the UK’s education and physical appearance.  Also we don’t hide behind our guns.  There is a lot of resentment coming from the rest of the world towards America,  and its not because people are jealous of your coolness.

    fairies are awesome, the states are filled with gay people! you guys are so backwards! I live in canada and we have gay marriage, and yet your population is much larger than our’s and you have many more gay people, yet you can’t come to terms with each other. The States are a mess! You are just attacking people so I guess I will attack you! (or not really). I just feel Americans are conditioned into being elitist, self absorbed cretins. The States are no better a country than any other, they just think their number one for whatever reason.. though they have little to no culture.. white people assimilate minorities and marginilize others that refuse to conform to their conventions….. whole lotta boolwacki
