They are delicious with Maple Sirup.
Raw or cooked?

Whale, I've always preferred raw, seal, barely seared.

Look, it's simple, Americans can't be the coolest.

Try looking here instead.

See? Americans don't come out top. (Apart from in that stupid Badoo thing).

I am sorry but when it is a freaking -39 degrees outside, that your nostrils stick together because of the cold and your cheeks are so cold that it cracks, you ear are burned because of that cold and everytime you are breathing you feel the cold going into your lungs like thousand of rasor blades..... And you are waiting for the bus who is late and the only thing you think about is not that the country doesn't have ennemies nor corruption, but how the hell am I going to keep all my toes and how I am going to murder that bus driver for letting me freeze my freaking butt...

This is the moment in life when it is you against the nature!

Being from CT, I rather have the same view of New Yorkers that the Swiss have of Germans!

(or that people around here have of those from the north side of the Alps)

Re: Americans Voted The Coolest People In World, Belgiums Ranked As Dirt?

Well, considering that the human race seems to have a rather warped definition of what "cool" is... I guess this is one more reason to feel ashamed that I'm American.
