Is coolness factor partially based on a government out of control vs. no government to speak of?

I'm glad to see I go against the flow... again. I love Belgians.

I'm very sorry for the Swiss, but the absolute best chocolate in the world is Belgian. (Except for those that started using vegetable fat instead of cocoa fat, but we won't get into that now).

The Belgian are just misunderstood. They are fabulously quirky & totally cool. The philistines who did that poll don't get it.

How credible is a poll conducted by a social networking site (badoo.com) based on their own members?

That list is a joke! French? The coolest no5? Really? Turcs and canadians in the least cool? No way!

I scream Bullshit on this list!

Clearly issued by the top 10 nations to piss off the lower 10. Canadians are way cooler than anyone else on the planet, how else could the Eskimos survive battering innocent baby seals over the head in the middle of winter? Clearly awesomely cool and not to be messed with.

What makes you think they are innocent?

Meanwhile, I look forward to my next whaling expedition/seal hunt in Norway.

I think you got the order backwards.

With Belgian beer, cheese, and chocolate, how can they not bee the coolest?

Really, does anyone here find American beer, cheese, or chocolate better (or even REMOTELY equal)?

The mind boggles!
