    Surely 'American Culture' is an oxymoron? :mischief:

    Ironically enough, the idea that America had no culture is also a product of America culture.

    You're the person who is afflicted with delusion.

    The responses I posted in this thread have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Hindutva or Hindu nationalism. I'd also like to make it clear that I don't really subscribe to any one ideology, like I used to earlier.

    You are seeing phantoms created by your own brain. Get over it.

    We were sitting in a group, four facing the girl's crack, and the others facing us. How could we all move just because on girl decided to expose her rather repulsive anal hair?

    Grin and bear it - that's what men have to do nowadays. ;)

    anything that is against english speaking educated people who find their cultural origin wacky is inherently hindu nationalism.

    It isn't. Don't pretend to understand things as complex as Indian politics and society from such a distance, with such a warped view.

    As a non-USAmerican, I'd have to say it's pretty strong around everywhere in the world, even among USA' enemies.

    Anyway, it has it's good and bad influence, imho.

    If this was Civ 4, America would be well on it's way of winning a culture victory by now.

    I have a few friends over seas. And I can always talk to them about new movie, music, ect, that came out.

    It's also helps a lot that most widely spoken (1st or 2nd) language around the world is English. Or maybe it's the other way around.

    Couldn't you have asked her to move? That's a bit direct, but that's what I would have done - if the ass was as hairy as I imagine.

    I was at a bar in Calgary with my buddy once - we were there for beers and to watch a soccer game. Right in front of us there was a couple - a girl and a guy.. the girl was facing away from us - towards the big screen TV. This was distracting because... her ass was hanging out. Now, don't get me wrong, it was very nice.. but it was very distracting - we couldn't help it but look and laugh about it.

    It was so funny, in fact, that on our way out I stopped beside her, put my arm around her, and said "Miss, your ass is hanging out".. and what does she say? "Thank you!".. I don't think I've ever heard my friend laugh so hard, on our way out of that place.

    So yeah, whatever, I realize that usually this would result in a slap - but I was fully expecting one and was ready for it. If somebody is being inconsiderate - call them on it. It might backfire, but hey.. wahtever.

    American culture is everywhere in the world, and America is one of the most cultured nations out there. People claiming otherwise are confused by the ignorant farmers from the MidWest (all countries have the likes of them). Look to the cities instead - New York is cultural capital of the world. The reason is simple - capitalism. People are richer, don't have to waste their time working in the field and have more time to create, enjoy art instead (books, movies, paintings). Also - more money = more endorsements for upcoming artists - think Renaissance period Italy.

    A perfect example of prevalence of everything American is Al Queada guys wearing Nikes...

    That's partially true, but it ignores a whole load of other reasons for American cultural dominance.
