Smile Post a random fact about your area . . .

. . what I mean with this thread is . . how is your area perceived in your country ? ( there are stereotypes being associated with any country of our race and then , again ,with certain areas within these countries per se . .) . . You might also recite how many foreigners live there and so on . .

- - -

I am Northern German . . I view myself as such and identify with this . .

The German peoples are not a unitarian people . .

Germany , from its beginning , has been a collecting-place of different Germanic peoples ( hence , in the English-speaking world , the name 'Germany' ) . . They were all unified under the Franks in ancient times ( Charlemagne ) . . After the great migration of the Germanic tribes in ancient times different Germanic peoples / tribes lived all across Europe . . .

They were all gotten together into one empire under Charlemagne ( at least many of them ) . .

That's how Germany came to pass ..

Needless to say ,the differing mentalities within Germany to this day still largely stem from the difference between those tribes and their languages . . Even though all Germanic languages of old were related to each other , there were clear differences . . Also between Nordic Germanic tribes and Alpine Germanic tribes..

That's why we have so many dialects in Germany today , often very different from each other . .

- - -

My area ( Northern Germany ) . .

We are often called 'Northern lights' or 'fish-heads' within Germany ( in translation ) since the northern part of Germany is the only one with acess to the sea . .

]

Furthermore . . Northern Germany is largely the place within Germany where people are said to not really have a dialect per se . . . ( Little explanation : Standard German as it is known today was standardized by the Protestant reformer Martin Luther . . The Northern Germans were among the first to 'take over' "Luther's German" , in the beginning only the upper-class there , in time it became more or less the standard for all of Northern Germany . .) . . The original dialect spoken in the northern German region is today called 'Plattdeutsch' , based on old Saxon .. The best German is said to be spoken in Hannover , Lower Saxony today . .

( I was born in Lower Saxony , even lived in Hannover for some time . .)

Furthermore , northern Germany is perceived to have a very kind mentality among 'people from beyond' ( it is one of the most popular travel-regions within Germany . .)

Concerning Bremen , my home town , a trait of character which is associated with the hanseatic peoples in general is that they are helpful . .

I suppose without these often held up things Northern Germany would be even poorer than it is presently ( the south is relatively rich in Germany , the north . . not so much . .) . . We get a lot of tourists.


- - -

Concerning foreigners . . Northern Germany is not that bad hit with other races ( some cities though ) ,more of them in the south ( where all the money is . .) . .

- - -

That's it for me . . how 'bout your respective areas . .?



P.S.: The melody for this song was taken from 'The Wild Rover'

My area is notorious for all the meth and pill heads. However, there are some of us who'd like to see justice exacted against these criminal, degenerate scum.

I think Germany had a great idea with work camps, and that's where junkies need to be sent.

I'd have them out in the fields stacking hay bales sun up till sun down, 6 days a week, for 3 hots and a cot, working for the biggest asshole they've ever seen. I'd love to apply for a "coordinator" role.

Talking

lol . . on a side note . .

One of the slogans of the German federal area of Baden-Württemberg is . .

"Wir können alles . . ausser Hochdeutsch" ( "We are good at everything . . except for standard German" )

lol

Which means that this area has masters in all fields ( today also one of the richest areas in Germany ) . .

And indeed a lot of 'geniuses' throughout time stemmed from that area . . People like Hegel or Schiller . .

The other half of the slogan implying that the only thing they have difficulties with is communicating standard German . .

lol

And , indeed , the dialects spoken there are alleged to be very hard to understand by 'outsiders' . . They are mostly based on schwäbisch ( Swabian ) . .

Since I've mentioned the good standard german spoken in my area today , I suppose with areas like Lower Saxony the slogan might be turned ( a not-so-well-off area financially and also difficult when it comes to job-market . . . except for the 'good Hannover-based German' spoken there . . . ; Hannover-German , when compared with the English-speaking world , would be our Oxford-English , lol ) . .


So I suppose the slogan of areas like Lower-Saxony could be . .

"Wir können nichts . . nur Hochdeutsch" . .

lol . .

Just a little self-irony on my part . .

Some areas in Germany truly need to lift themselves up . .

lol . . in case you're interested in the ancient Northern German dialect though . .

Here . .

The 'Friesenlied' ( song of the Frisians )

Quote:
Wo de Nordseewellen trekken an den Strand

Wo de gehlen Blomen blöhn int gröne Land

Wo de Möwen schrien , hell int Stormgebrus

Dor is miene Heimat , dor bün eck tohuus . .

Wind und Wogen summen mie dat Weegenleed

Und die hohe Dieck , die kennt mien Kinnertied

Kennt och all mien Sehnsucht , as noch lütt eck weer

In die Welt to fleegen , över Land und Meer

Nu is alles verswunnen wat mie quäl und triev

Hävv dat Glück wohl funnen , doch die Sehnsucht bliev
That translates as . .

Quote:
Where the waves of the northern sea hit the beach

Where the yellow flowers bloom into the green countryside

Where the seagulls are screaming , lightly into the roaring storm

This is where my home is , that's where I'm at home

Wind and waves are are hummig as my lullaby

And the high dike witnessed my early days

Also witnessed my yearning when I still was small

To fly unto the world , over land and sea

Now everything has vanished what used torment and drive me

Sure have found the fortune , yet the yearning remains

If they can be reclaimed at all, I can agree but it'll never happen under the current US legal system. They're public health threats causing epidemics in a number of cities, including mine, and should be handled as such.
