I think when it comes to the landscape, the US must be at least just as awesome as Canada.

US doesn't attract me as a whole, Canada is a stronger contender in terms of hot guys and stunning and various landscape.

:whistle:
I dunno. I think the US has more going on (are there deserts or pacific islands in Canada?) and I can't really believe that you can tell a difference between Canadian and American guys. They're both made up of random mixes of immigrants, with Irish and Anglo-Saxon majorities. We all look the same.

A desert and a Pacific island. Need anything more from Canada?

When you're there, head to the beaches. Australian beaches are godly. Surfer dudes with sculpted physique abound. :P Yes, it's exactly like that in real life. Just don't expect them to spell 'crustacean' right.

Hawai‘ian beaches are best beaches. :aww: (I always thought this smiley was less "aww" and more "derrp.")

Nah. Oriental is mildly racist. Holland is just inaccurate.

No more than calling someone a "Westerner" or an "Occidental"...

I think that calling someone an "occidental" sounds really weird, but hearing "westerner" sounds normal to my ears.

Does the word "Occidental" exist in English by the way ? :lol: That's the word for "Westerner" in French. I think I got a bit confused.

Edit : Oh yes, I checked. Then what is the difference in English between the two ?

I've only seen the word "occidental" in the names of locations like Occidental Mindoro. "Westerner" is used to describe people from the West. I rarely ever hear "occidental" and "oriental" in normal conversation, but I don't think they sound offensive.

Ah... I see. So there's no such thing as a "western climate" or an "occidental person" then ? :)

What is a western climate? Western can describe anything of the west, but I was talking about "westerner". I think "occidental person" sounds really weird, but its understandable.
