JR 3's Comments

Come visit our country, and we'll watch you like monkeys in a zoo if you actually ENJOY it? LOL

Truth is, Russia's entire history required skepticism and doubt, suspicion and covert activity, just to survive. No wonder that it's been internalized by the culture. Americans, who've not had to live under those sorts of regimes, have not done so.

Yes, there really are relatively happy people here. We also enjoy traveling, and are friendly for the most part.

This piece also blows up the entire previous meme of the 'ugly American', but shows animosity towards the people anyway. Doesn't matter how we act, someone is going to have a problem with it. Be grumpy, we're poor guests. Be happy, we're loons. What it really illustrates is some serious ethnocentrism on behalf of the Russian people. They might try getting out of their emotional box and see a bit of the world.
