Country Trading Card #101
Feb. 18th, 2005
Folks say that America is a "melting pot" full of many different heritages mixing together and stuff. I don't know most of my heritage, all I know is that I'm a quarter Lithuanian. Most people have great stereotypes they can use to describe themselves heritage-wise, not me. I hardly know anything about Lithuania. I have not really met anyone else who is Lithuanian either (outside my family, ofcourse) except one of my fun gaming friends, Levicon, who is also a quarter Lithuanian (so he claims, maybe he was just making fun of me).
Most of what I know about Lithuania I learned tonight via Google.
Lithuania is a parliamentary democracy, the current leader is President Valdas Adamkus (from CIA world fact book, which has oodles of facts)
I did find some stereotype-ish stuff at this site, which pretty much says that most people have no idea what Lithuania is and some Lithuanians hate polish people.
I guess my lack of wordly knowledge just goes to show that I really do have a heritage.. as a dumb American.
