Response to LuvNewcastle (Reply #9)

15. I often think that religion is invented by the ruling class to herd the flock.

Having traveled abroad somewhat extensively, I never realized "the Ugly American" until i came across a few while being in other countries. The xenophobia, self importance and closed mindedness oozes from many and perhaps it originates out of fear or their narcissistic upbringing. I do know that in every country, if there is a fistfight it's typically an American, Brit or Australian that is involved. It's one of the reasons I flee the tourist traps and seek out my own adventures. I'm typically congenial and accepting by nature and I've met some wonderful people in a variety of places.
