F.A.Q. about România?

Postby Quintuplets_Father » Mon Oct 06, 2008 5:50 am

i just found this question in F.A.Q. archive:
Wednesday, August 27, 2008:
Why did you make fun Rumania in Season 4 - Episode 3 ? ('m from Rumania ) keep on kickin ass
What's "Rumania"? whatever it is, it sounds pretty funny.

:lol: now, is that really a frequently asked question?? :?

Anyways, i can ensure you that no (real) romanian fan of SP is sore because of that episode. There are yet lots of crappy aspects about România that deserve making fun of, but which are not the target of that episode.

Reporting from "the assh :assface: le of the world" was Quintuplets Father. :wink: Back to you, Tom.
and btw: i broke the dam...

Oh yeah. In fact, a lot of Romanians still sign up and post just to tell us how much they hated that episode or how wrong they think Matt and Trey got it.

Really? .. hmmm.. well, too bad...

It's true that many (including me) might feel bothered by things like seeing wrong symbols associated with the already "suffering" image of a country, like that red star that appears at one point in the scene with the romanian leaders (yea.. we like to brag and to believe that we are not under communist leadership anymore.. but we're still haunted by ghosts from the past), or the russian accent (the common history of Romania and Russia is not a happy one) especially since the romanians aren't even a slavic language speaking people...

I could see (if i can rely on the accuracy of the polls on this forum) that the average age of the members is quite low, my guess is that the "kids", being more impulsive, tend to take a stance and start complaining alot easily (and if not, i certainly like to think that :? ), thus resulting in nominating this subject for FAQ list.

Ignoring whiners is the right thing to do in such case; after all, Matt and Trey's duty was not to create an accurate monography of romanians life, as also their purpose is not to make everyone happy (more like on contrary :) ), and not they are to be blamed for Romania's image, they only "documented" a wrong way public opinion thinks about romanian facts...

I didn't create my account (few days ago) to complain about this episode (i found the issue browsing randomly through FAQ archive, looking for something about the search features of this forum), i did it because i am really obsessed about SP, i love its history and what it became over the last years.

I am proud to be one of the people living in one of the few countries made fun of in this show (US, Canada, Mexico, Iraq, Ethiopia, China, Romania and probably more.. )

Respect.

Well, just like any other country, it has its good parts and its bad parts...

Yes, Vlad Ţepeş (as he is known by most of the romanians) played an importat role during very delicate times for Valahia (Wallachia - southern Romania), having to resist against Ottoman Empire expansion. I had the chance to find out that turksih people (or atleast those who payed attention on school :) ) still remember of him as "Kazıklı Voyvoda" meaning the "Impaler Prince", because of his favourite punishment.. both for outside enemies or "misbehaving" noble class...

For those who don't know, he was also known as "Drăculea" which in later literature became the inspiration for Dracula character...

@q_f,im glad that im not the only romanian that watches SP and it's not a little whiny romanian noob :),yeah our country isn't like that,but we aren't a 1st grade country also :)...let's say we are second grade :)

in my eyes world is divided in 4 wealth grades:
1.welthy countries,that dont have any sort of problems(USA,Canada,Spain,Germany,UK...)

2.countries that are in the desvoltation course(they were a 3rd grade country but they climbed up and will eventually,in time they will be a first grade country)...(Romania<in 1997 we were in the 3rd grade :)>,Croatia,Serbia...)

3.countries that "have what to eat" but they aren't too rich also...(Albania,Cuba,Uzbekistan,Bosnia...)

4.really poor countries,that have big problems(Namibia,Zambia,Mozambique...most of the african countries)

yeah...i hope that everyones agrees with me and all this subject will be closed ;)

and then we have. many people know about east and west germany and how it was divided, but even greater strugles took places in polland… you get the point„ …… we are…… down down down the list of countrys to be mentioned on our own newspapers and then it’s guy from north blows up building.

John...i didn't classified the countries after how popular they are...but about how rich they are!

any country can have all the attention in a moment...for ex. Georgia because of the war,Israel also(right now)

Romania isn't now in the center of the attention because in the last 3 years nothing major happened in Romania.last major thing with us happened like in 2006,when 3 journalists were kidnapped in Iraq.from what i've heard they were all over the news,i saw them on CNN international and stuff...but from there really nothing major happened!

and don't worry,i don't get offended that easly,i was joking also :)

and well...i was twice in the UK(in London) because some relatives of mine live there,and it was an actually nice trip :),i enjoyed England(yeah it's a little borring though)

Well… I think we had a mutual miscomunication then because I wasn't talking about popularity.

Yeaah! Peru is climbing to the 2nd position!! Yeah! XD! the one out of 3 countries not so much affected by the recession (China, India and Peru). One of the fastest growing economies in Southamerica.
(sorry, i´m patriotic) but yeah, we also have 2 major problems: our bureaucracy and our corrupt leaders XD.

Btw, i realized a lot of words in the romanian language are very similar (if not identical) to ours XD.
