Now this is mostly an American trait, but it's open to all walks of life. I'm talking about the strange habit many nations have of being proud of things that they just.. well shouldn't be..

Like how America seems to be proud of this:



That's Vietnam, so you know.

and this piece of FUG




Also.. Sweden are proud of these dude:



Qvick! To Ikea!


And courtesy of Obskeree:-
England is for some reason proud of these.



Mmmm delicious queues~


So what other retarded things are people proud of? >D

^ I agree with tegan on credit scores, I never understood the American desire to amass as large a horde of wealth as possible, but do nothing with it.

Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
I am an aggressive. I love adding to the flavor of a story and bringing in NPCs (I sometimes fall in love with NPCs and make them full characters). There are times when I want to be lazy though so I don't mind playing in a game someone else is directing.
Favorite Genres
Fantasy, be it full blown other world, modern Earth or spacey. I don't mind other genres. I love action in general.
Genre You DON'T Like
Horror and technical sci-fi.

I'm proud of mega farts... =[



Hmmm, what dumb things are people generally proud of...

Bedpost notches. Gross. XP Nothing wrong with multiple sex partners as long as you respect yourself and aren't foolish about it... and having lots of sex just to boast about having lots of sex is dumb.

Gross plastic surgery. Heidi Montag being a perfect example. Meg Ryan too.

Prescription drug abuse. Yes, there are people who are proud of the number of vicodin or codeine they can take at once without feeling any effects.

I'm good with both! I can lead or follow and I'm equally okay with either. (Although it can change depending on the scene too!)
Favorite Genres
Adventure stories! They can be fantasy, modern, sci-fi, all kinds! Give me some good world travel stories and I'm all over it! I also enjoy romance stories and even though I tend to play females I love playing gay men.
Genre You DON'T Like
Smut. It's not that I dislike it, I just can't write it out, I'm better at just writing smut scenes by myself.

I'm assuming you're also including myspace/facebook friend counts? "Oh look I've got 120,320 friends but I only know like three of them in real life."

Also guys that work out too much. "I'm proud of the fact that I look like a garbage bag stuffed with meat." Nothing wrong with a little definition but when you look like the powerthirst guy, you have a problem

How is that something to be proud of? I would be pretty pissed off if I abused a drug for recreational purposes and then didn't feel anything.

The real sluts measure success by the number of broken bedposts... Whores.

People who are proud of their own retardedness...Ex. this dumbass who got kicked out of the army when I first arrived in Germany for popping hot for cocaine.
