    if uncool means, you geekly keep up the best economic balances and policies like germans, poles, turks with surplusses and being cool means the opposite, desastrous economic policies and balances with horrible householding, like the Spanish, US, Italy, Argentina... I ask myself why they did not include the “greeks” under the cool ones...

    If the people of Mercopress were cooler, what they aren't, they would put it straight forward and much more correct here on their blog,that Americans isn't a nationality but just a nickname of their real nationality: USA citizen (that's in their passport next to the word nationality), what not even an average person in the United States understand since most do not hold a passport for many reasons. How the word American is created for the people in the United States is another discussion, for what you have to go back to the good old days when people in Europe where more focused on that area.

    On the otherside I have to give credit to Mercopress that finally they have it correct though it's an opinion.

    ”The ten coolest nationalities: US (US citizen/USA citizen officially in their passport); Brazilians; Spanish; Italians; French; British; Dutch; Mexicans; Argentines and Russians. The five least cool: Belgians; Poles; Turks; Canadians and Germans.”

    There are still people in this age with more information available that Brazilian, Argentian or Hispanic is a race. Isn't that sad specially when those people claim to have the best education in the world in their country? Think about it.
