HARD FACTS: WHAT IS UP WITH KIWI'S?

First of all, this is NOT a racist rant against all NZ people, NOR is it an attack on their independence, egalitarian attitudes or manhood - just an observation of one who has come across a very real and reoccurring theme in the attitude and mentality of the average Kiwi (New Zealand) male and all I can say is WTF?


To this date, I have NOT met a single Kiwi male who wasn't:
  • Overly nice to me at first...
  • A 1ooo question man (which you had better answer correctly!)
  • Dissatisfied with my answers...
  • Flippy (Jekyll and Hyde)
  • Directly insulting in a variety of ways and finally...
  • Overtly aggressive and 1 step away from trying to kill you, themselves, or both!
Wikipedia explains part of the reason for this here:

The hard man: New Zealand men have often been stereotyped as strong, unemotional and prone to violence. For many years this was seen as a good thing... in recent decades the macho attitude has been criticised as dangerous both to men who embody it and those around them. It has been blamed for New Zealand's culture of heavy drinking and its high male suicide rate.
All I can say for sure is, I'm NOT looking forward to my next Kiwi male encounter, and I hope that I survive it with all my limbs (and areas of brain) intact!
