    So which part here is the WTF? that the russians made a silly joke, or that the canadians have too much bureaucracy to remove it?

  • Matt (unregistered)

    Biggest WTF is that CorrespondenceDeliveryMethods is in plural. Should be named CorrespondenceDeliveryMethod.

    National stereotypes. What's that aboot? eh.

    So which part here is the WTF?

    That the author doesn't know what a stereotype is. A stereotype is a true statement, albeit often an oversimplification. For instance, "men commit most violent crime" is a stereotype about men, and easily verified from crime stats. It's still bad to assume from that that a specific man must be a violent criminal. "Canadians ride moose" is not a stereotype, it's a myth.

    ahem.... https://www.google.com.co/search?q=Canadians+ride+moose&safe=active&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiB-YD9mt_XAhXMRiYKHdADAj0Q_AUICigB&biw=1280&bih=933

    "Canadians ride moose" is, as shown by Rafa's image search, a generalization with many true specific instances. Moreover, it's a poorly specified generalization; it should be more clearly given, such as "Some Canadians sometimes ride moose" or "Some Canadians have ridden moose in the past", both of which are true; or "All Canadians ride moose all the time" or even "All Canadians ride moose sometimes", both of which are are false.

    "men commit most violent crime" is a statistic, not a stereotype. "Men are violent criminals" is a stereotype that uses that grain of truth to propagate.

    Sorry, only PROGRAMMERS are violent criminals. Look at all the horrendous software they inflict upon us! ;)

  • Worf (unregistered)

    A stereotype is just a gross oversimplification of an attribute to a group.

    E.g., "Asians are terrible drivers" Or "Canadians are polite" Or "Americans are crude" Or "IT workers have poor hygiene" Or "IT workers have poor social skills"

    How true: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4xOtyUgtZ8&t=0s :)

    It is worth mentioning that Matt Parker is Australian.

    A Sociologist, a Physicist and a Mathematician travel to a foreign country, and see two black sheep.

    The Sociologist claims: "All sheep are black in this country" The Physicist replies: "That is too general, you can only say 'there are at least two black sheep in this country'" The Mathematician counters: "Actually, that is still too general. you can only say 'there are at least two sheep, who are black on at least one side'"

    Apparently, I'm a Finn. Shame about the country I was actually born into, though.

    I'm so sick of people by this point, however, 3 meters might be on the low side.

    actually, every stereotype has its prototype:-\
