Is Portugal Shit? by Kid on 2003-02-16 08:28:37
I used to think it was. On the surface...its a load of crap. Nothing is different there. Everyone is the same, the same language, the same pigmentation, even the same name. This is, of course, because of their isolation due to the relative power of Spain. However, I've grown quite attracted to the idea of a country where every woman is called Maria, and every man Manuel or Antonio. Saves a lot of trouble. It'd be like a school uniform, except a uniformity in life. Not like those crazy Brazilians. Oh no. So....is Portugal shit?
I say NO

I enjoy Port wine. Some Texans need the explanation "You know this Port wine comes from Portugal". I've educated them to the point that they no longer tell others "This stuff comes from California, some asshole town called Port".

Port (actually called Porto here) is great. Like sherry, but just that extra bit classier. Don't mix it with several beers, vodka and tonic and a dodgy cocktail or you will be ill. They should put that on the label. On the "whether Portugal is good" front, i have a bit of knowledge. I work in the holidays with many a Portugoose, not many of which are bright enough to speak and English whatsoever, but i've had a good deal of conversation about Portugal with those who can. By all accounts its like Spain. Well you can't really say that, it's a big country with many an identities, Basque, Catalan... No es olé, es olé y es muchas mas cosas. Es flaménco y es muchas mas cosas. I digress. Its like southern spain, but even more relaxed as far as rules on the old fiesta go, and such other things. Its the whole thing of "You always want to do what you're not allowed to do" This laxe attitude, in which pretty much anything is allowed induces many problems with drugs and consequently drug related crime. However, nowhere's perfect, and as far as the beaches and foreign exports go... is Portugal shit?
Not as good as Spain, but a lot better than Luxembourg.

Well, a least WE PORTUGUESE are proud to be genuine and not a mix of race,color and languages.Americans are the native indians, all the rest is Crap , imported from Spain,Italy,England and so on... WE have an UNIQUE language , not an adultered language.We know where USA is located , but you still haven´t found that we have nothing to do with Spain, except for the borders.
AND what about all JOHN´s , Peter´s , Mary´s ,in USA ??
Another guy said where were not smart enough to speak English???? Don´t make me laugh , everyone learns to speak english in 2 or 3 weeks ( my 5 year old son speakes english). What about if you try to Speak Portuguese???? Hard isn´t it??? So, who´s dumbass??

|Can I also take this opportunity, amidst all this Portuguese controversy - something that I don't quite understand, given that I've only ever spoken positively (possibly a tocuh flippant with the name thing) about it. Try www.portcult.com - There is a lot of language pages there.|

Do you know a little bit about WORLD HISTORY ???? or do you think that before USA there was nothing? Nowadays we are a small country, economicaly inferior to our european brothers like the French or the Germans but we were a great nation some centuries ago (XV and XVI centuries). Spain and Portugal ruled the world (economically speaking). For more information search for The Tordesilhas Treaty... i can say that we are a proud people, with traditions and we like it..
In second: foreign languages are teached in our public schools so every child, teenager and young adult knows to speak, to read and to write other languages like english or french.
In third: Like in ALL countries there are common names.. Maria and Antonio are the most commom but there are also others like Fernando, Teresa, Rodrigo, Diogo, Joana and more...
In fourth: Do you know that Brazil was a Portuguese colony?? If you dont i sent you back to my first point and learn some world history. This was only to say that we share a lot of traditions with the Brazilians and in many ways they are like us... but with better weather and girls :)
And with this i conclude my argument... maybe you visited the wrong places in Portugal...

No, Portugal is not shit, but spain sucks!!!
Spanish people are liars, thiefs and cheats. Today they even try to steal land from Portugal. Portugal is much older than Spain and has a much richer history.
In north west spain they even speak portuguese not spanish!! they can't even have their own language!!
What is the nationality of Christopher Columbus?
well italians will say italian, spaniards will say spanish and Portuguese will tell u facts that r known about him! facts that suggest he is portuguese. Basically Portuguese will be truthful and tell u why they think what they do, spaniards are arrogant and have no intelligence!
Spain thinks it's so much better, well if u look at the history between the 2 country's u will see, they have lost more wars and have not acheived as much as Portugal. So to quote Muhammed Ali "they can't beat us physically, nor mentally"!!!
Thank you for reading!

|Portugal kicks ass, nice fish dishes and orange juice. Really most places are ok, EXCEPT BLOODY WALES - ITS SO MISERABLE!!! Don't mind some of the welsh though... except the ones that talk in their strange choke-y language behind your back, grrrr. All I wanna do is buy a pack of crisps mr shopkeeper, not listen to you flemming up insults to your mate in your little language. Nice valleys in wales though - see? Even wales has a saving grace.|

|Quite pleasant in its own little way and nufty for a holiday. But it can't beat that much prime grade meat, because if it did then the portuguese would all be in portugal, as opposed to Lowestoft which is where they all actually are. And I met one called Marina, and she was, indeed, wet. And stocked to the gills with live sea life.|

|What luck for England in Lisbon. David Beckham was in tears during his most recent stay in the country of Portugal. Here in Texas they rebroadcast a match between the Frenchy folk and the English. Incredible what can happen to a team in just a few minutes of play. Will you not get a second shot at avenging this strange defeat?|

Johnny! Sympathy appreciated! This is how it works: There are four groups of four teams. So each team plays three games. Then the top two teams in each group go through to the quarter finals. We dramatically lost to France, but we're playing Switzerland on Thursday, and Croatia on Monday. On paper, and judging by the way the latter two teams performed the other night, we should win. But you saw the match on Sunday! Football's a funny old game! If we proceed, and France proceed, there is a chance that we will meet again, in Lisbon again, in the Final, on July 4th. It's not over yet. And revenge could be the sweetes its ever been, not least if we beat the Germans in the semis.
Early days yet, though! I'll keep you posted!

Bless, and i thought i couldn't spell! anyway, HUGELY disappointed about the result last night, even moreso that i had to watch it in a room of 13 girls, who didn't even know which way we were bloody kicking, and myself! oh the throws of a modern relationship. Maybe everyone really does hate england and english football, apart from my scottish housemate who was as gutted as i was.
FAIRPLAY BOYS! YOU DID US PROUD, BUT YOU CAN'T ALWAYS BE ON TOP.

|Yes, it is a shit place to live and work. Portuguese people are the most boring, brain-dead morons I've ever encountered. They have no personality, no initiative and they always think that they are right about everything. They bear a permanent grudge against the rest of the world. A person that would be considered a social reject anywhere else would be considered completely normal here. That's the real reason this country is in permanent decline. I'm getting out as soon as I can.|

|The country, I know not much about. But is it right that the reputation of a whole country's fooball team is tarnished by one idiot of a player? Ok. Portugal have never been my favourite team ever but I feel the team's/country's persecution by the press, amongst others, for the actions of one twattish spoilt little shit bag is unjustified.|

|Yes, Portugal is shit, just like Spain is. Thanks to the 500 years of catholic inquisition. But Spain not only is a shitty, retarded country, but its inhabitants are incomensurably delusional! Back in Spain, they really do think they actually rule the world! For instance they refuse to speak english or any other language except their own, they are arrogant with tourists, they enslave immigrants in very backward farms, and the list goes on and on. We know we suck! But don't ask a spaniard to face reality. They can't! They probably are the silliest people in the world today.|

Yeah Portugal is Fucking WONDERFUL. Instead of paying 5019123923 dollar for a fuking bottle of cheap-ass wine we actually pay the deserving amount - 12 Euros, and that for the cheap ones.
-We have great fuking women, much better then your fat-ass obese ugly women (if you even call them women, more like beasts).
-Great weather (were don't have fucking hurricanes everywhere destroying everywhere).
-Yeah, we might not make as much money as you guys but it doesen't matter becuse it rather work for 7 hours and have lunch breaks and holidays and recreation and that shit then have to sit in a fuking cube all day and get paid nothing for it.
-Beaches, yes we have REAL beaches here and the polluted ones in Califonria don't count.
-Less black people, we have less black people to deal with which equals less crime.
-We use the rest of Europe as our toilets, we send all of our garbage to Spain so those dirty spicks can make fuking slums out of it.
-Cultured, we actually have some culture and no, culture is not eating fat ass burgers and sitting on your ass all day and watching baywatch.
-Speak more than one language, in Portugal we speak English, Portuguese, French, and Spanish while you lazy asswipes only no one language.
- Better than you, were better than you!

|I wish I could make it to Portugal when I was in Spain, I've heard good stuff about Lisbon. I am not sure if Portugal is shit, but my experience with Portuguese people is shitty. Most of the Portuguese that I've met here in North America or in Spain have two things in common, they were all full of themselves and ignorant. In Spain, they try hard to prove it to you as forigner that they're better than Spaniards, in a way that they speak better English. However, in my opinion, Spanish people are way ahead of Portuguese, they're more friendly, smarter, and down to earth. For the above commenter who mentioned that they descend from a pure portuguese race, that's very untrue, check the history, the Moors left their seeds in Portugal and Spain, ever wondered why a lot of Portuguese look like arabs? Besides, diversity in the US or anywhere else, is a virtue, Americans are proud of it.|

|Yep. Portugal definitly is a shit! I am a portuguese who lives in Viana do Castelo although I wasn't born in Portugal. I've been living here for 16 years and now I'm trying to get the hell out of here. The portuguese are a bunch of Hill billies and ignorants. They are always looking behind in time, proud of having been a colonial empire, like it is honorable to enslave other people. They all say: "We had half of the World in our hands once". First of all, it was half of the unknown world. Secound, it's easy to conquer others when they don't have a war technology as advanced as our own. Third, looking at the past as something good won't help you to construct a better future.rnThe portuguese are lazy, they always come late and have no discipline whatsoever. They just want to get drunk and eat.rnThis country is shit, the economy is on its knees and people are uneducated, yet they dare to say all the rest is shit.rnThe portuguese are also cowards...real cowards. They do whatever the state tells them to do and don't ever revolt against the decisions and laws that are bad for themselves. This country is a dictator's wet dream. People are like cattle that goes werever they are told to go as long as they have football, alcohol and Holy Mary.rnThe portuguese are also racists and xenophobes and they always make sick jokes about black people and they keep saying that Angola and Mozamibique were better places when they were under portuguese authority.rnThe climate is not as good as the portuguese claim either. Particularly not in the North of the country as it rains the whole Spring, Autumn and Winter and it's very cold. During the Summer there are some sunny days but they are unpleasent due to the moist.rn I could spend my whole day talking about these shitty assholes and their cheap country, but I have to go back to work. If you are thinking about moving here, think twice.rn|

Spain exports the worst people in the world by every definition of the word "worst". Thats why the antichrist will be from spain. They are the dumbest and the most selfish. Not to mention most arrogant and prideful. Basically they are the worlds biggest sinners and the worst influence on the rest of society. Total losers. Complete wastes of space.

You're right, Portugal is fucking shit, and Spain too. I'm Spanish, so I can tell you that everything in this fucking country is fucking shit. Our lenguage is shit, our traditions are shit, and our fucking pseudo-culture is the most filthy shit in the fucking world. Spain is the fucking worst state of the United Europe. How could we compare this shit with great nations such as Germany, Sweden or Norway? The fucking Spanish stereotipes (gypsies, bullfighting and all that rubbish) are bullshit, and flamenco is the worst kind of music I've ever listened. Our tipical gastronomy (probably the only good stuff here, after all) isn't even ours. Paella is Catalan, and Catalans don't wanna be Spanish! Little wonder why Catalan and Basque people don't want to belong to that shit: they feel ashamed of being Spanish! And Portugal is just a fucking bad imitation of Spain... Sorry about my grammar, Spanish education is bullshit.
