    I had an idea for a light hearted thread that I don't want to decend into insults, that is why I am posting it here rather than on any other forums. Basically the idea is that you come up with what you think to be the best thing to come out whatever country, I will kick off with my list, feel free to come up with many things for a single nation if you wish, the one rule is you can't come up with something for your own country.

    Belgium: The saxophone
    Poland: Those strange sausages, I forget the name
    Slovakia: Slivovitz, lovely liquor
    Germany: Wurst and militaria of course
    France: Food for sure, cider (mmm) and the book 'The Little Prince'
    South Africa: Bilton and their national anthem which is beautiful
    Nepal: The Gurkhas and the Khukri
    The USA: Peanut Butter and The Doors

    Next...
