Not true: most Italians break spaghetti. Moreover, "mama" is wrong. Correct word is "mamma".

I am German and all i am capable of are imperfect circles :'D

Yes, none of us can do a perfect circle. We use our German engineering skills to craft machines that warp space to make the circles look perfect within the visible dimensions

I assumed for "German" to be: Cross the street on a red light.

I'm German and everybody here does that. What made you assume that?

Circles? Try to mow your lawn on Sundays or go shopping in sweatshirt and sweatpants! It'll drive Germans insane!

Maybe he can't draw circles because his arm is facing the wrong direction. I'd probably cry too.

*rolling eyes* Really? First of all, you would say "DAS ist schrecklich". And most of the people I know couldn't even manage to draw round circles. And, I'm crossing streets on red lights, and I'm mowing the lawn on sunday (afternoon). But referring to other comments: american beer is of the devil and like Karl Lagerfeld said: "Wer eine Jogginghose trägt, hat die Kontrolle über sein Leben verloren" (people who wear sweatpants, have lost control over their lifes" ;)

Are you in Germany? I know in small city where I have family, it is illegal to mow the lawn on Sunday. I was under the impression it was country-wide

No, rather wish them a happy birthday a few days early. THAT causes visible pain.

I recieved death threats by confessing that I sometimes touch the car in front or behind me when I park, or when I take the pedestrian crossing while it is still red for me.

If you REALLY want to piss off any German, just make fun of David Hasselhoff. To most of us, he is a hero and an idol. (He tore down Berlin wall and proved he is one of us: By eating a hamburger drunk and half naked on the floor - we love that.)

That is tooo much irony for the internet. They'll all believe that. Which - when I tink of it - makes it even more funnier...
