So I came across this article and most of the facts about Europe are false. Especially, this one about The Netherlands is so weird: "In Sweden and the Netherlands, there are no curtains on the windows."

Huh? Who comes up with these "facts"?

Germany:
There was a warning that people might run around naked here.
Yes, we do have areas where being naked is allowed, and I think we're also a bit more easygoing about it - but it's not like people run around in the streets being naked.

For the country I live in, it’s that we’re all morbidly obese and stupid.

For the country I’m from, we’re all a bunch of terrorists and our country is a war zone that must be avoided at all costs yet we’re available for the global superpowers to exploit our cheap labor.

There's also a state where it's illegal to cross state lines with a duck on your head. Can't remember which one though

This isn’t the whole US, just Connecticut, but pickles must bounce. Yes, you read that right, pickles must bounce because 2 guys were selling pickles that didn’t bounce and were “unfit for human consumption.” This was back in 1948 btw.
