French native speaker, I had no idea Bourgogne could be translated
Also, agree with Kal on his assessment of US culture, but I'd also like to add that the US is about the size of the entirety of Europe (minus Russia) and has waaay more people than any single European country... which means in a lot of cases it does make a lot of sense to focus on America. Plus, there's the little fact that US has more JetPunk users than any country other than the UK, so a lot of people on this site will know the US-centric answers. If you don't like the US-centric quizzes, just don't take them.
Of course the US has diversity, and I don't think anyone has suggested differently. However, by and large, the whole of the US has a common language, a common history, a common political system, a common legal system, common cultural representations (ie. people listen to similar music, watch similar movies and TV shows, read similar books, care about similar sports, eat similar things, etc.). That's not to say that they are the same, but they have a broadly unified culture (many European countries also have this kind of diversity within their borders).
What the US does have, which you might be referring to, is strong minority cultures, which is to be expected, as it is a nation of immigrants. However, those minority cultures exist within the framework of a common culture. That's not the case in Europe.
Not going to bother reading the rest of whatever non-self-aware tripe you've deposited above. It's just so sad.
the most difficult thing about this quiz was getting the english right. It normally allready takes a bit attention though the more you write in one sitting the more natural it gets. But when reading other language, your mind isnt in "english mode" anymore. So typing in english suddenly isnt natural and without thought anymore. All the languages get jumbled haha.
On the other hand, if you are a fast learner, I could teach you the Korean alphabet (including pronunciation) in around an hour.
It's actually a funny story: Usually, the family name "Bayer" derrives from an ancestor from Bavaria. Friedrich Bayer, the founder of Bayer AG, was born as Beyer, and only changed his name later in life, when a scam artist also named Beyer gained infamy. This Beyer derrived from the Lusatian word bajer, which means Story-teller.
So, the similarity is pure coincidence.
