All roads lead to Czechia. The Czechs seem to believe that the Earth is the center of the Universe, Europe is the centre of the Earth, and Czechia is at the centre of Europe. Reality Czechs.

Czech humor is distinguished by mad screams, breast and thigh slapping, and uncontrollable braying. Top of the Czech list. The Czechs would like to be seen as the cauldron in which all that's good from West and East melts; and if not the best, then at least one of the top nations in the world.

You can never be sure which stance they are going to take?the reassuringly reasonable, or the wildly irrational. I'm fine, really Stoicism, the capacity to greet life's vicissitudes with cheerful calm, is an essential ingredient of Englishness. Push-me, pull-you Two equally fundamental but contradictory English characteristics are a love of continuity and a yearning for change. In the English character these two opposite desires vie with each other constantly, which produces some curious behavior patterns and several characteristics most usually observed in the classic split personality.
