    3 another examples of non Slavic looking Germans, first is typicaly square faced, the second have long and compresed (narrow) nose and narrow jaw, the third one coul be clasified as Slavic look but again distance betwen lips and nose is slightly too big (celtic? basque? trait) and lower part of face (from nose) is much longer in proportion to the length of the nose.

    It's widely accepted that the Slavs are not a racial but a cultural group but it's also a fact that most people have a notion of "Slavic look". It might be the mannerism, of being brought up in Slavic culture of course; but then, not having been brought up in a Slavic country, I've always heard that comment myself; that I have a "Slavic look", whatever that implies. Here in the U.S, I'm automatically classified as being "Slavic" and I don't even speak a Slavic language fluently, nor do I have a very distinct accent. I'm not promoting the theory of Slavic people being of a common sub-race, but there is such a thing, at least in many people's minds that a Slavic look does exist. And to people whom I had never disclosed my ethnicity, it's rather thought provoking that they should guess so easily. Leaves me wondering.

    Well, how do you explain the genetic, cultural, and linguistic similarities (if the Slavs are not a racial group; again, tell that to Polak).

    It seems to me that Rusalka was agreeing with you.

    It seems to me that it's quite clear that I'm rather confused on the subject and not really taking a stand. I cannot speak as confidently as providenje and Triglav here; both having lived and living in Slavic countries, respectively. I myself can more or less tell if people are from a Slavic descent, at least I make a good guess most of the time, but I don't know if this is because of the mannerism most Slavic people share due to culture, or actual sub-racial traits.

    In any case, I don't think it's very scientific to assume that Northern Russians share the exact same phenotype as, say, Bulgarians. I'm not saying anyone is doing that here, but both are Slavic countries and peoples if it comes to that. Of course it's valid at this point to say that Russians have a different sub-race than Bulgarians and that they are predominantly Nordic as opposed to mostly Dinarid Bulgarians. In that case, what makes a "Slav" from the racial point of view?

    I think this is a rather complex subject. I had only wanted to give a personal example.

    I think people are talking more about Northern Germanics vs Northern Slavs, and Southern Germanics vs Southern Slavs and their respective differences. ie a Nordic Swede and a Nordic Pole somehow look different, just as for some reason, an Alpine Austrian might look different from an Alpine Serb.

    Also, there must be something to this theory it if people have pegged "new worlders" such as you and me as Slavs, even though we probably don't exhibit any noticeable mannerisms.

    The only "Slavic" groups that are genetically and phenotypically simmilar to any appreciable extent are Russians and Poles. Belarussians are Slavicized Balts, Ukrainians are Slavicized Iranians who resemble Southern Germans and Hungarians, etc...

    It's useful to provide links when making such assertions.

    Have you had this discussion with Polak? and have you read the arguments in the link I posted?

    Russian Patriot is right. Slovenia doesn't look "Slavic either". Even though some have claimed I have a "Slavic" look about me and I definitely resemble a Pole or a Russian more than the average Slovenian, Polak maintained that I look Finnish or Swedish.
