    Post Who Are The Coolest Germanic People?

    Who are the coolest Germanic people?
    Similar to my 'Coolest Slavs -pointless thread tm' I've decided to ask all of you to vote for the historically and culturally COOLEST GERMANIC PEOPLE.

    I've broken them down by linguistic, ethnic and regional grouping, just so there are more candidates, and because there are differences in achievments between various historical regions.

    PS. Moderators: if I've forgotten to mention someone, please add them as an option to the poll.

    I have to go with the Dutch as I'm of around half New Netherlander heritage....and they're good at growing things. And I don't mean Tulips. ;-)

    Tough call though as I've always had an affinity for the Angles and Saxons...

    Icelanders (even though my mother is Norwegian)!

    They don't bother anyone. : )

    And I forgot to add that the Norwegian Black Metal scene is/was probably the best Black Metal scene ever, and I love Black Metal.

    Swedes! The Denmark and Icelanders are pretty cool as well.
    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.

    They are too hardcore in Norway; a little too over the top for me.

    Varg Vikernes; black metallers breaking into morgues and decapitating corpses and such.

    [And Dimmu Borgir is dreadful.]

    Am not too much into the "black metal" scene. What was decapitating corpses about..shock?

    I beg to differ, Dimmu Borgir kicks ass albeit being too commercial. Great Norwegian band although their awesome drummer is English.

    I voted for English, they have the best humor( ever),and out of Germanic peoples, they have: best designed cars, incredibly interesting history ( a little more interesting than Austrians ), best rock music, best language, best style ( when their style is bad, it's bad with style :-D ( see English football fans, only fools and horses series, cockney accent etc. ).

    Also, as a plus, they are largely mixes with Kelts, who I adore :-)
