How can foreigners tell if someone is from YN

Postby The Huterric Union » Mon Jul 30, 2018 10:07 am

As a foreigner, how would I be able to spot someone from YN in an instant

If you are a foreigner, you will know someone is Huterric if:
  • We write anything on the internet that is of little importance in our accents and slang. For example, the sentence "I dropped my computer on the path and now it's broken" becomes "I dun drop kumpoota un tsa parf ind na it brahk'n".
  • They end a lot of sentences with "y'know", although pronounced "Ye'nah" due to our accent.
  • They put their adverbs before the verb when speaking German, i.e. "Ich schnell laufe" instead of "Ich laufe schnell".
  • You cannot say "Monday, 14th July 2003", the day of the Huterrica Square Incident which saw a monorail station bombed, without an emotional response. It could be about the conspiracy that the incident was staged by the government so it had an excuse to rebuild the area for economic benefit, or it could be about how united the city of Lansadas has become since the event, or it could even be about the improved Lansadas one can see today and how much safer it has become. Either way, every Huterric has a strong opinion about the events of 14th July 2003 and we see it in the way Americans see 9/11.
  • Cherry trees are brought up in celebrations you invite them too. If someone, without permission, just randomly plants a cherry tree at a celebration or holiday you can bet with all your money they are Huterric or have heritage from our glorious nation.
  • They are aware that same-sex PDA is illegal in some countries they visit, but still engage in it in those places anyway.
  • They expect the same high standards in road planning as we have here, and will happily compare your highways to ours on car journeys when least appropriate
  • They grow up to believe the Huterric way of life is a basic human right because they've been taught that freedom justifies anything that's legal here but not elsewhere, and so they find the concept of abortion being illegal or the banning of same sex marriages as completely alien to them

Men still wear hats. Fedoras, cowboy hats, berets, and ball caps are most popular for men. Women wear all sorts of head coverings from the sublime to the ridiculous. Children's school uniforms are usually barracks caps or bucket combination caps, although ballcaps are becoming more popular.

Men's suits are usually German cut with American sleeves and tails. The collars of jackets and suits have detachable (usually cloth or leather) coverings called ribbing. Ribbing is usually the color of ones belt and shoes, but sometimes to represent a function. Detachable sleeve buttons are colored to match the ribbing. Suit colors tend to be dark and vary across the spectrum but always in a very subdued tone. Dark autumn/murky green or purple tend to be popular choices.

Narlanders tend to say, "Greetings" or "Howdo" for Hello. A Narlander will say Goodbye to abruptly end a conversion or in parting with someone they expect to see shortly. The will say, "Farewell" to someone they do not expect to see soon, or to someone with whom they never want to see again.

Narlandren talk with their hands much like Italians. When excited they may talk with their whole body in what appears to be bad choreography.

At restaurant a Narlander will use silverware in the manner of Americans, however the napkin is spread out over the entire lap, and men are expected to keep their hands in plain sight at all times, usually resting their wrists on the edge of the table in front of them. Narlandren tend to pass the food counterclockwise around the table. Narlanders tend to use a fork to eat everything even sandwiches (when at a dinner table) or in all but the most informal of settings. "Fingerfoods" are usually hors d’oeuvres and fowl. Soup is supped in a manner similar to Japanese but without slurping, and the spoon mostly reserved for deserts.

Most Narlander men will give a "power handshake" ala Napoleon Hill/Dale Carnegie while a woman will clasp hands.

Narlanders tend to laugh heartily and loudly, sometimes near maniacally, but otherwise maintain a quiet level in their conversation.

Eclisians are usually shown in public wearing lab coats with lab access carts, trasparent-display tablets and electronic glasses, they usually travel in group. They are also known for being workaholic and humorless. Eclisians in general appreciate productivity, and will get mad of services offered to them were slow or lacks in professionalism (they are usually very well educated with insanely high expectations for everything).

When greeted, Eclisians will generally smile slightly then nod as a form of politeness, however, they do not wish being disturbed in the middle of an experiment. During leisure time, Eclisians may wear traditional Roman-style toga or other form of greeting, they will say "salve" as a form of greeting. In general, even during leisure time, Eclisians are well-mannered, and will be visibly annoyed if someone talks loudly or makes a mess without cleaning it up after.

Eclisians are also known to be tutors somehow. It is quite common for Eclisians to give lectures even outside schools simply because someone asked for homework help.

There's a bunch of factors that can help you identify someone from Juvencus. Some of which include:

The Juven populace is extremely good at speaking a lot of languages and can often just start conversations in Italian and finish them in French, since 100% of the populace is fluent at speaking both, as well as a variety of different languages like the local Juven language, English, Catalan and some Occitan and Valencian as well.

They're LOUD and they won't stop being loud even if you slap their faces with all your force.

The average Juven is an extremely athletic person, much more than the average athletic multiversal person and it will be obvious when someone is Juven or not.

Talking about an Osci to a Juven will result to them calmy telling you the following text "Do you mean South Juven? Cause that's what they are! All of us Juven people are waiting for the day Oscioru decides to unify with us once more and create the most glorious Catholic Empire(or footballing nation, depends if the person loves football or not) of the multiverse." Also after saying the previous text, the average Juven will either proceed to become really angry or disappointed that the split ever happened.

The Juven people have made an extremely weird code language on the internet, a mixture between italian, french, catalan and valencian that nobody outside of Juvencus(or Oscioru) can understand.

• If you ask them “What are you?”, 70% of a chance they’ll say “I’m [insert any of the 9 directions here] Suhurbian.” and 30% of a chance they’ll just say Suhurbian.

• You give them meat for a meal and they look at it in sheer disgust.

• They would do a prayer/ritual on certain times of the day.

• They either practice multiple religions, or no religion at all.

• They carry crystals and stones with them and even wear them.

We doubt that other civilizations would worship Kong Qingdong to the extent demanded by Kong Qingdong. If there are those who are enlightened enough to worship Kong Qingdong, they likely do so in the privacy of their homes or else in designated areas. Compare this to the True Chinese Federation citizen who remained brainwashed after fleeing this nightmarish hellscape who would get on their knees and pray for Kong Qingdong's omnibenevolent mercy, grace, and wisdom every waking moment. Yes, a truly patriotic citizen would constantly worship Kong Qingdong and do little else, many even forget to eat or sleep in their eagerness to worship him.

We speak in thick accents that hit consonants strongly and can string multiple together.

Most men grow facial hair in some form.

They say grace to Amek after their meals, rather than before.

They make Bilachakáo (A traditional ball of pecan paste, sugar, and other spices) for dessert every winter.

It is actually very easy to tell, thanks to our cloning program. In a few decades time, everyone will literally look extremely similar (though not completely) like each other. However, there are specific traits acquired by growing up in the Pan-Asiatic States, such as:

  • Being a very sociable person, and being quite the rabblerouser at any given moment that politics is brought up in a conversation. Asians are generally ready to debate you at every waking moment.
  • Having said that, Asians are fiercely patriotic. Some even blatantly worship Communist leaders. Don't be surprised if an Asian acquaintance of yours suddenly kneels, bows, or prays to Communist books, artifacts, or statues.
  • Racism towards blondes, redheads, and pale people in general. Asians are almost always insensitive to race and class boundaries.
  • Prudism. Do not wear anything revealing around Asians, as it is considered a disrespectful manner to most Asian cultures, and the government actually promotes this mentality of conservatism.

Even if they are not trying to blend in as part of a sociological, anthropological or other scientific experiment it can be hard to spot a Sadakhan as we recruit worthy candidates from all over regardless of ethnicity or appearance. That said, a Sadakhan will often:
  • look down on outsiders as interesting biological specimens, or maybe an amusing pet. It's also a sort game for Sadakhan to try and insult foreigners behind a mask of benevolent geniality without them realizing it.
  • employ an extensive and obfuscatingly convoluted vocabulary. And profanity; A f***ing Goddam s***-ton of profanity.
  • be unconcerned with modesty or formality in dress, manners, or sexual situations outside of diplomatic functions.
  • be disrespectful, even contemptuous for authority; especially attempts to impose any sort of authority, and most especially if it is done by an outsider - even in their own country.
  • be adventuresome and enthusiastic about new cuisines and cultural activities.
  • be unconcerned with and unimpressed by gaudy or ostentatious displays of personal wealth. We sort of consider it a mark of mental unwellness.
  • generally dislike extremely cold weather or dry desert climates.
  • disapprove of combustion powered vehicles and power generation, or other forms of environmentally unfriendly heavy industry.

The average Imperial is told apart from his contemporaries... Not by much actually, aside from the differences in clothing (we don't wear western) we're not much different from any other peoples. The real test is telling which constitute kingdom an Imperial is from.

If the Decepticon isn't undercover:

- He's a giant sapient transforming war robot big enough to hold you in his hand!
- He can fly
- He'll probably be spotted at your refinery, raiding it
- He's got giant Decepticon Seals painted right on him!
- He'll be glad to expound on why you, as a biological, are inferior
- He may well be impatient with attempts to argue back, and prove his point by just squashing you flat.
- Telling him that an elephant or other large, non-genius animal can just squash things flat too, will definitely get you squashed flat so that the point becomes moot.
- If he's more intellectual, he'll be able to list at least a terabyte's worth of reasons Decepticons are the greatest lifeforms ever.
- He can install a college education in a matter of minutes.
- He'd usually rather go raid.

If he IS undercover, using an android body that looks like whatever species you are:

- He is ALWAYS up to SOMETHING. For him to be otherwise would be like a tiger willingly going vegan.
- He'll be completely unafraid of normally-dangerous things like being shot. This will make him seem ultra-brave, though the reality is just that he is made of bulletproof metal.
- When he gets into a fistfight, the other guy's face will probably end up pulverized with one punch. This will especially stand out because he probably won't be presenting a "bodybuilder" physique.
- He may be a very brazen criminal due to his invulnerability to small arms.
- He can drink infinite quantities of vodka and never get drunk. This, of course, is because it's just a form of fuel to him.
- He can do all of the drugs without losing sobriety. He will use this (and his drinking abilities) to get other people wasted out of their minds, and then mercilessly scam them.
- He'll never seem to be broke.
- He's always good for a bribe and will quickly find corrupt officials of note to buy favors from.
- He's arrogant. To add insult to injury, you won't be able to best him at whatever he's acting that way about.
- He may be mistaken for a liberal due to his disdain for racism. In reality, he just thinks you're ALL a bunch of inferior ants not worthy of further differentiation.
- Petroleum products tend to disappear when he's around.
- ATMs may "malfunction" in his presence.
- He's asexual, and attempts to flirt with him will go right over his head unless he has been trained to recognize them.
- He is insanely good at doing quantifiable, repetitive actions fast.
- He doesn't really seem to "get" the concept of laws in general, so will ignore them with the same utter lack of concern as a kindergartner despite actually being mature. This is simply because at home, there aren't any laws about the sorts of things he does, and if there were, nobody would enforce them anyway.
- He is quick to open fire on police who try to arrest him when the above leads him to blatantly do something illegal. This is because when our government DOES care about something you do, it sends a death squad. The idea of an arrest that does not lead to a foundry pit is entirely alien to a Decepticon, and so is the idea of going along with that without giving one's full armed resistance.
