Yeah a lot of American kids sadly think of Germany as Nazi land. I don't, but many others do. And a lot of kids are obsessed with violence.

They used to think the streets were "paved with gold" metaphorically. But I think that line of thinking is pretty archaic.

Well, I used to live in South Korea, so I can answer this. But what do you mean by myths? Like Stereotypes? Or say, things like the Jersey Devil?

A few American stereotypes I've heard are stupid, obese and that they don't realize that anything beyond their country exists and a stereotype for american teenage girls would be (I think) called a valley girl. I never personally believed any of these myself, they're just some of the ones that I've heard of.

Yeah i hear that a lot to. I've met a lot of obese people though, but not everybody is. I'm scrawny myself.

All American Guys are a composite of John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Chuck Norris, & Sylvester Stallone. And we all own guns. Lots of guns.
All American Girls are "easy".
