The French.

Possibly I'm over-generalising, but it always amazes me how much more knowledgeable, intelligent and apt at independent thinking the average French person is compared to most North Americans, Australians or Brits. Does it have anything to do with the country's philosophical traditions?

The film I'd been planning to see ('Old Boy') wasn't showing, but a fascinating conversation with a French gent over lunch more than made up for it.^^
