Why did Fermi think this about us? Because Hollywood's dream factories were mostly built by Hungarian producers, and their Hungarian staff? Did he refer to the famous Hungarian scientists, movie stars, artists, writers and musicians? Perhaps because Bela Bartók's music in his own time was considered extra-terrestrial by many? Did he considered the Hungarian cuisine as well? Did he characterised the Hungarian language, which does not really resemble any language sounds so strange?
Perhaps, he actually summarized all his knowledge about the culture of Attila's nation.
