Oooo... lovely, a nice fight.
Jelly, a Brit DID invent the language that the Internet is built on, just like you Americans use another langugae from England every single day... and you may have helped us win two wars (not beat us), but Britain actually won the last war we had with the USA, the war of 1812, when not only did we win, but we burned down parts of Washington including government buildings.
TR, you ever seen the film footage of the withdrawl from Vietnam?? Helicopters, embassy roof, running... that's called losing in the UK!!
And the attempt to free the hostages in Iran crashed and burned, not because of Jimmy Carter, but because it was badly planned and poorly executed.
Jan H, you know your history!!
openminded, if Britain invented boybands, as in a manufactured group of boys for the teen market, what in hell were the Monkees??
BSE (mad cow disease) is probably already in the US, due to feed imports before the bans. Mink fed meat from cows that have died from 'unknown' diseases have contracted a similar brain disease, and wild deer have a similar disease, and the prion that causes it is pretty damn good at jumping species barriers, so there's no reason it won't do it again.
And Americans can't spell. All those z's where s's should be, and missing u's, and er's instead of re's, and u's instead of ough's. Honestly, it's not that difficult if you tried a little harder.
And American Football is a boring version of Rugby Leauge, which in turn is a boring version of Rugby Union, which is played by really tough guys...
And in the 'States, during the Olympics, once all the Americans are knocked out of a sport you virtually stop covering it, which is kinda self-obsessed, although it's fair to point out if we did that in Britain there'd be virtually NO Olympic coverage at all!!
But all this pales into insignifigance when compared to the real reason why Britain rocks and the USA sucks.
George W Bush.
Do you realise the BBC have slashed their spending on comedy programmes, as the next four years are going to be richly amusing.
If you wanted a hereditary monarch back, you could have asked. We've got loads of self-serving stupid royals to spare. I guess with daddy Bush being George IV (or is it V, I can never remember which mad German was King when the US rebelled), George W is George V of the USA, and we can at least say we didn't choose our monarchy... you choose that klutz!!
I think that makes it UK 1000 USA 0, but if you want a second chance, how about a nice game of cricket?
WHAT HAVE YOU
got to live for
IF YOU HAVE NOTHING
you'd die for?
