It is unamerican to be anti-French.  America is most of the best parts of France and Britain, merged together into something entirely unique.
What you say is untrue, but it should be true.  France and the US are probably more alike in the fundamentals of national character than Britain and the US.
The future is all around us, waiting, in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation. No one knows the shape of that future or where it will take us. We know only that it is always born in pain.   -G'Kar

I don't think Grumbler has any DVD's. 8mm reels and a Edison phonograph, maybe.

His wax cylinders melted in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, though. :weep:

Grumbler, I think you overestimate the effect your posts (or anybody's posts for that matter) have on people. Nobody is really getting riled up or crying or whatever. It's just a message board.  :mellow:

Do you really think folks are affected in their daily lives by what some random guy is writing on the internet? We're just shooting the shit here.

Anyways. If you want to claim that I "reliably bursts into tears when you countertroll" ( :cool:) so that you can score internet points, that's fine by me.  It takes a lot to get me angry in real life, I imagine it would take even more on the interwebz.

Maybe this has to do with that "avatar" thread a few weeks back. I didn't really understand or care about the concept. :shrug:

Are you sure you're not confusing America with Canada?   :hmm:

I'd have thought that British and French Canadians haven't really merged yet.

Ah yes. When you merge British chav culture and belligerence with French snooty arrogance, great things are bound to happen that will upset no one.

  :lol:  If you play the 8mm film synchronized to the phonograph player, it's almost like being at the talkies!
