I think he meant the other part.
Now that you mentioned it,i don't remember hearing anything about French metal bands,although I can't say I'm a real expert in metal music but still...what I know is that France has very good hip-hop and romantic music
I'm glad to see England is winning...
Heres one for you.....champagne.
An english invention
Lol, have you been watching old episodes of Qi, Cru?
To add; England has Stephen Fry.....nuff said
That one I concur with .
pfft! we have a better health system... we live longer... we have a hotter (better) climate... we have nicer bread, nicer wine, nicer women... our art is better (yes, we can draw better! )... we are more fashionable... we invented the hot air balloon... tour de france people!!! we play better football... we can restrain ourselves from going to war... our tourism industry is bigger (that says something!!!)...
im too tired to continue...
oh, and where would you be without your 'french' kiss or 'french' fries??? j/k
Skipping through the parts that I genuinely don't know, being an ocean away, nicer food stuffs and women are completely relative, and honestly, I've seen some nasty wenches from both countries. Art is another relative thing, and if we're talking about skill in aeronautics then I guess the U.S. wins that one, having invented the plane and all. The Tour de France is only notable if you actually care about cycling, which if England did they'd have made their own crazy long endurance test for it. The football I don't know since I don't pay attention to that sort of thing, and as for the war thing, if I'd been a whipping boy in my last three big ones I'd restrain myself too. Now for the tourism thing, it sure is hard to believe that a country with a larger geographic size that's generally nice all over would get more tourism than a rather small one, oh, wait, no, that's just logic.
Both countries were the biggest colonial powers of the world competing in who would get more slaves and who would occupy more lands and meddle into other people's affairs.Bloody bastards!Lol!
Hotter climates arent better, thats an entirely subjective statement.
Bread is also subjective, and I think we've covered that plenty enough.
Wine, so? we have ale and cider and yes, there are ranges enough for a connisuer.
art, subjective but I would disagree.
Fashionable, *BUZZ* wrong, britain unless you didnt know is the leading edge is modern fashion, france is only famous for the over the top extravagant branding.
hot air balloon? wow, because those are SO popular.....George Cayley, father of modern aviation, every aircraft in history is based on his research and he was.........english
Tour de frace? Sorry I dont care
Football? England pretty much defined the modern version of football, and since when were you better? never thats when.
Retrain yourself? cower in fear more like.
french fries are actually belgian you know. But i'll take nice thick cut chips myself, as for kissing, yeah that OBVIOUSLY wouldnt be around without france, *sarcasm* its nothing more that common wording.
Skipping to the important one...
Never? I'm guessing that's why England hasn't been ranked higher than France since 1998? http://www.fifa.com/worldfootball/r...ENG&t2=FRA&t3=&t4=&fm=8&fy=1993&tm=10&ty=2007
dont you mean 2005
Oops... still they've only been higher for one month in the past nine years so France is still better overall.
Rarg! its a FIFA conspiracy!
I would have to go with England because of their history. And the fact that I have never heard of a French empire.
Good post,good post!
