    How can England want to be like America considering they existed many years before them, and that Americans are made up of many Irish and English settlers :S

    Are the British Isles connected to the Eurasion plate?

    Europe and Asia are on the same continental plate, why don't they have the same name? :p

    Europe and Asia are geo-political areas. England is only part of Europe politcially :p

    How it's possible that England becomes America? (I'm exagarating of course) Things change, Met lol. It's kinda in the sense of the Son becomes the Father.

    I live in Europe.Actually in the place where 3 continents join.Europe,Asia and Africa.It used to be a great country for about 5,000 years.Then the Turks came.Now we're just eating mousaka and tzatziki,we play tavli and drink ouzo and say malaka all the time.But American culture has been making us "modern" the last 50 years.We happy,you what?

    I read in Wikipedia that they didn't have kilts back then and they weren't supposed to be as the Scots in the movie wore them!Lol!:p

    And that the son of Edward Longshanks wasn't gay and that Wallace definetely didn't have sex with the princess!

    Right on every count, it was just sickeningly bad, but I hate to say it, a lot of Scots loved it. People shouting 'Freeeedom!', all the time, to which my response was usually 'F*** Oooooff!'.
    Bloody Saint Gibbo or whatever he likes to be called....

    I think I'm one of the few people who didn't cry in that scene.Everybody tells me they cry in that scene.And I'm tired of seeing the British being the evil ones in all the movies!Braveheart,Joan of Arc,The Patriot,The Jungle Book....oh come on!

    Oh I cried during Braveheart, but not for the reasons of everyone else, I just was tormented of all the interesting things I could've been doing instead of watching that damn film, like watching paint dry or pulling out my hair lol

    No knocking Nelson at all

    But sometimes even he seems to give off the vibe "I know, now get over it" :D
