    why are people so defensive about their place of birth?
    they didnt choose to be born there so there is no need to be proud of where you live because its not as if you did anything to get there or invent any of this **** what matters is what you have done to improve your life and the lives of others whether they are within your community or otherwise.

    No offense, but who really cares? America sucks because of this and rules because of that. England sucks because of this and rules because of that. Japan... well you get the idea.

    Having spent 8 years in the military I've lived/traveled through over a dozen or so countries and each one had it's good points and it's bad.

    I'll admit I'm patriotic but that won't keep me from putting on blinders to the problems in my own country.

    Can't we all just get along?


    Sorry about that last line. I just had to!

    I think that the country bashing should be stopped and that the mods should do something about it.
    There are some real morons in this world please do not become one of them, do not become a victim of moronitis. PROGRAMMING IS THE FUTURE...THE FUTURE IS NOW!!!!!!!!!

    Left cprog on 1-3-2005. Don't know when I am coming back. Thanks to those who helped me over the years.

    Yes.
    It is entirely your fualt.
    You have finally got your revenge.
    If you own a piece of land and there is an volcano on it and it ruins a
    nearby town, do you have to pay for the property damage?

    country bashing is bull**** (unless its funny).
    to have "why america sucks","why europe sucks" is daft.......

    i just couldnt resist a go at the original line that i quoted, it amused me anyway.

    the reason european countries invented all of those things is because you were around alot longer than the U.S, about five times, really. And for all the time that you had you didn't invent very much. Our rate of invention is far superior to yours.

    What have you invented Xterria?

    You are not your country. There is no reason to be proud or defend it.

    hehe nice argument.........

    i ONLY picked inventions since 1800 onwards (apart from the water closet - 1778) !!!!!!!!! ie same timeframe, genious.

    5 times longer ???? europe was "created" in 1000 AD eh ??? mmmm

    for the record-
    most inventions (patents anyway) occurred after 1750 really, after the industrial revolution, and have been growing exponentially since.

    the USA has a great record inventions wise, even accounting for a large population and resources. so does Europe.

    i myself have invented bugger all

    I'd like to invent a cat flap that the bloody cat would use, instead of stood in front of it mowing plaintively until i get up and let the bugger in or out.

    why are cats always on the wrong side of a door ???

    in, out, in,out..................
