Well, it occurs to me, that right now, the US has gone at it alone on a problematic war, and as a result, is pretty much universally disliked. Even I feel myself preparing snarky comments to use about other countries, as their names come up, and I was against the war from the start. For fuck’s sake, people are spouting out “fact” about how evil France is, while ignoring the fact that they were big supporters of our in the Revolutionary war, gave us the statue of Liberty, that Arc d’ Triumph looking thing in Brooklyn, and, u…. Lots of stuff. Mustard, maybe?
Anyway, I was just wondering about both fictional, and real examples of some pretty damn cool people, and what countries they come from. For example, the Avatar of Manliness, James Bond is an Englishman, land of fag* filled boarding schools, and Steak & Kidney pie.
Also, France has so freaking many famous fencing masters, and Germany has…… Um…. Well, they had a superhero, at least until an lifeforce-energy Vampire killed him. “Really, who ever heard of a German superhero?”, he said, just before he killed him. Heh.
*not quite the term you might think it is, fag refers to the use of younger children as unpaid servent to upperclassmen in those horrible schools. Part of the social system, or something.
P.S. Doctor Who was created by British people, played by citizens of Briton, and so on, but he is not British, in my book. He is an entirely alien being, from the planet Gallifrey.
