"A little thick"? Coming from an american, a country where over half the population thinks the world is 6000 years old that is a bit rich.
We invented most of the world you currently live in, our problem is we then sell it on to other countries who claim credit for it.
drrisk2, the computer you typed that offensive comment about us - we invented that, the internet you posted that rude comment on - we invented that. Your welcome!
We are a country the size of Maryland, not a bad record for a "thick" people eh?
ps......you can ask George Washington and as he was a reasonably honest man he will educate you that when the colonies rebelled you needed the French and Dutch armies as well to defeat us. Go look it up.
