    I'm pretty sure Galileo trumps Descartes.

    There would be no USA without France.

    No. That's not what I said. Descartes is important. Galileo is slightly more important, though.

    I actually prefer Germans over Brits.
    Not by much, though.

    German tech & foods tend to be better.

    Besides, Some German are much more Nationalist than Brits.

    East Germany & Austria are more Nationalist than any British country,even the USA.

    German contributions are extremely narrow, pertaining to music, brewing, and engineering. Britain's contributions are extremely broad and felt in just about every context of life. You can physically live in a former colony, and be living better than people in the UK, which cannot be said of any other ex-colonies (like Haiti).

    I disagree.
    I think Germans are more Intellectually well rounded than Brits.

    It's not just an English country.
    In fact
    Considering Appalachia & USA presidents are mostly British.

    I don't think much of them.

    They are fcked up dullards if you ask me.

    The real intellectual engine in America comes from.largely non British ethics

    An awful lot came from Eastern Europe of different faiths be it Jews, Catholics, Othodox Christians, or Lutherans.

    Have you even dealt with British people online!?

    80% of them behave like Dutch Uncle, they are incredibly obnoxious, arrogant, ignorant trolls.

    Other European ethics aren't like them at all.

    I tend to believe Americans are better from mixing with other Euro ethics.

    I deal with Tom all the time here on JPP, and he's perfectly fine. Of course, there is Iola the Taffy, but, I try not to hold him against Britain, and Wales, in particular.
