    Having been recently in Paris, I found a suburban emptiness back in the States. Walking through elegant parks, and getting used to people actually being skinny and eating with health in mind was beautiful. The ridiculous thing is how Americans find it very easy to insult a country with thousands years of history. Contrary, to the extermination of Native Americans, Decleration of Independance, and...wait thats where it ends, France possesses a long intruiging history. The U.S (of course generalizing) is predominantly populated by individuals whose weight is a frightening thing and also being totally ignorant about other nations. Worst, an American will tell you he is proud of this ignorance. So, letting recent international choices for war or no war aside, how can we permit ourselves to insult a country whose citizens would laugh at our high level of uneducation and obesity. The problem is here folks! Americans spend an extremely high amount of time glued to the telivision, secluding themselves in their suburban houses. The French have something like 6 national channels. They do something called "social interaction" in public places such as cafes and parks. Parks in the U.S can be seen with people running, rollerblading, anything to loose weight... all to be put back shortly. I'm sorry I can't expand more on this, but please share your comments.

    Being an ignorant American, what can I say, but, "The French blow goats!"

    What the f does this mean? :cuckoo:

    So, all French are thin? Don't think so! All Americans are fat? Don't think so! :shocked:
    Considering their 'long history' one would think they would be brighter than Chirac. Considering US relatative youth, one would think they might not be so savvy, but they are! :beer:

    Intriguing in the sense of the guillotine? Or your inabilibility to spell 'Declaration?'

    Sorry, can't offer commentary, other than 'worst' should be worse', in context, as the poster's intentions are not clear. Kind of weird that he seems to be formulating an argument that if they 'laugh' at us, we should cower? I'm lost. So is he. :tinfoil:

    Hmmm, snails are great and there is nothing like liver from a goose that has been forced fed until his liver is about 3 pounds or 40 percent of its entire weight. There is some culture for you.

    Got to go, no time to ride my bike Friends is on tv. :rolleyes:
