    1. And which country is currently the superpower of the world?

    2. The only thing America is missing is Darwin on our money. I’m seriously getting sick of having God on my cash.

    3. I’ve always wondered why North America puts all of its weight on “God” for most of its crap if it calls itself the greatest nation in the world.

      There’s obviously something wrong with that.

    4. The only reason the US is the superpower in the world is because we spend 45% of the world’s defense spending. Britain figured out after WWII that they could live just fine using the US to protect themselves.

      And at the rate the American Empire is collapsing, it won’t matter anyway. Britain’s empire lasted for many centuries, ours will barely last 100.

    9. I find real irony in the fact that Britain has a monarch “by the Grace of God”, and has Darwin on their bill, while we, with our much vaunted separation of Church and State, have “In god we trust” on every piece of currency we produce.

    13. 1) The head of the United Kingdom is also, technically, head of the Anglican church.

      2) Several top Anglican Bishops sit on the house of Lord, which still exercises vestigial powers I’ll remind you.

      3) GOD save the Queen is your anthem.

    18. So, England’s monarch is ‘by the grace of God’ and there are Anglican bishops sitting in the House of Lords.
      On the other hand, the leader of ‘teh supapowa in da world’ is a religious nutjob who claims to hear imperative voices and i bet his successor won’t be any better (maybe without the voices but who knows); while a lot of politicians do politics by ‘christian standards’.
      So what’s the point anyway.

    21. Britain is more secular than USA, by a long-shot. End of story. And USA would never, ever have Darwin on their currency since most of the idiots over there think he is the devil himself.

      The fact that GB has a state church seems to be one of the reasons that so few people are head over heels in love with religion in Britain.

      The currency illustrates a great point: Britain take pride in Darwin, USA (as a whole) takes pride in believing in things without a shred of evidence.

    30. Children, Children, please! Stop with the fighting, and cock waving competition. I’m English, and i can see the flaws in my own country. I do not like that fact that we still have an aristocracy, full of inbred, biggoted morons.

      However, I am also very proud to live here, in a country with it’s wealth of history, literature and social uniqueness. I am soon going to be going to one of the best Univeristies in the country, to learn from some brilliant professors in the field of Biochemistry. I can do that because the government of this country pays for nearly all of my fees and costs.

      This country takes care of everyone, makes sure everyone is treated well. From what i’ve seen of the USA, money is all important and all consuming. That’s why i would much rather live here, rather than the US.

      Also, we had a gaint Empire, and eventually, we’ll have one again. The USA will be just anouther territory. BWHAHAHAHA!

      I doubt that YOU won the Revolutionary War. Just like I am not responsible for WWII. You shouldn’t be BIRGing so much because the fact that the Americans won the Revolutionary War over 200 years ago doesn’t make anybody today less an idiot. In fact, i think it makes a lot of people even more stuck up.

      And before you go out on a tangent about me being immature, that is something I confess openly.

      As far as winning the revolutionary war, we = the country that I currently live in. I didn’t mean I personally took up arms to overthrough the English. Actaully my family was still starving in Ireland at that time(a entrely differant story).
      The United States government is far from perfect. I will not stand here an say we are without fault. Believe me, I disagree with a lot of what our leaders have done. Personally I think we are overdue for a new revolution. Our country has strayed far from what our founding fathers had envisioned. It is no longer the same United States that was great. We are a bankrupt nation of debtors. This country is run by and for the extremely rich and powerful. The peoples representation is all but gone.
      I personally think that the British people are good people for the most part. I am just not a fan of things The British Empire has done in the name of progress. I don’t dislike the people of Britain. As a matter of fact I highly respect them and their culture and contribution to the civilized world.

      The argument, sir, is that you need to just enjoy the site instead of constantly picking flamewars that serve no purpose.

      “How about you make me shut up” I’m not even touching the grade level of that statement, but furthermore it’s not really possible considering my moral and practical abilities.

      Not to mention egotistical jerks never much inspired much respect from me (ed note: see “respect your betters” argument for detail)

      quit tending to your ego/e-penis and have some fun. I’d say why so serious, but your comments have angered me such that it’d be hypocritical.

      I don’t know why you think you have any kind of moral authority, but to me you are just another guy trying to look good in front of his friends (I assume now that you are not as new around here as I am).

      But I am all for that, polish that armor to a shine and stand up, firm and strong against the mean bully that has come to destroy your quiet little part of the Internet. I am sure you get something out of it, as I will.

      There is nothing wrong with having an ego, although I guess someone with less brains and beauty than others skulk around the net hunched over. But I won’t, and some harsh words from another shining knight on the web will only convince me I am doing this place a service.

      So lighten up and use more lube next time you try to remove that stick. I bet we could be the best of friends.

      Oh, and I am having fun.

      I said you shouldn’t waste your time on pointless arguments (such as this, I’m now sure)

      I said I LACKED the moral ability to, ah, “make you” shut up.

      I’m a loser with no girlfriend who cries himself to sleep every night. Now that my word stands true with your perceptions, we can move on and assume I can’t impress anyone (doing so on the internet is a waste anyways)

      I didn’t say having an ego was wrong, everybody’s got it. using stupid arguments as reasons to stroke your own I do consider wrong.

      “lighten up” is exactly what I hope to do on this site, but constant bitter and worthless flamewars do little to help. I was in debate in high school (GOD I’M COOL) so I feel drawn to argument and the flaws present in them. So I get into this.

      I love discussing with people that has been on the debate team, they seem to think that the same rules apply on the Internet, which makes them too easy targets, most of the time. The fun thing is that they enter the argument thinking they have the upper hand.

      Korinthian:

      Actually, if people realized Allah = God then having that on their money wouldn’t cause much of a stink (beyond it being not in english, despite having no “official language” in america :P)

      However, most people don’t realize beyond spelling, technically we could call God(/Yahweh/Flying Spagetti Monster/whatever) Allah and it’d be cool. The real problem is the ignorance of at least enough of the population to instantly yell TERRORISM. I won’t go into the (alleged) ties between Islam and terrorism, but enough would assume them to cause a helluva stink.

Let’s think about this, without the Brits, the US wouldn’t be what it is today, the US language is an abomination of the English language, you wiped out the American Indians and placed them on shitty reservations, adding to that is the fact that typical US students aren’t taught about what happened to the American Indians.
      And don’t even start the argument about which is more secular because Christianity has the most paigan links out of all the monotheistic religions.
      England certainly has its problems, such as a crap Prime Minister, but at least we are allowed to know about our country’s problems without having the police on our doorstep.

      Also American students DO learn quite a but about what America did to the Native Americans. The teachers go over it in Junior High and High School. In college they dive even deeper.

      As for America making a mess out of English. The language is a mess anyhow. One of the toughest to learn and for good reason.

    70. @Dreth: No they don’t, not really. English is a different kind of language. We let it go, other languages are much more strict about usage. The only other language that I know of offhand w/ that flexibility is Latin. It has a lot to do w/ grammar and how much you can play around w/ it.

      Reply

    71. I’m not calling you stupid or anything, you may be right for all I know.

      But I reaaally doubt you’ve studied all the languages in the world, and all their small variations. A foreigner that does not have english as his/her primary language will not know of all the “flexibility” within it.

      You may have the idea that the spanish-language is rigid with its meanings, and spanish-speaking people will think like you (except vice-versa) and believe THEIR language is the most flexible one.

      Reply

    72. @Dreth: I understand what you’re saying and of course, every language has it level of nuances. What I’m talking about is really grammar and how you can play w/ it. The Latin and Teutonic languages grammar don’t really have the ability to be moved around to change meanings. Most languages can’t be put backwards. It’s extremely rare. I don’t actually know that much about the Asian languages and they may, but from what I have seen they tend to play w/ numbers rather than language. For the very reason that we “bastardize” our language is what also makes it possible to have palindromes, homonyms and especially synonyms. There’s not another language that has synonyms like we do (amount of synonyms). Many of our nouns, adjectives and even verbs have dozens of synonyms. Is there another language where 1 person doubled the vocabulary? An English dictionary can have as many as 750,000 words and that does not include scientific names. No other language comes close. There are objective reasons for my point and it’s not just our language is best crap. Puulaahi said English is the hardest language for a foreigner to learn. That’s true precisely for the reasons I’ve stated.

      Reply

    73. Is it true that it has many *many* synonyms, but you miss that English is mainly “shared” and it shares the same meanings in most places that it’s used in.

      For example, the american english has a only few slight differences from british version, besides pronounciation.

      In spanish, with each and every place you visit, you get all kinds of different meanings for the same words depending on the region. For example, in Dominican Republic they call cold beers ceniza, and the real meaning of the word itself is ash or ashes. Also, spanish has different words for female and male subjects (el, ella, perro, perra), which the english language lacks.

      So while english may be considered the largest in terms of quantity, (giving it a great advantage) it doesn’t mean it has the most variety in terms of use.

      Anyway I’m running an uphill battle here, and it’s late so I give up.

      But I’d like to say english is pretty easy to learn, getting used to the lingo found in everyday conversations takes some getting used to. But then again, that comes with EVERY language.

      Reply

    74. @Dreth: You may be right. So, I’ll say speaskers, writers and users of all kind of the English language just love to play w/ words (and usage) in a way I’ve never seen in any other language (and I have some xp w/ the various European languages).
