This is yet another conspiracy by the French to re-write history well after the fact.
They have never come to terms that WE THE BRITISH were the discoverers of the cosmos (okay, there was that chap, Galileo too) We had the largest empire, a lot of it stolen from them:D and we have the worlds most important language.
GET OVER IT!:p

Cosmos like in cosmopolitan, i.e. cocktails? I thought those were invented by the chicks in Sex and the City? ;)

you forgot two other important things about the british - bad teeth and incomprehensible accents LOL

In anticipation of being flamed to death yours truly, miciolo

Kakrout, I have to warn you that as a resident of Kent, I am in a position to go over and steal half of Calais. ;-) (Perhaps not the town hall clock, which is an architectural abomination..... ) - we British used to own half of France, I'll have you know, Sir ! Careful, the gunboat is waiting...... ;-)

Calais was ours and so was Bordeaux. Only that salop Jean D'Arc stopped us from having a lot more!:p

The British Invaders - Alien beings from a dying country
Their destination : France
Their purpose : To make it their world
Kak has seen them -
For him it began one lost night on a lonely country road, looking for a short-cut that he never found.
It began with a closed deserted diner ...
... and a man too long without sleep to continue his journey.
It began with the arriving of a car from another galaxy
Now, Kak knows that the Invaders are here,
That they have taken human form.

Somehow he must convince a disbelieving world that the nightmare has already begun.
:p ;)

FYI: "Bush Ho." has nothing to do either with the current Prez* or with London tarts.

It's correctly called "Bush House," and is the headquarters of the BBC.


*Though the Bush in question here might be some sort of a very, very distant relative of his....
