Hi Everyone
If Hollywood has taught us nothing else (and it hasn't) it is that all the world's greatest villians are English, if all of you out there whether American, Indian, Pakistani, Russian or possibly even Canadian could come together and embrace the one true enemy, the Brits, the world would be a better place. And as an added bonus we're far to reserved and polite to say or do anything about it.
Then JavaRanch could get back to being the best Java site on the web and leave the insults and abuse to the less interesting and less well informed site's on the web
P.S Hey Faisal what's happening with my mail order donkeys? I've got a lot of angry Welsh men at this end

Yes, but...
You gave us James Bond, which is NOT a villain but works sometimes with Felix Leiter of the CIA, the other good guys, in the war against terrorism!
Nice try, though

We shall never forget the attrocities visited upon us by the tyrannical King George III and the occupying imperialist forces in the 1700's! Nor shall we forgive the provocations leading to the War of 1812 such as the enslavement of over 10,000 American citizens forced to serve on British ships! Hah, and you thought we forgot about that one!
Remember the Boston Massacre!

And that dish called 'Toad in the Hole'!
Eating toads is barbaric! How can they do such beastly things? Not me personally of course, I'd never eat toads. Frogs legs? of course. Snails? mais oui, magnifique...

The English?
I usually see a line of blue coats and behind them the red ones.
Seem like just recently some one jumped in front of ya'll.

Jane I went to the Banff (Rockies) here in Alberta and I went up to the glaciers in search for some donkeys but I couldnt find any. I found some packrats if you want those
