oh ha ha pichubro you can't beat me
solly, i'm not backing up your incredibly wise and insightful claims. i didn't even read your post before i posted lol.
thats not in the least bit kawaii peach (i like that nick lol)
.. All I can say is, Australia didn't create Wikileaks, an AustraliaN did. And he should get a medal for revealing not just America's secrets but the worlds secrets.
That's all I'll say. I'll waste not with a troll.
Eh, it's alright man. Everyone has the right to their opinion, if he doesn't like my view thats fine and he has every right to have a go at me, doesn't mean I need to listen .
My teacher was Australian and she didnt speak Japanese. XD It was a waste of time.Learning Japanese isn't a waste of time~ 馬鹿っぽい。
If I actually met a Japanese person I'd love to learn it, but I'm learning Finnish at the moment and thats hard enough belive me.
I will respond to this, I didn't notice it before cause honestly I didn't read your post but. Most people I've met here are American, Pants for example, who is now a good friend and mentor, is American. And he's a very smart lad. Please if your going to argue, do it in a mature fashion and don't put words in my mouth.. Unless they're tasty words like Chocolate.. Mm..but definitely not the ignorant imbeciles you're constantly accusing them of being.
anyway, you WERE using over-generalized statements that seemed to employ us americans as greedy, ignorant, isolationists :/
and we* aren't.
our country does have problems, yes, but thats why we have a moderately fast-changing political system that swiftly switches from one side to another every few years. it keeps our people on their toes, and more interested in debates/politics in general. that includes global politics.
but regardless, you are a good friend blaze
*3/4's of us lol
Come get your damn Squirtle. :|
Off topic but I'm sick of Squirtles.
sadly, he hates everything on the wii because he hasn't played it
So what you are saying is that due to a very small island not having enough economic potential to simultaneously conquer and fund 2/3 of the world, means that they are economically sub-par. DO you realise that half of our money during this time was spent on semi-reparation of the places we had just taken over, and that the main reason our economic downturn was so poor was due to the mass training of people in areas in an attempt to make them at least self dependant.
The actual reason that the British Empire fell is that the standard of living of the people within it didn't rise to a satisfactory level because the state system was flooded out by the sheer quantity of the people it had and there was no feasible way of having any sense of control over the cultural differences that got in the way of the capital means that we tried to impose.
If it was due to our economy being "aweful" then we would have lost our empire and slumbered into the realms of poverty rather than staying at a height in economic power throughout the time after, even until the present. The only reason we got hit so hard by recession was due to to import led high standards of living that we attained from previously large export led growth in agriculture and steel manufacturing much earlier on to the countries that you would now consider to be "better than Britain" despite the fact that in a level playing field the only thing they were better at was adaptation. Thus the real reason we aren't still the biggest is due to the fact that we tried to foolishly hold on to tradition and high standards of living when it is clear in hindsight that we should actually have just let it go and re-allocate into future growth industry.
Consider that a brief lesson in the background to British history, if you have a counter argument, please try and spell it better than the first one.
