@Betajet: You mean like les anglais are still sore about that business in 1066? :-)
It was a lucky arrow shot. Plus, what we call the "Norman French" were originally a bunch of Vikings who happened to beat up un the existing French and settle down. We already had Vikings in England, so it was liek having a family reunion (everyone arguing with each other LOL)
1415??? We Americans (I'm just talking about the variety North of Mexico and South of Canada) have a considerably shorter memory span. In fact, remembering a historical event longer ago than ten or fifteen years is a stretch.
@Tobias: What I'm wondering again is, that you still don't deliver "personally" to France.
I'll tell you what -- in the spirit of good felowship -- if someone from France goes for the $10,000 GALACTIC MONTY COMBO WITH WHIPPED CREAM pledge level, I will personally fly their boards out to France and deliver them by hand. I can't say fairer than that :-)
What I'm wondering again is, that you still don't deliver "personally" to France. Maybe you watched way to much Monty Python, they won't through cows at you, believe me – or is it still that French Fries thing.
