Yeah, that's right. I reiterate : France sucks.
Reason of the rant : "Cut Here", the Cure's brand new single was released officially yesterday and no fucking record store in this shitty country had it. :mad: France is always too late in everything, the good records, videogames and movies are never released here, or so confidentially that it's all worthless. The music scene here is motly shit, this country is ridiculous at political level (we have only one big aircraft carrier and its runway was built too short, where else in the world would you see that ?), the majority of people act like silly sheep and I'm pissed to think that this is my country.

Done, I feel better :)

I must say I quite like France, except for a couple of things.

1. French Customs - we went there for a day trip from Newhavem to Dieppe this weekend, and both when entering and leaving the country the French searched my car. They refused to accept I wasn't an international drug smuggler :eek:

2. French Drivers - is using a roundabout really that difficult? They pull out in front of you and do stupid things like drive all the way round in the outside lane :rolleyes:

Spent quite a bit of time driving trucks across France, always had a good time. The French like les camions, they give you a discount in the restraunts, even on the service areas. The roads are mostly beautiful and empty, no comparison with England, the drivers are no problem, no one messes with a truck. But the customs can be real sods I agree.
Don't think the people are any less stupid than anywhere else, get out and about on this planet and the thing that strikes you most is how similar people are. You can have a good time anywhere given enough wine. :)

Yeah, I do like driving there, it's just that my little Twingo seems very little compared with the nutters in the towns!

Although, for anyone that's ever driven down the Mile End Road, I bet they'll agree that is equally daunting!

I have to agree about the people - they're a wonderful, friendly crowd (well, in the country anyway). They accepted us holidaying folks and even let us join in their petanque games etc.

You think France sucks? I live in the Canadian province of Québec. You should see how stupid the french people are here!

I can think of one stupid thing right off the bat - nearly half the fucking cities and streets here are named after saints!

England is a much nicer country. If you have ever walked through an isolated English woodland in high summer, with the sunlight flitting between the oak branches, and sat in a clearing with the lush grass curled about your knees, then you have seen England at its best.

I know this feeling personally, and i love it :D

There's many things about the English countryside that are lovely, particularly in the summer.

A favorite of mine is driving down the country lanes at night when there's a full moon (and not just to avoid the police after having been to the pub...:D )

But then again, at least France has nice weather (well, the southern part...)

Just to give you an idea of how stupid the french people are here...
French people are something like 95% of Quebec's population. More than half the people here never signal lane changes, or even turns unless it's a 4-way intersection.

Once a guy nearly ran over my heels when I was crossing the street totally legally. So I gave him the finger, for which he started yelling at me. I told him to take drivers' ed and to actually listen the next time around and he acted as if he didn't even hear me (damn arrogant uneducated frenchies).

This story's from my father:
Some guy was driving a gardening truck with a trailer in front of him... neither the taillights on the truck or on the trailer were working at all. He was going rather slow so my father passed him. At the next light or something, the guy rolled down his window and yelled at my father about the illegality of passing when the line on the road is solid white. My father mentioned the fact that the guy's lights weren't working at all and he acted as if there was nothing wrong with never being able to signal anything or for anybody to know when you're stopping :p

I feel that a worse crime than not signalling has to be middle lane drivers! The rules in the US are probably different, but in most of Europe the driver should always pull back into the nearside lane when they've finished overtaking slower vehicles.

The amount of (usually old) people who can't be bothered with this is staggering. Most distressing and all :rolleyes:

God came back to Heaven after six long days of work. Gabriel had been wondering where his boss had been all this time and went over to ask him.
“I have created a world” he replied. “It is a beautiful thing, and I intend it to be a place of very great balance.”
“What do you mean?” Gabriel asked.
“Look,” said God. “It’s cold at the poles, and hot in the middle. There are very dry places called deserts, and very wet places called seas. There are people who are black, and there are people who are white. Everything is perfectly in balance, exactly as I intended it to be.”
“Ah,” said Gabriel. “but what is that small place just over there? It looks lovely!”
“That is Wales,” replied God. “It is a land of beautiful mountains and fertile lands. The people are kind, generous, and loving to their fellows, and yet also fearless fighters. They are passionate and committed in everything they set their minds to. They are inventors, artisans, and poets. Their wisdom and perspicacity will be a beacon to all, and they are considerate lovers of immense stamina and inventiveness.”
Gabriel looked puzzled.
“That doesn’t sound very balanced,” he said. “Wales sounds like the perfect place to be!”
God smiled enigmatically. “Wait until you see the bastards I’m putting next to them!”
:p :p :p

hmm, English beer is mankey flat warm ales - to be avoided at all costs. The trouble is, the lager isn't too much better; nowhere near as good as continental stuff
