    The real thing, of course, was Admiral Lord Nelson, a man who had no doubts about his enemy: "...down with the damned French villains. My blood boils at the name of a Frenchman. Down, down with the French. ... is my constant prayer." "Bonaparte has often made his boast that our fleet would be worn out by keeping the sea and that his was kept in order and increasing by staying in port; but know he finds, I fancy, if Emperors hear the truth, that his fleet suffers more in a night than ours in one year." "...you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil." The other great British hero of the time was the Duke of Wellington, who was known to his soldiers as 'The Bugger that beats the French', so often had he thrashed Bonaparte's army. Of course, we're all friends now.... [​IMG]

    Lovelace, actually. I believe Bernstein "borrowed", or was inspired by, the name from the film.

    I think the whole French hating thing is pretty ludicrous. At least they have a culture to speak of.

    Yes I certainly did. However if you look at where many of the finer things come from that the mostly US crowd here enjoy, they have their routes in France. They all love to be wine snobs and hedonistic, but for some funny reason they scoff at the very people who invented it.

    Are we scoffing at the culture who invented it or the people who surround that culture now. I love Paris, will be there for a nice holiday in a few months, but I do not necessarily love the people. Mind you I do not dislike then either, however, in the times I have spent in Paris (9) over the last 7 years, I will say that as much as I have tried to become accustomed to the culture in terms of being friendly with the people, many seem to resent me as an American. It does become discouraging, I try vehemently to speak the language, although I am not fluent by any means, I am courteous in all ways possible, trying not to attract myself as a tourist, but more as a person in what I would like to consider one day a second home in terms of places I like to visit on a short time. But, Parisians are not a very accepting society IMO of American culture, or people, I therefore find a certain rudeness in their mannerisms, not as though they are trying to be unkind, but a generalized way of being slightly unfriendly...as if to say "who do you think you are, you foolish American". There are good people and bad in both France and America, but the idea that we are scoffing a society and culture that brings us the things we love so much is over-stepping a bit. More tolerance from both sides of the spectrum would allow a better blending of minds when it comes to understanding both societies.

    For those who've never heard of this game, the trick to choosing your porn stagename is take the name of your first pet and place that with the name of the first street on which you lived... thus my porno name would be: Linus Hampton [​IMG] Anyone else - maybe this should be a new thread?
