1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I don't think I believe any of those numbers, they are awfully low. Theres no way korea has an average of 3.7, I definitely don't believe that. The rest of the numbers are pretty sketch also.

    France is la premiere in many categories:
    food
    beautiful countryside
    xenophobia
    cowardice and accommodationism

    to name a few.

    I think he's got it. After all, France does have some of the largest pr*#cks.

    I'm starting to wonder if it's in everyone's best interest for Ernest's English to improve.

    I always thought I was 1/2 Austrian and 1/2 Belarus. I now suddenly realize that I must be of Korean ancestry.

    Some of the responses to this post shows another reason why so many Americans hate the French so much; they feel that they are inferior in yet another way.
    My friend John is reading a terrible book; an expose' about how much the French supposedly hate the USA. It is really a stupid book.
    In 20+ trips to France I have never encountered any anti-USA sentiment. Here, I encounter anti-French sentiment all the time. The French government (Ministry of Culture) dislikes American pop culture: music, fast food, SUVs, most films and television, etc., but so do many thoughtful Americans.

    Rubbish. Â If anything, it's an overweening sense of superiority to the French. Â [​IMG]

    I do remember reading an article years ago saying that the "big three" of Hollywood were Liam Neeson, James Woods and Willem Defoe. I am not sure who provided the info. Maybe it was Julia Roberts. The article also said, however, that the best endowed of all time was Milton Berle. This is not the exact article that I remember, but it is also on the subject matter: http://www.bostonphoenix.com/archive....NT.html I note that none of the names mentioned therein seem French.

    Mais non. We all know about France's cutting-edge (yikes) developments in prosthetic penology [sic]...

    Oh... dear god... no... I propose that ernest be given special indulgence to post a "full frontal" (no blurring out the face now ernest) on the "What are you wearing now?" thread. I am sincerely hoping for flaccid rather than erect...

    I can add a funny story to this. One time in the shower, a guy who was a Physics teacher said to me that I didn't have much down there. I came right back and told him that I have a high "coefficient of expansion." [​IMG]
