    I overheard a conversation between a couple of Historians at our University a few years back, all about the American war of independance that I will never forget.
    The general theme from the one guy was that the British forces had won almost all of the battles but that Cornwallis lost the big confrontation.
    He was being really pompus about the whole thing.

    Another Professor who hadn't contributed until then pointed out that it doesn't matter who wins the heats as long as you win the final.

    Enjoy your Independance day festivities - the British are definitely not coming back; taking one ass kicking per millenium is more than enough for us thank you very much!

    curtains in disgust at the flashing glare.



    ...

    But yes, hope our USA members have a nice and safe day.
