The internet is basically a bigger version of the ARPANET which was made by (D)ARPA, a US defense company. It used TCP/IP packet switching and networks, it is effectively the internet. There was research into TCP/IP going on in the UK but they didnt get it working with a network until after the americans helped them. Tim Berners lee did invent the world wide web, but in CERN (France) and it is basically just a markup on a system already invented by IBM in America (IBM Markup Language). So realistically the US did invent the internet.

TBH Britain likes to claim it invented loads of crap it barely had a part of, and simultaneously ignores investing in its own science and research industry, makes sense right

We're racist, but the majority of us are poor, working-class cunts who are more down to Earth than probably everyone you know.

1. - Some of us do. Health care being available free or subsidised nationally helps - but some of us still don't understand the concept of BRUSHING and FLOSS.
2. - No more than anywhere else in the world - massive differences not to mention different strokes for different folks. There are naturally some really ugly buggers here, but just as likely to find some really cute or outright beautiful girls depending on your tastes.
3. - LOL. We drink the same things everyone else drinks, by and large. We have a history of PROPERLY brewed "real" beer, as well as cider but these are losing popularity with the advent of (what I like to think of as cheap-sh..-euro-beer) light mass-produced lagers which taste of little but have a high ABV to get you drunk easily.
4. - Naturally some of us are. Some of us really need their respective heads removing from their respective posteriors. But there are plenty fun and pleasant people here - I like to consider myself one. I am the first person to admit I'm not perfect, and if there's a joke to be had at my expense I'll beat you to it almost every time. That said, not everyone's like that - I know quite a few!
5. REALLY BAD, bland food. - Again, some is. The "Roast Dinner". I love them because I grew up with them but they are pretty much just raw ingredients with very little done to them with regards to flavouring before cooking. I don't like bland food - I'm White British but I was bought up with the philosophy on food that you can't dislike it until you've tried it and I eat damn near anything. Curries, fish soups, any cuisine from any culture I'm willing to give a bloody good try. I love curries...for breakfast or any other time of day. I want to sample more Japanese cuisine...but then again I want to try more of juuust about everything! Gives me more ideas for my cooking.
6. - As with all drinks, some are better served at or just below room temperature. Some bitters and real ales benefit from this, as does most red and even some white wine. But again, its personal preference! I couldn't imagine anything worse than an ambient pint of bitter, but I don't want it icy cold so I can't taste the whole beer?! It'd be a waste of good brewing.
Cold cider though? mmmmm!
7. - Alcoholism (and indeed drug abuse) are a trouble no matter where you are. The popular Pub and Resturant chain J.D Wetherspoon (a little bit like starbucks, except good value and decent quality is their MO...not overpriced and SSDD) seem to be single-handedly allowing the lower classes to drink on a budget, but to say that we're all alcoholics is a bit unfair. And unjustified.
8. - Bullsh... Sorry, but anyone who thinks that because we limit the ownership of guns that crime has magically disappeared needs to get themselves to google and actually have a look around. 1) Anyone can own a gun pending a CRB check (background check..."Are you crazy or a ciminal or both") and DO you have a legitimate reason to own said fire-arm. Automatics and high-calibre rifles are very heavily restricted for obvious reasons, where as shotguns are less so - you still have to be a member or previous member of a shooting club or other organisation to own the weapons. Or be a legitimate collector. Or a farmer. Also...shotguns with a pump-action are limited to the number of shells they can carry to about 3 (1+2) since the 80's? (Someone care to correct me/quote me an exact date?)
9. - Nope. Its a damn sight better than some countries in Europe, but because of the crap border control measures and the fact that nobody is denied free emergency healthcare EVER, Healthcare Tourism literally exists for us - they get on planes pregnant, or diseased in need of serious work done, come over here, get it done and leave again without ever once contributing to the country or indeed the medical bill. Sure, we pay a higher rate of tax so that the NHS is funded this way, but the irony is that those paying tax are regularly being denied life-saving or life-lengthening operations or drugs because of such bull as being in the wrong postcode (healthcare organisation is split up a bit like states in a country...and probably run just as corrupt XD)...yet people can get sex-change surgery and what not on the NHS at the cost of taxpayers. The whole system is gradually tearing itself apart thanks to our wonderful POLITICIANS.
10. - Sadly, its as easy as being able to sign your name to get Welfare and Benefit in this country. I'm not kidding - you don't even need to speak or write our language, we'll happily translate all of our benefit forms into YOUR language for you, and then never expect you to work a day if you don't want to. We'll give you a council-funded house usually freshly renovated or in beautiful condition and pay for that too. That goes for our own, too, don't get me wrong but anyone can get on Benefit if they're lazy enough.
I hate it. I hate that its so easy and I hate that people on benefit actually earn a better living and have a better quality of life than me, who works 9-13 hours a day, 6-7 days a week, STILL lives in a flat with his little sister because he can't afford to live alone this close to work (can't run a car on these wages, that's for sure!) and yet there are people perfectly capable of work, GENERATIONS of the same families who choose not to because they simply can't be bothered.
Can you tell its a sore spot? If I lived like that I'd die of shame. (Also drives a lot of us hard workers to alcoholism in an effort to cope with the pressure and unfairness! ;))
11. - No? Sadly I can't say I've known of many if any men regularly dressing as women. Sure we have that side of society, if you want to see the most open-minded side of our country, for my money go to Brighton. It used to be the Gay capital of the country, but its gone beyond to become the capital of everything that's niche and minority with regards to sexuality, gender or anything else. Sure we got crossdressers, but who doesn't? It's not like it's a generally done or accepted thing - some folks still have difficulty seeing homosexuality as something other than a mental illness (morons) or an affront to whatever deity they coo over (morons).
12. - As its been said, thanks to football (soccer to you less educated folks :P) hooliganism we've got a pretty bad wrap for being overtly racist. It's not true. Some people consider me to be racist because I get frustrated at foreigners who come over to rape our welfare system, free healthcare and abuse tax loopholes whilst doing no work or giving nothing back. That's half true. I hate ANYONE who does that, whether they be a UK citizen or not. Sure we've got actual all-out racists, sexists you name it...but we're not all that way so please PLEASE don't tar us with that brush.

Other things to note - the class system...yep, it exists and it's utter SH..
Your families and your future standing is pretty much decided from birth. The politicians and the government only grease each other, and those in big business who they fund and in turn fund them to get into power and stay there. Think of your most hated politician from your country - someone who is widely regarded to be as dishonest as well...a politician...and I'm sure I can find you someone just as bad here without any trouble. Our governments are so out of touch with the people they RULE (not govern...that's bull) that they can hardly go a day without creating some massive gaffe and alienating a significant majority of the population, and that's without me even starting to mention the unelected FECKTARDS in the European Government who feel its their right to impose their bullshit laws on other countries and outright overturn the law of the respective lands they happen to now have some power over. Thanks Brussels, kindly do one!
Independent politics is a joke - you can only get into politics if you marry in, buy in or suck your way in...and that's pretty much it. Due to that generations of people have been born to be nothing but politicians so have no idea what it's actually like to be a run of the mill joe or juliet public on the street.
The worst of it being that most of them have private salaries anyway easily in the hundreds of thousands of £ per annum, and they then claim a wage for the pitiful amount of "work" they do running this debacle of a country. On top of that, its not like they NEED all that cash to fund being a member of government or politician because the COUNTRY SUBSIDISES or outright PAYS for it. And they feel it to be their right. Yet they're down on people who CBA to work for a living. So its alright for them but not the council-house dwelling scum? By and large they are the biggest concentration of hypocrites in the country :).

So yeah, welcome to Britain. Don't trust our politicians but we can be pretty nice people and really not so different from anyone else.

(P.S...don't get me started on our education system... )

Unintelligent AND middle-class! Typical. I'm glad you enjoy being a terrible person, you spoon-fed little pup.


Wow. That told me. I apologise for trying to identify with someone from my own country.
I have to disagree with my being a terrible person...I try my best. And as for spoon fed...the only spoon I feed myself with is one that I bought with my own wages from my crap job which I work in a shop stacking shelves day after mindless day. So go easy on the middle-class accusations.
