So I was playing some pool online with a guy from England, Essex to be exact. We were chatting and he said something (I can't remember what), to which I responded, "You Brits talk funny ." So he asked me, and I quote "Why do Americans speak English, their not even close to each other." I said because we were once a Colony of England, thats what the whole American Revolution was all about. He had no clue what I was talking about! I said "Don't they teach you about it in History class" He said "No." I asked him a few times if he was joking, and he said "Seriously I've never heard of that until now." He said he was 23, so he managed to finish High School, and perhaps College without even knowing what the American Revolution was let alone any facts about it. I mean I guess Im not expecting it to be as big a part of your History class as it is Ours, but I would think they would at least mention it, being as your Country was kinda involved. So do you not learn about it over there? Are you just mad that you lost? Talk about holding a grudge.
