I've always wondered the same thing. How a tiny Island was so "intimidating" back in the old days.

This is how it is now a days.

Think it's in our genes, before we became GB we were constantly getting invaded by people like the Romans, Vikings, and the fucking French! We are a mix of all those, so we are pretty badass.

Oh and the USA is nothing but a tiny little spec on the world history map, in a 1000 years time no one will remember the USA, but they will always remember the British Empire.

Maybe it was less of an invasion more like bringing democracy to the world. You only have to look at the history of Great Britain to see that our contribution to the world is without comparison. I'v just listed a few names of note. So before you start winging about the British just remember if it wasn't for us most of you would still be living in caves and you wouldn't be posting your messages on this web site. I have just listed a few names of note. But if you want a more comprehensive list of British people that have made you life so comfortable you can check it out on wiki.
