so, cracked had an article about how the founding fathers were pains in the king's ass. well, sure they were.
however, I must take exception for blaming us for dragging the british into the french and indian war. HELLO?! we WERE the british at the time. so needless to say, we started throwing down on the french out of pure instinct.
word got back across the atlantic and with a great tally ho! as many people who could rush over and join in (the british empire had a lot to do back then, so it wasn't everyone) we were quickly joined.
if people still fought with swords, the british and french would be fighting right now. it was, like, a hobby or whatever. but, after the invention of machine guns, they called a permanent truce.
so, the king was surely GRATEFUL we found another reason to fight with the french. hehe :)
really, the people who probably shouldn't have been dragged into it were the indians. if they'd known what a bunch of bullshit as usual it was, they surely would have opted out.
