      Well, there are of course, some cultural differences between the French and English people. Firt of, food-wise, they don't eat the same things. French don't got scones, fish and chips. XD And English got them.

      Second, french and english have opposed each other for many many years to centuries even. Why? Because of history, religion and wars and some other things. So yeah, English and French never got along until recently. XDD

      French eat croissants, pastries and put on perfumes and colognes, English don't as much, at least, not from what I've seen.

      Whats your opinion on the French and the English? Do you know many disparities between the two nations?

      Can't say I have really noticed any myself to be honest that you haven't already mentioned. Not too sure about the perfume one though as I know many that wear perfume on a daily basis so maybe that is something that used to be that way before but has changed since.

      It's because France always surrenders during war.

      I have family that live in France and family whom live where I live that can speak French fluently but never really gone into researching the differences between the two other than what I already know which is pretty much what you stated above :)

      I think if I had visited France I may have more to add however I haven't been able to visit yet, would love to though. :)

      I don't really understand why people always talk in this way about French, I mean, I am not French but have you ever heard about Napoleon?

      of course it wasn't a good idea but I was giving you an example of military victories and the best military genius.
      maybe you should learn history a little bit better.

      You shouldn't take things on the internet so seriously, especially when people are talking about France. It's really just a tongue in cheek thing.

      I actually know a lot about history, I'm studying it. I may be more schooled in East-Asian history, but I still know European history. I think the European country with the most interesting history is Turkey.
