    The Pilgrims left to escape religious persecution.
    And Austrailia was a penal colony.
    While I agree that Brittan plays a large role in the causes of these colonies, I think that taking credit is a little over-reaching.

    That than that, good show.
    Touche.

    Wow. Actually I am a little English (thats where i get my last name), but im also Lithuanian and Swedish.

    You forget this is a free country and immigrants from all over the world have come here and called this place home. To think that everyone here is British is a little selfish and ignorant.

    Last I checked Vanilla Ice didn't translate the first English edition of the Bible and contribute more to the English dictionary or any language for that than any other identifiable individual in history, but that's just me.
