A country in Western Europe that remains a world leader, despite what some think.
Much maligned by other cultures, especially the American and British people: in the latter case, for a historical rivalry over French territory that remained until the sixteenth century, while in the former, for French DOS (denial of support) in the War on Terror. Americans often miss the fact that French troops are right now in Afghanistan, which - last I checked - was part of the War on Terror.
Americans also tend to forget, aside from the Statue of Liberty and ninety percent of the gunpowder and ammunition used in the American Revolution, not to mention that the British first surrendered to Rochambeau and not to Washington, that without the French Paul Revere wouldn't have existed (French father), nor would there actually be an United States beyond the Mississippi River. Nor, in fact, would there exist the tactics utilized during the Civil War (written by a French general).
Americans who lambast France have not yet quite realized that, unlike America, France has been invaded several times over the course of its history, and yet has maintained most of its culture intact. French soldiers were the first to charge into the German trenches in World War I, and without their bravery there wouldn't have been the stalemate that lost the war for Germany. In fact, the top Allied fighter ace for that war, for you Eddie Rickenbacker fans, was French. In World War II, more French soldiers left Dunkirk and Ostend than British Empire soldiers, and it was largely thanks to the French Resistance that D-Day was prepared. Plus, more French soldiers went ashore that day anyway.
Americans have made their contribution to world history. With that secure, some of you need to stop bringing down your oh-so-righteous wrath on cultures who also have done their part.

In Puerto Rican slang, variously a stupid or moronic person, a pretender ("poser"), or a person the majority defines as "uncool."
Ese tipo es un guasa./That dude's a guasa.
Originating from the Hispanic last name "de Jesús" mashed together, used to refer to a particularly handsome male specimen of the human race. First witnessed in use in Puerto Rico but now spreading onto the mainland U.S.
"Gabe is SUCH a bujeebus."
A purported "gang" with chapters in several Puerto Rican middle schools, mostly composed of seventh and eighth graders. They are generally characterized by arrogance, self-righteousness and disrespect to others, even those above their own age. This defiance to the social order of the school is usually not appreciated by high school students, especially upperclassmen.
Other defining characteristics of the "T-Unit," as they like to call themselves, include verbal and physical abuse of sixth and seventh graders and freshmen, mouthing off to teachers and older students, and chauvinistic attitudes celebrating their masculinity, even though some members conform to the stereotype of a "nerd" or "geek" (i.e. glasses, short, out of shape, etc.)
Apparently based on popular hip-hop groups such as G-Unit and Murder Inc.
John: "You heard? The Terror Unit beat up a freshman yesterday."
Mario: "That's not right, man. We've got to find some way to get rid of those little idiots."
An underground organization with chapters in most Puerto Rican schools, founded in opposition to the Terror Unit
. The CT-Unit, as it is known, promotes respect for one's elders and for the social order in the school. It is formed from most of the cliques in the school, with each having at least one representative in the body of the Unit.
Its organizational structure is also far more complicated than that of its opponents. Directors, the leaders of each chapter, are elected by the body at large, while the Directors themselves choose one as General Director. Each Director then chooses a member from the body to be a sort of under-Director, though this member holds no official rank.
The CT-Unit does its best not to utilize the verbal and physical abuse that mark its opponent; however, sometimes it is necessary for CTs to take violent action in defense of another or others. Directors are generally empowered to institute different policies regarding physical action; most commonly, if a T-Unit member attacks a CT, the Director calls for an all-out war against the T-Unit in that school.
Mario: "You're in the Counter-Terrorist Unit now?"
John: "Yeah, I just caught one of those little T-Unit morons hitting a kid yesterday."
Mario: "Kicked his ass?"
John: "You know it! I'm thinking of running for Director, actually!"
Acronym meaning "Cretins of the World, Unite." Though a custom started by mathematics teachers, it has become a commonplace phenomenon on the Internet through the efforts of amateur linguists. Usage is generally when someone has done something incredibly stupid.
