the national pastime of England
In the late 1700's a frenchman wrote a book titled the 'English love of fighting' In it he describes how the English delight in 'fisticufts in the street' and how they would gather round any altercation and whip it up into a full scale brawl. He also observed that the 'English have no love of politics and could never be led to revolution'and that 'they have no religion but gambling and drinking'
Fortunatley things have changed and we can now add football
as another religion

Not only a national sport in some countries, but also a very important life skill, especially if you're going to be someone like George Bush, who lives only for wars. Also, Remember that fighting is an inter-galactic passtime.
