3) Produces nice cheese.
4) Produces shedloads of nuclear weapons, which are happily tested on small Pacific atolls home to endangered species of fish and pygmies.

6) Also the number one source of contention for the United States, having replaced the Soviet Union.
7) Has an annoying accent.

9) Dislikes Germany, for invading it repeatedly and being German.
10) Dislikes Britain for constant warfare, political disagreement and out of habit.
11) Dislikes the United States for its competition in the 'irritating accents' league table and also for having more nuclear weapons and cheese than France.

Get the Evolutionist mug.

The horseshoe vortex system is a simple vortex model for an aircraft or lifting body which fits a box-shaped vortex system out from the wing. This is made up of the wing vortex, trailing vortices (see trailing vortex) and starting vortex. The latter is a vortex formed due to changes in the vorticity of the wing vortex, i.e due to changes in airspeed.
I can't honestly think of a good example for you. Sorry
