Default Failure!

Okay, type in "failure" in google and click on "I'm feeling lucky". What it comes up with is funny.

My money is on George Bush.

Ha! Knew it! Of course, it helps when you've heard this before.


Also, try "French Military Victories".

There are quite a few french military victories... and you can see a few of em if you aren't feeling lucky. It's just that they tend to be during times when the french aren't being led by frenchmen...

Well I know that, it's just that the majority of them were in the middle ages. And if the "french" won anything in modern times, I'd place a bet on the French Foreign Legion. Who aren't even french.

They even lost against themselves. I'm refering to the French Revolution, we all love the heads popping off everywhere, but the revolution didn't actualy accomplish much. They started with a Monarchy and parlement deal, after killing some people they slowly got closer to a democracy but in every case one group had more power than the others, and power was uneven. Then they ended up a dictatorship lead by Napolean.

Let me get this straight... So they fought a war against themselves to remove a monarchy/parlement & create a democracy, and ended up with a dictatorship. Thats backtracking, so they(people who wanted democracy) lost and the king died(so he lost) :-\. So both sides lost a civil war ::begins smacking self in face:: :P. Both sides were French, there were no third parties, and they still lost ???.

Yes, sadly, that is how most revolutions end up. The french were no exception.
