    i'm proud to be british as so far no brit has sued a microwave maker for not putting a warning on it saying that you can't dry your wet dog in it.... unlike the few stupid americans who have... and that's not to mention the other common senseless things they have done... we might do stupid things but dear lord they do it sooo much better.
