They searched the world for herbs and spices because their own food was so horrible. After finding what they needed they withdrew to their home islands never to be heard from again. Pray that their food never becomes bland again or they will surely return!

MaudlinMutantMollusk: And what have they got to show for it?


We don't have to learn as many new languages when we go on holiday.

ParallelUniverseParking: But was it legitimate invasion?


I know this sounds counter-intuitive, but if it's a legitimate invasion, that doesn't mean that it resulted in colonization and British rule. The defending nation has ways of shutting that whole thing down.

GORDON: ThatGuyFromTheInternet: xynix: The old Brits were awesome at nation building. If you look at the countries or places they sat on for awhile they're all successful. Though South Africa is still not comparable to India or the US it's at least a shining beacon of what the African continent -could- one day become.

Well, it's a lot easier when you eradicate the natives.

When it is stone age vs. high tech, high tech wins 9 times out of 10. Just the way things are.


Yeah, that 10th time it's always some asshole with a spear, knocking out my tanks.

They need to colonize big countries in order to compensate for the size of their little island.

JasonOfOrillia: How the hell did Sweden avoid invasion? They were a major European power at one point, the Brits should have wanted to give them a spanking at some point.



Who the hell would want to invade a place with lutefisk? When waging war with Sweden the spoils of war smell spoiled.

And India doesn't count anyway - that subcontinent was practically asking for it.

Thereal problem is...how do we blame England's imperialism, colonization, and basically, war on religion. This is a dilly of a pickle because it really is nationalism and commerce and not religion. Hmmm. Where's an atheist. We need some revisionist history here.
