Remembering the 10th Century Norman Conquest of the Channel Islands
not many people realise, but more people died during this then in pearl harbor and Darwin combined.

Tell us more Danubis.
He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery.

Sec. 31 But how far has he given it us? To enjoy. As much as anyone can make use of to any advantage of life before it spoils, whatever is beyond this, is more than his share, and belongs to others. Nothing was made by God for man to spoil or destroy. And thus considering the plenty of natural provisions there was a long time in the world, and the few spenders, and to how small a part provision the industry of one man could extend itself, and ingross itself to the prejudice of others.

William the First was the first of our kings,
Not counting Ethelreds, Egberts and things,
And he had himself crowned and anointed and blest
In Ten-Sixty Six-I-Needn’t-Tell-You-The-Rest.
But being a Norman, King William the First
By the Saxons he conquered was hated and cursed,
And they planned and they plotted far into the night,
Which William could tell by the candles alight.
Then William decided these rebels to quell
By ringing the curfew, a sort of a bell,
And if any Saxon was found out of bed
After eight o’clock sharp, it was Off With His Head!
At Bong number one they were off at a run like a warren of rabbits upset by a gun.
At Bong number two they were all in a stew, flinging cap after tunic and hose after shoe.
At Bong number three they were bare to the knee, undoing the doings as fast as could be.
At Bong number four they were stripped to the core, putting on nightshirts the wrong side before.
At Bong number five they were looking alive, bizzing and buzzing like bees in a hive.
At Bong number six they all gave themselves kicks, tripping over the rushes to put out the wicks.
At Bong number seven from Durham to Devon they slipped a quick prayer for revenge up to Heaven.
At Bong number eight it was fatal to wait: in the deuce of a state I regret to relate they jumped Bong into bed like a bull at a gate.
Here endeth the lesson

This is an outrage. Sean Penn needs to tell France to end this last vestige of colonialism and end its occupation of Britain.
