for real! lol. It was so interesting to see how all the founding fathers interacted with each other.


the part im at is where he becomes the vice president.
it's just fucking nuts. I really liked how they showed the cultural difference in european and american culture at the time and how things have never really changed


americans were comparatively more sexually uptight, more religiously inspired, liked getting straight to business and less bound by tradition and class

the french were gay as all hell, constantly trying to have a good time, avante garde, and take forever to get things done due to goofing around too much

the british were spiteful, cold, snobbish and everything was about routine and tradition

and the dutch were all about their paper.
