9. French beaches are full of topless women
While it's far cheaper to just hit your local strip club to see bare breasts, if you really want to fly to France, yes, there are still ladies who lay out topless on the beach. But not at all like it used to be. Plastic surgery and social media have made showing off one’s body a much more self-conscious act, says Eatwell, and today nearly 50 percent of French women are bothered by nudity on the beach, 37 percent by seeing breasts.
Though we’re never one to question the logic of Groundskeeper Willie, French military mediocrity is actually a rather new phenomenon. Sure, they refused to back us in Iraq and forced us to rename the French fry. And then there was Vietnam. BUT prior to that, they had quite a history of Jean Reno-level bad-assness. For example, the Napoleonic Commander Marshall Ney, upon being sentenced to death, actually ordered his firing squad to shoot him. During the First World War, the French took the third-highest number of casualties at 1.3 million. And let's not forget that the USA wouldn't exist if not for the French military.
