When it had a whole continent to rape, ruin, exploit and otherwise despoil. Admittedly anyone in the same position would have done the same.

In terms of rapid expansion, influence, increased wealth and such I always think of the period from about 1940 to 1975 or so.

When it was ruled by Great Britain, obviously.

which is never since , when the UK still had possessions in continental America, France and Spain had larger ones (except maybe the 1759-1776 period for France)

OK so they gave us Jazz.

Jazz was stolen by Africans from British missionaries, who still can't play a tune reliably more than one time.

Thinking about it. Jazz was probably a universal language before sheet music and recording studios. Flute music. Any tune will do.

I might be. That's because I admire jazz and seek to culturally appropriate it (a lot). Unlike classical music I can't predict the next note, rather exciting. You take Wagner and I'll take Coltrane?

(EDIT: of course, the British controlled even more than this at various points eg Oregon, Washington and BC on the Pacific coast)

Don't know about great, but it was pretty nice a couple of weeks ago, before all this fucking rain.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.
