Episode Info: Today’s show will take a leaning to the French people and their culture. First off, I want to thank all my fans from France. I was checking out my dHarmic Evolution Podcast download stats, and right behind America, France is the country with the 2nd highest download stats. So thank you to all you French fans of the podcast! Weird enough though, I don’t think I’ve hosted any French guests on the show before. Having hosted artists from over 35 different countries, I am still looking to host a French artist. So if you’re listening to the show and know a French singer/songwriter, author, speaker, or thought leader, kindly recommend them to me and I’d love to have them on the show. They can reach me at james@thejamesoconnoragency.com With the quarantine going on, I’ve been spending a lot of my extra time running, praying, and reading books.

I’m a new student of Cryptocurrency and the book “Crypto Facts” alongside George Gilder’s “Life After Google” are some of the masterpieces that I’ve been reading to help increase my knowledge of this new space. Thank you, France! Having dedicated the show to my French fans, I figured I’d entertain all of you with some top, interesting facts about the French and their culture, most of which just might blow your mind! But before that, I wanna share an off the book fact that I recently learned from a World War 2 documentary I was watching. Did you know that the Germans, when attacking France, were pumped up on Methylphenidate to keep them up and running for 3 straight days? A task the French thought it would take the Germans at least 2 weeks to accomplish, the Germans were able to break through into Paris in just 3 days! With that said, here are some of the top facts about the French and their culture that I bet you didn’t know. • France is sometimes known as The Hexagon due to the fact that it has six sides • When all of French’s possessions worldwide are taken into account. France occupies 12 time zones. The most of any country. • Paris was a roman city originally. It was known as Lutetia • In addition to being the most studied language in the world after English. Alongside, Italian and Spanish, French is one of the most romantic languages. The duo has origins in Latin. • The French army was the first to use camouflage as a war tactic in world war 1 • Over one-half of the traffic roundabouts worldwide is located in France. • In the Second World War, when Hitler visited the Eiffel Tower, the French cut all of the lift cables. This forced him to climb the stairs if he wanted to enjoy the view from the top. • King Louis the 19th had the shortest reign in history: 20 minutes. His father had abdicated the throne, and Louis followed him in abdicating in favor of his nephew....
