Goopy Gwyneth, Olé!

Gwyneth has become enamored of another Euro-culture. One of those like, old ones, she thinks...

Gwyneth Paltrow Says Spain Changed Her Life
"It is so different from the United States. It seemed to have a history, and the buildings are years and years and years old. Here in the United States an old building is about 17 (years old), and over there it's from 500 B.C., it's incredible," she said.
Really?! Years and years and years old! Actually in 500 B.C. (and I'm sure you meant B.C.E. you insensitive christocentric American!) Iberia was being colonized by Greeks. Pretty much everything they built is a bit "run down" now. And really Gwen, everything in the United States is about 17 years old? Ah yes, I remember back in 1990s when America opened and they built the Old North Church and Faneuil Hall, and it seems like just yesterday they laid the final brick for Independence Hall, and what a sight to see the helicopter raise the capstone for the Washington Monument up and into place...

What a ... well... I guess Goop is the right word after all.
