Reinventing the Wheel

Here in France, things work a little differently. I've noticed that they like to do/make their own thing. Yesterday, France came out with its own version of those online map sites like Google or Microsoft and Jaques Chirac is working on 'Quaero', a French search engine. People have told me that the French think that French culture and the language are the best so they only speak their own language.

Don't get me wrong; I'm glad they think that, but it seems a little redundant. When they were giving us the tour here, one of the professors showed us a partly assembled helicopter and explained that although the US and Israel have had autonomous helicopters for a while, they want to invent their own.
