Some of the best music came from England/ U.K (I personally love Scottish/Celtic/Irish music)
Shephard's Pie is Really good
It rains...a lot and is often pretty cold (I'm assuming, correct me if I'm wrong)
Stonehenge is located there and so is Loch Ness (the Lake)
Tons of historical castles spreading all across the nation
The birthplace of one of the best playwrights in history (Shakespeare of course)

I can't say I know too much about the U.K, but it's never been on my list of places to travel to, though I really wouldn't mind making a visit and checking it out (as far as I know, the pop culture there is pretty similar to America).

Another fun, interesting thing, the original inhabitants of the UK now live in Wales, if it wasn't for lots of invasions (the UK hasn't been successfully invaded in almost 1,000 years) which brought them nasty Saxons over, you would all be speaking Welsh!



I'm Welsh! And I have to thank our Saxon overlords for one thing... forcing English on us! Although I'm growing to appreciate it more now, I'm not a fan of the Welsh language to be honest. I did get a giggle out of "mae fy hofrenfad yn llawn llyswennod".

In all honesty I don't think the UK is a terrible place to live. Sure, it has numerous points that let it down (an incompetent, unelected government being one of them) but in general everything's cool. The NHS is far from perfect, but I would rather a free service than have to worry about thousands of pounds worth of medical bills.

Also, I personally like our food. Try a Cornish Pasty and thank me later

I think of a country that used to rule the world in a way, has a queen, and is an old country with not as much going for it as it has had in the past.

and the bad teeth thing i see that problem all over the world it probably comes from the British drinking tea as tea and coffee strains your teeth brown and this came from the Victorian time as teeth care was not so good all so AT that time all over the world so i see this as a stereotype from 100s years ago


the crime thing is true there's hardy any crime un way of killings. because your not aloud no guns in the uk so you feel very safe because u don't feel like some ones going to stick cap in your head so you don't need a gun to and robbing crimes getting less and less mostly because CCTV is like every were they like no your going to rob before you do


and apart from seeing this most the the year its ok



PS wish the Chavs would Die Xd


Damn! As a natural born Floridian and having sunshine almost year-round, that sounds awful lol.

I think that the UK public is as unaware as the american public is on how the wealthy in the UK control the most unethical companies in the US. I was told by a UK executive at a holding company that owns leading companies of tobacco, alcohol, weaponry, media, office supplies, plumbing and other industries that permanent positions were limited to UK citizens, even in the US, because the queen's family were major stock holders. The UK also controls american school bus companies. Our news organizations are also controlled by other people loyal to the crown. While the royal family claims no political interests, their companies funnel vast amounts of money that control US policy such as shielding tobacco and firearm companies from lawsuits.

As long as the citizens of the UK allow the royal family and the house of lords to continue to be the puppeteers of the worst of america, we are going to continue to act to the benefit of many of the greediest people in the world at cost to all of the rest. A good start would be to investigate the all of foreign income that the royal family does not seem to claim as part of its meager income. If they are allowed all of that income from wealth gained by UK citizens, shouldn't the country nationalize that wealth and let the royal family live off of the meager income that they currently collect for their services?

Other than that, I would love to visit all parts of the UK, wish that we had their medical programs, and think that their women look fantastic. Fish and chips are the only English food that I know that I have eaten and I also enjoy English television and music although sometimes I wish that I could find an English to American dictionary so I could understand some of their other non-London dialects.
