They don't take showers very often? I'm not even sure if that's true.

I view the UK as its component countries in a political, economic, and military union. It's a union of Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Britain, each with their own cultures and perspectives.

There are also a bunch of different ethnic groups.

-Vega-There are also a bunch of different ethnic groups.


There certainly are, and it's a difficult thing to try to parse them all out and put them into a neat chronological order of arrival at a given location.

A fag is a cheap cigarette yes, a faggot is a cheap piece of meat or an offcut, often something like pigs heart or liver, or cheap ass bacon minced up with herbs and breadcrumbs. Kinda like a meatball but cheaper (and nicer)

Most of the stuff said here isn't actually true. We don't all have bad teeth and coffee is a far more popular beverage then tea. British food is great and mostly healthy. And I have yet to meet someone over here who looks like Austin Powers!

Is British food healthy? Maybe I spend too much time in Greggs.

Depends which parts of it you go with. If you look towards like fish+chips etc then not specifically, but if you look at things like the amount of organs in general (liver specifically) that we traditionally eat, the reliance on root vegetables, etc etc then its pretty healthy. That said most people here seem to have developed a 'eurgh its an organ, how can you eat that' mentality in recent times, which is utterly retarded.

It seems that every british person I have ever met has been a grumpy middle aged business man that has no manners and doesn't care about others.

So that is how I view the UK, a bunch of grumpy middle aged business men and their wives.

It's sad because i'm from Northern ireland which is also a part of the UK but nobody realizes that or at least doesn't acknowledge it :(.


To be fair, there are many people up North who resent the fact that they are part of the UK and don't acknowledge it.

I'm Northern Irish myself and wouldn't get too hung up on it one way or another and tbh most people down South where I live now and on mainland Britain couldn't care less about what goes on up North. It's very complicated hassle neither wants to get involved in. That flag in Belfast nonsense showed the general apathy in both sides towards the North's affairs.


Yeah i know what you mean i'm not one of those people that are like "i'm british not irish, get it right" since well yeah we are all irish but we're also british if we live in the north. I don't really care for the rest of the UK the same as they don't really care for us but it doesn't change the fact we're still part of the UK. Honestly i'm just glad we're part of the UK because of the Pound sterling xD still best exchange rate i think but too bad the economy is shit lol.
