Although officially not permitted by law, you'll be glad to know that murder by stabbing is quickly replacing croquet as the number one pastime here in the United Britain of Wales, Turkey and Luxembourg.
And now I feel silly. It's always interesting to see how laws seem to have minimal impact on criminals. Who would have guessing that law abiding citizens would be the only ones leave their knives at home .

It's alright, I guess. I live there and wouldn't really want to live anywhere else, but really isn't that great, Anglophilia is a bit misguided.

Texas is a better country than England.

And I apologise for over-reacting

It must be from dodging all the knife-wielding maniacs

Do you count that among your personal accomplishments?

I must say, I'd find it quite dreary to know that my family's greatest accomplishment was achieved well before my birth.

Yes, Old Perculiar is reason enough to make it really great...

Americans have 50 fucking states and capitals that we have to remember just to know who we even are before we can start with the world OK

The odd thing about this thread is that someone who appreciates England, as OP appeared to, ought not to have praised the UK, which is really a sort of melange, with few common characteristics between the ingredients. I myself appreciate English and Irish culture (my family is Hiberno-Norman, which also gives me roots in those countries), but not Scotch or recent Welsh.
