    60% isn`t bad is it?

    Where does the warm water come from if not the English Channel??????? The Gulf of Mexico is an ocean away. Water wouldn`t stay warm through the whole ocean. Eventually it`d cool off.

    Anyway. If you`re looking for a challenge, you should try the US Capitals. That`s HARD.

    Gulf of Mexico is correct, the heat get carried by the gulf stream across the Atlantic to us.

    And if you want a challenge, go to the US States quiz in an earlier link, and one of the other quizzes on that site is to name the English counties (a bit like US states). Now that`s tricky...

    It`s true, the Gulf Stream (AKA North Atlantic Drift) from the Gulf of Mexico keeps us nice and toasty- we`re on about the same northern latitude and Alaska, Siberia and northern Canada.

    PFFFFT.

    It`s only called the "Union jack" if it`s Flown at sea.

    Otherwise It`s the union Flag.

    This test is below me.

    I mean serisouly, No questions about Empire or India? Africa? The Sun never sets on the British empire?

    I mean come on!

    What the hell are a few facts going to do to you besides raise your ego? This is exactly what Farenhiet 452 is about. The illusion of Knowing. Well, amognst other things.

    This ain`t very good.

    1) There`s no such thing as Britain. United Kingdom, Great Britain or the British Isles all exist and are geographical or political definitions, Britain doesn`t exist.

    2) The population stat is missing about 3m people + probably another 2m E European legal immigrants and another 1m illegal immigrants.

    I would like to include Greater Birmingham`s population (also known as the West Midlands conurbation), which makes it 2.2m people, on the basis that I can, cos I live there. Did you know that we have more canals in Birmingham than Venice does?

    I only got the gulf of Mexico because I knew it was called the gulf stream.

    In southwest England, where it has the most effect, it`s possible to grow palm trees. The temperature here is much higher than would be expected from the latitude.

    I got the second city wrong - I thought Manchester was bigger than Birmingham.

    It`s a bit academic, though, as so many towns and cities here merge nowadays. The borders can be just lines on a map, sometimes in the middle of a street.

    Lol.

    It`s still called the Union Jack. Even if it`s "just" at sea.

    Incidentally, when you ask most Brits what the flag is called, they`ll tell you it`s the Union Jack.

    Therefore, that is what it is called. Because that`s what they call it. Even if the they`re not calling it what the definition is.

    Actually, a quick look up on Wiki:

    The issue of whether to use the term "Union Flag" or "Union Jack" is a matter of some debate. One view is that "Union Jack" should only be used for the flag when it is flown as a jack (a small flag flown at the bow of a ship), but it is not universally accepted that the "Jack" of "Union Jack" is a reference to such a jack flag and is only an educated guess.

    The Flag Institute, the vexillological organisation for the United Kingdom, stated that the term Union Flag is a "relatively recent idea". It also noted that "From early in its life the Admiralty itself frequently referred to the flag as the Union Jack, whatever its use, and in 1902 an Admiralty Circular announced that Their Lordships had decided that either name could be used officially. Such use was given Parliamentary approval in 1908 when it was stated that "the Union Jack should be regarded as the National flag&quo

    RE: Our national flag...

    Some of the info is a little wrong...

    It is only the "Union Jack" when flown from the Jack Staff on board one of HM Warships. And only when in port. At sea, only the Ensign flown. At all other times it should be referred to as the "Union Flag".

    It is from the Jack staff that British sailors (particularly RN) earnt the nickname "Jolly Jack Tars" and the so called "jargon" or slang is known as "jack-speak"

    Arrgg. I don`t even live in the UK and I can easily see this quiz was bullshiit.

    Half the questions are legitimate. Two are completly wrong and three are longshots that someone who lives there would be lucky to get.

    I expect perfect questions on quizzes, otherwise the quiz is worth nothing.

    ^^FUGAZI100, I`m embarrassed that you`re British and don`t even know your own country.

    Northern Ireland is not in Britain (that`s the name of that island you`re from). It is however in the UK (check your passport- the full name of the country is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland).

    So to summarise, I`m British being from the UK, but I`m not from Britain. I am however from the British Isles.

    Who ever said it was confusing?

    ^^ Vader, as I already pointed out, the question wasn`t which countries are in the UK, it was which countries are in Britain.

    That`s why it`s called the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

    8. I mixed up Great Britain with the United Kingdom in question 1. But the quiz freely refers to the UK as `Britain` throughout anyway. And I thought there were more people in London.

    but i am british and i have taken geography for GCSE.
    come on people, how could you get the gulf stream thing wrong?
    its mentioned every day on the weather report.
    and it seems that the only piece of information anyone knows about our climate, because every tells me it all the time.
    I am sure i am going to die muttering about mild climates and gulf streams

    I`m British and I got 2 wrong.

    But Q1 & 5 are wrong. It`s only the Union Jack if it`s at sea, otherwise it`s the Union Flag. And Britain is England, Scotland Wales AND Northern Ireland! GREAT Britain is only the first three. The whole of Britain includes N. Ire.

    FAIL

    Ok, in PLAIN ENGLISH:
    Britain = England, Wales, Scotland
    UK = Britain + N. Ireland.
    British isles = UK + Ireland
    C`mon, it`s not like Davymind hasn`t said it enough already.

    ^^ Thanks for the props Aqua. You`re almost right, I`ll give you an A-.

    Britain = England, Wales, Scotland
    UK = Britain + N. Ireland
    Ireland = N. Ireland + Republic of Ireland
    British Isles = Britain + Ireland

    And just to be really anal: England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and UK are political entities. Britain, Ireland and British Isles are geographical entities.

    I`m Scottish Not British, I think most people now-a-days would agree that there is no real `British-ness` to Britian anymore.

    Even more so if Scotland manages to get independence.

    I hate the fact that everyone classes us as "British" or "Brits". I`m from England, and can`t speak Welsh or Scottish and do not class myself as Welsh or Scottish, and therefore I am just English. Although I do live in Britain collectively.

    And I prefer St George`s flag to the Union Jack

    Sorry if somebody has mentioned this before, I haven`t read all the comments. Question 5 is wrong I think. The British flag is called the Union Flag. It`s only a Union Jack when it`s on a ship or boat.

    Nah Northern Ireland is part of the `United Kingdom` but not `Great Britain`. The little known official name for the country is the `United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland`.
