    The trouble with an `educational` repost like this is that once you`ve already learned the content from the first time round... there`s no point.

    At least with funny reposts the joke may not be stale yet.

    He didn`t answer one of his initial questions. Do the British make fun of those who get this information wrong? Who could possibly get it right? I`ll bet a majority of UK citizens couldn`t explain this.

    Only those who are arseholes or nationalists who are offended by foreigners not knowing the details and deride them for it. Who are also arseholes for doing that.

    Who could possibly get it right?

    Anyone who isn`t mentally handicapped, if they wanted to get it right. The only complicated part is the status of crown dependencies and overseas territories.

    I`ll bet a majority of UK citizens couldn`t explain this.

    Sure they could, other than details of crown dependencies and overseas territories.

    So, your islands are chopped up into several bickering, irrelevant little countries.

    Including the one that created your country, your language and your laws, and which has had a bigger effect (good and bad) on the world than any other country.

    Are you as much of an ignorant nationalist as you`re claiming to be, or are you trolling?

    Physically, socially, linguistically, politically, culturally and historically, the UK is *not* part of Europe.

    If you`re just looking at a map from 5000 miles away, you`re not getting anything like the complete picture.

    "Including the one that created your country, your language and your laws" Er, England didn`t create our country. We created it by throwing your grasping arses out. Besides, how`s that fact working out for you? And not part of Europe? You nede to look at your history and see where most of the people and language came from. The Welsh are the closest thing you have to true British.

    Hullo, i-a-b community, an Englishman here. Isn`t lukeforv123`s comment that English people suck ass a derogatory comment against people because of their origin? I would say that`s a hate crime, or at best racist. Have a word.

    Well ! Is`nt that special? Who gives a rats butt? Notice that about 41 sec. it looks like it is holding a newborn? and at about 1:30 it looks like it is ripping the head off a bear. And what is it with the crooked teeth? They came over here over 200 yrs ago and they still live in the dark ages.

    Hi lukeforv123,

    Whilst I value your contribution, unfortunately it makes little sense in the Queen`s English. You should understand that an ass is a hoofed mammal (genus Equus) of the horse family, typically smaller than a horse and with longer ears. These are more commonly found in Asia or Africa, sadly most English people seldom have an opportunity to acquaint themselves with such an animal.

    In contrast, from what I`ve seen posted on other internet forums, you suck donkeys.

    a) co-equal my arse
    b) northern irish people have the right to choose to be `Irish` and hold an Irish passport
    c) the term British Isles is offensive to the irish. We use `Britain and Ireland`. Or `the archipelago of north western european islands` works too.

    Angilion like it or not Europe is designed after the ancient Roman empire idea and like it or not Romans came in to that island of sheeps and deeply screwed your ancestors leaving to you one of the most ancient attestation of civilization still standing in your country, the Adrian Wall. Europeans loves you all,islander, also if you pertinaciously want to play the part of the superiors.

    Since I was fortunate enough to have missed it the first time, I found it interesting and educational (and I`m a flag wavin` redneck from Wyoming).
    BTW, MATWIX aludes to the fact that at least some of the content might be a repost, so why not just skip it and move on instead of crying about it?
