Not the greatest fan of the BDO tbh. Much prefer the glitz and glamour of the PDC. But I'm watching it as I do every year.

Oh I love the existence of this thread.

Your silly British sports make me laugh. Like Cricket... "That game you don't understand"
The Yanks don't have it much better with professional billiards.



"And the bowler HURLS the ball met with a backlift and a quick agricultural shot by the batter."

Never been a fan of the darts, playing or watching or whatever. However would really like to the SKY one that travels the country and is televised. Looks an ace laugh and I know it comes to Aberdeen occasionally. Reckon there is right good time to be had there!

Silly British sports? Coming from a North American?

It's a hard a cross to bear being the country that brought the world the vast majority of the popular sports on a world level. :rolleyes:

Britain is technically its own country with its own government and set soverignty. It plays on the international market as one and is unifed otherwise as one. Great Britain is a different matter...

Your move :rolleyes:

The United Kingdom (of Great Britain) is a Soverentny...... Britain is an island comprised of most of the countries of England, Scotland and Wales..... Get on my level.

we must define country. do we define it as a cultural/ancestral heritage or an economic/social system of governance?

This is going to spiral into something that I hate: A discussion on pedantries.

No it won't; ask the English, Scottish & Welsh and well over 90% wouldn't define Britain as a Country, just the Northern Irish really, it's not even a debate.

A country is a region (defined by connecting borders or not.) that is inhabited by a group of people with a distinct political and social identity.

England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales..... Now we may identify on many matters and will fight to the hilt to defend our combined identity...... But we will fight each other (And have done since time immemorial.) even harder to define our individual geographical and social identities.

Ergo, we are a commune of mostly likeminded individuals who rally under a common banner..... Who will be the first to fall out with each other to assert our individual thinking over the other.

Its not straight forward or even logical.... But that's how it is, over time we have been real brothers in many ways..... We love and hate each other in equal measures. Though the English being the (Self imposed) elder brother, were often the easy target of frustration.

Obviously this is a massively simplified rundown of my view on the matters here. But heck, your country as a society isn't even as old as my house. 520 years..... So you weren't to know. :tongue:

Appealing to the majority doesn't back up a point. If nine in ten people on this forum thought that Marc was a female, it wouldn't mean he is a female.
Also, 67% of American elementary teachers think we use only 10% of our brains. But we do not use 10% of our brains.

Some things aren't up for a vote.

Just remember one thing... We (Britain) probably wrote the book (Literaly) that your pulling your definitions from. :eviltongue:

You know I was just thinking the other day I bet my house is older than butters country.
Yes, I am being serious and not just saying it, I was actually thinking that.

Pretty sure my deeds said late 1850`s / early 1860`s will have to check :p

Cmon Jezza, as a modern guy you must understand that it's all about what the individual "Identifies" as...... Barack Obama isn't mixed race.... In his eyes he's black, because that's how he "Identifies". Get with it. :)

Definitely not by connecting borders. Look at the headache that is the Netherlands/Belgian border. Or Kaliningrad + Russia.
Okay. Through your definition, I'll yield. State vs. country vs. nation is pretty ambiguous. I think we can fight to the hill to our points respectively. Perhaps plain text isn't the best way to have a serious conversation about nation v. state v. country.


It is indeed. Perhaps a tad too emotionally charged for any conversation to be had here....


:pound: I miss your winter house... And its stalagtites.
Funny... "The Hudson Bay" company is bordering on 500 years old being Canadian and just a while back, we sold it to another American company. It was one of the saddest things ever.
