The Scottish care, how would you like it if London Manchester and everywhere in England was thought to be in Scotland

But, it wouldn't though.

i dont know one end of the country to the other so it wouldnt make much difference to me, but at least if you pee someone off they wont be able to find you;-)

Well, hopefully you're gonna go for independence soon so you'll become completely obscure and we can forget all about you:p

I know, I was just pointing out that you are generalising just like 'them' by saying:

FFS typical American company.

Honest answer: I couldn't care less, but I understand the point you are trying to make. :thumbsup:

Because the Americans can't understand how an island 50 times smaller than the state of Texas can be three countries.

Must of been programmed by typical Americans, they think Scotland is a estate in London(Really) the amount of times on message boards I have seen Amercans ask if they should go to Glasgow or Aberdeen for the day whilst they are in London, and they also think the UK is so small you can walk from one end to another in a hour

I'm in Wales and mine shows as England too.Never really bothered me until some American fool on Xbox live referred to me as a 'Tea Sipping,Crumpet Eating M**********r!'

To which I felt I had to apologise as at that time I was clean out of blueberry pie and had to leave the lobby once the game and finished as I had an afternoon game of croquet to attend !.:p
