  1. Most americans dont even know where "britain" is. I kid you not.

    Those who do, think "england" is "britain"

    Lol - yes, i agree.

    Whenever you hear a Yank on TV talking about the UK, he refers to it as "England".
  3. Isn't England and Britain and UK the same thing indeed?

    England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom.[6][7][8] It shares land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west; the Irish Sea is to the north west, the Celtic Sea to the south west and the North Sea to the east, with the English Channel to the south separating it from continental Europe. Most of England comprises the central and southern part of the island of Great Britain in the North Atlantic. The country also includes over 100 smaller islands such as the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight.

    Let's see....England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland together make the UK. Now, Britain is only England and Wales.

    Gordon Ramsey is your friend? Does he shout and scream at you?

    Um, no. Great Britain technically refers to England, Wales and Scotland (plus a bunch of smaller islands).

    The UK is England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (plus a bunch of small islands)
