Odd topic. Never been there either. They have many great comic writers and musicians.

Uhhh...I like Doctor Who quite a bit and the band the Damned. That's great you dont take living somewhere like that for granted.

Lived in London for nearly 5 years, last year took an £8000 pay-cut to get out of it and couldn't be happier. Rude, miserable place where nobody cares, cash is king and everyone wants their hands in your pockets. Tried really hard to like it, but in the end, London won. Great place to cut your teeth in your career though, learned a lot.

Glad to hear you enjoy it though! Guess it just wasn't for me lol

Born in England, but study in Wales. Never thought there was a place which suffered more rain then England, but hey, I found it.

Quite like the fact I was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of Shakespeare ;)

But, again, it rains a lot. Pros and Cons.

#9 Posted by KnightRise (4785 posts) - - Show Bio

It's always foggy and chilly but never rainy or snowy! :P Just kidding, I've never been but its one of those places that seems like I might enjoy. How diverse is it?

I don't mind it, though, I wouldn't say I'm fond of living here. Not to sound like a treasonous git, but it all seems rather... grey. It's a perfectly good country, but I guess I like the look of somewhere else, really. I'm hoping to move to Toronto at some point.

I've never been there, but have always wanted to go. I love Monty Python, and most my favorite bands are British post-punk bands from the 80's.

I am always curious if all the uk girls have giant boobs and is it bec of the foods they are eating ? I have great interests in diet and nutrition. In california, I can easily buy in chinese, filipino, japanese, korean, asian indian, hawaiian, fiji, etc. groceries. I prefer vegan food for health.

@Chaos Prime: Depends on what part. I was born in Essex (although I have an Oxford style posh accent lol. No idea how that happened) and there are good parts and bad parts. On the whole England's a pretty good country in my humble opinion it just has some places that aren't so nice but thats pretty much the case everywhere.

Been there twice: Fun place to visit. Could probably live there, but like living in the USA, so I won't. :)

I have no problems with England. I'm happy that they've provided me with tons of entertainment in the form of Sherlock, Doctor Who, James Bond, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Rizzle Kicks.

Wouldn't having any opinion on an entire nation be...chauvinistic?

I can't think of a single accurate statement I could make that would reasonably apply to the whole country. Oh, except: the language? That's pretty swell. Has its flaws, but on the whole it's pretty versatile. If by versatile you mean "perfectly fine with simply stealing words from other languages with alarming frequency."

I'd love to go there because I love lots of British TV shows but now thanks to the internet I can see those anyway.

I went to England once while in the Navy and I can say it's a beautiful country and plenty of hospitable people my only real complaint is the food was horrible IMO...Going from Southern Comfort Food to whatever that was they tried to serve me was almost insulting

#23 Posted by Jorgevy (5114 posts) - - Show Bio

weird question in the wrong part of the forums but okay...

england: great music, great accent, great comedy, it's a democratic monarchy,

but on the other hand it seems to be filled with bad weather

although it has that movie - Love Actually

my favorite christmas romance ever, freaking awesome

so yeah, overall england is pretty nice, I like the turists that visit us here as well, although sometimes brits can be a bit arrogant.... but every culture has it's flaws

Still on my list of places to visit, almost went about 8 years ago.

@Chaos Prime: I'm from Newcastle originally, and to this day think it's one of the friendliest places on Earth. In Glasgow now, which despite it's stigma is also incredibly friendly; people are so polite here I originally thought they were taking the p$%% haha.

Also if you're in London, you should head down to Brighton when it gets warmer, great part of the world (and some great comics stores).

London is too congested for my liking. I loved the countryside though.

Love Glasgow, used to spend at least 2 wkends in the month up there staying in Paisley but poping in2 the city every night for a few pints.

My brother lived in Newcastle for a year near the docks, never had a bad word to say about the place.

Dunno; I had British neighbors, but they were stuck up. I've never had a prolonged conversation with a British person.

It's a good enough place to live. Culturally diverse, economically prosperous (but finding a job might be worrying in this economic climate) and you can't beat British humour. I just don't get American comedy shows.

QFT. I have to get my comics via an online subscription so I'm always a month behind with the titles I choose to read.

I live in England. Everybody complains about the "miserable" weather. But I dislike hot weather. So that's a pro for me!

#42 Posted by comicsauthor (5 posts) - - Show Bio

Apart from the damp climate and an utterly boring game called football, I quite like living here.

I'm Irish so I automatically get a sense of rivalry when England is mentioned.... but really I have no problems.

I love Doctor Who and Harry Potter, and go to Manchester once a year to watch a premier league game.

I've wanted to visit since I was a little guy and I am a huge fan of cold and damp weather (living in Palmdale, CA, the heat and dry get old fast).

#45 Posted by Manbehindthewires (344 posts) - - Show Bio

@Shark_Repellent_Bat_Spray: I read a book once called "The Wrong Kind of Snow" which explained how the entire rise of the British empire was thanks to the varied and "miserable" weather since it cultured our crops and pushed us into agricultural revolution much faster than any other nation, and that we should infact be proud of it. Don't think I've complained about the weather since reading that...

Hah I kind of like the friendly rivalry that goes on between the Irish, English and the Scotts. Can't tell you how much fun it is when we're all in the same room engaging in banter. I've had lots of fun with Irish mates taking the piss and making jokes about me for being English and visa versa. I will say one thing Britain has a very good sense of humor.

England consistently produces the best television programming bar none.

England has the best professional football/soccer league in the world bar none!

When not cheering for the USA National Team I always support England. (In football /soccer)

England has many of the best comics writers of all time.

Ladies with English accents (Queen's, scouser, Cockney, whatever) are the sexiest and most desirable of all IMO.

England has some of the most beautiful countryside and landed estate homes I have ever seen.

One day I hope to be able to travel there. I have even contemplated moving there one day in the future.
