England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland.

Why they were taken off as Kupika location options because Eduardo (American) made a
comment about it in the first place, I don't know.

Why have I suddenly had this thought, you may ask. I'm filling in an application form
right now, and it's giving me the choice between 'English', 'Scottish', 'Welsh', 'Irish'
and 'British'. Why does it do that? Because not everyone identifies as 'British', but
rather their own individual nationality. Now, I don't mind putting British for
something if there's a choice, but it's courteous to allow people to have that choice.

I do NOT want to hear any comments saying I'm ridiculous for thinking this if you
don't come from one of the four places mentioned.

No doubt this will be ignored for several years, so eh. Not urgent, but y'know.
Huge & unnecessary signature gap is huge & unnecessary. :3

Eh, it's all good. But my 2 cents are, if hina did that (wtf's he gone?) he would
probably be nagged by me to put in states for the USA.
Pointless comment is pointless.

Very good and understanding. I believe changes should be made so you can put your
nationality to its perfection.

Have individual states, on the other hand, is a whackjob. Being from New York, I don't
want stupid people sending me messages going, "Hi! U liv n' NY? Tht city is COOL!"
STFU>FO, I live in New York State, not New York City. D< I consider it part of New
Jersey anyway. It gives the rest of New York a bad name.

New York has many more qualities than that dumbass city, like our numerous amounts of
lakes (Finger Lakes, Lake George, Great Sacandaga Lake, etc.), Rivers (Hudson River,
Mohawk River, Erie Canal :], etc.) and mountains/mountain ranges (Adirondacks: Mt. Marcy,
Whiteface Mt., Gray Peak; and Catskills: Slide Mt., Blackhead Mt., West Kill Mt.).

There are also many other historical landmarks in New York which include sites that led up
to American victories in the American Revolution, and other studies like the foundations
of land which harbored Mammoth/Dinosaur and early Human remains.

SO WHAT NOW?

o-o;...

I tried staying on topic. u-u

oh really? I have a vague recollection.

Well since they are technically different countries actually they should be individually
listed. They are only analogous to the States of the U.S. in their union and the freedom
of travel and economy.

I think one reason we could make a distinction and argument for having separate locations
like Wales, Scotland, etc. and not for Alaska, Alabama, etc. is that with the exception of
the original 13 colonies, the rest of the individual states were added to the federal body
of the United States of America whereas Wales, Scotland, etc. have a long history of
independence as nations dealing with other nations and their unionized compact to form the
United Kingdom is relatively recent in their history.

It seems strange to me that there would be an option for British on the form you are
filling out since there are the options for the specific countries which comprise it.

It is a little bit like if we could imagine there was a union of Canada, the U.S.A. and
Mexico and then one wanted to use the term "North American" to distinguish themselves from
peoples from other parts of the world.

Btw, the people of the U.S.A have long ago taken and synonimized the term American as
their own so that for almost  everyone when one says they are American or when they hear
that, it means they are from the U.S.A. but actually the term American can properly apply
to any person from any of the countries in the Americas (North, Central and South).

The term 'American' can be used to establish that of which we are as a whole. Just
because I stated the American Revolution doesn't mean I am talking about just the United
States of America. Yes, Canada is American, Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, Paraguay, etc. What
would have happened had we not conquered Britain in the Revolution? The greatest country
in the world, at the time, would have been even more successful in diminishing our
Colonies, making them out to only be for Profit, as they originally were beforehand. Would
Canada be different? Mexico? Any place in the America's would be very more different than
it is right now. For the better or worse, we will not know. But I for one, understand that
the American way is to have pride in our countries, no matter where they are. Those who
collide with our government do not see this, only hoping that our government is doing what
is right to be American, but that hasn't turned out so well. So for this statement, I
believe that any persons living within America (North, 'Central' or South) is an American,
not considering what country they live in.

To be honest, read it as one all together. You were the one who brought up the States.
And I continued it on.

@your first post, not about any of those either.

Hina needs to accept my new account!

Good point, but OB21 went too far.

I was just predicting the future...

But Hina wouldn't have to put in States because England, Scotland and Ireland are
different countries not counties. Scotland and Ireland have different money
and parliament to England. I guess calling yourself United Kingom-ish is easier. British
doesn't include Nothern Ireland. So maybe it would be better, I mean they are different
countries after all not states.

States are not counties.
I live in Albany county, which is in New York State.
There are 61 other counties, not including mine in my state.
