    I'm guessing that association also might be due to a the whole 'knowing what you're talking about thing' -- rather than, say, having the majority of your English history come from RSC teleplays from the 70s.

    It's very brave of you to fight this heroic rearguard action on a soccer messageboard.

    Just on the point of how violent different countries are my guess is that the UK and USA are probably about the same. I can't find it now but I seem to remember a study back in the early noughties that went through crime types and what actually happened, (as opposed to stats... they looked at the way crimes are reported too), in various countries and that was the conclusion.

    If people really think that Britain is a place with little to no violence may I suggest they stand in the stands at Old Trafford in the middle of the yanited supporters on a Saturday afternoon and cheer for the other side. :D

    Come to that go to most town centres late on a Saturday night and take a peek at what goes on.

    I recall that England had more random violence and "mayhem" (a great word) than the US where we tend to settle things - like someone dropping dog turds on the front porch - with a gun. It's good you lot don't have guns. There'd be a red streak down the Thames each morning.

    That's how you name a kid after his father nowadays. My sister in law has a kid in her class named Semaj.
