I went on exchange to Scotland but am now back living in Canada. In my computer science class we had to write a program that could sort countries based on they currency. The list for countries on the pound was: "Britain, Scotland, and Ireland".

It was painful

Isn't that an awesome video? We've posted it on our blog, as well. One can only hope that visitors to you in person will have watched it.

I felt so sorry for Donald Knuth when he was giving a lecture at Glasgow Uni a few weeks ago. He's a brilliant guy (in computer science), has won all sorts of awards, etc. But he kept referring to England and the English. It was painful.
