I missed all the "What do you think of..." threads. ;D
I'm American. Ha! Another one responding.
I'd love to visit a lot of these countries. Canada, Britain, Australia, and (though not mentioned, I think) France. I really love language, so accents amaze me. I've always been disappointed in mine. What's worse than Southern American? (Off subject: with France, I just really love the language. xD I took French I in year 8 and am planning on taking a course a year until French V in senior year.) However, my one pet peeve with British English (right term? probably not...) is s's where z's go in American English. generalize/generalise. I know which came first, but this is how I was taught to spell. Plus, it makes the [z] sound. ;D
Weather seems to be a lot of people's issues, but I actually would enjoy it. I used to live in Las Vegas, NV (and I still visit), and I hated the heat. I love cool weather and like cold weather well enough.
I love me some British humor. Monty Python is hilarious, of course (I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!). But my all-time favorite might have to be Wallace and Gromit (It's just a bit of...harmless brain alteration, that's all). I do love books, and one of my top authors is definitely Douglas Adams (The World Wide Web is the only thing I know of whose shortened form — www — takes three times longer to say than what it's short for).
Government-wise I have no qualms. The set-up of the UK and which kingdoms are united and whatnot took me a while to get (pathetic, yeah), but other than that, it's all fairly simple. Having both a prime minister and a monarch, again, threw me for a bit, but I understand it (for the most part) now. I do prefer the distinct separation of powers between the legislative and executive branches we have here in the US. But, again, that's probably just because it is how I was raised.
Of the people, I really don't hear many stereotypes. The only prevalent one I ever really know of is bad teeth. C'mon, America! That's pretty weak compared to our stereotypes. Then again...we meet most of ours. ;D
