I do know the difference.

But, admittedly, I didn't bother to know for sure until I became active here and had to put up with interact with UKers daily.

Most of the people in the UK don't know the difference between the UK, Great Britain and the British Isles, let alone people outside of it.

I'm not sure, but before I google it I'd like to make a fool of myself. UK is England and...Scotland? Great Britain is like all the countries up there?

Hopefully I bust the myth that 'murica is the only nation bad at geography.

The UK is England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
Great Britain is England, Scotland and Wales
The British Isles is England, Scotland, Wales and all of Ireland.

Just to clear it up for everyone.

The UK is the only political name up there. The other two are geographical names.

Yes, because I once grouped an Irish UGer into a joke I made about the UK. He bitched me out pretty hard.

Nope, the whole of Ireland is considered part of the British Isles.

"The British Isles are a group of islands off the north-western coast of continental Europe that include the islands of Great Britain, Ireland and over six thousand smaller isles."

Yep, The Government of Ireland does not recognise or use the term and its embassy in London discourages its use. As a result, Britain and Ireland is used as an alternative description.

And outside of Ireland, no one gives a shit. It's ALL the British Isles.

I still use a sundial.

Which is a shame because it's always cloudy and raining.

I know it was half past 3 about 5 years.

The stereotype you've got from Family Guy is English, not British. Britain is made of 3 different countries.
