Whats this got to do with the UK? If anything the UK is more mixed than any other country on our technology.

The only thing the UK is mad on is Football and as for some reason people in the UK cant see any other sport even though there are better ones to support in this country.

It is obviously not the UK, the sun is shining.

Oh and we don't use dollars

Nevertheless I still can't stop laughing how this went down.
