Please answer my question, does the UK consider Eurasia to be a continent?

Were you born in a country that considers America to be continent? Where you educated in a school that teaches America is a continent?

If "America" is not considered a continent, and only "North America" is, then howcome its not the "United States of North America"?

Honest question.

Honest question.
Who said a country name has to include a continent name?

This is NOT a thread about Europe, Asia, Latin America etc.............if you want to discuss that then please do so on another thread but don't hijack this one.

I love visiting the US. It has such incredible diversity and I have always found Americans very polite, welcoming, helpful, and generous. Often people who have never been to the US confuse Americans themselves with their foreign policy and it's a bad rap that Americans don't deserve. I certainly wouldn't mind living there for a few months but I am far to accustomed to my Canadian lifestlye and society that I think I would find the transition a bit difficult.

Australia is indeed a "lucky" country and a great one but I think the lack of social variety there would leave me rather bored. Geographically it is certainly diverse but it's society is basically the same no matter where you go. You don't get the huge regional difference in language, culture, history etc that you get in Canada.

My choice would be:

1) US
2) Canada
3) Australia

Canada would be first if it had better weather For some reason I've never found Australia appealing. The accent gets on my nerves very quickly so hearing it all around me would be torture, lol.
