    Scotland votes today on splitting off from England.

    Will it happen? Should it happen?

    The world breathlessly waits to see, after the end of the day, whether Britain is still without a Wimbledon champion since 1936. :D
  6. That was good.

    A Unicorn.

    No mention of the Bay City Rollers though.

    It will be interesting to see what happens if Scotland breaks away.

    They should do what they want but from the little bit I've read I'd be concerned about what happens to the currency. England has Scotland it wouldn't be able to keep the pound.
  8. If Scotland opts to pull out of the UK does that end the British Open at St. Andrews?

    How could they stop them from using the Pound?

    Panama, Ecuador, and El Salvador use the dollar as their currency, and others simply peg their currency to the dollar.

    Why couldn't Scotland do the same with the Pound?

    I guess it's more that England won't allow for a currency union.

    It isn't even a country yet and the goddamn liberals are already ruining it.

    The Royal and Ancient Golf Club has voted in favour of allowing women members for the first time in its 260-year history.

    Does it really matter once you're wearing a skirt?
