Why do you americans have this obsession with fog in England? I saw more fog/mist in California in 2 weeks than I see in a year over here. I think you've been watching too many Sherlock Holmes movies. Maybe you're thinking of the smog of the early 20th century, caused by pollution. Either way, it's a myth these days.
I've been there (London) twice, each time for about two weeks, and all I can recall is that it was always gray without a cloud in the sky. May just be weird luck, I don't know, or maybe that there's even a brand name called "London Fog", who knows? (I think we even purchased some London Fog trench coats from Harrod's while we there...
We are and you just proved it, last I checked, Loch Ness was in Scotland, part of Great Britain.
You used the informal Britain vs. Great Britain, so I thought you meant England more, but yeah, I'll grant you that it's part of the U.K. Just that you have so many damn names for the place, instead of just one.
Wow, you really aren't very good at this geography (or history, it seems). Tolkein was inspired by the areas surrounding Birmingham, UK in the descriptions of The Shire and other areas whilst writing The Hobbit and TLOTR.
Regardless of the inspiration, it's a FICTIONAL place, so you're claiming what makes Britain so great is a fictional place? That's like claiming Antarctica is great because of Superman's house being there!
