    Ah, I see. Don't underestimate how much the ideas of being European and the EU are intertwined though, I would bet for a large number of people this would be the thing that causes them to think like that(although there is also an island mentality thing, people like that tend to get called "little englanders" and this is more a xenophobic thing).

    Though anyone thinking we're not European is kidding themselves.

    What Rumsfeld mockingly called "old europe".

    Europe is a pretty neat orderly Continent compared to most of the rest.

    My point being that Englands main ancestry comes from western europe for the last few hundred years. Not eastern.

    Side note: using a shit map from wikipedia makes you look like an oaf. Have you ever thought about the eastern countries that have only joined europe recently?

    Unfucking likely...

    Virtually every language in Europe is in the Indo-European family with only three major families within being widespread, you're religously practically all Christian with a few pockets of Islam that are a result of external imperialism and are thus not even indigenous, physically you are very homogenous, climate wise you exist in a similar world, living standards run a fairly similar ballpark in the grand scheme of things, and your history is one of constant interaction with eachother.

    Europe is so neat a continent that it's honestly ridiculous that similar regions like the Indian sub-continent aren't given the same status.

    I thought Azerbaijan was both an European and Asiatic country? Aren't Azerbaijan and Russian the two countries that cross the Caspian Sea, thus being both European and Asiatic?

    That's what I heard, I don't really have geography as my job like you, though, only slightly interested on it, so I may be wrong

    We're still European though.

    Despite Murdoch's campaign to the contrary.

    It should've been Armenia as the Euro-Asiatic nation, I believe. Hard to say with all the different ethnic groups and "tribes" around there. I'll leave this to Zephos. He knows the facts better than I do.

    The Ural and Caucasus mountains are generally considered the boundaries of Europe. Georgia and Armenia are occasionally thrown into the Europe category for having a bunch of cultural similarties (mainly Christianity) though this is more true of Georgia then Armenia.

    Azerbaijan is a piece of Persia that Russia took away 200 or so years ago, the Azeris are Turkic peoples that follow Shia Islam. They're Asian as fuck.

    i respectfully but wholeheartedly disagree. i'm from Southeast Asia as well, and i am surrounded daily by people who have a decent command of English and can speak the language fluently with no trouble at all. with all due respect, please avoid making general statements about many different types of people who come from different backgrounds and environments. i am in no way judging those who have a poor command of English -- i might as well handcuff myself for not being able to draw a stick figure.

    Thus we are either western europeans or dubbed as old europe. Its like treating north and south america as one, when severals aspects of the two clearly show a difference.

    If counties like Turkey weren't in the equation then it would be pretty straightforward. I know it sounds anal, but I refuse to recognise some of these countries as european when they are both culturally and religiously bonded to the middle east.

    At this rate Iraq will be considered european. lol
