Countryside? What is that? My birthplace was a city, I was brought up in a city, I live and work in a city. In short, the countryside scares me. All that open space and silence makes me uncomfortable and uneasy. I start thinking about security issues, about arming myself, about placing CCTVs everywhere and circling my place of residence with an electrified fence.

No mate you got it all wrong, have you ever walked along a beach in the middle of the day naked while having a wank?

That's what the countryside is about, freedom!

If you want to give up that freedom for the illusion of safety then carry on breathing that sweet city air.

This is starting to remind me of how Septics always say the state or country where somewhere is in a news report. Paris is the biggest offender, as they are usually talking about some top politico or Frog culture, usually framed in shot next to the Eiffel Tower and yet they still fucking wrap up with "Maria Smith, in Paris, France."

Have news broadcasters in the States been sued by people who live in some shithole in Kansas called Paris or something?

The picture is apparently God flooding the world or something, the source? America, North America.

What irritates me most is that they do that, but then when it comes to somewhere in the US, just the state will do. That's acceptable in American media, but not somewhere which is ostensibly supposed to be international, like Wikipedia. Do they do the same with other federal republics like Brazil or Germany? I'm sure.

I think it's in their culture to just add the region after every single place name. When it isn't part of a state in the US or a region they've heard of, they'll just add the country after.

It's why you get septics on Wikipedia trying to rename pages things like "Durham, County Durham" or "Cambridge, England" because they just don't understand that that just isn't how it works here.

To be fair, it isn't their culture it just makes perfect sense to do this, at least in all cases where the context doesn't automatically point you to the right place.

In America there is repetition of place names over the entire country as well as many places with the same name as places in Britain. Really it isn't just their culture or their particular way of doing things, it's a necessity.

In America, it's common parlance to follow the name of the city with the name of the state. For example, one would more likely hear "I'm from Fargo, North Dakota" than "I'm from Fargo".

When referring to cities in countries that don't follow the rules in that way, they follow with the name of the country. Hence you'll always hear "London England" than just London, or "Paris France" than just Paris.

The only places that this doesn't happen is with placenames that are both unique and recognisable such as New York, or Moscow.

Town X, County X is what they do in the Daily Mail at the moment. But they seem to be odd in what they do as county X for example sometimes it is Orpington, Kent but other times it'll be Orpington, London.
The BBC do Town X, County X as well sometimes and did a weird one recently when they wrote Newcastle, Northumbria then it got me thinking of what else they could have written examples include: Newcastle, Tyneside, Newcastle, Northumberland, Newcastle, Tyne and Wear or just Newcastle-upon-Tyne and then there is no under lyme ambiguity.

Not in situations where a person could realistically be from London, Ontario; no.

It's not particularly odd. Orpington is in the London Borough of Bromley, Greater London. This wasn't always the case. It was part of Kent before it became subsumed by the London Government Act in 1965. People don't like change and are especially resistant to government diktats. Living in Bromley, I get the impression that a lot of people just don't know and continue doing as they always have in writing Kent as part of their address. They're even less likely to know that Royal Mail dropped counties from official addresses in 2010.

It's odd because they are not consistent not because Orpington used to be in Kent.

It hasn't been Newcastle, Northumbria since around 954, and at the time it would have been Monkchester, Northumbria anyway, so I don't know why the hell they picked that one.
