The one-offs that make Edinburgh brilliant
Frequency, wit or plain oddness have been our – admittedly not quite scientific – criteria for filtering your nominations for the world's most boring places. And, when it comes to frequency, one place, unfortunately, sticks out like a suntanned limb at a winter's tea party in Scunthorpe.
And, yes, that place is Britain. Not just part of it: the isles as a whole. The British populace is not, by our poll, the most patriotic bunch. Forget the reams of poetry extolling the beauty of this land: many of you think we should just pull the plug.
"The dullest place on this planet must be the UK," says one user, Tony Ham. "Grey sky, expensive and just dull."
Boyvader agrees: "After 30 years of travel, I'm afraid to say the UK is the worst [country]. It's cold, grey, violent and the population is completely controlled by the media."
"Pubs and clubs are the culture. That says it all," says another non-UK fan. Yet another asks: "What were the Romans and Vikings thinking of?"

This is so wrong. Canada is not only beautiful and cultural, we have many amusements for children as well as adults. Toronto Vancouver Montreal and Ottawa. Ottawa has Winterlude and the longest skating rink in the world. At Winterlude you will also see ice sculptures, Jacques Cartier Park in Gatineau just across the river offers fun for the whole family. We have Niagara Falls with so much history there and lots of amusements for the kids including hotels with water parks inside. Rocky Mountains wow; take the train through the Rockies and you will see sheer beauty. Quebec City is full of culture and history and is fun for kids. Look for an outdoor oven that bakes homemade bread and maple butter artists row etc. etc. The Maritimes are exciting and very family oriented so you would find things to do.
Our country is wondeerful and I am so happy I grew up in this country with all the culture and history from coast to coast
