British Character
The British people are great lovers of gardens, dogs and horses. Their devotion to animals and gardening is a tradition that is rooted not only in their own souls but in the minds of the rest of the world too. Animals are not only loved but protected by law. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) was established in 1824, more than half a century before its national counterpart for the prevention of cruelty to children (1884). Nowhere in the world cats and dogs are so deeply cared for as in Britain. An Englishman is almost always likely to share his pet’s sympathies and antipathies. If a host’s dog shows dislike to one of his guests the latter will be treated with suspicion. If anyone leaves a cat to starve in an empty house while the owner goes for his holiday, he can be sent to prison. There are special dogs’ cemeteries and monuments in the country and a «Birds Hospital» in Cornwell. The British celebrated the 150th anniversary of the RSPCA by printing special stamps......
The British people are the world’s greatest tea drinkers. They drink a quarter of all the tea grown in the world each year. Tea is the national beverage. Many of the British drink tea on at least 8 different occasions during the day. In a British home there is the early morning cup of tea, tea at breakfast, tea at 11 o’clock in the morning, tea at lunch; there is tea for tea, tea for supper and then the last thing at night is tea.
One of the points, which is difficult for foreigners to understand, is the English sense of humour. This is perhaps the most fundamental trait the British have in common. It is an ironic sense of humour which lends itself to self-caricature. «He is a man of humour» or «He has no sense of humour» is often heard in Britain, where humour is so highly prized.

Universities and Science in Scotland
Between 1411 and 1594 Scotland established four universities, at St. Andrews, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Edinburgh (when England had but two - Oxford and Cambridge).
Although the 15th century saw the founding of the three of the universities, it produced no scientific men of note. Then in 1614 appeared the «the wonderful rule of logarithms» of John Napier which made possible computations hitherto undreamed of. It placed in the hands of calculat...
All these long-established institutions will continue to play their part in Scotland’s scientific endeavour. In recent years there has been a growing realization of the practical value in industry of a scientific background. This has led to a greater demand for the training of youth in the universities and schools of applied science with the specialization which makes it possible for one person to be a scientific know-all. Planned research by teams of scientific workers has become imperative.
Cultural institutions and societies are a prominent feature of Scottish life.
