    Unhappy London.

    London smells.

    It's scary. It kinda has the atmosphere of an American city, too many people looking at you, too many people. I'm scared, I miss my girlfriend and there are too many kebab shops, if there was like a war and London was under siege, we'd just all die out from kebab poisoning. Plymouth is peaceful, I like plymouth.

    help me

    Quick, come to Michigan! There's almost no people, and I promise, you will never ever say there's too much going on!

    I agree with you, Brian. Plymouth is very nice. Have been there last summer.
    But it doesn´t make much sense to compare Plymouth with London.

    Y'know, if I wasn't so busy enjoying my next to last day of work, I'd come to Nashville and kick your sorry tail... Preds vs. Wings tomorrow at the Joe... MUHAHAHAHA!!! They'll never leave alive!

    I suppose that's the only way the Wings can beat a hack job of a team (my apologies to Barry Trotz). How does one of the original six get forced into overtime by a mediocre AAA high school team like the Predators?

    Being one of the original six doesn't guarantee a good team (look at the Habs... why the hell are they called the Habs, anyways?)...

    Nashville got lucky - that's all there is to it

    Seems I've answered my own question... (found on the official "Habs Suck" page)

    Sounds like Habs is short for "Habitants du Quebec", or some other French nonsense... The site's author goes on to say it's akin to calling the Bruins "Residents of Massachusetts".

    Agreed, London is a tad overpowering at times... in fact most of the time. Though the hustle, bustle etc is quite a welcome change for a person such as myself (a Londoner originally) who's spent the overwhelming majority of her life living in the middle of the British countryside...

    ...nice though it is, there's only so much one can take of faultless landscapes, rolling fields of wheat swaying in the gentle summer breeze and various species of livestock grazing peacefully before it all starts to get slightly tedious and you would kill for a taste of over-crowded streets, expensive shopping and unbearable noise once in a while. Baa.

    You could always come to good ole Tallmadge, Ohio; directly to the northeast of Akron. It also borders Cuyahoga falls, where Amish people in horse drawn carriages always slow traffic.

    ah, london. I've never been there, but I have seen "The Eastenders" on PBS, and everybody talks way too freaking fast. It's like they all have semi automatic vocal chords.
