    Is that supposed to be a general UK accent (type of thing), because it does border on a Yorkshire accent. Crap if it meant general UK.

    Do you just watch Geoff Boycott videos in US or something to pick up an idea like that?
    Such is life.

    >>> Geoff Boycott videos in US

    Nope!. At least not with any understanding anyway.

    Adrian is right about the museums.... the science museum is the best of the lot. A lot of exhibits that offer some sort of user interaction.

    And yeah our petrol prices suck ass. Taxation on fuel is ridiculous here. Buy a bike.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
