Fair enough. Throw stuff at David Blaine from wherever you are. It doesn't matter if you hit him, just make the effort.

To be fair, some sort of rifle is possibly better than throwing 'crap' at him.

>>> Visit british museum

I think the British Museum is one of the most boring tourist "attractions" in London. If you want to go to museums, the Natural History Museum, and the Science Museum are much more interesting, the Victoria and Albert as well if you like that kind of thing.

Well, I remember you saying you are NE.

So, Manchester is not TOO hard to reach-lots of good museums and attractions there. Or why not take a hop into Scotland-it is on your doorstep :)

Good luck in the UK Vasanth :) I suggest you to absorb as much as you can of the English cuture, try to get close to it, it will be in a experience. There are two ways to travel, on the outside and on the inside :) focus on the outside for now =]]

Find a good pub. And speak a bit quieter. I find we speak at a lower volume than Americans.

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? :D

British people sound like the orcs from Lord of The Rings (two towers, scene where the orcs who captured the hobbits stop for a "breather"). Honest.

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.
