More Notes on London

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 14 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Dateline London.

Advertisement in general is different. I didn’t feel barraged with crap from companies like I do in the US. When I am assaulted by advertisements, its from someone handing me a pamphlet, which actually quite often. But it’s different because I can readily choose to ignore it.

Also, in the phone booths: advertisements for female escort services, or whatever the heck you want to call them, are everywhere.


Gambling is legal. Even on the Internet.

Extension Cords vs Socket Extenders.

Internet Cafes are slow. At least by my standards.

Internet Cafes are also hot..which makes sense considering how many computers some of them have. It really does feel like a server room.

Cold vs Chilled.
Example: Cold beverages vs. Chilled beverages.

Strollers vs. Push Chairs

Cash Registers vs. Tills

And they call / a stroke, instead of a slash (or a whack).

  1. Internet Cafes slow? What speed are you used to at home, most of London has at least 8Mb and some areas have up to 50Mb.
    Also, only the retards in the UK call / a stroke. Most normal ppl do indeed call them a slash or backslash, although I have heard them being called oblique.
    Anyway, hope u had a good time and the London underground is pretty nice yea
