More thoughts about London
They should bring back hanging for buskers who play the fucking bagpipes despite the fact that they suck at playing said instrument in Tube stations.

Same goes for people who fart in your face on the trains. It's bad enought to have some stranger's arse in your face when sitting on a crowded tube train, but to have to endow a direct blast... :puke:

A hand-pumped pint of Fuller's goes good with Fish and Chips

If the statues at the British Museum are any indication, Men in ancient Greece were not that well-endowed.

Aphroditie had a nice pair.

The ancient Egyptians had it right. Cats are Gods. That explains thier behaviour.

When HM the Queen was younger, her face looked a lot like one of my ex-girlfriends.

Right, I don't care if that's how the Greeks and Romans did it, but riding a horse bareback in the nude is not my idea of a fun time, it's my idea of inflicting severe trauma to one's happy sack.

Right, arseing about Trafalgar Square in an old Model T truck that blows bubbles and has a loudspeaker through which you sing bad karaoke is not going to make me more likeley to hire your handyman service.

When I walked past the gates to 10 Downing Street, I felt an aura of someone who is the Diet Coke of Evil.

So many shops here are closed on Sunday. Unheard of back in the States, especailly in high tourist areas.

I did find the TKTS booth In Liecester Square, now I can hope they have half price Spamalot tickets Next weekend.

2. Nice to see you've discovered real ale!
Although central London ain't the best place if you want a decent pint I must admit. (especially given the prices down there!)

As to Bagpiping buskers, well I have to say that the chances are that the problem there is the fact that it's the bagpipes and the bagpipes suck.

3. Visited there way back in'84 and was just wondering
I had the time of my life, but, have they figured out how to make a freaking SALAD yet? I swear I didn't see lettuce for 2 weeks.
