    Default British People on PD

    ...which as far as I know, only consists of Hicky and Eve, I think...

    Anyway, I'm seriously considering going to London to get my undergraduate degree. Can you guys just chat about random London-y things so that I get a clearer pic of it?

    MOST IMPORTANTLY. How cold is it over there? In degree celcius? I just about freeze to death at anything under 21 degree celcius. I've taken to wearing triple jackets to work lately. How cold is it in the summer, and how much colder is it in the winter? And when the heck is summer and winter anyway? Which months?

    Oh and are there a lot of Asian haters there? I know that some peeps in London are pretty radical.

    "What else?" said the secretary.

    it's pretty cold
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    It's warm in London generally, it's cold in the North and in Scotland. It gets pretty cold in Winter but nothing serious.

    I don't know what you mean by chat about a 'random London-y' thing.

    I always had the impression that it keeps raining in London.

    Talk about crumpets and scones.

    I have the impression that London is like the British version of New York since it keeps getting attacked by aliens.

    I'd say that gentlemen serial killers are the best thing about London. Jack the Ripper is such a cool London-related thing.

    I'm pretty sure London is the city that appears in literature the most, other than maybe Paris.

    Spring Heeled Jack, though he was never a serial killer.
