I've o nly seen it once, and I didn't know what was going on. Everything else I've heard about it was from HGttG (I got tired of typing out Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, so this is the last time).

I've been to England before. Loved it. Sure, London was awesome, and we saw all the typical tourist sites. (Stonehenge, British Museum, Westminster Abbety, Prime Meridian, etc.)

But my fondest memories are from the days we spent at Herstmonceux castle. (Well, actually the place right next to it. Not sure what you'd call it--I know students stayed at.) Dang, that was an awesome place. Really let us see some of the great behind-the-scenes stuff of England that you don't really get to see in London or the other big cities.

I don't get the tourist obsession with London - after you go shopping there once it gets boring twice because you've been everywhere (but you can never buy anything good because it's all horrendously overpriced).  Give me Munich or Rome over London anyday.

Ooh, you pleased about the draw with Ireland?  They're quite a good side so yeah.  Israel have a great chance of qualifying actually (World Cup) - good luck against France... they're not all that good.

 I don't post often, but I'm from England. Liverpool in fact, the scumiest city after Manchester. Although now we've been give Capital of Culture 2008, the city is getting cleaned and is starting to look like Manchester City Centre. It's horrible, also we're building the ugliest building ever on the Mersey water front. It's a building in the shape of an asteroid it's so ugly.
 Anyway enough about England it's crap, I'm just working at the moment so I can leave and go to Thailand. I'ld love to live in Canada or Australia though, they seem to be the best country's to live.

Yeah Liverpool is a right dump.  I hated it when i went there and the people are generally thieving little bindippers (sorry but it's true - car got keyed, house i was staying at got broken into, teenagers were much more rowdy than down South) - never ever going there again.

Football is crap!

*Gets killed*
Football is great, unless you are using it in the Western way, I hate American Foot ball, I love Soccer(football)
I am British by blood.

I was fortunate enough to get to spend my junior year of college in London studying theatre.  Gamed a lot.  Hung out in subways and watched the Buskers while reading.  I really loved being able to walk around everywhere.  Being an American, especially one from Tennessee makes me long for a (somewhat) efficient form of public transportation.  I also miss the sausages.  Aside from that, I spent my childhood in Nigeria which isn't European but somewhat Anglophonic so I thought I'd mention it.  Missionary parents.  I am very white although technically an African American.  -leeman

Football, Football and Soccer are for people with weak, manipulatable minds.

I'm Australian, but my mother's side is British so I guess it makes me what? Half-British?

Wouldn't mind going to England, for a while, but then I wouldn't mind going anywhere different for a while.

Melbourne's an okay place to live, but I really want to go to Canada for a while, I've heard such good things.

fun fact: Melbourne used to be nicknamed Smelbourne for all the sewrege.
