I see trampoline thingies in old cartoons, you know the ones they when there's an emergency jump from a burning building. What if they fall hard enough to bounce back to the top of the building? Anyways...

Having such a crap day, I think I need a holiday. Two of my friends are going to New York next month, lucky sods :(

I know what you mean. It seems like things should get easier near the end of the school year, yet the exact opposite happens... blue-meanie

On a related note, I have always wondered if it would be possible, when you are in an elevator that has lost its cables and is plummetting down like 30 stories, to wait for the last second then jump up into the air -- and thus avoid the impact of the floor hitting bottom...?

 Clever... I don't know if it would work, though.

I saw this answered recently, for the life of me i cannot remember where. It wouldnt make a scrap of difference due to weight distribution and all that happens upon impact under the laws of the universe. You'd still be splattered.

Shakespeare is very boring, yes. We actually had to do a report with questions and godknowswhatelse on Hamlet a few years ago. At first the story seemed intriguing and interesting but if you actually have to spend 6 weeks on a friggin' paper on Hamlet it gets quite boring. Also, I couldn't really understand a lot of that old English. We also did a project on poetry in English class and some of them were even older than Hamlet and that was really hard and I got all frustrated because I didn't understand shit.

There.

 

Also, leaving for London on Monday. Does anyone still have some tips for us? (could be about anything really, but we've already figured out what we want to see)

But Shakespeare isn't boring when The Beatles perform his plays... :D

The only tip I have left is have a great time here. It's a wonderful city and I hope you really enjoy yourself here, and that my earlier advice and tips proof of some use.

Oh, and if you get near a computer, check out that video - it works here! a-hard-days-night-george-10

Don't know if you've already been told this, and I assume you know anyway, but keep a close eye on your stuff wherever you go. I heard on the tv the other day that London is becoming known for pickpockets, which is alarming. Don't want to worry you, but just so you know. Apart from that, enjoy yourself immensely! :)

I got pickpocketed in London about 5 minutes after arriving. Made it a lovely day. That was about 5 years ago. So yes be careful.

I've been to Rome, also known for it's pickpockets. Even my small shithole town is known for pickpockets, so I'm used to keeping my stuff close and safe. 

Oh and I've totally forgotten about everyone's tips. I thought, with my stupid head, that I could remember the numbers of the pages of this thread, but apparently I didn't. I'll try to look for it again.

I'll also check out the video. When I checked it out earlier, I was also on my laptop, but I will check it again.

And thanks everybody!

 

Edit: Still doesn't work. It IS something terratorial, it's been blocked by some Benelux company and..Fashion TV? Dafuq. Anyway, I won't be able to see it.

Speaking of which there are a couple of jokes regarding the notorious pickpockets here.

An expat is revisiting his country. He is using a private jet (a Concorde if you wish). Since he doesn't have a map he decided to use his golden watch as his guide. On his first stop he exposed his watch to the outside environment, it had snow, he thought that he might be in Alaska. On the second stop, he did the same thing but this the watch had sand, he thought he might be in the Middle East. On his last stop he exposed his watch but upon pulling back his watch was gone! Then he thought: "Home sweet Home"

There was also a joke about a robot arresting pick pockets, an expensive state-of-the-art robot.

Upon being assigned to North America, it only took a week to clean the streets. In Japan it only took 3 days, finally it was released in my country, it only took 20 minutes for the robot to be stolen.

Translating jokes is no fun. blue-meanie

There was also a joke a but a frugal man and a rich old man.

The rich old man was sick and in need of rare blood, he searched all over the world for one to donate. In his searching he found the donator, a frugal man. On the first batch of blood donated, the rich old man gave the frugal man half of his entire net worth. On the second batch of blood, he gave the frugal man a quarter of his entire net worth. When he is about to be cured, he only gave the frugal man 2 goats. Now how to end this joke a-hard-days-night-paul-11

I'm really scared. My aunt took my mom to the ER and they just came back. Apparently my mom has blood clots in her legs and it's serious enough that I'm supposed to call the emergency phone number (911 in the US) if she shows any signs of distress.

I'm sorry to hear that Egroeg.  I hope you have friends and/or family to help out (I hope your Aunt can stay with you).  Also I don't know about you, but in that situation I would like to have a clear idea what the medical problem is exactly (even if it may be bad news, it's almost worse not to know and be imagining the worst, and who knows, getting a clear picture may be a relief to know it's not as bad as you thought). I hope it turns it out well.

Sorry to hear that Egroeg.  I agree with Funny Paper, I would rather know what is going on, too.  Then you know what to do and what to look for.  My mom has an aneurism in her brain, has been there for probably about 25 years (she almost had a nervous break down when her and my dad split up and that probably caused it).  It's really dangerous to remove, something like a 70% chance of not making it through surgery.  It's safer to leave it alone, but at least we know what to look for and to go straight to the hospital if it does happen (she lives only a block away, thankfully).
