There's a book to read, apparantly, but seeing as I'm as English as spam fritters, I'm sure I don't need that.

I got 7. I was too lazy to think about some of them. I can't believe ask how much they charge is the answer for the solicitors. Rubbish.

Yeah, exactly, why do you need that in a handbook? How could it be different anywhere else?

"According to Life in the UK, where does Father Christmas come from?"


There was no option for "Asia Minor".


"The British are a nation of animal lovers, says Life in the UK. What must dog owners do? "


Get used to picking up warm doggy poo with a plastic bag over you hand, of course.

The UK introduced the 112 number to help foreign visitors who may not know that 999 is the main emergency number.

Oh, fuck off, how dumb is the UK?

112? Really?

Not 911?

Fuck you, fucking cunts getting it all fucking backwards.

They didn't take them both, they took "112" and "999"..

911 predates 112. Adopt the standards, bitch.

Bob

Can't be, 112 was 799 years before 911

Funko
27-08-2008, 13:38:39
We already had 999

NA should have adopted our standard.

999 - 1937
911 - 1959

22 years.

999 is wickedly stupid on rotatory dial phones and is also too easy to type accidentally.

It's a failed number.

Funko
27-08-2008, 14:01:57
It was designed for rotary dial phones wasn't it.

Partly because it was very hard to dial mistakenly and partly because just a 0 from a payphone indicated a free call (to the operator) and it was easiest to modify the mechanism to allow an initial 9 to be a free call too.
