a guide to uk cities for foreign people

  • manchester: gays. you will probably get mugged.
  • liverpool: like manchester, but less gay. you will definitely get mugged.
  • newcastle: probably quite good for canadians as exists in permafrost and has never left the 90s.
  • leeds: it's a lot cheaper than london
  • bradford: leeds but awful
  • nottingham: gun death capital of the uk!
  • derby: intense rivalry with nottingham, literally no one else in the country or world gives any fucks about this.
  • hull: violently resist anyone who attempts to take you here
  • leicester: i'm not sure this is a real place
  • york: this is an illustration from the top of a christmas biscuit assortment
  • birmingham: NO.
  • brighton: more gays. is only a pretend city. mild to moderate chance of mugging. contains some deeply annoying hippies. basically if san francisco was british.
  • portsmouth: there is literally nothing here.
  • southampton: exactly the same as portsmouth but smells of off milk
  • bristol: you have a 1 in 10 chance of ending up in a bbc recording. everyone sounds like a farmer or bob marley.
  • cardiff: you have a 1 in 5 chance of ending up in a bbc recording, and a 1 in 3 chance of being glassed.
  • plymouth: post apocalyptic wind tunnel full of drunk sailors pissing on depressed hookers. do not enter.
  • penzance: everyone here is from london now.
  • london: no one from london is actually from london and even breathing is expensive.
  • cambridge: windy and full of equal amounts of homeless drug addicts and public schoolboys. the junkies are nicer.
  • oxford: same number of cunts as cambridge but easier to escape from due to all-night bus to london
  • edinburgh: a goth turned into a city. basically london but slightly more scottish.
  • glasgow: it is impossible to tell whether people are angry or happy.
  • aberdeen: las vegas at the point when vegas starts crying uncontrollably
  • belfast: do not order "an irish car bomb" OR "a black and tan" here.
  • wolverhampton: really, really don't.
  • norwich: count people's fingers. mutations walk here.
  • coventry: like plymouth, bombed flat in ww2. like plymouth, failed to take the hint. like plymouth: do not alight here.

The reward for the effort required to reach the ends of the earth is often the simple satisfaction of being there by yourself. People seldom travel beyond civilization. It’s a pity, since being alone in these barren destinations makes us feel our surroundings so acutely. When we can stand in the solitary presence of something magnificent, the obligation of sharing the experience evaporates, and we are free to truly be a part of it. Though we are insignificant in comparison, rarely in these moments do we feel overwhelmed. It’s not about power. Whatever energy makes up this awe-inspiring world is the same stuff that courses inside all of us. These are the moments that reconnect us to our innate dignity.
I slowly close my eyes, reflecting on my position and imagining a bird’s-eye view of our tents receding skyward as the panorama widens. I can see the last white smoke from the chimney rise up, and the desert around us stretching for more than a thousand miles. My mind’s eye backs all the way up through the clouds as the curvature of the continent comes into frame. Ulaanbaatar, Beijing, Seoul, and Tokyo, lit up like so many suns. And with the earth now in full frame, I can still imagine our little tents, countless miles below, perched in the empty expanse.
I open my eyes. I’m shaking cold but alive. Utterly alive.

The Hotel Fox in Copenhagen, Denmark was created as part of Volkswagen’s world premiere of their new car held in Copenhagen. 21 young designers were given carte blanche to show off their talent and the result is a unique lifestyle hotel concept in the Danish capital. Creating a surreal world, from the most bizarre to the most provocative.

Walls to oor are covered with drawing, paintings, catchy taglines, photography from street art to manga, illustration to pop art. Mexicans boxers, appealing geishas, childish cars drawn on the wall, to girly dolls, from military camouage to geometric patterns, the 61 rooms cover a wide range of aesthetics.

Now THIS is how you should advertise a country!

Iceland, why do you do everything right? I am coming to you in a flying machine.

Why is this so adorable?

Watch out for that dog, guy.

SOOOO CUUUUUTE

This is adorable! I also love that they make sure to feature visitors/travelers from all over the world visiting Iceland. Did I spot a family of East Indians in that summer picnic scene? Or blacks watching the choir girls? And some Asians dancing in front of that guyser?  Iceland wants us to know they love travelers from all over the world to visit them!

brb going to iceland

I could try to vote for shit-candidates, I could fight all this hate, I could try… FUCK IT, I’M GOING TO ICELAND! FUCK IT, I’M GOING TO ICELAND! BYE-BYE!

(song in background)

Excellent.

WE’RE NUMBER O… um… number… hmm. Let me get back to you on that one…

We need big infrastructure projects supported by some semblance of a working government so we can innovate on a large scale. 

In fairness, our Acela doesn’t look like that dinosaur on the bottom right. It actually looks really sleek. But it breaks down a lot, is the thing.

also: passenger trains are stupid expensive for being, in essence, really slow planes

Not necessarily!
In China, for example, passenger trains are much, much cheaper than air travel (and sometimes even bus travel, depending on the distance). The reason why they’re so expensive in the states is because there’s a much lower demand for trains here (since everyone seems to prefer planes for their speed), to the point where some cities only get one train per day.
If the railway system in the states is actually taken seriously and a lot more people utilize them, the prices could potentially go down by a lot.
Unless the railway companies are anything like gas companies, then I don’t know.
