After 6 years, I have made it back to the UK, and more specifically the north. The trains, the tiny train stations, it is exactly as I remembered it-fucked up and seriously ill designed, poorly executed with no one wondering if, now after 200 years of the Industrial Revolution, can we please have hot and cold taps coming from one spout, thereby mixing the temperature!!
For fuck's sake people, a nation gets up in the morning, burns their left hand and freezes their right.....?

Anyone? Aidez-moi! This is just the beginning.

On the plus side, in six years some of the major technological marvels include...um,...ice cubes, yes, there are ice cubes! Everywhere, why they even advertise beer (admittedly cider) with ice cubes in it.
