    Yep. Yet another reason why I'm pro-retroactive birth control.

    That's the least surprising part of this. Florida has all the best stupid stories

    Any suggestions for things to do in London? My wife and I are going for the first time on Friday and will have just three days. We prefer to avoid overly touristy things with long lines and inflated prices.

    My friend is a brit national. His work sends him back to London five times a year. He and I both love The Who, especially Quadrophenia and the Mod scene.

    I've no interest in tourist traps and typical sightseeing either, so I'd check out Carnaby Street if I were you. It's one of the last parts of London that hasn't been compromised, Islamified, criminalized, or homogenized into something that looks NOTHING like old Britain or London of the last two centuries.

    This is a decent site to use as a guide ...

    idk but St Pauls cathedral and Westminster abbey are pretty amazing places to visit
    i would feel like i missed something if i didn't walk through the tombs at the abbey
    Victoria station is a great big train station of incredible proportions and maybe you would want to catch a train to say York minster?
    lots of cool cities within reach of a day trip

    Maybe we'll get lucky and not have huge crowds.

    Oh, absolutely! I love the old churches and ruins and castles and the like. I know those count as 'touristy' but I go not to snap pictures and act like an ugly American; I go to remain silent, observant, and absorb the history. As a guy who never shuts up most days, an eight-hundred-year-old abbey in Scotland is a good way to get me to STFU for an hour.

    Don't go anywhere else while in London...just stay in one of the greatest cities on the face of the earth. There are tourist traps in every destination in the world pretty much, but it all depends on your interests as a couple.
    Pretty.much some of the finest museums in the world. The Tate. The RAF museum. Bomber Command. Fighter Command. Transportation museum..awesome! British Natural History. Covent Garden.
    Go to Harrods - your wife will love it. Imperial War Museum. If you're not acrophobic, ride the London Eye.
    If you want a side trip...Brighton. Stonehenge.
    See the White Cliffs of Dover...go to pubs and meet the people...probably the experience you'll cherish most, ultimately.
    If you get to the East End, give my regards, please, and get to the pub built where they hanged Edward Teach.
    And whenever you go...stay off the moors.

    One hell of a flick...for many reasons. Not the least of which is the Marcels singing "Blue Moon", a flight of fancy for me bringing me back to my do wop days on the corner...and the lovely, luscious, under rated Jenny Agutter, a true Brit treasure.
    I would Carousel with her anytime...

    Edinburgh is one of the places i'd like to go back to
    not really one for castles but that place is an exception
    only 3 days so no way that can be done from London
    i mean it could but its way too much travel just to turn around

    Oh, forgot...take the Victoria line to last stop, NE London, and walk the Walthamstow High Street outdoor market.
    Buy something that just fell off a lorry the day before. Cheap.

    Appreciate the suggestions, but wasn't Blackbeard killed somewhere off the Carolina coast?
