You're not getting away with that one without meeting up with some of us Brit coscom-ers. London is a totally great place to visit.

Bloody hell! ...there's only been 6 murders in London this year?

I thought there were squillions in urban areas.

Because approximately 90% of all movies ever made take place there? Probably not. They're probably just pleased that it turned out better than old York. That place sucks.

I've been to the US a couple of times before - once to Orlando, Florida and once to San Francisco, but I've always fancied New York. Times Square and all that jazz. Orlando was cool because roller coasters, but pretty boring otherwise.
Hey, York quite a nice city. When you can understand what the locals're saying.

New York is a great city.

I lost one of my favorite wool fingerless gloves there when I was 16.

It made me very sad.

I plan on seeing who's around and down for hitting up a pub or something like that! I just wanted to get our dates set before making a general announcement, but I'm thinking it's going to be early to mid September of next year. I AM EXCITED, I AM GOING TO DRESS UP AS DOCTOR WHO AND SING BEATLES SONGS AND MARRY LOKI!

That's my impression of Tumblr btw. Where they've managed to turn England into the new Japan in terms of pop-culture annoyance.

I think I lost it when I stuffed my gloves into my pockets and it fell out :| they where really great gloves.

It was on the same trip we saw The Producers and the actor made a quip about the orange walkways that where set up throughout Central Park and how no one got the artistic message it was meant to send.

I can't think of a nicer way of saying that.
Okay, so name some other place that's the cultural center of the universe. I would really love to hear your suggestions.

I approve of this change.

In other news: Racist old people scramble to come up with a racial slur when they can't tell Puerto Ricans to 'go back to your own country'.

I read a great suggestion - when Puerto Rico is admitted to the Union, instead of having to change our flag, we should just kick out one of the other states. Right now I'm really leaning towards Florida.

Right now I am leaning towards everything between California and Michigan.

Every city in the world has it's own appeal, I would love to go to Dubai, that place looks fantastic and you can't deny that.

My knowledge of US stuff is a little limited and I presume this is due to elections ---- but I'd have thought that would be Texas before!

Nah. Arizona needs to go. Florida's BAD, but we can just hand it over to Disney and have them run it.

EDIT: Dubai's is nice visually, but stupid expensive. And super corrupt. I have friend who's dad lives over there, and heard a ton of horror stories regarding Dubai. That being said, if I could afford it, I'd want to visit.

Mine were for Fix-It Felix, I had stuffed them in my worker's belt and they likely slipped out when walking to the con.

I got more comfy ones that were cheaper but don't color-match. DON'T CARE.
