Getting away is fun

I just got back from a few days in England. It was nice to get away (although, I didn't totally get away since I gave a research talk - one in which I got viciously attacked on some minor points). What was really nice was getting away from the news. I think it's good for me to pay less attention to all the craziness in the world... I will try to avoid it as much as possible from now on.

Oh, and for your entertainment here are some signs that may not have the same meaning in American English as British English:

In Windsor, near the Queen's home

In Hackney, London (voted the worst place to live in the UK)

In Oxford (No, I didn't try it - I was afraid of what 80% meat entails).

  1. Awesome, dude. I'm envious that you have time to travel, even if it is under the guise of a research talk (and I'm sorry to hear about the vicious attack...)
