LONDON THREAD

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson

You're all fakes
Run to your mansions

Currently back and forth between Dulwich and Norwich. Yesterday I saw a middle-aged woman angrily kick the side of an Ocado van as the driver was visibly trying to calm her down.

Anything fun happening on the 11th November? I've got a flight from Gatwick at 9 in the morning and I think partying would be a better option then sleeping overnight in the airport

It looks like i'll be getting this job and subsequently moving to London. Where should i be looking at that's a 30 odd minute commute from Oxford Circus? I'm thinking north-east (Hackney, Stoke Newington), but i really don't have much clue. Is gumtree the best place for finding house shares in London?

My bro has just moved from Woolwich to Deptford. Going to see Charlton Athletic for £5 on Saturday woo.

The best place to get fried chicken in Woolwich and possibly the world is Philly J's.

oh shit i completely forgot about this thread. badminton yeah, you should probably live in hackney, there's a lot of good stuff here, it's leafy and pretty much everything that isn't mare street/kingsland road/homerton/hackney wick is really nice. stoke newington, dalston and victoria park are the nicest areas but they're expensive as hell, so if you're on a budget it's probably a good idea to move someplace like clapton or stamford hill, still really close (and still gentrifying at a terrifying rate) but more affordable. the good areas to the north are generally crazy expensive, anything southeast of hackney I personally wouldn't know that much about (but I know there are boarders from stratford and bow somewhere around), also i've always found west london to basically be the fast track to surrey but i could just know the wrong people.

I know hackney really well, though, so if you want advice on any specific area drop me a pm or something.

I'm in Leyton and I think it's cheaper than Hackney and better connected. It's nowhere near as cool though; I generally prefer nights out in Hackney and gawping at the hot hipster girls in the Cock Tavern and Clapton Hart.

I almost passed out on a platform on Saturday. I was pretty hung over, it was really crowded, hot as fuck and there was no air and I was listening to a This American Life about a girl who got bit by a shark and puss was filling her lungs and she was throwing up bile and I had to lean against the wall and quickly sit.

GOOD TIMES.

I'm just really glad I live near enough to Mile End station to walk over when the District is closed, the past 2 weeks the Central line has been the only line through the East End. fuccccccccccced

if the guard at highbury & islington overground wasn't seemingly there for like 22 hours a day he'd definitely board here.

Where is the best spot in London if you want to go to Shoreditch but when you get there you feel a bit too old
