View Full Version : Where do you live?

Lets see where you live then, fatty.

Where, what, why, when, waterfall?
I live in Nuneaton, West Midlands, England. It's nice but full of chavs which is a shame. It's not at all famous, except for, perhaps, being the home of George Elliot, the female writer called Anne Evans who adopted a dude's name so that her books would be published. This was a long time ago, we were all dead then.

What does it look like?

The newest, most exciting thing that's happened round here is the addition of a big ass shopping centre nearly a year ago. It's called Ropewalk. This is the best (and virtually only) picture I could find: http://www.vinci.plc.uk/new-PLC-pages/focus%20projects/focus%20projects%20images/ropewalk%20images/ropewalk.jpg

This is, by the looks of it, really out of date, but anyway this is the town centre:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/58/Nuneaton_WEB.jpg

This is a crap fountain that the council put in a few years back. They only made it because some other place in Australia had one. http://www.nuneaton-online.org.uk/images/modern/Roanne%20fountain%20in%20Nuneaton.jpg

This is somewhere too but I can't figure out where. Looks nice though:http://www.nuneaton-online.org.uk/images/modern/Alms%20Houses.JPG

This is the toss museum. It's full of crap about George Elliot (who was a female writer from here) that no one cares about (or notices): http://www.nuneaton-online.org.uk/images/modern/DSCN1255.JPG

This is riversly park, and yeah, that is the museum in the background. But you didn't really notice that, did you? This is the part by the long abbandoned band-stand. I've never seen it this full. The most attention it usually gets is a few chavs playing football with a duck. No, really. http://www.nuneaton-online.org.uk/images/modern/Riversley%20Park.JPG

Anything particularly interesting about it?

As I said, it's home to George Elliot, but also, it's where Larry Grayson lived. I went to his old infant school :)
Edit:
Oh, and the river Ankh runs through it. Well, the river Anchor, which is where Terry got the idea. Anyone apart from Joshi know what I'm on about?

Anything else you want to ass?

That's about it.

Hmm, should I post Northampton? Or Newcastle. My Current residence is Newcastle, but everyone already knows what that's like, so I'll do Northampton where I grew up and my parents still live.

Let's see, famouse fo shoes, Des O'Connor used to live there, we have the only marketplace in england that still has cobblestones in the floors.

Oh, Princess Diana's buried in Northamptonshire, in her Brother, the Earl of Spencer's house, Althorpe.
We're apparently the largest town in England.

Northampton is in Northamptonshire, a shire is a place that usually (but not always) holds a town with a few surrounding villages (can sometimes hold two or more towns)

It's literally true folks. Thrik occupies the same space as two of Fealiks' relatives, but in different dimensions.

My knowledge of Nuneaton was previously limited to being aware of its existence as a passing annoyance when travelling between London and the northwest on the train. So thanks, Fealiks. I now know that should the train ever catch fire while in the area, I might as well jump in front of the next one to come along.

I, myself, live on Jupiter.

Fealiks
09-24-2006, 08:22 AM
Well, ok, not literally... Mansfield, though.

I went to Jupiter once. It was ok, nice and pretty, but the lack of police and transport kind of lets it down.

Edit: Huz, you had a knowledge of Nuneaton? I thought it was one of those places where if you bring it up in a conversation, it sounds, to the other person, like a nonsense word... I didn't realize anyone knew it existed...

Tall Guy
09-24-2006, 04:06 PM
ive gotta agree with huz on this one, the only time i ever hear of nuneaton is when im passing through on the train or when im stood on a platform at warrington bank quay and some guard informs me of its existance because the 17:34 to london euston will be passing though....or something.

seeems the place does exist after all :)

£13.46 says ill never go there...

Huz
09-24-2006, 04:15 PM
Yes, it sounds as though Nuneaton has earned its rightful place alongside Crewe, Banbury and Watford in the hallowed ranks of "places that have train stations.... and nothing else".

Congratulations.

Thrik
09-24-2006, 04:59 PM
Hee. :~

There's a place called Newstead on the train between Mansfield and Nottingham (The Robin Hood Line!) which sounds lot like those. You pull up, and you can literally see the entire town below since the station is on a bit of a bank. There's also a grotty pub next to the train station. I think that pretty much describes that entire town's amenities.

Mansfield on the other hand is a superb town with lots of facilities. It's also quite a big town by common standards so the fact I live in it as well as the relatives of someone else on LucasForums doesn't massively surprise me. :¬:

Forgive me for sounding like a snob, but where I'm from we have a little thing called taste which prevents us from buying so-called '17p' noodles. I'd rather buy a pack of noodles for £2 and go hungry for a week than eat that kind of cardboard poison.

"Look stan, look, we got a cake for 12p!"
"It has a footprint on it."
"We'll eat round it man! And we got - get this - twenty-four cans of lager for £4!"
"Lager is horrible when you pay for the good stuff, so what the hell is this sailor's piss?"
"Oh man, chill out, we're students."

Fυck all that. I worked hard and earned my money, and instead of spending it on lots and lots of cheap food I spend it on food that tastes nice, and I eat a bit less. God, I'm crazy. ¬¬

Of course the lines become a bit blurred once you get into the range of 20p cola and such! I'd seriously rather drink battery acid than that shank.

Joshi
10-02-2006, 10:08 AM
Oh no, I still pay the extra 5p and get the 25p cans of Pepsi (if I feel like consuming caffiene that week... I tend to alternate which really begs the question of why I decided to quit caffeine in the first place if I'm going to give in to weaknesses and drink pepsi).

And I still buy good quality food, but then I don't like it when people class good quality food as 3 pieces of chicken that cost £6.50, when much cheaper food can still give me the same food. I'm not about to do my food shopping at Harrods (if they ever sold food) just so I can get the best, when i can get enough from places like Netto and Aldi.

Fealiks
10-02-2006, 01:25 PM
I remember when Irn Bru was only 19p. Now there's proof that the cheapest things can be the best. To be hontest, though, there is some reason behind the fact that some chicken costs much more. That being, obviously, that the cheap stuff is pumped full of antibiotics, giving you a bit of an immunity to them. Oh, and it has chicken crap in it's pores.

Huz
10-03-2006, 08:51 PM
Lidl, man, Lidl.

Have you noticed that Asda's own-brand lemonade and coke is cheaper per litre than its bottled water?

18p for a two-litre bottle of Asda Cola, man. 18p!

In other news, where is Nuneaton again? Oh oh! I've forgotten! Why is that? It must be because I've mastered the art of getting trains that don't stop there! Congrats Nuneaton, you join Stafford and Coventry in the long list of "places I don't have to see more than a fleeting glimpse of any more".

When you're on the train and you pass Nuneaton, besides from vomit, there's something else you should do. Duck. chavs throw bricks, eggs and perhaps ducks* at trains. I hate life. *cust self*...*hits wall*

*Some time last year, a group of proper solard boshin' chavs decided to stick a screwdriver through a Duck's head. Then play football with it. They took the screwdriver out of it's head and left it there to die. The sad thing is, as if that wasn't sad enough, was that the Duck lived on for a few days... poor bastard.

Never heard of Lidl, but as for the rest... um, because those German companies wanted to branch out to other countries so they could maybe make more money. Just a thought.

Becuase English supermarkets are crap. Apart from ASDA, which is English, despite the Walmart crap.

Tesco and Sainsburys aren't exactly bad, with the former doing some excellent breads and the latter having a superb selection of pizzas. Do you even go shopping anyway?

elTee
10-05-2006, 07:38 PM
The reason the Germans came to England is because they realised we are a lazy people, and our low work ethics could be supplanted by high wages and a puritanical approach to selling food. Aldi has some nice stuff, to be honest.

Joshi
10-06-2006, 04:56 AM
Tesco and Sainsburys aren't exactly bad, with the former doing some excellent breads and the latter having a superb selection of pizzas. Do you even go shopping anyway?

Very true about Tesco's. Wouldn't know about Sainsbury's, I've shopped there years ago, but as it turns out, no matter where I move to, there doesn't seem to be one within walking distance of my apartment (whereas my local 24 hour super Tesco's is a stones throw away). I tend to go to either Tesco's or Netto for my shopping needs, Netto if I just need something basic, fast and cheap, Tesco's for quality and a wider selection (and, on occasion, hot food).

Fealiks
10-06-2006, 01:43 PM
I thought Tesco's had a better selection of bread too, until I compared Tesco's Tiger Bread to ASDA's Tiger Bread...

Tesco's:
Good points: It's Tigery "pattern" makes for a good sandwhich, and while it is difficut to cut to size with a normal knife, it does toast well.
Bad points: It tastes like sugar.

ASDA:
Good points: You can smell its tongue tingling aroma from literally metres away, even when cold. And damn is it nice. Also, the good points for Tesco's bread apply here too.
Bad points: It costs... well, ok, it tastes really... it has.... OK, it doesn't really have any bad points.

Edit:
It has just occured to me that people everywhere, including me, seem to day "Tesco's" rather than "Tesco", which is it's proper name, which I just realised (or remembered) thanks to an advert on TV. Heh.

elTee
10-06-2006, 02:33 PM
I like the pizzas ASDA make for you. They'll literally do anything you ask and it still works out cheap. You're there like "No, not cheddar this time - Mexican cheese! I want someone to find me some jalapeños. And instead of plain old chicken, let's go for the one which has been marinaded in spices. Yeah, that's the stuff."

ASDA is the cheapest, which I like. Sainsbury's is the most expensive, but it's also the most 'high class*' (even if it doesn't always taste the best) and Tesco is just a wannabe cross between them both. Morrison's is underrated.

* - Marks and Spencer doesn't count.

Thrik
10-06-2006, 03:29 PM
I'd probably go to Morrisons more but the only one in Mansfield is on the outskirts, near the hospital. ASDA and Tesco on the other hand are more like a 15-minute walk away. I recall Morrisons doing nice hot chicken on their chicken counter though.

As for the bread issue, while I agree that ASDA's tiger bread is superior, the normal breads aren't. Of course I guess this could all depend on the bakers at the particular shop, since whenever I buy ASDA's tiger bread it seems to be a bit different each time. Sometimes it'll be drowned in the stuff they put on, while sometimes it'll be a bit more like normal bread.

Fealiks

The best most unexpected meal I ever had while being on the island: canned spaghetti on toast. Seriously. Too bad it was only one toast and like half a small can of spaghetti (I mean *for dinner*) and there were like cat hairs on it too :(.

Besides that, you gotta love fish'n'chips and turkey pie with peas. The best breakfast I ever had was ham&eggs at Sgt. Peppers. The worst thing was spaghetti and sauce from black olives. This sauce was purple and smelled like barf. .. Wait, that was Venice.

What I want to say is: If you want a hundred meters of ketchup in bottles in a shelf, go to Sainsbury's. If you seek any random product, except space ships, but even male sex dolls, goto Sainsbury's, and you'll find at least one item which also says Sainsbury's on it. Weird. On the other hand, who'd buy a space ship that says Sainsbury's on it?

Dude, the Saturday before last my rent came out and due to a small bank error, I was left with £2.20 for groceries for the next week (yeah, we laughed to). Long story short, save for the cat hair, you just described my meals for the next 5 days.

I now have money and enough food to last me till Armageddon, so I'm sorted now, but I just thought it was ironic that you would mention the meal I've now grown sick of.

10-09-2006, 12:41 PM
If you can fly to France and back (from England) for 2p, just imagine what you could do with £2.20. Oh, and a small tip: If you ever become homeless, ask for spare notes rather than change. I heard this woman on the radio who was a multimillionairess who won millions of pounds on the lottery on top of her multimillionairedness. A homeless guy asked for spare change and she gave him all the spare change she had, 32p. If he'd asked for spare notes, he would have got five grand, literally. She gave this fat git called Duncan Donuts a thousand pounds just because he asked for it as a joke, so I imagine she'd give a homeless person five thousand...

Yeah. I'll just let that sink in.

Joshi
10-10-2006, 07:38 AM
Hmm okay. That just seems a little odd to me, but I guess it could be normal in Germany... or I'm just weird. I mean canned spaghetti I can understand because it's chopped up small and in some form of tomato sauce, but actual spaghetti made fresh just seems weird. I mean as far as spag bol goes, go right ahead, but on toast? Whatever.:)

Ray Jones
10-10-2006, 08:59 AM
What do you mean - Germany? I do this in my kitchen!?

Whatever. See, whenever I cook spaghetti, I cook plenty of it. By plenty you're supposed to think of at least 10 but more like the thousandfold of it. In case of the most unlikely case, which would be where I don't eat them all, I might not eat them all. This is why there's always plan B on the ready, and plan B basically says I will eat them later. Now, when it's later, maybe them spaghettis are cold already, this is when it's later than the later which plan B was originally originated for. This usually is also the case if I waited to long for some plan B activating event. So I immediatly run plan C which roughly involves a pan with the aforementioned cold spaghetti and the rest of the sauce in it _and_ parts of plan B.
Hm. But sometimes I feel the urge to do something really crazy. Then I simply switch plan C and D.
And we all know what plan D looks like, right? Right. -- Go out and bilk a hooker - throw the money at her and run away. Then return home, chop the spaghetti in the pan, heat them, eat them .. on toast.

Why certainly! I will not have visited the UK for nothing but the experience. I have seen all things British: The Laserdrome, Alien Wars, the food, Liverpool, Victoria Station after a bomb, no pub from the inside after 11pm, the vomitting pigeon in front of a museum featuring odours, hsnehsne castle, nghangha cathedral, dfjudfju cave, the beautiful girl, the spanish girl, ice beer and two jets flying in a canyon.

Really? Us Britons manage it. As long as they don't sell beer and let you out through the back door, the pubs can't get in trouble (we still get beer after 11, but settle the bill the following morning).

Fealiks

I used to have canned spaghetti on toast all the time... not buttered toast, though, just canned spagghetied toast. I thought it was pretty normal... but then again, my taost antics are far from normal. I have developed a way of eating it that makes it loads better, and I always forget I'm doing it when I'm in front of people which is a nice little ice-breaker. Here's how to eat toast my way:
• Eat off the crusts
• Squeeze the toast so that the warm, liquid butter rises out of the bread
• With your teeth, scrape off the buttery bread that you have just squeezed.
• Repeat the first and second step.
• Keep repeating them until all you have left is the back of the toast.
• Roll this crusty treat up tightly.
• Scrape it on the residual buttery crums you have left on the plate (If there isn't any, you are not a man)
• Eat.

Seriously, try it.

Oh, and ray, the plural of spaghetti is spaghetti [spag-get-eye]

Maybe because his shirt says "I don't leave for 11pm!" ;~

I don't go very often into pubs or bars anyway, especially not weekdays. So I couldn't care less about their closing times. Exceptionally there is this bar with kind of a garden and open air cinema I occasionally happened to find myself this summer. It usually stayed open from friday afternoon to monday morning or sometimes even tuesday. The places I tend to go to on weekends hardly close before 10am, wasn't to bad to have a place where you could go before and/or after clubs, watch the world cup or all at once. :p

Yeah, I think it was automatic, unless you swore using your method above, in which case it could have been anyone (I don't tend to do that).

Yeah, the Tesco here is fecking huge, there's very little I can't get there, and it's only a 10 minute walk from my flat. There's a Netto right across the street from it, but I've found myself going their less and less and going to Tesco's more and more.

As for the 30 minute metro ride into Sunderland... which metro are you taking?! Last time I went to Sunderland it took me at least 40-50 minutes. But I'm not going to uni this year, doing a Placement in Jarrow which is also a 40 minute Metro journey every day.

Actually, even though Tesco's and Netto are across the road from one another, it still takes an additional 5 minutes to get to Tesco's because of the car park. But yes, if i want to get, say, some drinks from tesco's, there is another 3 minute walk to the other end of the store (with an additional minute when I realise I'd forgotten to bring a basket).

Fυcking Lincoln climbs out of his monument and starts jiving (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd6weEzrdUQ). No-one should be lucky enough to take that much acid.

On a more serious note, Grace Slick has possibly the greatest female vocals in rock history - when she takes a lot of coke and drinks far too much, it's not very apparant. Starship perpetuates the idea that she's a talentless punk, when she's really the prototypical hippie rock chick.

My parents decided to surprise me for my 21st Birthday and take me to the states (well, New York to be precise). We have friends on Ohio so they said we should go stay with them and then we'd all go to New York. I stayed in Ohio for the better part of two weeks and spent about 3 days in New York.

They're the scary chavs. The ones who all the street-corner ones look up to and buy drugs from. The ones who go to prison and actually rob people etc. And they have money.

Or you could just accidentally be in Moss Side. My friend was walking towards there once after a night out when he couldn't find the way home. The police told him to get in the car, and he thought he was being arrested so he wouldn't get in. Eventually they just told him, if you keep walking in this direction you're going to get fυcking killed. Then he got in ;)

I just had a group of american mates visit, took them around the country and id a spot of chav spotting. The chav breed really dosent have a clue do they?

Brighty's version of Chav:

Track suit bottoms usually rolled up a few inches revealing white socks
Baseball cap (Curled rim)
Tracksuit top or football shirt, occasionally striped polo top
Gelled hair or ponytail (girls only)
Spotty face
Hooped earrings that dolphins train with
Occasionally a gargantuan clown necklace
Child in tow usually screaming, stealing or assaulting pedestrians

Personality: Stupid, lack of manners, talks alot about fighting, football or times spent at the pub (usually a weatherspoons).

Test for you all: Chavs act hard, but through my own experiments they are not. DO NOT **** with a chav when they are with fellow chavs. But a lone chav is a target for much taunting in their general direction.

Your task: Stare down a lone chav. They will fail, you will feel that you have won something for the non-chav population. Just don't do it when they're with mates cos it always ends in battle.
