Hey I'm part american and british currently living in the USA and I was wondering what is britian like. do they have airsoft and paintball? And is it always cold there?


gromitsbuddyinginventor Posted: Dec 19th 2012

much to all you Americans  assumptions it isnt always cold. Just about 80% of the time! And any way you don't notice because its what your used to. What is airsoft?


Nathan M Posted: Dec 19th 2012

We have paintball but ive never been to one, its cold depening on where you live I suppose


MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 19th 2012

we hav paintball i done it once myself but we don't hav airsoft


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 19th 2012

Oh ok. sorry gromitsbuddyinginventor I just here my dad saying it is cold in britian(he was raised their. Airsoft is a sport like paintball it uses plastic pellets insted of paint filled balls. it dosen't hurt as much either.


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 19th 2012

can you really see the french coast from britain's?


MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 19th 2012

i don't think u can with the naked eye


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 19th 2012

oh I always thought you could, thanks.


so is cricket really big in britian?


MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 19th 2012

not really it is one of our main sports but the biggest is football (might be soccer to u)
most people support a football team but nowhere near as many follow cricket that is why it is mainly shown on sky rather than on the BBC or ITV which r the bigger british channels 


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 19th 2012

I know the diffrence between football and american football so you can use that name. whats the sky?


MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 19th 2012

not "the sky" just "sky" it's a kind of tv service that u basically pay for and then u get extra channels for your tv


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 19th 2012

oh ok thanks. I have something like that to but there's alot of places to buy more channels but I think it all a waste of time.


MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 19th 2012

i don't hav sky myself, not much point


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 19th 2012

MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 19th 2012

i don't think there's a wallace and gromit museum anywhere and ther r not many double decker buses generally but ther r quite a lot in London


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 19th 2012

ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 19th 2012

wandgfanatic Posted: Dec 20th 2012

Yes hot water bottles are essential for the british.  I thik a few might be using them today! Lol!

Thats OK. what is the store for british to go to, you know for food, clothes, detergents, toys and ect.


wandgfanatic Posted: Dec 20th 2012

Hmmm...there is Asda (that would be the brit equivalent of wal-mart) Tesco, Sainsburys. There is also Harrods, which is very famous and it is in London.  I think there is a sister store in Scotland too.


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 20th 2012

ummm i always thought it would be the same stores.


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 20th 2012

So what huge theme park is there that almost evryone wants to go to? we have disney land


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 20th 2012

Is there any national measums there? were they all are inter connnected and almost right across from each other? we have the simthsonian.


Nathan M Posted: Dec 20th 2012

Alton towers and Drayton manor are the popular ones in the uk, popular in my area anyway. nothing like disney land... 


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 20th 2012

ok are there any rollar coastors or famous rides there?


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 20th 2012

never mind I'm looking it up.


666joshy666 Posted: Dec 20th 2012

Thorpe Park is the most famous Theme Park in the UK. The most famous ride is called Stealth, which shoots you 62mph into the air at 80MPH.


MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 20th 2012

exactly, thorpe park is the main theme park really, alton towers is more second in line and drayton manor is quite a bit smaller


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 20th 2012

cool


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 20th 2012

The big eye, are you ablr to see big ben at the top of it and other than for saftey what other reasons are there for the enclosed cabin/seats?


MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 20th 2012

by "the big eye" i take it u mean "the london eye" and i am pretty sure that u can see big ben from it but i hav only been on like twice so cant really remember, it quite nice though, the view etc. but it is quite slow and takes a while to go round


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 20th 2012

ok. I mean is it really windy when you get to the top and have you ever felt scared when you look down at the tippy top?


MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 20th 2012

no not really, it doesnt rock so it not scary an it aint windy or if it is u dont notice wen ur on it


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 20th 2012

OK.when you think about an american how do you think they look?


MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 20th 2012

it depends... but on first thought i would think of someone with short hair average height  dont know what the patterns called but that one with squares shirt cap, jeans.. i guess


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 20th 2012

it's called a flannel shirt.

 that discribes almost how I look


MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 21st 2012

think i might be phsycic


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 21st 2012

mabye a you really are


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 21st 2012

so would you walk to school ride a bus or have your parents drive you to school? what do most kids do in the UK


MrTechnoTrousers Posted: Dec 21st 2012

it is a mixture, in primary school (elementary schools to you i think) most would get dropped off at school and some would walk and then when u go 2 highschool the people that liv further away an cant be dropped off by parents take a school bus. most though walk to school or get dropped off in the car


wandgfanatic Posted: Dec 21st 2012

Some kids would take a boat to school.  


gromitsbuddyinginventor Posted: Dec 21st 2012

Or there are a few boarding schools..


ARC-1999816 Posted: Dec 21st 2012

some take a boat to school?????????
