If anyone wants to know how to use a £ sign without having a key for it (like on North American keyboards) find the Character Map from your start menu. Depending on which (if any) version of windows you are using it may be under accessories or system tools.

Open the Character Map, click on the £ and drag it to the text you are typing. Or you can copy and paste it.


And that may be useful info so feel free to ignore it.

is there a Tate Modern and a Tate Britain? because i had a class trip to the Tate Britain to see an exhibition on Gothic stuff and it's just up the river from the houses or parliament the opposite way from the London Eye.

work it into a useless fact, like the Tate Modern is 5% larger and has a larger number of badger sightings that the Tate Britain, or something along those lines.

I fell over outside Tate Modern, even though it's got a pub right next to it.

I have fallen over very close to Tate Britain.

There is nothing preventing the common house fly flying out an open window, they are just more interested in their reflections, i.e. another fly.
