Stella isn't the cheapest beer here. Carling or Fosters is generally much cheaper in a pub.

idk about England but here it's not the cheapest but bars and clubs usually do a 3 for a tenner or 2 for a fiver deal with Stella.

Aye, I suppose there's always deals in different places. From my experience if you're buying a pint in a pub and you're on a budget, you stick to Carlsberg, Carling or Fosters. Different places, different prices though I guess.

a friend visited the UK (can't remember where exactly) and he brought a case of Stella with him to a party/gathering, and everyone thought he was trying to get in a fight that night. any truth to Stella being associated with brawling?

Stella is nicknamed 'wife beater' over here. So yeah, there's some truth to that.

make sure you tell everyone Stella Artois is your favorite beer.

And why exactly would he do that? Stella is a Belgium beer. You're pulling shit out of your ass. Go look at a map. If he is going into a pub and orders a beer he should go with Bottingtons.

I believe you're trying to spell Boddingtons.

Weird, that's what they call Natural Ice in my town. Honestly, if Stella is the joke beer of England, I'm going to do just fine.

Totally didn't expect this kind of response. Let me respond to everything in one post:
  • Randomly found a stash of condoms the other day. Just crossing fingers that they haven't expired.
  • Fuck my mom's friend's son who said people laughed him out of London for wearing sweatshirts and jeans; I'm bringing my Swellers hoodie.
  • Nando's. Noted.
  • Packing some more coats on top of my cardigans...yay freezing temperatures.
  • I guess I will just have to buy a ton of beer and find out which brand's the cheapest. For science, of course.
  • I watched an embarrassing amount of BBC America the other day and Top Gear was on for most of it. I honestly don't know shit about cars or car shows, but pretty enjoyable show. I caught up with Doctor Who and Sherlock though since a) I got addicted and b) I heard Doctor Who is everywhere over there.

You need to work the word "cunt" into your vocabulary. Make it seamless. Everything else is secondary.

Yeah bring a fucking ton of sweatshirts, it's currently -3 degrees here. And getting colder.

Almost all supermarkets (Tescos, Asda, Morrisons) will have alcohol on sale all yeah round.

Pronounce garage correctly (ga - ridge) everything else vocabulary wise is fine.

When you get there, find out what the majority of your surrounding students support as a football team and say you support it too. It's so much easier than saying "I don't watch it." trust me. Then just pretend your studies have gotten in the way of you watching the games forever.

If you have a netflix account make sure to get a proxy on your laptop because the English version of Netflix is fucking awful and you'll be automatically logged into that.

Most fast food places are completely different to their american counterparts. It's gonna be a shock

Apparently a lot of our burgers have horse meat in them. That is all anyone anywhere seems to be currently concerned about. As such, all conversation you have will revolve around it. So you should probably read up.
