Nothing like a good holiday to appreciate your own country again.
Don't get me wrong san fran was ace, and yes I would live there if
I didn't have a doggy.
But... I have just hopped onto my coach from heathrow and I don't
Miss the usa all that much, things I love about the uk:
- the lack of fast food adverts
- the lack of adverts from lawyers
- less obese people
- I would get fat in america
- its too big
- we don't advertise precription drugs
- I don't have to pay everybodies wages, I just
Buy the service... Figuring out 15 percent all the time gives
Me a headache.
- I couldn't put my doggy through 6 months of quarantine.
I would say that I saw no evidence of particularly high levels
Of stupidity... I would put us at equal, we have enough ourselves.
Although one person did ask me what state the uk is in, he now
Thinks that it is in new hampshire, and another thought that england
Was the capital of london
I will defo return to san fran though, to explore the wider
Bay area, its a really fun city.
Maybe I will change my mind when it starts to rain.
Well, I'm sure San Francisco enjoyed having you as its guest, Mr. Newly Married Man.
You also seem to have about 100 commercial breaks per
Tv show, so annoying! Can you buy an ad free service?
We have a few ads every 15 minutes maximum, so much better!
That's why most of us use Tivo or some type of DVR. That way I can just fast-forward through the commercials -- I've barely seen any in years!
And you did hit the nail on the head with the obese thing. The really sad thing is that I see as many obese children as I do adults these days.
But come to the East Coast next time. I'll show you around NYC!
I have done parts of NY, my wife lived in rochester for a while
The weirdest thing was seeing these three adverts in succession:
- an advert for heart medications.
- an advert for a triple cheeseburger.
- an advert for life insurance.
If I were rich I would buy an advert to follow that chain which said:
"Kids, miss out the triple cheeseburgers and you won't need the heart
Meds and could pay a lot less for your life insurance"
There were some truly beautiful women in san fran though,
Shame about all the crack whores in las vegas!

Just to let staff know that there are sound adverts on some hubs. I just found one at the very bottom of this hub - http://billyaustindillon.hubpages.com/h … Suez-Canal - although I appreciate adverts are localised and many others maybe won't see this ad. I'm in the UK.It seems to be...

Whilst browsing some hubs on a mobile device after dinner I came across a new advertiser Hubpages seems to be experimenting with, it may mean more revenue for us, but at what cost?

The British Humanist Association has started adverts on buses in several different UK towns and cities with a slogan, ""There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life." It will also be featued on the Tube (the underground train network in London)."The...

I know we are all here to make some money, but having 10 ads on a page slows down loading time to such an extent that readers just don't have the patience to wait for a page to load. So they click away without reading our pages. To prove my point that the very high number of ads is to...

I was totally dismayed to learn that Ad-Blocking software is used by 41% of people. (The statistic appeared in "The Week" magazine.) That reduces impressions. We get 60% of views, but only 59% of those views yield ad impressions so only 35% of our views gives us earnings. If you get 1000...

I often see forum posts about how the site is 'dying', or asking why people would continue writing here after they've earned success on their own websites. So I thought I'd start a thread about WHY people still write here. To start, here are some of my reasons (I haven't written much in the past...
