The British don't give a shit about foreigners. They do it to confuse themselves.

A guy I met when I was in my thirties posted a challenge to the Book of Faces, name a band from the place you grew up (or close to it) that you like a lot.
This instantly brought Brainiac to mind. The small midwestern city I grew up in has had more than it's share of musical treasures. Before I came of age, it was Dementia Precox. While I was coming of age, it was Haunting Souls. As I was becoming a man, it was The Oxymorons.
For those that don't know, it's event that is held on a quarter mile track. Drink a beer at the starting line, then run a lap. Then stop to drink another beer and run another lap. Then a third. Then a fourth.
The current world record holder is the Canuckistani athlete Lewis Kent: 4:47.17.
He showed up at this race. He ran 5:21. It was fun to watch him perform. He drank his first beer in 4 seconds, the second and third in 5 seconds each, and the fourth in 6 seconds.
I've never been to the UK. Which means I've never been to Scotland. Although my mother, grandmother, and virtually all of my relatives on my mother's side are (or were) Scots who emigrated to the USA after WW2. Despite my Swede-Finn surname, my predominant ancestry is Scottish. So this will be a (very abbreviated) kind of "roots tour" thing for me.
