LONDINIUM by mastertouch LONDINIUM by mastertouch
Law reformer Jeremy Bentham left his entire estate to London’s University College in 1832 on condition that he be stuffed, dressed in his finest clothes and mounted in a chair from where he would continue to attend the annual meeting of the university’s board of governors. His figure is still brought out to preside over an annual debate.

The British eat twice as many baked beans per head as Americans do.

London's first traffic island was put in St. James's Street in 1864 at the personal expense of a Colonel Pierpoint, who was afraid of being run over on his way to his Pall Mall club. When it was finished, he dashed across the road to admire his creation and was knocked down by a cab.

In the great fire of London in 1666, half of London was burnt out but only 6 people were injured.

In London, it is illegal for a person with the Plague to flag down a taxi. No cab may carry corpses or rabid dogs.
