Morning cuppa

What makes people British?

I'm getting a real kick out of the article on what makes the British British, per the British, especially since I've often felt talking about the weather was a very Seattle thing ... and we're also known for being good at queueing.

So I wonder ... just what is "curtain twitching," anyway?

Also, the whole "being good at queueing" thing ... how does it explain what happens with EasyJet? First people fight to be near the front of the line, then people run off of the tram across the tarmac in a mad dash to the stairs going up to the plane! It's like a preview of what would happen if there was a nuclear apocalpse - or if a new Primark opened downtown.
