Dude. In Europe people always dress nice. It freaks me out that people here wear jeans and sneakers all the time. No one makes any effort to look nice.

That's good to know. The Brits are a little more open-minded (given the kind of programming they allow on regular television), so this kind of surprises me.

Doesn't everyone smoke like a chimney out there? I think this has a lot to do with the number of thin broads.

I mean they say Europeans are healthier but from what i've seen they smoke a lot. That can't be good.
