But i can name all the countries of Europe, Asia and South America.
with 2:39 to spare
and that was with about two minutes saying "what the hell have i missed? oh! leicester square!"
not too hard
not bad considering I've never actually lived in London.
Who the fuck would have forgotten Covent Garden? NO-ONE!
missed covent bleeding garden
I'll take that.
i'm actually pissed off
so i'm on 50. i'm still annoyed
i hate anyone who got south lambeth
either you're jokinf or are massively wrong
which is not how its spelt
i should have qualified that statement with the fact that i've only ever been through that station on a circle line train, and i'm sure thats not what the signs say. any way, what kind of a moron would put s's anywhere in anything.
i ask you
and i missed covent garden!

No I cannot. And why would I want to??
The ones that I missed were those on the Circle/Piccadilly line around South Kensington - I don't think that I've ever found myself down that way since moving down here.
If anybody’s interested, here is a geographical map of the Underground system:
Look how close Queensway Station and Bayswater are, and also the proximity of Paddington to Lancaster Gate – they’re the most obvious example of the distortion necessary in Beck’s map.
In fact, if anyone’s interested, here’s another map showing those stations which are so close to each other that it’s actually quicker to walk rather than take the tube:
It's ridiculous, over 25 Miles away from Charing Cross. You may as well have a london underground station in Brighton
That said Chesham is pretty far out, I think they've been considering for years whether to get rid of that branch.
except why can i not zoom in? i've tried saving the picture but then when i zoom in it goes all shit.
I WANT THIS INFORMATION
Just drop me a PM.
that irked me.
russell square and another two that i can't fucking remember even now.
there's loads in a few areas that I just don't travel to and some really obvious ones that I missed.
marylebone (shit station)
great portland street (strictly 4 gayz)
aldgate and algate east (fucking stupid stations sound like aldwych or whatever it was called)
st james' park (i actually knew this but i didnt write it correctly or something)
lambeth north (would've got this if i'd noticed the station on the map)
gloucester road (shame)
mansion house (crap version of manor house)
cannon street (really lame station for commuters from lame places)
hyde park corner (have never had any need for this station. fuck it and west london)
tower hill - doesnt really exist
westminster - i suck
THANKS 4 READIN'±!±!±!±!±!!!!!!
pretty much all the ones i missed
Only missed shit ones like Gloucester Road and Lancaster Gate
That was most enjoyable. Embarrassingly I missed Vauxhall and I used to live there. Completely forgot it is in zone 1. I missed Southwark, Lambeth North, Queensway and Lancaster Gate as well but I would never have got them even if I had 10 hours to complete it, especially Lambeth North.
Annoyingly I forgot it's Notting Hill Gate, not just Notting Hill.
Missed a couple of obvious ones, but wouldn't have got Gloucester Road or St. James Park in a million years.
i'm proud of that to be honest, i only started going to london regularly about 6 months ago
missed some really obvious ones but nay bad
