i'm moving there. how stabbed will i get ?
that what you mean by this is that there are probably quite a few gang members for whom going to E&C would actually mean they'd get stabbed cos people would be on the look out for them. so moving there would be totally suicidal. also, gonna find that info about housing benefit changes affecting where people can live. cos where i'm moving to is pretty cheap and i don't like the idea of becoming even more of a ghetto haha.
but still utterly terrifying in a pretty base emotional way
and that was to go to the Bussey Building. so probably not best placed to comment!
and I sometimes work on Bellenden road. The amusing name wears off fairly quickly.
i do hope there's a nice selection of gangs to join which cater to my demographic. i reckon a nice gentle, beardy, well-spoken gang would be the kind of gang for me.
likely to get mugged. my mate got mugged at knifepoint in brixton recently. they took his iPod. but apart from that all they got was his phone (basic nokia, worth a fiver) although somehow they let him take his simcard out first. which was nice of them. and they also got all the money he had on him. which was £3.
I got mugged at knifepoint in Brixton a about three months ago as well. On my own doorstep :(.
I go to LCC, seems like an OK area. I think most places are pretty safe in London, I remember that thread where all the DiSers were crying about how unsafe Homerton was.
The annoying thing is there isn't much interaction with the rest of the uni, so I just kind of go in and come out
*Random stuff you remember from DiS threads*
And the library there is the best.
Been living here for about six months now. It's great. Compared to where I was living before (really close to Brick Lane) it's massively better.
I was pretty scared at first, but genuinely never saw any trouble. A friend nearly got mugged. Well, there was trouble in the form of enormous riots rolling down the road last August, but weirdly, the comparatively little damage done made me feel a bit better about living there.
Though in the last two weeks I lived there, one night, a woman and her boyfriend were having a fight at 4am, the gist of which seemed to be that he had shagged her mum. Then the next week, they had the same fight again. Surely shagging your mum's a dealbreaker?
I'll be honest, I hated it and never felt safe.
My female housemate's never really felt scared, and female friends are fine visiting us, but then we're just off Walworth at the top end near the station so it's not a long walk or anything I guess.
Compared to Aldgate where I used to have to walk friends to and from the nearest station because of all the gangs of kids who would try and grope lone women at night, it's just hugely better.
Some good, cheap food options around...
Much better than Clapham.
