When visiting London from the United States, there is one consumable item of which you should purchase at least a 50-pack before arriving.

CONDOMS.

If you haven't used them all before you leave, you can sell them at a profit. They're almost as expensive as fags.

Are they incredibly cheap in the States?

Much cheaper than here, yeah! Especially considering that 1 pound = 1.95 USD right now.

And what does one use these 'condoms' for? They look a bit strange to me as if they fit over fat fingers or something.

I suppose some people might like to cover their fingers when going to the toilet, and that's where they are often sold.

They're for "protection." More than that, I cannot say. I can tell you one thing they're not good for, though. They make very poor kitten chew-toys.

They make expensive and chewy skins for sausages as well.

Shh! I'm trying to see if this results in a little black market trade here. The fag-and-booze angle has already been cornered. ;-D

Ah, the black market for condoms. I never knew there could be one in the UK.

The one thing I miss that comes from the UK is the UK edition of Dreamwatch magazine (I hope the newly launched US edition is the same as the UK edition because that is my favorite sci-fi media mag- grrrr). I'll know when I get the first copies fo the US edition.

ironed_orchid made it for me. I can't really see her distributing presents to children. "Take this gift or I'll slit your throat. Muaha. ARRR!"
