Anyone near this place ?

12 Tidlock House
Erebus Drive
London,
SE28 0GD

Just bought a phone on Ebay and would like to make sure it's a real
address or even have someone from here collect it for me and check it
out. I'll bank transfer the cash to them and the P&P to me.

Then I know it's not a rip off

Thanks

It means that the sellers are (supposedly) not waiting on buying another
house before they sell. Chains happen when vendor A won't complete the
sale because he's buying from vendor B who won't complete because he's
buying from vendor C who won't complete because...

This is why first time buyers are in a good negotiating position if
they've got their finance sorted. No chain, see?

When I moved in, all they left was the bathroom cabinet "because we
can't get it off the wall"

Not a lightbulb left in the place, despite the fact that it's illegal
(unless you switch the electricity off) as they're leaving the property
in a potentially dangerous condition

Oh and they left the unpainted bits behind the furniture

The thing is, string theory has it over particle theory because particle
theory only works if gravity doesn't exist. This is because particle
interactions can occur at zero distance. String interactions don't occur at
a point. Particles in string theory occur as excitations of the string, and
one possible particle has zero mass and two units of spin - I'm sure you can
see where this is leading. If there was such a thing as a graviton, this
would be it. Hairy string theory, OTOH, predicts a particle with
appropriate mass and two units of countersteer, informally referred to as a
coriolon.

Whatever. The magnetic monopoles are mounted to the shaft in such a way
that they maintain a constant orientation despite the rotation of the shaft.
This means that a unified coriolon field can be maintained without worrying
about flux interactions from the transmission. When a countersteering force
is applied to this field, it in effect locally distorts the background
graviton field, creating a centrifugal anomaly with quite sharply defined
boundaries, known as a bubble. The principal characteristic of a bubble is
that the graviton field in it is uniformly at an angle to the field outside
the bubble, and the angle is proportional to the angle of the
countersteering force but 90 deg out of phase. The effect is that, as far
as the house is concerned, the local gravity banks over to allow it to
negotiate the corner safely. The effect isn't absolute - there's some
leakage, hence the drift - but the drawers are self-closing, and the knives
are on a magnetic knife rack...

I'm not surprised. You just get one wound up nicely, and going along at
a fair old clip, then some cunt SMIDSYs it. Takes *ages* to figure out
whose fault it was, apparently. They're even using computers to do it
now.

Using the patented Mavis Beacon "Hunt&Peck" Technique, John Littler
Post by John Littler
What does "chain free" mean ?
It means that the sellers are (supposedly) not waiting on buying
another house before they sell. Chains happen when vendor A won't
complete the sale because he's buying from vendor B who won't
complete because he's buying from vendor C who won't complete
because...
Bollocks. It's a shaft-drive house.
and no possibility of a wheelie bin scheme

I've heard of people taking their *lightbulbs* with them.

My mate Dave *swapped* houses (with cash on top) a couple of years
ago. The bloke who he was swapping with took not only the
light-bulbs, but the things you screw them into (pendants?).

What was the point in that? He wasn't going to need them, because
Dave hadn't taken his...

When I moved into my first place in 1981 I found the house still full
of furniture and lots of other stuff. All personal possessions like
clothes, ornaments, pictures and the usual stuff you find in cupboards
and drawers was gone. I called the estate agents who said they phone me
back when they'd spoken to the vendors. The reply came from the parents
[1] of the couple who'd owned the house prior to me. They said I could
keep anything I wanted and to dispose of the rest, a sort of starting
help to a young first time buyer. They'd left all the white goods,
dining table, 3-piece suite, carpets, TV, decent stereo, beds,
wardrobes etc.

It was quite a well looked after house and most of it was to my own
tastes, so all I did was redecorate and buy new matresses.

[1] The early 30s couple who'd owned the house were killed in a car
crash in France. The house was sold by the parents of the bloke, his
wife had no immediate family.

The little old lady I bought my house of did that. She was moving
into a retirement home so didn't need anything so she thought she'd
leave it to help out a young couple.

As it was, I'd only been to view the house with a female friend to get
her opinion on it.

Most of the stuff got sold but I've still got the three piece suit.

I know someone who bought a house, and when they moved in the POs
had removed all light fittings as well as of the plants from the
garden and had actually dug up the clothes-line post c/w concrete
base, from the back garden.

www.streetmap.co.uk would suggest it isn't a real address.
www.multimap.com, however...
fair enough. I guess streetmap's data is out of date.

It means that they're not waiting for the next person to sell their
house so they can buy it

Just bought a phone on Ebay and would like to make sure it's a real

Then I know it's not a rip off
If only there were some sort of national organisation that dealt with postal
addresses. Then you could go to their website and and look up addresses and
postcodes.

We could even call it something posh like "Royal Mail". That would be
nice...

I had a call on Erebus Drive a couple of months ago.
All very nice new apartments, might even be too new to be on most maps.
I can confirm its a real address.
No plans to go back again soon though, unless they need another graphics
card upgrade.

I don't but it didn't show on any maps and it's always good to get
things checked out right.
