Well, I understand that London in the past probably did really stink of piss, but what does the app do?

Good grief, guys. It's about time travel. The movie is "Back to the Future".

Yeah. Christopher Reeves really ran away with that role. Later of course he could only roll...

You.  You're funny.  Thanks for waking me up this morning.

British phone booths and phone booths outdoors in general typically reek of piss and/or shiat.

London was one of our honeymoon spots a year ago and I had to get a photo of me in one but using my cell phone.  OH. MY. GOD. that thing STUNK!  It was worse than a port-a-potty!  I checked a few and they were all disgusting!  I'm positive that anything and everything was done in those things.  Awful, just awful!

We should count ourselves lucky you didn't take a picture near any on the Euston Road between Kings X and Euston...

 Yeah, I saw a few of those in them too.  Is the Euston tube stop the one where the big station is for all sorts of trains?  I recall going to that one a lot when we were heading to the attractions.  Our flat was located between Euston and some other station that I can't recall at the moment.

Euston above ground has the trains to Liverpool, Manchester, and the west of Scotland (Glasgow) but only has a couple of tube lines going through. The Kings Cross / St. Pancras system has trains running up the east coast to places like York (think: Downton Abbey) and the east of Scotland (Edinburgh), and that's the place with a LOT of tube lines and Thameslink underground.
