Is this different from how it normally looks?


zjm555 t1_j2t5ig3 wrote

Dean Village? No, it pretty much always looks like this.


Sabatorius t1_j2tekiu wrote

Sorry, the internet has ruined me and I was expecting something other than a nice landscape gif.


SsjAndromeda t1_j2uoveo wrote

Right? My first thought was ‘OMG the streets are flooded! Oh wait…’ I feel tricked by not actually being tricked :P

LiveLeak is thankfully very dead. Hayden was too much of a fuckwit.

Same. Thought it was just a photo, then realized it was a gif and thought "something" would happen when I played it and then still nothing else happened lol.

Personally, was waiting for the floating body…

I mean I wouldn’t drink or swim in it. Plenty jakeys have thrown plenty stuff in there from the bridge.

What is a jakey?


calomile t1_j2wi0k1 wrote

Similar-ish to a chav in the general UK parlance. Just with more alcoholism and solvent/heroin abuse.

Not a clue, found this spot while on a walk. Had to stop and take it in


Bonusish t1_j2spe4e wrote

Ah right, is it the novelty of Dean Village in Stockbridge that caught your eye? You on holiday in Edinburgh at the mo?

If you go westwards from there the grounds of the Museum of Modern Art are a nice find


captaincockfart t1_j2tv87f wrote

I thought the Water of Leith had overflowed or something, looks normal to me?

calebthedude11 t1_j2tg7tx wrote

Why is it pronounced this way?


NavyAnchor03 t1_j2u8zl4 wrote

So if you say it slower as bur-uh(gh) it makes way more sense as to how it's pronounced that way. Saying "bur" fast enough turns into a "brr" sound, and "gh" is typically pronounced as a soft "uh"


Passing4human t1_j2v5vhp wrote

However, there's an Edinburg, Texas, pronounced ED-inn-burg.


kujotx t1_j2vbq7i wrote

And they put salsa on their haggis


needitcooler t1_j2vndce wrote

Because the English and Scots just make shit up. For example, why do they pronounce "schedule" as "shed-u-all", but call a school, "skool". Is the "Sch" part of these words somehow different?


Scarlet_Breeze t1_j2vz7rv wrote

I don't know any English or Scottish people that pronounce schedule with a soft Sch sound.


nerevisigoth t1_j2wiqa7 wrote

That's the standard pronunciation in the UK. Hang around a train station and you'll hear it in the announcements constantly. People who consume a lot of American media or work with Americans might say it the American way.


Scarlet_Breeze t1_j2x1t03 wrote

I've lived in England my whole life and never heard anyone pronounce it with the soft sch sound irl.


lo_fi_ho t1_j2sgawe wrote

I'd like to live there please

Flats in the area are a steal at c.£800,000, or you can rent a cosy two bed for about £1500 a month…

For the same money where I live I get the views of another building. I’d gladly pay to live there

Sure, until you learn, this was recorded midday on a "sunny" day in July at a balmy 15 degrees C.

Jokes aside its a beautiful city, well worth a visit.

+15C on a summer day is more than okay, I'm from Finland :D

Oh fuck you with your gorgeous fucking architecture, you utter fuck!

I'm sitting here in California, USA, where the oldest building in my immediate vicinity is maybe 70 years old and falling apart.

I fucking hate that you get to live surrounded by this beauty!

I'm kidding, I'm super jealous and I love visiting Europe. You guys are the best people and your architecture is mind-blowing. Please post more beautiful buildings for me to rage at.


justthetip13 t1_j2wi8v3 wrote

I’m sitting here in flat, boring VA, USA thinking the same about you in CA. At any point, you’re no more than 3 hours away from the beach, the mountains or the desert. You have nine freaking national parks! Grass is always greener my friend


FluffTruffet t1_j2wq0ht wrote

Isn't VA pretty close to the Appalachian mountains and the beach as well? Weather permitting of course? Obviously not the Sierra Nevada or the Rocky mountains but there's some elevation there


ShadowDV t1_j2wuq3y wrote

To be fair, the Appalachians are much older and have much more (geologic) history than the Sierra Nevadas or Rockies :)


TheLadyBunBun t1_j2xaeoj wrote

Well, the grass is only greener in California if you’re where the rich people live

Edinburg is one of the nicest and architectural cities I’ve ever seen. Frankly I thought London and the other major cities in the UK were like any other city in the world but Edinburg was really memorable.

I'll be there in March! Any recommendations of things not to miss out on?

Botanic Gardens

Edinburgh Castle

Museum of Scotland

Whisky Tasting


Holyrood House

Climb Arthur’s Seat/Salisbury Crags

Get chugged on Princes St

Have a seagull nick your pizza in the Gardens.

That’s the main tourist stuff. Reddit likes to promote Edinburgh and Skye as Scotlands main draws but there’s lots else here to enjoy.

lens88888 t1_j2udyx9 wrote

Sorry I was being facetious. There are trout there but you're not allowed to fish right there. It's in middle of the city. Upstream you can with various restrictions like fly only. But if you live in Scotland you're spoilt for choice so no one going to fish this kind of scenario.

That river is weird, it doesn't look natural. Is this the normal water level? It feels like the building is almost below the river level. They definitely ran into water while digging its foundations.
