    Wikipedia is amazing...i found this out about Fareham.....

    The National Census, 2001 found Fareham to have lower than average unemployment and crime with house prices higher than average.

    average age of 40.3 years.

    Adecco, the recruitment agency, claims Fareham as the second best call centre location in the UK.

    Portsmouth:

    11th largest urban area in England

    Most of the city of Portsmouth lies on Portsea Island, located where the Solent joins the English Channel. This makes Portsmouth the United Kingdom's only island city and one of the most densely populated places in Europe.

    The city's rowing club is located in Southsea at the Seafront near the Hovercraft Terminal.

    The site (tricorn) is due to be transformed by 2010 to include shops, cafés and restaurants, a four-star 150-bed hotel, 200 residential apartments, and a 2,300-space car park.

    Peter Sellers, comedian, actor, and performer was born in Southsea

    yep man, its funny, perth has 1.5 million peeps with a real low density, so it sprawls like a muthafucka, but cause its so isolated it can seem sooo laidback that you forget how its not actually 'small' as such. even melbourne only has around 479/km².
    I wana get to Pompey when I next go to UK, god knows when that'll be tho.

    but to answer apples, yeah I love wikipedia, especially for looking up bizarre shit. have you tried the random search function, it really reveals how much info is in there, topics you didnt know existed

    pompey is getting worse all theses bladdy foriegners moveing here and takeing my labouring jobs from me
    silly foriegners workin 4£ per hour for a 7/9£ per hour job is stoppin me from working in that genre so i say to people that want to come to pompey dont bother its shit and there aint nothing here for u ! maybe that explains why fareham has a large call center

    I actually hate Wiki. I tried to edit some DnB related information and someone erased it and marked my edit as vandalism.

    Not a wikipedia fan. I'm not going to waste my time with that. Theres so many other ways to waste ones time.... such as online multiplayer games. I need a new one of those myself.
