Welcome to this week's Quick Picks! We got just 2 titles this week, Blue Submarine No. 6 is a nostalgic one for me. I remember watching in middle school during the Toonami era. It's a good Sci-Fi series for new fans who love to see themes of war and environment. For Medaka Box, I would say would be the best one to give his 2 cents on it. I haven't watched it yet.

I hope you guys enjoy this week's releases.

I'm been working on the Winter Simulcast Guide 2014 for the community in the school's computer lab. When you work on something for long, your mind just drifts. I post weird blogs just to destress myself.

I googled Top Ten Places to Visit in the UK. What I got was:

  1. Stonehenge
  2. Big Ben
  3. Windsor Castle
  4. York Minster
  5. Durham Cathedral
  6. The Cotswolds
  7. Tower of London
  8. Lake District
  9. Warwick Castle
  10. Hadrian's Wall

From Touropia

Judging from their choices, I say Antropologist or a history fanatic will take up this one.

  1. Tower of London
  2. St Paul's Cathedral
  3. Westminster Abbey
  4. Windermere Boat Cruises
  5. Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, Yorkshire
  6. Chester Zoo
  7. Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew Gardens
  8. ZSL London Zoo
  9. Stonehenge
  10. Eden Project

From VisitBritainShop

Judging from their choices, I say a nature fanatic would love this with all the zoos and nature walks.

Don't pay attention to me because I post weird blogs when I'm working on something too long that my mind drifts easily.

If you're in the UK, you can tell me what places I should visit (If I ever get a chance to get out of the States).
