It can't be that big, or my apartment owners are lying. My 1 bedroom is apparently 750 sq. ft.

You'll get there like most Brits do, including all the old farts who made a killing in the UK property market, after eons of toil in the workhouse!

What do you think about Bob Geldof? I reckon he'd make a good tramp if he smartened himself up a bit!!

...then I'll keep quiet and not say a single word about our 4000sq.ft place, eh?

[edit] Just to hastily point out that it cost the same as our crappy 800sq.ft two-up-two-down in the pits of Surrey.

Well, of course there are other factors, but faced with the choice of living in shed in San Francisco or a mansion in Dallas for the same price, I know where I'd rather be!

Aye, that'll do! See, I'm not all about the biggest - I can happily cope in a mini mansion as opposed to a Full size Texas mansion!
