They’re dead, dead people don’t tend to be out and about.

Where are all the Roman soldiers who invaded Britain?

I’ve not seen any.


The blood lines however of the Roman soldiers along with the later Viking visitors blood lines to your fair island live on.

Might be interesting for you to take a drug store DNA test my friend.

@BillRM,
You can be so literalist at times.

No drug stores over here.

It’s called cultural insensitivity, the crass assumption that everywhere else is just a watered down version of where you’re from.

So stores that sell drugs do not exist in the UK!!!!!!!!!

Must be hell for anyone with a headache and looking for example to buy aspirin or wish to buy other similar things that are normally sold in the US at places call drug stores.

Btw where are all the corona patients in all the talk shows???!!!

It really is all a hoax , folks!

No dead celebrities, no corona patients in talkshow and on and on it goes.
In reality nothing out of the ordinary is going on.

A hoax used to give up our freedoms, and look how easily people do that!
It is really unbelievable!

@BillRM,
Sneering cultural insensitivity.

Being pigignorant isn’t something to be proud of.

Most places sell aspirin and paracetamol. You can pick it up in newsagents, super markets and petrol stations. I

@izzythepush,
So once more the UK do not have similar stores to american drugs stores as I have some memory of that they are called chemist as a matter of fact.

To google to do research

@user Um. Boots refer to themselves as Boots the Chemist, though they do use the word "pharmacy" to describe the parts of their business that sell medicines. And, as far as I can see, ABC actually refer to themselves as ABC Drugstore (!) but they're far from being one of the largest UK chains: they only have a few shops, all of which are in London. They don't even seem to have a website! – David Richerby Dec 7 '14 at 10:24

Aha! The answer underneath this holds the key to my confusion - chemists contain pharmacies. The che/mists around my area all have pharmacy on a big sign with or next to the name. Today's fact has been learnt! Smile – Dom Dec 7 '14 at 10:28
Chemist is still the de facto name. Pharmacy would be widely understood, Drugstore would usually be understood, but neither would often be used by a native speaker – Jon Story Dec 8 '14 at 9:59


Now why the hell did you made a big deal over the UK name that mean the same as drug store in the US????????????

@BillRM,
Now why couldn’t you have done that beforehand?

It wasn’t exactly a labour of Hercules.

We don’t have drug stores we have chemists or pharmacists.

Why are you so interested in my genetic heritage?

I’m English, we’re a mongrel race, I don’t need a DNA test to tell me that.

LOL why did you make a big deal over the name when you must had known that drug stores in the US have the same meaning as chemist or pharmacists in the UK????

Next we all for the most part are of mixed races with my being roughly one half English and one half Scandinavia IE most liking my viking ancestors visit your island IE raid your island at one point and then settle to raise families before moving to the colonies.

No big deal but I did find it interesting.

footnote now I have an idea why that when I used to go sailing many years ago with a friend of mine that after a few rum drinks I feel like ramming and boarding the other crafts with special note of those with good looking women IE my blood calling to me over the centuries it would seems........LOL

I simply said we don’t have ‘drug stores’ over here. We don’t.

Vikings never drank rum either.

@BillRM,
It’s not.

Our chemists don’t have bar stools or a ‘soda fountain.’

Use the correct terms.

I’ve not said what you should call your shops. I don’t live in your country and I’m not some fascist with a huge sense of entitlement.

Lord soda fountains you would need a time machine able to go back to the 1950s.
It would be nice to have them however.

Do you not know what a drug store is? Pretty simple words when put together means something.
