Hear the checkout beeps at supermarkets at full volume… 

Participate in a children’s fun run... 

Drive on the roads around Buckingham palace... 

Go to IKEA...

Eat at McDonald’s...

Go to a food bank…

Watch something at the movie theatre besides the Queen’s funeral… 

Go to the British Library or London Zoo... 

Lock your bike in a cycle rack…

Shop at Primark, Harrods, Lidl, or Aldi... 

Recycle waste... 

Ride bikes during the queen’s funeral (without being judged)…


Take an uninterrupted flight at Heathrow airport… 

Experience a day of family fun at Legoland Windsor…

And finally, buy David Bowie’s blockchain…
