In Central London (UK) most buildings seem to have basements that stretch for the whole foudations of the building.
My dad noticed one day and now every available opportunity he says he wants to know how and where they moved all the earth to 150 years ago

Sorry but he's driving us nuts and I thought the knowledgeable dwellers of the pit would know the answer

landscaping, perhaps? road-levelling?
there's tons of uses for it.

your dad sounds like my 5 year old cousin.

Don't try engaging me

Ive just wiki'd it.

Apparantly, the victorians used to eat earth. It wasn't until the early 20th century that we developed sophisticated diets.

#13
4a.m.? did your dad wake you up to ask you this question? did he really need to know that desperately?

I think it's you that wants to know, not your dad. You're just making him the skapegoat so we don't think you're the retard.

you think that but if you ever met my father you would see he is not a retard he just doesn't have a good sense of logic

It may be me, but could they not have simply shipped it to the Netherlands in an effort to help expand their polder empires of the sea? I mean, the British are known for their generosity, especially towards the Netherlands.
#19
i kinda relised that the smater people the less logical they are.
ive known loads of smart people have no common sense what so ever.

it kinda makes sense as they usually end up in politics ****ing it up for the rest
#20

Simple, a elevendy-million-gazillion fairies each took a speck of dirt,
so all the dirt was taken to fairly-land.

They use the specks for pillows at night. They like their pillows firm.

what an asshole


but seriously man they probably moved with horse carrages and used the dirt for roads or miscalaneous stuff. Building house's, actually im kindof curious myself.

It was dumped in the Thames. It used to be much wider than it is now. (History channel ftw!)
