4 minute London
There's a saying "New York minute" meaning very fast; not sixty seconds as in the fast pace of NY. I've got a new one; "4 minute London" in homage to the 2012 Olympics and the blind optimism that that city will be able to handle all the visitors during that time.
The saying is inspired by the time boards on the Tube indicating the expected time of arrival of the next train. When it says 4 mins that could be anything MORE THAN 4 mins
