Because I don't know a huge amount about Glasgow, I was having a look on the web for pages about the place, and found a few useful pointers on the Glasgow Survival Guide. It has advice like don't use the toilets in central station, and devotes an entire section to "weapons". Under "culture", however, I was enlighted by these words:

If I were to sum up the culture of Glasgow in a few words, those words would be Football, Violence, Neds, Knifes, Buckfast, Tanning Parlours, Giros, Number 62 buses……..actually no, it is impossible to sum up Glasgow's culture in a few words. Glasgow is an incredibly complex place so the only real way to understand it is to come and live here for a while.

Nice. Maybe I will.
