Useless facts drummed into you at school


#1

These are nearly all related to local historical acheivements and the like that were repeated ad infinitum by your history master…

that sex is dangerous

that fucking your girlfriend over a table in the maths department was an offense you’d both get suspended for - yes we got caught - we were in 6th form.

oh and throwing a stash of porno mags out of the window to try and stop the RE teacher from getting at your revision materials - 4th year got suspended - and was warned I’d go blind looking at such things - not true, short sighted maybe, blind no

if you look at the alcohol thread you might see why delusions are setting in…3 double gin Gibsons, 1 G&T and 3 shpts


#17

I really do admire your application in that thread, you are an inspiration to us mere beer monsters.

Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain

Anoher stupid mnemonic that is taking up space in my head, I will never forget, and have never used.


#19

we are pondering joining our neighbours in the pub - Louise tells me id better put some clothes on first

You MUST turn up every day.
