    Anyways I want be a roadman because I believe that I apply the skills that I have acquired by roaming on road when im riding out being a roadman has become my life time ambition and I believe that I have the right tracksuits and qualifications to strive my career into the gang life and become one of the best gang member in history. Its peak for the roads when I finally finish my masters on roadology. Selling drugs to nitties on the curb side has really caught my interest in the past two days, I didn’t choose the road life the road life chose me. My mama and priest tried to put sense into me…I had to drop them ******* therefore I have met all the criterias possible in btec national gangbanging. Through my work, I have met the right gang mentors and road believers, who want to help me fulfil my dreams on this ting.

    This one is grate:
    Repeat Repeat Repeat

    "Economics is a diverse subject, as economics can be related to anything, especially during economic crisis, which forces to think economically, whereas maths has been long one of my favourite subjects, as mathematics can be applied everywhere, moreover, mathematics is useful in everyday life."

    HUGELY disappointed that they didn't pick up on:

    If I had been completely honest in my UCAS application 10 years ago ( :shakecane: ), my PS would have been very short and to the point:

    "Yo J.S. Bach, I like you and Imma let you finish, but ABBA have the best tunes of ALL TIME :danceboy: :nutcase: :yep: :cool: :party:

    PS. PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME "

    My Masters and PhD proposals would have read the same as that :smartass:

    (Side note: they should totes let you stick TSR smileys in a PS :yep: )

    I can't recall that myself, but GCSEs were a while ago now!

    And I wasn't saying they can't do it (in case that's what you thought I was implying!)
    I assume it's some sort of industrial agriculture degree. *shrug*

    Who writes a PS saying they want to be a farmer? I can't imagine there are many uni-educated farmers out there (they just don't need it surely?)

    There are some amazing quotes here :lol:
    If you want to run a farm you need to know a considerable amount about such things as soil structures, farm economics and agribusiness, land management, plant science, plant and animal diseases, nutrition, genetics, agrichemicals and so on.

    The amount of science and technology available to run a productive, modern, farm requires some highly educated people. Newer generations are are the forefront. If you want to hold the backwards view that farmers have no need for education that's fine but I can assure you there's plenty I have personally witnessed giving vets a run for their money in terms of knowledge.

    "Let me in! Let me in! Or I'll blow your - wait sorry. I have this awesome joke, though: This guy is telling his daughter bedtime story, and he's saying - "Then the 92nd little pig built his house out of depleted Uranium, and the wolf was like, dude..." So yeah, this is why you need to let me in on your science courses - I'll be able to tell awesome (burrowed) jokes! Oh, btw, I have a great maths joke - there are 10 people in the world: those who understand binary, those who don't and those who didn't expect this joke to be in base 3. Works with any base, actually, although it's better written than spoken. So yeah, as a plus, I would like to apply for maths, except that I prefer biology/cellular biology/biochemistry/organic chemistry/physics/blowing the house up. Then, as a bonus, I can tell you more about respiration then you know yourself, draw the structures of all the amino acids and just generally boast to bolster up my self-confidence and probably sink all possible chance of getting into your University. Sorry, me."

    Someone once said to me:

    'Why would I have paid the UCAS fee if I didn't want to do the course? That could have paid for a night out, and if that's not commitment to geography, I don't know what is'.
