News is only good news when fresh and unexpected, it isn't fresh and put isn't really that unexpected either

I only just saw it and I figured as it was on the BBC news channel it was new. But no, we all knew it'd happen.

I wish.
Found out last night that the exam I have Tuesday morning is proof heavy and light on calculations. i.e. I'm boned.
Still expect it will be an early evening at the bar though.

I'm hoping that the proofs are the relatively trivial ones like proving something is a vector space kinda thing where you just apply the relevant axioms/theorems, so in reality it kinda is computation, rather than proving theorems.
To be fair, given how little I went to this year for various reasons I'm ultimitely just aiming to do well enough to transfer to the masters course and pull everything back up later.

I think it was you that said about 'the guinea pigs' book in one of your other posts when on the topic or torture and death penalty.

I just wanted to say thanks for that, I've read it and found it to be an extremely interesting read! Have a free pint on me!

**** off am I doing all nighters. I only do those for games
Most of the theorem proofs seem pretty similar so far, still a pain to understand, too many words!!!

It's less the words, more the notation thrown in. Just reading through the lecture notes so don't fully understand what stuff is and just work out roughly what it means via context. Would be nice if all the formulae an text were separate like in most modules, like a block of text then a couple of lines of derivation then a bit more text, but nooooooo, \varphi(v)s, \psi(u)s and **** all over the text.
Probably going to end up sat at the bar later reading the lecture notes instead of the paper.

And can anybody explain why the opposition get Short Money, I kinda vaguely understand it but at the same time think the quantities seem a bit exorbitant, and more specifically why the parties in government don't get any, not even at a lower rate?

Hi there, are you impatient? If so buy some 'Shut Up' pills, these pills will make you less impatient and teach you to be quiet and wait like an Englishman.

'Shut Up' a division of **** Associates LLP. 'Shut Up' is a registered trade mark in the US and other territories. Please take 'Shut Up' responsibly. Please consult your GP before taking 'Shut Up'.

Edit: I would like to point out that this is a joke, anyone not able to take a joke should be shot like the strikers.
