    My ever-cynical English teacher once said that she believes a key reason in the apparent 'dumbing down' of Higher English over the past 5 or so years is its necessity for progressing onto a great deal of university courses -- the SQA is effectively trying to give everyone a fair chance. I dunno what to think of that.

    An ever-cynical English teacher once said that he believes the Communists are responsible for the 'dumbing down' of exams. Those pesky Socialists. Though if the Nazis had their way, the females would be learning how to sew, cook and be a good mother and wife, while we would be working on the auto-bahns. Thank god, Hitler blew his brains out.

    Yeah, I'd much rather be in a gulag and have my testicles tortured by the NKVD than work on some roads and return to a good wife. :awesome:

    Do you usually wake up, having people wink at you, you asking them questions, and those people saying,

    "THE FIRST RULE OF THE BEAR CLUB IS YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE BEAR CLUB!"

    then you find out you've created a project called, 'Project Bearhem'

    Your standard of living won't be great if you do with the Nazis, better than it was during the Great Depression, but not great. Food would be expensive, you would be doing back breaking work and you'll have to join in tolchocking the Jews, and getting all excited when you see the Fuhrer or hear him speak. Still....better than having to share your wages with some jakey. :p:

    "Well, I'm still here. But I don't know for how long. That's as much certainty as anyone can give me. But I've got some good news: I no longer have any fear of death. But... I am in a pretty lonely place. No one will have sex with me. I'm so close to the end, and all I want is to get laid for the last time. I have pornographic movies in my apartment, and lubricants, and amyl nitrite..."

    I was talking to the Glasgow and Strathclyde admissions officer today - they were visiting the college to give information. The glasgow guy said that I'll be fine if I get AA in HB & Chem, and the Strathclyde admissions officer was amazed I was doing 5 Highers in my first sitting, and I have a good chance for biomedical science.

    Mind you, I was supposed to be researching something about Jekyll and Hyde at the time...damn you nicotine :mmm: I kind of got a kick up the arse the other day when I got 15/25 for an critical essay on smeddum...I didn't write enough :mmm::awesome:

    :rofl: I couldn't help but laugh at that bit, despite the woman heading for certain death. In the movie, there's so many clues that Tyler and the other guy are the same person. Bit harder to spot them in the book.

    Fixed it. The bit where the dude is in the hotel and he sees the introduction to the hotel on the TV, and all these waiters and chefs saying 'welcome'. Well if you pause it, you can see Tyler Durden. Also, where Tyler is being beat up by the owner of the bar, you can see Ed Norton wincing and clutching his stomach as Tyler is being owned. Also, the valet guy who delivers the car, with Ed Norton and Tyler Durden, he says 'I kept the car for you' directly to where Ed Norton stands and not Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt)

    It's been a few years since I last seen it, actually. You're making me want to go put it on now! I will never forget the time I stayed with my friend aged about 7 or 8, and his mum had Fight Club on Sky Movies or something. The part where the blonde guy gets done in (Angel Face?)... :p: stayed with me forever! Trauma. I think that besides those little clues though, it'd probably have been easy enough to guess they were going to be the same person simply because that twist has become so common. It isn't all that subtle, I guess. Oh and; that last scene where they're looking out of the skyscraper, with the Pixies song in the background... gorgeous.
