    So, as long as your immediate interests are served, you don't really care?
    The dispute is nothing to do with me. As long as there's classes on then I'll come in and go to them.

    It's starting to look like I've walked into a live battlezone here rather than a university. The management, in their infinite wisdom, decided to contact all students apologising that their education was being disrupted by "militant left-wing" unions, and demonstrating their sincerity by promising that anyone who refused to cross the picket line on the next strike date (3rd of December) if their classes weren't cancelled would be counted as an unauthorised absence in breach of the Satisfactory Student Code, and could face disciplinary action. Cue students going absolutely berserk and promising not to cross the picket line (myself included), and the union going back on it's previous agreement by using the last 10 minutes of each lecture this week to explain why they're striking, how the attack on their conditions hurts students too and urging them to join staff on the picket line. We've already had the marking of our coursework delayed due to the work-to-rule, and I have a feeling management is going to be none too happy with the union over this latest move.
    Thats a cheap move by the management, all they managed to do was make things worse. If they sent that out to me i'd be first on the picket line

    I assure you I will be on the 3rd of December. Unless of course they actually give the staff a decent wage and it's called off, but I think we're more likely to see Cameron and Osborne declare their love of Marx and the immediate abolition of private property.

    Any single bed sharing experiences? How old are you, by the way? Seeing the word husband on TSR is pretty rare.
    Oh no, I was innocent then... I'm 24. We met at 16 and married at 21 because we didn't want anyone else.

    Waah! How does that even happen. It has done stuff, albeit on the smaller scale, but stuff nonetheless.

    Well the UN only exists because we agree that such a thing exists. If we agreed it does not exist, it is merely a collection of self-interested nations, then we'd arrive at that view

    Huil as the City of Culture in 2017! With the judging panel headed by the producer of Brookside and the person who brought us Hollyoaks. The judging panel's Mum and Dad , they ****ed them up, as Philip Larkin might have put it.

    I'm shocked Hull won it having spent a few years here. To be brutally honest there isn't much culture about the place except a good museum and a decent theatre. Although I guess it has some nice pubs and maritime history links.

    At least the place will hopefully get some much needed investment!

    Would it be terribly rude if I told a 16 year old to stop worrying about a "partner for life", get a grip and maybe even some GCSEs?

    Sounds like great advice! I'm sure they'll thank you eventually if you give it.

    Surprising victory for Hull - I was rooting for Leicester.

    Hopefully some much-needed investment will now be heading towards the Humber.

    That is very interesting and although I am generally skeptic about early relationships, I do wish you the best. You seem to be either a perfect match for each other or very mature, perhaps both. I can hardly imagine myself in that situation.

    I had an odd dream a few weeks back. I went into space in a less than stable but huge spaceship and for some reason we had to get down so I had an RPG and shot the window of the ship and for some reason that took it out of orbit and it was falling and I jumped out while it was falling into the sea. It was strange but very vivid, what was your dream?

    Well, you might think I'm a bit weird, but here we go

    I had a dream I was in Arbroath (it's not somewhere I regularly go by the way :lol:) with my mum, dad and cousin. For some reason though, Karen Gillan was my cousin. I could tell it was her, and in the dream she was distinctly my cousin. So it kinda got blurred there, and sometime later it turned out we'd lost my cousin Karen. We knew she was fine though, because we could see that she was posting on Facebook and Twitter. We did some searching, and found out there was a homeless shelter, and for some reason only my subconscious will know, we were dead set that that was where she'd gone (it was getting late).

    On the way looking for her, there was a clothes shop we went into. I saw a polo shirt and thought it was nice, and it was the same as one I have. I looked at the price and it was 1000. I knew the currency (it was a different currency, don't ask why) was converted into sterling by dividing by 3, so it was about £300. I thought it was really expensive and dismissed getting it, then I saw it was massively reduced to 300 (so £100) and after briefly considering I came to my senses and realised it was ridiculous and left.

    After we left, we were walking through a main-ish shopping street (kinda like a busy small street you get in villages, but not really small) and we saw my cousin Karen.I realised it was her and was so happy that I ran up and gave her a hug because I was so relieved to have found my cousin.

    The End.

    I don't usually talk about dreams, but this one was just so ridiculously bizarre I had to get it off my chest :lol:

    I've had dreams similar to yours, in the sense that they're extremely vivid. I used to have a recurring dream that I was on a plane that crashed. Most of the time when it was on the way down I actually wake up crapping myself in the middle of the night, but one time the plane crashed into the sea and I was swimming in the sea with all the other passengers trying to keep afloat.

    You'd better delete that, or by next week we'll have the Government warning us it's evidence of dire hyper-inflation after Scotland goes independent and then decides to set up its own currency

    I seem to recall you imagined many of us with remarkable similarity to real life!

    I dreamt last week that England were bowled out for 24 runs by Australia. It looks like it may not be reality thankfully.
