    Haha that's great!

    thats really is very funny. i wouldnt have the balls to do any of it, although it would be very amusing if someone else did! i love the first one, old bean

    During my 3 years at university I didn't really have any contact with a professer at all. They liked to hide in their offices. However most my lectureres did have PhDs.

    fricking hilarious!
    Another good thing to do in a computer lb is to log on to all the computers first thing in the morning, lock all the keyboards so no-one else can use them, and then come back at the end of the day, calmly sit down and say "oh, someones logged on" repeat at each computer.

    Really funny!!! Which ones did you try out HTT???
