    I go to Oxford.

    I visit you down for a weekend to get a realistic view of the people who I study along side, some of these people struggle to even boil an egg let alone run a country effectively. But in all seriousness, I don't think many people on TSR could even grasp how hard it is to run a country.

    That's not what I meant. I.e. you can learn, how to boil an egg, within seconds. I.e. it takes seconds to learn, how to boil an egg.

    That's not a reason for keeping ex-polys open. It's like saying we shouldn't put paedophiles and rapists into jail as they may have the cure for cancer.
