    It is what 4 pound a week for a pouch and papers... that is nothing... I smoke straights which is a pack of 20 a day :eek:

    It smells wonderful and cancer? what cancer, no one I know has gotten cancer from smoking.
    Depends how much money you have. Due to lending a friend who I trusted some money when he was desperate (idiot got himself into deep dept with some.... unsavory types) and then him refusing to pay me back and now ignoring me I'm ludicrusly skint right now. Annoying as well as I know he has since been payed several times and each time has spent the money on illegal substances rather than actually paying me back :mad:

    Anyway, I am ludicrusly skint and I used to spend around £15 a week for the amount of tobacco I smoked.

    Wouldn't say it smellet wonderful, but as I say, the health reasons never really bothered me.

    Other than the commercial music station in the car, I don't listen to radio as BBC Radio like the BBC TV is full of leftist views

    Black books is awesome, but I've never smoked my own pubes. Nor have I ever smoked anyone elses. I have smoked oregano at some point though. I came fairly close to eating scrambled eggs out of a shoe with a comb though, I was drinking from a vase and eating cereal out of a saucepan using a fork.

    Yeah the problem is it goes too far towards a PC agenda, at GCSE level I did:

    Rise of the Nazi Party - damn and I was planning to lead a Fascist Party when I grew up aswell but now I realise it's wrong.
    Civil Rights in America - Doesn't have much relevance to British History, it's only in here to further the agenda of multiculturalism
    South African Apartheid - Same as above, the only link we have is that South Africa used to be a British colony and there are Anglo-South Africans.
    Israel/Palestine - Possibly the only useful world relevant subject of the four.

    Then Jack the Ripper for coursework (? - just incase our children decide to go around chopping up whores!) and some stuff on Bletchley Park. It's bad enough that our government used to see it fit to constantly shove multiculturalism down our throat believing we're not clever enough to accept it by ourselves, they have to tailor History curriculum choices around subjects which support their position. The only British history I actually did at GCSE level was coursework on a mass murdering lunatic and some code breakers. The only time the British Empire is even mentioned is in association with the slave trade, WW1+2 are only mentioned in social history, the American colonies and American Revolution aren't even mentioned. I could go on and on.

    History teaching before University level is pretty shocking. There isn't much point to teaching things like Victorian washerwomen or Victorian children's toys (both things we did pre-GCSE) when vast swathes of our history is ignored.

    Don't get me started on the strange reasoning for the Tudors being central to Primary School education. Quite why they are I have no clue, unless Y5's are interested in the reform of the Church of England and worshipping practices.
    Bletchley Park is some important stuff. The contributions of mathematicians and computer scientists to the war effort must be recognised, dammit!

    I watch the occasional live program, but apparently they're not allowed on campus as they can't get a warrant or something like that.

    The only person i know on campus who's been pestered more than the initial letter sent to everyone is the one person in my flat who tried to declare that he didn't need one.

    There are worse laws to break.

    And it shan't be a law I break for life.
