    Yeah I know, some of us are calling for more cuts But seriously, the general principles are good - now all they need to do is merge child benefits together and cap it at three children [somehow].

    You're 21 :eek: Have you ever been to University before? What topic would you choose then, assuming all goes to plan?

    My formal studies are on hiatus until September when I finally go to University - two years later than originally intended.
    I'm considering a piece on the sphinx. I've been doing a little research into it and it seems to me it was most likely originaly an anubis in the old kingdom that lost it's facial features (ears and/or nose) in the First Intermediate Period and had the face resculpted into the face of a pharoh in the middle kingdom. Still that could change. I like my ancient history. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy modern history as well, but I tend to find ancient and medieval history more interesting. One of my life goals is to read the visigoth interpritation of the bible.

    Yer, much later than I had planned mine too What are you going to study?

    That's quite good Tea, didn't know you were an old-fashioned romantic, thought you were a man of integrity and...war and stuff.

    never really been into poetry, I love some song lyrics though, sometimes listening to some good music is just about the only thing that keeps me sane!

    Right, Yes, Well... ancient Egypt is interesting I'll give you that. My knowledge of ancient history doesn't extent beyond an hour long documentary on the history channel about some curse or the Pharaohs. Ahh the history channel :moon: - Military history, now that's one extremely well watched channel in my house - definitely in the top five.

    What the hell is a visigoth interpretation of the bible -_-

    I will be studying Politics and Economics Might do a financial course or two as well as some environmental science/politics courses (if that is possible)

    I certainly wouldn't say I am a romantic, but certainly old fashioned in many respects. I am a man of the up most integrity

    It's an amazing poem - during college I had actually managed to memorise the whole thing... alas, no longer can I recite it entirely from memory.

    I have a book of his poems actually. There is a space on one of my shelves for the poetry books. Right next to it is "Medieval English Verse" which is an interesting read of an evening. It's an old Penguin Classic and it has that old book smell :love:

    I prefer to read them. I have a version of the three tragedies from maybe 50 years ago which just feels so awesome as the paper is thicker than they use now. The first "classic" (if we can call it that) novel I read was a really old, plain cover bound version of The Way of all Flesh my dad gave me in like year five. I am unimpressed that I lost it tbh

    Fellatio is one option, the other involves toaster art, Asda orange flower and papaya washing capsules and liberal helpings of man jam (also included in the first option).

    This is how Nick gained it so must you :moon:

    I've not slept.

    I am bored of life.

    I am watching Jersey Shore.

    Suicide is, unfortunately, the only option :emo:
