That was my point, it wouldn't though, because the stat would have a majority of "people" being over 18.

That was my point, the stat wouldn't at all imply that on average, a class of 16-17 year olds could have 1/20 drug users, as you suggested.

And yes Phil, I think I can debate in the sub-forum.
Good, then you have made your point clear.

Neithere did I imply what you thought as well, it was an OBSERVATION statement. Compared with the RAW data, with otehr factors ignored.

Of course I am well aware of any other factors.

Sigh. Have you ever thought it would be possible not to have your little arguments and do something constructive like meet up (since you do live a ridiculous four piffly miles from each other) and develop a nice friendship?
That would be nice.

An argument is a rational debate.

You're thinking of a row.

We have been debating/arguing.

Possibly hoping for too much and living in my cloud of happiness with no exams looming. I'll stick to Economics. G'way...
I did offer him the use of the PM service. In ALL of our "debates"

You are hoping for too much, but still aim for the sun and all that...

But you said that according to the stat, your class would have (on average) 1/20 taking drugs. You then proceeded to say that it is infact 5/20.

I appreciate that it was an observation, but I didn't see the link for you to say "according to the stat". The stat doesn't really let you make such a comparion of this "1/20" in teh first place really.

Well from the stat we see a 5% usage. We are assuming homogenised population, a perfect sample if you weill.

So what I was infering from the stat was that while in a class from this perfect population we see a 1 drug user, in actual fact, with the other varying factors included we actually see a higher usage.

And then the debate can grow from hereon...

Oh, you just wait. I'll make bono apply to Cambridge and then you can meet each other at interviews Yes, he could do...erm, engineering. It's not really debate, more like kiddie squabbling.
Physcial NatSci is more Bono's thing, isn't it? He wants to study Physics after all.

Bono?

Come on guys, if it was anyone else, you wouldn't be picking on these minor details. I'm fine with it, but do you have to do it in every single thread the other person posts in?

Quite cute though
Excellent. I look forward to competing with him in Cambridge. Medicine for me, and physics for him.

Though I could just turn up on the physics interview day for the hell of it.

Well, it happens. Hones our debating skills. Just put both of us on the ignore list.

Yes, but chances are, he won't get in as he only does Maths and Physics. No third science which is so highly desirable for Natural Sciences. Engineering is a lot more likely, I think.
No, Engineering's science criteria is more stringent than NatSci. For example, they prefer you to have a third science at A2, whereas for NatSci they prefer a third at AS.

I'll admit that I've never glanced at the Science pages of my prospectus before today
So you now know that I'm right.

If I did apply for Physical NatSci, then my options would be perfectly fine as long as I said that I wanted to take the Maths/Physics/Comp.Sci modules, not the other types which require Bio/Chem, which there are many.

That is the point of the NatSci tripos - Some may be more sciencey, and some more mathsy/comp. sciey....

But it's Ox anyway, that I would apply to.

Anyway, why are we having a discussion about the hypothetical subjects he could study at Cambridge when he's going to apply for Physics at Oxford? :rolleyes:

Gah, you've avoided my point! Bono's subjects fit Engineering a lot better than NatSci! Gods, you're so bloody infuriating.

Now you know how it feels to be "debating" with another person who has a particular thought train?

You eren't wrong about the Physical NatSci thing either.

Chem A-Level is only good if I want to take the modules which need this.

If I apply to Cam (I won't), as long as i say "I want to go down the Maths/Physics/Comp.Sci route" then that is fine, according to the website etc.

Like drugs, pornography can be very addictive and damaging. Furthermore, pornography can be an agent of marital breakdown, where one member becomes "hooked". Many of the "actors/actresses" become involved in the industry because of exploitation, and many get STDs.

Do you agree?
dont care.it is all right if its tasteful and funny like the stuff you see on eurotrash and tarrant on tv

No law should be made abridging the freedom of speech, press or religion unless it encompasses direct violence against the person or property. Whether we agree with something or not we must allow a person to hold their own opinions
