Really? Maybe I should look into getting one?
Definitely! Girls totally dig it Although they will likely be obsessed with checking if you're a real Scotsman. However that may be right up your street

Completely off-topic, but have you heard about the William Wallace statue in Stirling? Apparently, the artists commissioned to do it just produced a statue of Mel Gibson, with 'FREEDOM' written large at the bottom. But because locals were so disgusted that Mel Gibson has taken the place of a national hero, the statue has had to be caged up to prevent damage from things chucked at it.

Oh, the irony.
I think I did hear something about that (Stirling is where I was born). Most people are just annoyed that as soon as you mention William Wallace, everyone thinks of Mel Gibson.

Can't think why. I love the idea that one of Scotland's national heroes is unavoidably associated with a possibly anti-semitic aussie midget.

On the subject of statues, does anyone know the horseman outside the modern art gallery in Glasgow? I /need/ to do that to a statue in Cambridge. Transfer a tradition so to speak.

Hehehe I'm sure it is. I just wouldn't wear it during winter if I was you.
BTW if you don't mind my asking, what college are you at?

Don't think I know it. Only one in Glasgow I can think of is the Dewar one that always has its glasses wrecked.

I know that statue!!

It sums up Glaswegian humour so well - who needs words?

My friend's dad got lifted putting the cone up there once!
I wonder how it would go down below the towering spires of Cambrdge...

Hey if the Scots don't want the statute I'm sure the students of Cambridge can find a use for it!

Have we another Scot on the forum? And one who appreciates Edgar Allen Poe?

SAS porter? Damn. Wouldn't want to mess with that.
How/where do colleges advertise the porter job is SAS people apply for it?

Highly sensitive noses these SAS Porters have. They can track you down on scent alone. No need for vision.

I'll throw a stink bomb in the porter's lodge first. Urgh, somebody set three off in the the one place at school today (6th year muckup day) Couldn't stop gagging all through geography

Nah, that would be a waste of good meat. A pencil will do.
