    You think crabs, splashjackets, bumps, acidoketosis, etc are vaguely English?:p:

    However in other, only partially compsci related, news today I appear to have been offered a job at last! Woo!

    A.
    Hehe, it's ketoacidosis for starters. :rolleyes: The other three are all words - crabs and bumps are even words outside of rowing!

    A friend of mine came up with the perfect retort though - he had just come back from a RATS (Clare's Rockclimbing and Trekking Society) trip and was talking all sorts of technical stuff (bouldering, jambing, belays etc). A certain ex-UCS secretary, who is even more obsessed with rowing than me and Will put together, started to mock him for using all these funny terms. His reply was "Look, bumps, blades, feathering, f*** off!" Beautiful

    Congrats on the job! What is it?

    Hmm, time for me to go to town. I really should walk, but it's only just stopped an absolutely torrential downpour, which could well come back; I'm not quite sure whether I ought to take the car or not...

    Delia will tell you the answer!

    Bleh, I'm still at the lab, I want to go home but it's raining. Don't know if it's going to stop or get heavier, I got stuck in a torrent a couple of days ago .

    actually no... it depends on the type. Pike are spiky but carp and bream are not.
