    I don't mean to sound like an angry, bitter tool but...

    It's that time of the year where people are graduating, and thus posting their long arse essays about their triumph, whilst trying and failing to seem humble. I mean some of these people are solidly middle class, and then play to the stereotype of the common man overcoming all odds. Like Rocky of some ****. Are you serious man? One even went to a fee paying sixth form, but talks about how he's an immigrant, and lives in "South London".

    Wow, it's like you've read a book about archaeological digs and came to the conclusion Hitler was a T-rex.
