    Just from the last day or so:

    Lol - how was it you? You just passed on banter, which was appreciated by most. Clearly I'm just on a long post ranting spree that's indiscriminative of targets, so I should apologise if anyone :p:
    (Original post by Craghyrax)
    Clearly I only declared it illegal because I misunderstood it. If I had recognised that the example used was an impossibility I could not have assumed squeezebox was tempted to provide interviewees with last year's interview questions.
    (Original post by Craghyrax)
    Clearly that's only an improvement. I have no idea what you're complaining about :p:

    Just happened to notice this predilection and since you were discussing Pratchett's The Truth where the use of 'clearly' is mentioned (in relation to the Bursar, if you forget) :p: :p:

    Gah! Searching Varsity is really hard. Mainly because I can't remember the title of the article, and the keyword is probably 'subject' :rolleyes:

    Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic, for instance, seems not so much to be scraping the barrel of public regard as licking
    the underside of it, trying to get back in

    Yeah, I was being serious

    I was reading some Durkheim today and I just realised that it had absolutely no relevance to the real world (or at least to the career that I want to have). I wish I'd stuck with my first choice of applying to do two languages.
    I actually think Durkheim is one of the more relevant things we study :>.<: . Did you come across Merton's work on anomie within inner city communities?

    [COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]Cambridge has a heirarchy of degrees, and that mentality is conditioned into students from day one. Last year Varsity had a poll measuring subjects on two scales - the most useful and the most academic. Pretty indicative. IMO that's the same as attaching weight to the general posting consensus on TSR. Popular opinion does not equal truth. I think my life on TSR is about that :>.<:
    I can't find it :hmpf: I have only found the many ccomplaints from Vikings ASNaC's on how their degree is not worthless :p:

    Does anyone actually do their degree because it's 'useful'? I know I don't - I'm studying a so called 'useful' degree because I love it, not because I want to use it later. That is, I'm not studying Spanish and Russian to lead me anywhere, I just love them and love learning them, in pretty much the same way that I loved learning History at A level
    i couldnt agree more!!!

    Hmm, I met someone from Peterhouse. Did you come to Queens' silent disco? (Chances that it was you are very slim, but it's worth a shot :P It's worked twice so far, actually...)

    Most excellent. Me neither. The Peterhousean in question was outside watching people vomit at the time.
