    OK, I'll try transcribing it. It _may_ take a while (it's SO worth it though :woo: :party: )
    Ah, don't worry just for me. I probably won't get much of it. Last time I learnt about anything like this was History in primary school.

    In the middle of the news conference with Mr Maliki, Iraqi television journalist Muntadar al-Zaidi stood up and shouted "this is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog," before hurling a shoe at Mr Bush which narrowly missed him.

    Showing the soles of shoes to someone is a sign of contempt in Arab culture.
    Lol!

    To be honest, I doubt there are many cultures where throwing a shoe at someone indicates your respect for them

    John Lewis have some great storage solutions, but they're a little pricy.
    Hmmm. I guess I'll make do with the cardboard boxes I've accumulated over the course of the term then...

    Clare's standard offer is 5 APs, 4 of which have to be 5 and the other a 4. http://clarecollege.com/admissions/h...reCollege.html

    I think the consensus is that APs are easier and shallower than A levels.
    It depends. On the UCAS tariff, some (e.g. Physics, Chemistry) are equivalent to a full A level, and others (e.g. Computer Science) are equivalent to slightly less than an AS level. Some students are able to do a lot because they start early - although APs are designed for students aged 16-18, in theory, once you're in high school (14-18), assuming the school permits it, you can start on an AP course immediately and take the exam the same year.

    There was a sign in the Magdalene plodge (above the may ball poster outside) about some service that sold cardboard boxes to students and would also make ones up of particular dimensions. No idea if it's still there - I suppose you could always go and have a look, but it might be a bit futile.

    APs are one year courses, so it's doing 10 APs is like taking 5 A levels (well, not really as the courses are different...) They tend to have broader but shallower.

    Well, the ones I bought are collapsible, but sturdy when up. Definitely worth the money for me because I have to move so often.

    I have, however, started the holiday work, much to my own surprise.

    Since my smilie list attention span is so short:

    :rofl: <- does anyone think that looks more like someone brushing their teeth?
    No. It is someone with a bandage covering the top part of their head having some sort of seizure with one arm sticking up.

    And :console: at your usertitle crags :p:

    Wow, I feel almost virtuous in comparison - is there a good story behind that, or is an all-night internet session to blame?

    No real story as such... I suppose I could blame it on The Wire. :p:
