    Tallness is overrated. I enjoy my height - new people never expect you to be dastardly (Best. Word. Ever! :awesome:), and tall people are less likely to beat you up for taking the mick out of them.
    This is true :p:

    Though is is quite easy to get crushed in large crowds :sad:

    chugger = charity muggers

    People who are paid to raise money for a given charity and are very insistent on it as most are paid some sort of commission basis.

    Fortunately I managed to avoid talking to them by scowling at them :p:

    I always end up in their clutches, giving some money because they are so insistent. But on the other hand I feel good about giving money to charity, although I prefer to give it without harrasment

    If I give money to charity it will be on my terms, not because someone is trying to force me.

    I got cornered by one on the last day of my exams. This being my first time in the city centre in about two months, I was coming down after spending the before mentioned two months constantly working about 16 hours a day, not eating properly and no sunlight. So when he came up to me I just kind of shrugged and decided to have a nice wee chat. We walked all the way down one big long street in Glasgow with him asking me questions. The gist of it going "I'm so so tired. I'm a medic. I'm contributed to poverty by being a future doctor, please take pity and leave me to die in a corner"

    Well, she was given few tutorials by my granddad and her ex-husband, but because it always ended in them shouting at her she hired an instructor :p: So I don't think she had much of prep

    I remember doing a similar english exam with sunburn down my left arm, I also managed to sit in the one spot of sunlight in the room so I was roasted.

    On the medic exam day strangely, I got home at about 2am, managed to get up at 5am, down for a coffee by 6am and I wasn't the only one milling around! Medics are just so much more diehard than what I'm used to!

    Haha, I'd best be careful in case Subcutaneous finds the thread and leads a witch hunt :mob: :p: That's some good driving genes in the family, make sure he knows he's the weak link (if he doesn't pass first time )

    That might be a little mean. I will probably still do it :p:

    though he will get less flak than a friend who failed the theory :rofl:
