    Sir Jonny has an awesome ring to it. It shall be my new life aim to become a knight and ride around in shining armour on a horse.
    Sounds like a plan :teeth:

    That reminds me, someone once told me that if you went to an exam in a full knight's armour and riding on a horse and holding a sword, you would get a pitcher of ale :rofl2:

    Look at number 2 here :p:

    Definitely. :teeth:

    Although there's many possibilities as to what that might be - is my name a humourous one, am I hideously deformed, do I have 17m friends (or none), am I really Tom Cruise?
    I'm gonna go for... you're just dragging it out so our minds wander :p:

    I am now picturing you as Tom Cruise in shining armour, on a horse, holding a sword, with a stethoscope around our neck and having a pitcher of ale to your side :awesome:

    LOL

    I look at them and sometimes they are so badly written I just close the window!
    I did that for 3 of them. One looked more like a philosophy/theology PS, so I ran into my corner :getmecoat: :lol:

    Hmmm, I heard a slightly different story. It is thus;

    All students have to wear sub fusc (a dark suit, white bow tie, cap, gown) for their examinations. If you wear full fusc, you are automatically granted a first.

    Full fusc is a full suit of mediaeval battle armour. :holmes:

    I will get it eventually, I can just never be bothered. I'm very good at putting off minor tasks, so that they never get done.

    And that is a truly awesome description, perhaps sig-worthy. :teeth: Although when it happens you will have to replace the ale with cider, and use a bosom-rich maiden to carry it at my side. :p:

    Failed my test...

    Was this a first attempt? I failed my first attempt I came to a tricky junction, didn't align myself properly causing myself to swing onto the opposite side of the road, panicked, stalled and to top things off, accidently switched my windscreen wipers on (it was a dry, sunny day) :facepalm:

    can't you try calling them frequently and see if they have had any last minute cancellations?
