    How many Scottish students does it take to change a lightbulb? (I did not write this)

    Glasgow University - 76
    One to change the light bulb, fifty to protest the light bulb's right not to change and twenty-five to hold a counter protest.

    Strathclyde - 5
    One to design a nuclear powered bulb that never needs changing, one to figure out how to power the rest of Scotland using that nuked light bulb, two to install it and one to write the computer programme that controls the switch.

    Caledonian - 7
    One to change the light bulb and six to throw a party because he didn't screw it in upside down this time.

    Edinburgh - 1
    He holds the bulb and the world revolves around him.

    St Andrews - 3
    One to call the butler and two to arrange a tailor in Rome to design and make new suits for the special occasion. If a light bulb in a major building blows then increase to 27 to allow for a brass band playing the last post and five Sun reporters. The following day's Sun will contain something along the lines of "Will's Pals in Blown Bulb Horror".

    Heriot Watt - 3
    One to change it and two to figure out how to get high off the old one.

    Napier - Only one, but he gets 10 course credits for it.

    Dundee - 10
    One to buy and fit the bulb and nine to petition for the electrification of Dundee.

    Aberdeen - 2
    One to change the light bulb and one to crack under the pressure.

    Stirling - 0
    Stirling looks better in the dark.

    RSAMD - 5
    One to change the bulb and four to do an interpretive dance about it.
    Don't really understand what that is about? I'm going to Aberdeen next year though . The Glasgow one is quite funny. My Brother went there and was fed up with the notorious left wing militants in the Geography departments.

    The Napier one though - lol.

    Pretty much, when the majority of your life is spent on how to get to the next part rather than enjoying where you are.

    Surely you could never generalise the population of a university, as the people who go to uni usually come from all over the country/world, and from all backgrounds as it's not like you have to be wealthy to go to uni anymore.

    The only exceptions might be Oxford/Cambridge, who seem to have a preference for little rich boys/girls who are from middle/upper-class families, and will not accept you even if your grades are straight A's/A*'s, as i know working-class people who've applied with these and been rejected. So you can't deny that the people who go to these particular uni's are well-off. They might be the exception.
