Re:

Sean, much as I'm sure you'd enjoy visitation rights to St Andys, I'm afraid you'd find few people you'd know. Coming from you, Mr Stewart, that seems a veritable plus at this point... And I do apologize for the mistake in my previous post. It seems I was driving through Cambridge, not Oxford--all ...

You forget that the Board have Ten has changed somewhat since you were here, Sean - a lot of the people who were elected as you were leaving are, well, no longer with us.[i] I do not forget that much has changed--this only makes the survival of this...unique...legacy that much more impressive.

Re:

AS a former year abroad student, I must say that the difference really is shocking. As an Honours Arts Students, I had four hours of courses per week, grand total, and the amount of out-of-class time (office hours) that were available was highly variable. Some professors teach seminars for undergrad...

Mr Wilson's Secret Life?

With an 'i'

Tom, Tom, Tom. Why is it that, if I search my soul, I know that you will have no objection at all to looking like Obi Wan Kanobe? "Obi-Wan Kenobi," spelled with an 'i.'

Tight-pants John

Barry, given that generally, as Mr Dyson once so nicely pointed out in LPH, I tend to wear trousers so tight it would take a crowbar to get me out of them, I doubt anyway that your mind would be powerful enough to succeed where so many others have failed. Please tell me that I am not the only one w...

Sinner Board Procedure

Well, I know you are going to rip me apart, With good reason, too. You seem to be suffering from the misapprehension that sinner message boards are a place for reasonable and intelligent decisions. I must inform you that, in this, you are sadly mistaken. Next time, try to be more insulting and/or b...

I just don't support the notion that because it's your soldiers, you MUST support them. Sure, support the individual, but don't support the idea behind it. No, you don't understand--not supporting the troops is a lynching offence ;) Anyways, the way the people who get on TV to speak of "supporting ...

Wish they all could be California girls...

Why do only the really dumb American girls post replies to this board (perhaps because it is a really shallow topic?), thus setting themselves up for the lambastes of trolls? I would point out that the most likely reason that all seem to think that American women are stupid and loud is that, in St A...

Not Just Lurid Orange...


Lurid orange, I'm afraid, is not quite my favourite colour.


Then run for office, and get one of the blue or purple ones ;-)

Or, if you switch to Divinity, you get a black one with a purple cross on the back. I hear it grants you the power to call down God's wrath upon sinners, to boot.....

Please go on arguing gentlemen, this has brought back so many memories from my (now sadly ended) time in St Andrews. I miss you all already! My thoughts exactly.

Summa Ineptia

It seems a very peculiar thing, in a country whose languages are many but do not include Latin, to base spelling on a language that is not only long gone but was never spoken in this country at all. Well, if the word, and its ending come from that language... ??? Once Norman-French fell from favour...

Well, I do not know who this "Wilmslow" fellow is, but if you are refering to me, then, yes--anything to procrastinate longer before having to learn my German dative constructions.

JYA experience

Oh wait, afternoon. I forgot that arts students don't do any work...
