  1. Creationism has no place in a science class. End of. There is no science in it at all, its a religious belief and hence its place lies within an R.E class along with all the other religious creation tales.

     

    I'd rather remove the topic from the curriculum then teach kids something thats a huge steaming pile of diseased rhino piss.

  3. It actually kinda reminds me of how violent attacks on teachers have gone from being pretty much non-existent in the early 90's to a fairly common thing (last I heard was over a 5000% - yes five thousand I didn't add an extra 0 by mistake :icon_lol: - increase in them, so from 1 a year to 5000 a year etc - not a lot of room for statistical massage in that :D ).

     

    Which isn't directly linked to gang-like murders and such, but IS another symptom of the underlying issues that have caused both to occur.

     

     

    [pedant] a 5000% increase would be from 1 per year to 50 per year. Still a shocking stat if true, but there is a huge difference between 5000x and 5000% [/pedant].Think about the stuff they print, as a lot of it is for shock value.

  4. Cheers Guys!

     

    Bit more of a sedate birthday this year, had the celebrations on friday as it wasn't a sunday!

     

    As for getting up for a piss-up, It looks like i'll be seconded out to Bristol in september which makes the commute just about possible! So I should be able to get to some next season. Last game i was at was the Lillestrom game after the 5 aside last year

  5. I think we'll play 4-4-2, with Owen and Viduka the main pairing.

     

    I still have a lot of faith in Ameobi having a good season though, which means that all 4 main strikers are going to be pissed off being on the bench after a while.

     

    Can't see that we have the players for a 4-4-3, and it's the midfield that still worries me (especially as we're not selling Emre and getting in a decent playmaker).

     

    Rush keepers?

  6. Not worked any overtime yet, not needed to though so alls good. Get normal time if I do work it though, just have fill in a ridiculously complex and detailed form to claim the money...

  7. Clive Lloyd got a Doctor of Laws on my Graduation day, good speech too.

     

    Rik, do you know where you'll end up on your MSc course?

     

    I'm doing part time, with Uni of Manchester. The modules I'm doing are in Manchester, Birmingham, HMS Sultan and Imperial College.

  8. Back to uni for me as well now. Doing an M.Sc in Nuclear Technology with NTEC. The application form is more complex and detailed then any I've seen before and for my current job I needed to sign the official secrets act... I thought they'd make it easier for themselves to grab the money.

    how amazing does that phone look? 5 MegaPixel camera? :jesuswept:

     

    I think I'll wait till this comes out.

     

    Current phone has 3.2MP camera, photos taken on it look terrible compared to my ancient 2MP camera. Phones always have crap lenses so the photos will always look shoddy compared to a real camera. Only good for drunken photos or when you want to get information off a PC screen and can't find a pen...

  10. Without question - its the Sonny Eriksen W880i.

     

    I've got that. Lovely phone, only two complaints. The ring tone is a bit tinny, and it's 3G. Seems like a lot of wasted functionality since O2 don't offer it as far as I am aware though.

     

    I'm not changing from S-E again mind, certainly not to Motorola. My last RAZR was nothing but hassle.

     

    O2 do do 3G, you just need to get a 3g sim card to use it. Phone 202 and they'll send you one out.

     

    I've got the k800i, best phone I've ever had, its a bit old mind, due a new one in november. If you are already on a contract remember to phone up and upgrade that way, you get much better deals. I got half price line rental for 12months and 500 extra texts for free.

    Down here I automatically got a new sim card from O2 with my W880i. Perfect phone imho.

     

    I'm still only on the 2G one, the upgrade sounded alot like hassle since it involved getting a new number then having to get my current number transferred to the new sim. I don't use the net on my phone for anything other then checking football scores when i'm out some place so i don't need the 3g anyway...

  12. I will be applying for University very shortly, so at the moment I am making up/exaggerating a load of stuff.

    Does anybody know any good tips for personal statements besides 'be honest' and 'write stuff that relates to the course you're applying for'?

     

    Also, which University in the North-East is the best?

     

    The statement doesn't really make much difference, unless its an uber competitive course (or Oxbridge). If you get the grades you won't have a problem. Having said that put just follow the above cliches and you'll be fine.

     

    Best Uni's in the North East solely on reputation are Durham and Newcastle, although the others may be good on certain courses. Do a little research on the course you want to do with the guardian or times uni guides and that tells you the best for them.
