Does anyone have any funny stories, maybe about the tube, or traditions that have died a death in more recent years? (Just curious....)

For the tube try:

on this forum.

Beatings:

Otherwise just searching through 15,000 odd postings should keep you busy!!

On my squits (Christmas 92) before crazy marching, Lamb stole all of the house standards and barracaded themselves in the dorm - I remember about 300 people trying to force themselves up Lambs fire escape with Mr Talkington trying in vain to calm the situation...

That's quite a novel idea. If we tried that today, we'd get murdered. Are we students less brave nowadays do you think?
