I would try if I was 18... I'd have to steal my dad's video phone anyway. The technical requirement definitely makes me feel behind the times... :oops: I hope a few Old Blues try, though. I'll pass it onto Guy Matthews (YOB), who's working as a researcher in Westminster at the moment. On the subject...

yes, they are still awarded (the school badge and the roman numeral badge), though as you say, there is little to do with them, since the only use of blazers would be if one had broken an arm, or similar (i.e. couldn't wear a housey coat). House badges have completely disappeared though (with the ex...

Well, I'm on the deps, looking seriously at a Gap Year Commission in the Army. I'm currently looking at the numerous Infantry and Cavalry regiments one might try to join; any advice on any which might seem particularly suitable to a (well, in the near future) Old Blue? Any personal experience which ...

so marty, as the anti-conspiracy nutters said, what happened to the plane and the people?
I just have to say, it does at least sort of look like a plane... Pity the camera was only recording at two frames a second though...

well, i've three buckles at the moment, all legitimate: a maths buckle (the one you can't keep), a house captain buckle, and the normal one, all different designs... In most cases, though, more than one buckle implies that someone is wearing one that they are not entitled to, if all of theirs are of...

While I'm sure that it's very easy to see EMA as money going directly from your pocket to be squandered by teenagers, and thus unfair, I think that this is a little naive. Surely Blair will have some economist telling him that, if pupils do sixth form, rather than leave school at 16, then they will ...

Actually, in new Maine, there are movement sensors on the lights in the toilets/showers/bathrooms, so that technology is being implemented. On the other hand, all the corridor lights stay on at half power during the night... necessary?

The Blue...

Thought here would be the place to ask: apart from general publishing quality improvements, what would the general consensus be on the new annual The Blue ? Any comments, ideas on what could or should be improved or changed for the coming year, re emphasis, layout I'm sure would be much appreciated ...

Dunno, about the 'sport' in question, but the whole concept of it brings back memories of Maths with DJO'Meara...

How many times would a piece of paper need to be folded to reach the moon... :roll:

Any takers?

well, the site linked appears to show that how good a deal you obtained really depends on the quality of the book: there are copies (presumeably very good condition) for up to $62, and Amazon list the book for £50. So it depends on the condition of your copy.

I notice that jhopgood uses the argument of the creation of Grecians' houses to suggest the house is getting less relevant. Even in Grecians' houses, pupils are divided into 'pods' by the house they come from. The original house numbers are retained (with a red or black line underneath to indicate G...
