    Talking of sandwiches:

    in the 1880s, the IRA/IRB stole a sub from the US army to attack British ships from below. Problem was, they didn't know how it worked, and they couldn't exactly ask the Americans for instructions. So, to raise money, they toured it around Ireland and the US. One man, a baker called Dominic Conti, was so impressed with its shape, he called his sandwiches 'subs'. So when you hear about Subs and Subway sandwiches, it's because of the IRA.


    (I learned this recently)

    This BBC producer losing his shit in a road rage incident is the best thing you'll see today. "You're under citizens arrest! Put your hands on the car and get ready to die!"



    Threatening an eleven year old kid as well. Classy. Though I did read a comment saying the man has recently gone bankrupt or something, breakdown maybe?

    Are you going to Aberdeen? They've already started doing the student cards. I got an email and had upload a photo so I should be able to pick it up in a couple of weeks. Some places (Ableton for sure but I've heard of Apple Store doing it in the past too) will accept you taking in your acceptance letter. 

    RGU, went to apply for an NUS card and it tried to make me sign into the RGU portal and I don't have any log in details yet. Oh well just hope it all somes together before my spoitify is due for renewal.

    What, acceptance in to an educational institution where you will study? Yes, that's all you need for a student card.

    Yaldi, don't start until mid sept but have the letter etc. What card is this for the NUS one?

    Student discounts. Haven't even gotten my student card yet. But armed with an acceptance letter the world is my slightly cheaper oyster. 

    Is that all you need to get a student card?

    Lisa The Iconoclast is the best of the lot. I like the majority of those episodes, but it's still despite Lisa. Most probably because I peg Yeardley Smith as the worst voice actor on the show. Everything is delivered the same, in that nasal voice.

    They paint her as the liberal voice of reason, but she often ends up being a whiny poseur who sometimes sells herself out. I don't know if that's intentional.

    I think it is intentional. Or maybe it was at first when the show still had its heart and perfectly balanced humour and feeling.
