Saloon Bar / Re: A levels have got harder

This was obvious during my miserable time at the "University" of Derby earlier this year  noooo: noooo:  The whole system is corrupt. The latest scam is Year Zero where they put questionable students  (e.g. those with the wrong A levels) into a revision/conversion year to try to get them up to scratch and then a three year degree course. So that is 4 years of £9250 instead of three. Kerching.

Universities are now utterly ruthless in the pursuit of dosh  noooo:

It's not just the students that are getting screwed over either, Falmouth has deteriorated dramatically over the years since it became a university town. House prices have gone through the roof down here because the uni keeps raising student numbers each year while putting the bare minimum it can get away with towards accomodation. Not to mention the essential services that are now snowed under because they haven't got the resources deal with the increasing numbers.

The Library / Re: The Upcoming Movie Thread

Was curious about this film when it was first announced, right up to the point where I found out that they had got rid of Henry Coxwell (a record breaking balloonist at the time who was on the actual balloon flight with Glaisher and was instrumental in averting a catastrophe mid flight by releasing a trapped valve when the balloon ascended so high up that they began to pass out) and replaced him with some random female character instead.

I'm starting to think they should have an irony category in the Oscars for films like this...
