The last guy in the marathon jogging down the Mall with the spectators giving him an awesome welcome home. It's making me cry to be honest but it's fab!

He did, but in a freshwater lake. Lake water can be a bit funky when it matures.

I hate those kind of teachers who demand absolute authority over what they are saying. ( I was always arguementive at school, if I thought something wasn't right, I usually said so. Loudly)

I argued with an examiner during an oral exam for a job qualification, and said that the question wasn't covered in any of the recommended text books, but was a very specialised subject not usually taught, he had a go at me until one of the other examiners said 'He's right, you'll have to remove that question from your list, it's far too specialised for this level'. I passed..
