Some lovely tales on there.

"I started up the Stirling University Procrastination Society in 1980. It was a resounding success. Not one person bothered to return their registration form on time and we never got round to holding any meetings. Well done us. Yay!"

Well there is the future capital of the UAE on the borders of Dubai and Abu Dhabi: Al Karama (no, not that one). That's where the 01 phone code was reserved for. They never seem to have got around to that, do they?
