I'd like to thank everyone for their wonderful and colourful answers. It's been really interesting to see what stories have been told, I loved the one about meeting a future wife, that really made me go awwww!
My main research paper is on a completely different aspect of online education, but I thought it would be interesting to see what people wrote. I now realise that it was totally above my station to ask such a thing of you. I apologize most whole heartedly and am ashamed for being such a bad citizen!
Cheers guys, you're ace!
