Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I don not have an exciting live, I objecy most strongly to that unreasoned assumption of yours Stilly. I would have been posting endless doggeral to MOAB then, were it not for the fact I was stuck working 50 miles away.

50 miles of pointless traffic lights, and endless roadworks, with no workers, but 2/3rds of the road shut anyway. 50 miles of very full coach rides. 50 miles with the absurd marking guidlines that some supposedly clever people came up with.......

Oh yes, you know those statistics you see every now and again proclaiming that your countries teenagers are the 17th stupidest in the world this year? The tests for that are what I'm marking at the moment. Many of the kids as thick as two short planks, but the people who wrote the tests make them look like geniuses.

We have been told to read winter and summer, hot and cold and yes and no interchangably, to mark correct answers wrong as it wasn't the correct answer they were looking for, and mark utter gibberish corrct.

There are lies, damn lies, and now I'm involved in making the statistics. May moab have mercy on my soul.....
