Fuck me rigid wi’ a rusty dildo!
Did anyone else try that Test the Nation IQ test the other night on The Beeb? It was loads harder than all the previous ones!

Why!, O why!, O why!, O why! [etc. ad infinitum] are Blogger -and by extension Google- so utterly determined to make it impossible for contributors to a multi-author blog to separate out their own posts?
As you all know –or at least that fraction of you all who are my second year students, I have been wrestling with the problem of how to extract our individual contributions from last year’s multi-author PDP, so that we can import them into Tumblr....
