Re: Brain boxes or what ???

Is there a special section for having underachieved magnificently in spite of the millions spent on your education.

I once had the stupidity to think I was clever, but it all comes tumbling down when you meet people who really are clever.

We had a lad at school who was 1) an entrance scholar 2) a music scholar 3) played for the 1st XV 4) Brilliant at Latin and Greek...and the sciences 5) Won a scholarship to Cambridge 6) Eventually became a Doctor i think (me and my mates reckon he is probably the Queen's gynaecologist these days )

Whats worse is that Andy was a really nice bloke...AND WE ALL HATED HIM FOR IT....

The words "aye, right" spring to mind.

I'm a bit academic (geology degree) with an artistic bent (ooh, er, missus). Absolutely hopeless practically though - couldn't spanner my way out a wet paper bag.

Re: Brain boxes or what ???

yeah, but the good thing about being thick in my considerable experience, is that you're permanently pleasantry surprised by everything. Find a balloon, all your Christmases have come at once.

Re: Brain boxes or what ???

Academically average - did get a 'B' in English Lit

Mechanically sound - fixed more than I fuc broke

Always been a tinkerer - all my toy's got taken apart to see how they worked - still do it now with the loon's toys...

Some of them even went back together

A firm once gave me an Isometric test... It said I was a psycopath.

I thought Isometric meant 'the same on both sides' This means both of your personalities are psycopaths
