    After having watched BBC 'Breakfast' roll out yet another devastatingly self-evident news item, I took to pondering the creation of a faculty of learning for the subject.

    My question is, if you joined this university, what would be your department and specialist subject?

    Family Sudies: and my project would be "Do fat stupid rude parents tend to have fat stupid rude children?"

    I might have to PC the language up a bit...:rolleyes:

    Something like "Is there a causal link between BMI and social skills in parents and those of consequent generations?"

    oh and Lecturer in Generic UK Weather Forecasting: 'today will be slightly colder than average with cloud and the possibility of rain'

    Damn you're so right about the weather!:

    "Today brings a good chance of wind, rain, cloud and sunny spells with no rain and cloud or a mixture of the above. Temperatures may vary. Generally it will be colder up north although this is not always the case."
