    Was it Gough's eyebrows that got your "dander" up?

    If so, why not Menzies or Hawkey?

    I wonder, did I outlast Larry with my dedication to posting at this esteemed forum? (Seems that his most recent post was months ago.) And how did he know about the future and Trump?

    Capa Fan: This is a terrible precedent. What if he was using the toilet for the purpose for which it was intended? How can photographing someone in the loo even be legal? If it were a minor, then this would be child pornography, and the photographer should be locked up.


    AC: It could be said that the good Lord is performing such every day and all in innocence. At least chess authorities are approved so is a "democratic" process.

    This couple lost their cat when being transported by plane in Australia. My friends lost their cat when moving house here and they found it cooked under the bonnet of their car. My neighbour's disappeared when they moved to Gold Coast never to be sighted again.

    AC:
    When I dabbled in philosophy, debates would go into related areas and NEVER were they censored or stopped due to off topic or thread drift.


    KB: Philosophy was one of my undergrad majors. It is pretty much like any other university subject. Generally when someone started going way off topic in tutorials, the tutor would drag the discussion quickly back to something relevant while the rest of the class rolled their eyes at the (typically) mature-age student responsible for the off-topic digression. And anyone who responded to a philosophy exam question or assignment by addressing a side-topic and really not answering a clearly expressed question would generally not get a good mark at all.

    AC: Well this mature age student was told by the lecturer that he preferred mature age students due to them being there out of interest and love of philosophy and not just for credit points. Also a few of them gave free public talks that I organised and one packed the house out. Then I took up public speaking at the Sydney Domain I was only supposed to talk for 15 mins but it went about 2 hours and most surprising was that I had the biggest crowd.

    As well Paul Keating was a mature age student and got a lot further than yourself with all your fancy letters after your name (that I am envious of).

    When Dr Peter Slezak gave a lecture with 77 students and posed a mathematical logic problem that stunned the class a bit, well this mature age student gave him the correct answer though I had not never studied mathematical logic. And my mature age mate next to me said "I bet you have a big head now Hanna".


    And being off topic was not the reason I only got a "C" grade pass. I was offered a re-mark or mark up due to being interrogated by the detectives that morning at 6am of the exam due to a building burning down and they possessed many warning letters that I was going to flame the place to cash in on the fire insurance. But I declined the lecturer's kind offer as I was only a mature age student having fun and wanting to become more intellectual. I am lucky that you weren't one of the Ds.

    What is your evidence of this? As far as I am aware Keating never enrolled at any university whatsoever and didn't even finish high school. He received honorary doctorates, but by their nature those don't require any study.

    Like most of your endless supply of tall stories this one doesn't make sense and sounds implausible. A student whose exam is disrupted by external circumstances might be offered an opportunity to re-sit the exam but it is hardly a special reason to grant them remarking rights beyond any they already have, and upmarking a student because of external circumstances would be academic malpractice.

    I think it was something like she would base my marks on my assignments only and not the exam. You probably think the fire insurance story was only a lot of hot air.

    Saw this article today...well - there will probably be even more such claims coming up against universities in future. Why pass the subjects if you can claim discrimination instead .

    This is amazing, the graph shows which countries earns the lowest trust in govt as viewed by the UK. Surprisingly Italy has greater trust than OZ - they change governments in Italy more often than I change my underwear???

    Reminds me of one the supposed reasons why Trump wasn't publicly interviewed by Mueller's team: they did not want to expose to the world how incompetent and a liar that the POTUS was
