My dreaded monday night course, the one that runs from 6pm till 9pm every week in the aptly named Crawley, plumbed new depths last night when I had to listen to one of my staggeringly stupid class-mates musing about how unfair it is that airlines can't stop all Muslim men from becoming pilots. This in a class about safeguarding equal opportunities and diversity. Can only feel sorry for the guy's prospective students. Still, I suppose there's a good chance he'll fail the course.

On a more pleasant note, we went for a walk in Ashdown Forest on Sunday - the place which inspired A.A. Milne when writing the Winnie-the-Pooh stories. It was lovely. And there's a picture of the pooh-sticks bridge at Bobby's blog.

It seems that morons are everywhere. I hope that he does fail the class and he'll walk around for weeks thinking about "How the fuck did that happen?".
Loved the picture over on Bobby's blog.
