Hi it's come round to that time of year when annoying university students ask stupid questions on specialist forums to get nagging tutors off their backs by being able to supply "reasonable evidence".
If you hadn't already guessed I am of course one of these university students and so have several questions.
Please be aware that the questions below may have absolutely no academic rigor and may show a slight hint of bias.
How often do you climb outdoors?
How often do you climb indoors?
How often do you go out walking in non-built up environments?
What climbing gear companies do you trust the most?
What general outdoor clothing do you trust the most?
What do you think of the state of British gear companies?
What do you think about the fact over 90% of people in the UK now lives in cities and urban locations as apposed to the countryside?
Do you think people have lost touch with the natural environment?
Do you think young people spend too much time indoors?
Do you think the youth of today are lazy layabouts who wouldn't know nature if they were hit round the head with it?
Are kids mollycoddled far too much?
Are you bored of these questions and long for the hills?
Did you in fact expect the Spanish inquisition?
Thanks

Hmm. Surely nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.

I'd get out walking in non-built up environments a lot more if I didn't have annoying university students coming to my office asking me stupid questions!

My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart's in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer;
Chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe,
My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.

Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North,
The birth-place of Valour, the country of Worth ;
Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,
The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.

Farewell to the mountains, high-cover'd with snow,
Farewell to the straths and green vallies below;
Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods,
Farewell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods.

My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart's in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer;
Chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe,
My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.


Does that answer your questions?

Doesn't surprise me.

> Do you think people have lost touch with the natural environment?

Yes. And ditto.

> Do you think young people spend too much time indoors?

No.

> Do you think the youth of today are lazy layabouts who wouldn't know nature if they were hit round the head with it?

No. And people have been saying this for about 1000 years.

> Are kids mollycoddled far too much?

No.

Your epic list of questions would work much better as a survey monkey or a Google form.

They'll even compile most of the data for you!

Would the cities still be the cities if 90% of people didn't live in them?

I'm oretty sure the countryside wouldn't still be the countryside if it was the other way round...
