When I was a student, someone fell off a lorry and it ran him over. He did survive (just).

Still got them round my way. Maybe we aren't very progressive here!

Women used to parade during rag week, that's nasty! Better if they just stay indoors and eat chocolate.

When I was at uni in the 90s, there was an annual sponsored "naked run" from Harrods back to the student union building by the Royal Albert Hall. There was a prize for last place!

I was in the TV club and we used to film the event and flog the video to the tabloids for RAG donations. Most amusing for the tourists, but I doubt the people at Harrods & Kensington thought so! Not sure if it's still going - it probably never officially happened.
