Wahey!

Ah Martin, such a source of reliable, wholesome entertainment!
Yep, I even tried staring at the wrong image for 10 seconds. It is smarter than me. Then again...

Not uncanny, just maths.

Not uncanny, just maths.

Spot on Mr. Davies but with the addition of a bit of physiological psychology.
Mathematically the operation will always produce a multiple of 9.
We are then so intent on finding the mathematical result in the table we ignore that fact and also fail to notice that the symbols in the table are randomly shuffled on each attempt.
Et voila!

I'm still trying to fathom out Mike C's 'non specific English class' in the other thread.

However I seem to recall you could get rid of it with the apporopriate lotion and a wire brush  ::)

In that case, how come ironing four shirts is four times worse than ironing one shirt? Hmmmm?

Still think I'm stupid? Ha!

Cough.

Ah, comprehension has been made rather less likely by me not noticing that I'd actually used the wrong word!  :-[

What I meant to say was 'non-specialist English', a single period per week for people in the Sixth Form who weren't doing English as an A-level subject, which covered whatever the teacher wanted. We were occasionally allowed to bring along records to play to the class, providing that there was some kind of social comment or relevance in the song being played. King Crimson's 'Schizoid Man', and 'Epitaph' were thus OK to play.

Ah yes, the bane of the science A levellers. My school called it General Studies.

It is a bit: in my house/marriage, I do little or no amounts of either.
