I decided to put up Amazon's ad banner at the top of my site after being assured that the content it would advertise would be directly relevant to the people viewing my Blog.
I therefore expected ads for Mensa applications, books about Astrophysics, Philosophy, Politics and Fine Arts. Instead all I've got is stuff with the word 'Chalk' in it.
So much for hi-tech. I'll give it another day or so then bin it if it doesn't improve.
'A' Level results out in a couple of days- I am willing to take bets against the following:
1) Every broadsheet newspaper will have a picture of half a dozen pretty girls from a very nice school, waving their 'A' Level results along with a good looking young Headmistress congratulating them for getting about 12 grade 'A' s each.
2) The results will be the best ever. A ridiculous number of kids will get A-C grades.
3) Somebody important will try to claim that 'A' levels are not getting easier.
4) Lots more students will go on to University to study Psychology, Media Studies and Sociology. Lots fewer will go on to study anything serious.
Any other bets considered.
Oh, why not enter your guess for the sweepstake on the largest number of Grade 'A's achieved by an individual this year. I'm going for 8.
ps. Many thanks to whoever ordered a DVD Box set of "The Goodies" sending the kitty up to £9
