Part of this was about Durham University being quite prestigious, after the Oxbridge Uni's (Oxford and Cambridge). I thought I ought to confirm this (yes, Durham and St. Andrews are apparently where folks go if they can't get into the southern universities, or that is their reputation). In doing so I stumbled into some weirdness:
Milking - apparently a speciality of our very own Newcastle University; other universities such in Nottingham have joined in.
Porting, brought to us by Durham University
And, just so folks will know that St. Andrews is even posher they made a video of their own but apparently it upset people so much that the young men had to apologize for pouring bottles of Moet Chandon champagne over their heads. So maybe they aren't just more posh they are more polite? That video has apparently been removed from YouTube (my, they take this very seriously!) but hopefully you can still see it embedded in this article from the Daily Mail.
Don't ask me what this all means. I think it is a ramification of social media and probably something to do with rampant hormones or just the high jinx of being young. What I missed, not going away to uni!
Oh wait, it has spread... Has this come your way?
But never mind them, what about the high jinx of being retired? That will have to be another post...
