    The fact that Trevor Nunn and Adam Long only got grade B in the A level Shakespeare they sat recently - shows how weird the education system is.

    ( FYI - you can't find better authorities on Shakespeare than those two - they sat the paper a couple of years back just to see what they would get. Clearly there is something wrong with the system)

    Maybe not really a fair reflection. If I was asked to pass my driving test again then I'd probably fail. Most of it is theory today rather than practical. When I first passed my driving test my instructor took me straight onto a skid pan - real world experience.

    Back on topic - Win8 only solves problems on a personal level. As my Win7 64bit system is running fine and I have no interest in downloading apps atm on my desktop or laptop and certainly have no interest in the cloud until it is proven to be 100% reliable (99% is simply not good enough) then it will not solve any problems for me.

    The lunatics are running the asylum.

    Too many people in positions of influence today are hopelessly divorced from reality. Operating on a corrosive mix of propaganda, emotion and mental instability, they are dangerously passionate about things of which they know nothing.

    I've read the same thing, and I know plenty of my contemporaries haven't found jobs as lawyers, but speaking from experience there is LOTS of legal work for them as want to take it. The beauty of it is that the excess of trained attorneys has to reduce the overinflated price of legal services, and this is coming from me. There are plenty of other legal education rants I could treat you to, but a lack of available work isn't one of them. (In case it isn't already clear, I'm a recently graduated attorney).
