Both my sons, 16 and 14 didn't know that David Blunkett was blind. The younger one thought he always had a guard dog with him. :shock:

Anyone seen the core? Its a pants film where people have to go down to the core of the earth :shock:
Well after about an hour after they designed this craft that can dig down and withstand the pressure etc. They launch it in to the sea and it starts to tunnel down .......... the missus goes 'I thought they were going into space' ..... what :?:

Upon driving to an airport and seeing the control tower, my mates better half wondered aloud why they'd have a lighthouse so far inland.

And my mother trying to explain digital tv to my g.mother "it comes in straight lines so it doesn't get tangled up." "Is that how cds work?" "I think so" "Why are they round, then and not square?"

oh sweet jesus it gets worse. the little lad who asked me why the hearts were not beating obviously spent the rest of the week processing my stunned response and today came out with the following :shock: :shock:
"yeah but i watched a telly programme where they took the heart out and it was still beating...."

"what programme was that???????"

"the simpsons" :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

(ps anyone who thinks teaching is easy should try to deal with a conversation like that when you're hungover as f**k the day after your christmas do without upsetting the little love...................)
