Mum boasting?
« on: 31/08/2010 17:53:50 »
Hi all, for those who know Murray, he has just got his GCSE results. He got 5 A*s, 4 As, 1B and a C.
Of course Chemistry and Physics were both A*s.
As you can imagine, I'm telling everyone including the lady behind the counter at Greggs. Poor girl didn't know what a GCSE was.
Anyway, he is staying on at his current school as it has a 6th form. He will complete his maths A-level and do further maths and he will also take Chemistry, Physics and Computer Studies.

Just thought some more of the world needed to know.

Congrats!
I am hoping he will apply. My friend is a Chemistry lecturer at Oriel. I'm sure he will give advice on interview technique.
Murray starts the sixth form tomorrow and is currently shaving his mustache off as he is not allowed one at his school.

Murray looks like my baby again now his face hair has been removed. Murray is missing waxing the ends of his lip fluff. He was hoping for a handle bar affair. I'm sure he will grow one as soon as the A-levels are done.

He only wears odd socks because he says it is a waste of time matching them.

Try this (variation of a very old) one on him then.

"If you have 10 red socks and 10 blue socks in a drawer, without looking, how many do you have to take out to guarantee you have a unmatched pair?"

11 - or 2 if you are colourblind.

unmatched pair
  3 could be red, red, red  ie no unmatched pair.  so 3 to get a matched pair and 11 to get an odd pair - yet wearing odd is easier!

Actually, it's not 2 if you're colour/color blind. You'd take all 20 out and you still wouldn't find an unmatched pair.  [;D]
