I was surprised that they included Dido's Lament in the music round featuring arias composed for castrati, given that it was actually composed for a girls' school. Oops. It's a pity that Alex Guttenplan didn't point out the mistake to Jeremy Paxman.

Perhaps it was a girls' school that placed unusual constraints on its male teachers. :twisted:

Is it me or do all the contestants on University Challenge look really weird? In the last series there was one that looked like Mr Bean, one skinny one that looked ever so smug when getting an answer right and loads more! :? :o :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
One Direction are my life. <3

There's an inverse correlation between intelligence and social normality.

Most of them do, I quite like it. They have a stage to perform on and show everyone how goddamn clever they are when previously in school/college and whatnot they probably didn't have this. They should be allowed the occasional smug smile although it is annoying when they are just a smug bastard all the time. Well, maybe not annoying, I just get jealous.

I shall pass on this observation when I next see Kyle. I'm sure he'll be delighted.
