This is a question Sporting Woe

In which we ask a bunch of pasty-faced shut-ins about their exploits on the sports field. How bad was it for you?

Thanks to scarpe for the suggestion.

A tale of our schools brilliant timetabling...
As with all academies, our school had the day split up into multiple periods, our classes consisting of either single or double period lessons. The powers at be (in a surprising burst of logic) deemed that PE was to be a double period lesson, actually giving enough time to get changed both into and out of PE kit and actually have a lesson in the middle.

Except when they put the double lesson over break time... With most classes normal enough - you drop pens, go eat crisps and fight for a while, then come back and pick up where you left off. With most PE lessons it was also fine - stop playing games, escape to the canteen still in PE kit, pick up where you left off after.

On the other hand, did nobody think that having a double period of swimming over a break was a bit of a stupid idea? It was normally bad enough for body conscious teenagers to be stripping down to swimming shorts on front of each other, an interesting experiment with the normal teenage thought process when then confronted with all the girls in swimming costumes, but to chuck everyone out for fifteen minutes in the middle of the class to the freezing changing rooms while the teacher went for the break? Getting changed was pointless as by the time you were dried off you would have to get changed again, so it inevitably was spent shivering and trying to avoid getting bare skin slapped by any of the less friendly and more bullying minded members of class.

Did nobody consider the thought that for a class with PE over a break, to just skip on doing swimming lessons for that six week block of the year and leave us doing normal games?

It's almost as if PE teachers were not recruited from the intellectual cream.

Hmmm, what we need are statistics
