The best stories will come from Chemistry lessons...
One day, we'd had the Bunsen burners out and, of course, stuff was getting set on fire. Spills, biros, paper towels, more paper towels, even more paper towels...

One of the lads had set a few too many off and was left with a wodge of burning paper. As the chemistry teacher was on his way over, he decided that the best place for this fireball was the drawer of the lab table and shoved it in.

Of course, this didn't stop the smoke or smell of burning, so the teacher went straight to the drawer and opened it. Which flared the burning paper right up. The lad in question described the teacher's expression as "like he had just seen fire for the first time."

Still, it caused enough of a distraction that no one noticed that our table had thrown about half a kilo of plasticine at the ceiling so hard it had stuck.

Sandbach Fair
It arrives every September and it's always crap.

Fixed shooting games, arcade machines released around the time of MC Hammer's debut album and the rides. The rides.

The Carribean Dancer was a favourite for most, but I'm not a fancy of being shaken up. Least of all if the machine has been knocked up in an hour or two.

One year the "spinning and lifting up thing" (I believe that was it's official name) wasn't earthed properly. Every so often a big blue bolt of electricity would arc from the arm into the spinning cab below and "get" the passengers.

We watched this for three full rides before going to the pub.

Who was it...
Who made the giant KitKat Chunky that was in the newsletter? That was brilliant.

If I ever take up exercise (and thus process all those calories) or feel like ending it all in a blaze of Nutella and wafer-fuelled glory, that would be the one for me.
