I love the ant bomb line. I'm not even that old, but things were different even when I was in school in the 90s.

Sadly, that's absolutely true :(

Myself, I left school two years before the date in the title, you shouldda seen what it was like before then. We didn't just get caned, we dripped blood!

And of course it has turned me into a fine, sane, rational human being....

I think. Pass me my number six blade would you Chivemey, I feel the need to stroll the streets of Whitechapel tonight....

Seriously - what the hell has happened?
