There was a PE teacher who liked to Trump the changing room showers "to make sure we had showered" which was... Interesting. But that's the worst it ever got there.

But yeah, it's like I always see three meanings to every sentence - the most literal one, the one that is what the other party actually meant, and often the peculiarly linked one which. Sometimes I reply to or use the literal one knowing full well that it won't be taken that way. And sometimes I use the third only be met by confused looks and no small amount of embarrassment and wanting to crawl into a small hole and die. Fun.

Yep. Get the Chunky comic reader app and it'll guide you through how to transfer them from your PC. Free or £3.99 for the Pro version.

I was surprised to learn from some younger colleagues that they no longer shower after PE, even if they're covered in mud.

Check the format of them - a common way of handling early comics was the use of CBR or CBZ files

CBR are container files full of images that have been RAR compressed and renamed
CBZ are container files full of images that have been ZIP compressed and renamed

So if they are images you can just rename your .RAR file to CBR and open them in about any comic reader

Chunky will sort this all out for you. No need to make it complicated for tech-challenged Ian.

T's true. He's about as technically competent as my grandmother.

There was an article on the Beeb website about this about a year ago......oh, it was 2015.

I’m a bit worried that I remember this.

I'd prefer a restaurant or pub doing a Lenten theme rather than the ghastly hearts and cherubs and lovey-dovey stuff.

Back when I was a student, one Halloween the college bar offered a free drink to anyone who was in costume. Turned out 'the devil in disguise' did not count.
