There are sensible young people

Contrary to what you hear about peer pressure in school, University is the opposite. You hear about people being called uncool if they choose not to smoke and decline to try a fag. Two nights ago at the collisseum Mark offered me his ciger (he only mokes cigars and only on special occasions) and I declined. Whereas in school I guess you would have been mocked and bullied for that, they said that I was sensible and Nat wished that she hadn't started in the first place.

It's not a great surprise, but just an interesting observation.

Newspapers and Modern Culture

I sometimes wonder what the world is coming to when I read the newspapers. All the wars and such like around the world but one thing that really caught my eye just now, as it was lying on the kitchen table, was an "article" in The Sun. On page 35 of Friday 6th's edition there is the following article:

Romp? We All Prefer A Hug

Sex poll shock

MOST Brits would rather have a happy relationship with average sex than red-hot passion without love, a survey shows
Nearly three-quarters of those quizzed – 71 per cent – said they would choose a cosy romance over a wild time in the sack.
Eighty per cent of women put relationships first in the poll – and 64 per cent of men.
Folk in Gouchestershire were the most committed to relationships, with 83 per cent there putting htem first. The Isle of Man was the most sexually demanding region, with 53 per cent settling for sizzling romps and an "OK" romance.

What is wrong with OK. Surely OK means all correct and all good. I know that The Sun isn't the best of newspapers for indicative stories and that the sort of people visiting are unlikely to be indicative of the overall population, but still. Please tell me that noone is shocked by the result that people want relationships more than sex. This shouldn't be a shock at all, surely that should be expected and if it was the other way around then that wouls be a shock.

I would be greatly interested to hear your thaughts on this topic.
