The where are you going to Uni 2009 thread

Postby u38cg » Thu Aug 13, 2009 10:02 pm UTC

Let's get those tedious cliques organised even before we get there.

I shall be going to Heriot Watt (Edinburgh) to study Actuarial Science in September. Why? Mainly because I want to know when George Lucas will die.
