The Trick of Looking Years Younger at Uni


Saw this banner advert yesterday:


The trick is obviously to lie through your teeth and use a photo of yourself from 25 years ago (or more likely 40 in this case). Easy really - thousands of women up and down the country do it on a daily basis on web dating sites.

Plans to let universities dictate the content of A-level papers have been given a cautious welcome by teachers and the head of exam regulator Ofqual. In a letter to Ofqual, education secretary Glenys Stacey raised concerns current exams were failing to properly prepare students. Her letter started; "Deer Sur."

My HTC Android phone updated itself to Android 4.0 (Icecream Sandwich - what an utterly ridiculous name for a software update) over the weekend and now gives me the ability to unlock it by face recognition. I'm not sure whether I'm ageing faster than a banana in a fruit bowl, but the bloody thing never seems to recognise my face twice in a row.

    1. Steve: it would appear so. However, I never used the lock function before anyway.
