Excellent Brit blogger Natalie Solent confesses her shameful academic dishonesty:

My main motive for cheating was lunch.

The London Sun will soon learn of this, causing Solent to be known UK-wide as the ‘Eater Cheater’. Subsequently we’ll see headlines like NOSHING NAT’S BUNNY BRUTALITY!

Dog-ownership reveals more joys each day. Our teeny dog Laptop is best pals with an enormous, friendly, enormous, bouncy, adorable, seriously enormous Retriever puppymonster who, in line with this blog's strict policy of total anonymity for companion animals, we shall call Dog X (not his real name). Dog X is the very soul of benevolence and charitable endeavour: he knows you want dead rabbits and he does his best to bring you them.

For lunch!

Lunch?! Did someone say "lunch"? With a light, sweet dessert wine, perhaps?

When I was in college, the chemistry department wrote up new lab experiments each year. I don't know if they were trying to avoid the type of cheating mentioned in the link, or were simply tailoring the experiments to the available stocks of supplies.

In any event, I was in the first lab session working on a particular experiment when we discovered that the instructor had forgotten to mention the correct way to mix water and highly concentrated acid. After our workstation literally exploded in our faces, the lab instructions were hastily rewritten for later sessions... ;)

Ah, but can Dog X deal with the viscious Jackalope?
