Y'know, football violence is almost an urban myth.  I think it's over a year 
since I heard of an incident.  Amongst the spectators, that is.

We had a nice one today.  One of the Scottish universities has completed a 
study of road accidents.  If a pedestrian is killed by a car in Scotland, the 
pedestrian is likely to have a higher alcohol level than the car's driver.  One 
in three Scottish pedestrians killed on the roads is over the drunk driving 

And it's a long time since we had bear baiting - most of the good subjects have 
gone.  Windows has definitely trounced OS/2, and Audis are obviously far 
superior vehicles to ovloVs and WMBs ...
