Why Noelia's Studies are Fun, reason 74.

Last British Studies lesson. The professor divided us into ten groups, each one was supposed to choose one famous British Person (Darek:'Can we choose Irish?' Prof:'Provided it's Northern Irish, yes'. Darek:'We're choosing William Wallace then' Me: WTF?).

Finally, this was the list: Elizabeth II, Lady Di, Margaret Thatcher, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, John Locke, Elton John, John Lennon, Ali G and Jack the Ripper.

Then we learned that all ten people are in a baloon. And the baloon is falling down and we need to get rid of the balast. So, we're throwing people out. *Shrug* We had to decide who is the most important and *has* to stay.

Arguments varied.
"Thatcher needs to go. She's the Iron Lady, she's too heavy."
"You can't throw out Ali G, that would be racism" "Yes, but then you can't throw Sir Elton, that would be discrimination of sexual minorities!"
"Let's throw out the Queen, God will Save her."
"Do swans fly? If so, we can throw out Shakespeare."

After one hour in the baloon we still had:
Elizabeth II
Margaret Thatcher
John Lennon
Elton John

Darek: "Look! It's perfect! Two women, two men and a gay person!"


Who stayed, then? Good ol' William Shakespeare.

The kicker? Our year is divided into two groups. The other group had those classes before us. We asked who stayed in their case.

Prince William.

Still, it was better than what we did on writing last week.

We played musical chairs.
