    How can you be "sick and tired of everything" if you're in Glasgow?

    The entire notion that classes on geometry can inflame teenage lust is preposterous

    "leaning over me he was trying to explain the laws of geometry
    and I couldn't help it I just had to kiss the teacher"

    The history books on the shelves are always repeating themselves? I think not

    Like a bang, a boom-a-boomerang
    Dum-be-dum-dum be-dum-be-dum-dum
    Oh bang, a boom-a-boomerang
    Love is a tune you hum-de-hum-hum

    true....

    The gods may throw a dice
    Their minds as cold as ice

    If we leave aside the infelicity of "minds as cold as ice" we are still left with "dice" plural using a singular article.

    That's because you have a bit of hate in your heart for yourself. :(

    In fairness, if one doesn't read them in the first place, then the likelihood of history repeating itself can be greatly increased

    Performed by whom?

    My Dad was asking me recently about a copy he swears he had in the early 80s by the Furies (and Davey Arthur), but I can't track it down. It is not on the album he thinks it was (when you were sweet 16).

    It's absolute gibberish - how they were ever as successful as they claimed to be is beyond me - I call "false fame"

    Ah, right. I thought you meant Fields of Athenry, the song.

    What about "the loser's standing small?" Inventive detournment of standing tall or evidence that you shouldn't write in your second language?

    "I believe in angels, something good in everything I see"

    Well, if you believe in Angels (and we'll just park that for now, but, really?) then you'll believe in the angel, Satan. Who is Evil.

    Also, what good can you see in unfitted bottom sheets? Hmm?

    "Just one look and I can hear a bell ring".

    That's either a misunderstanding of how vision works, or evidence of synesthesia.

    "No time to talk"? You're in a hurry to get to your next shag? Give over.

    Thin Lizzy's epic is one of my favourite "lyrics not to think too hard about":

    Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak
    Somewhere in this town

    Let me guess Phil, is it going to be at the library? The pet shop? The nail salon?
