Gooseberry bushes, storks and all, I hope.

Gooseberry bushes? Not that I remember. The stork was spoken of fondly though.

Am I to take it from the phrasing of tetsabb's hope that there are people going round proposing a theory of reproduction that doesn't involve storks? Does such a theory even exist? Has the world gone utterly mad?

I think that's what he meant, but don't let that corrupt your (I'm assuming) young mind.

The stork DOES bring babies. That's what I was taught. I had to do a biology test about the anatomy of a stork and why it is best suited for baby-carrying.
On an interesting note, the stork is also the symbol of Alsace, which I was visiting last week. Anyone got any ideas why?

Why the stork is the symbol of Alsace, or why you were visiting it?
Maybe you were on a holiday.

The stork is the symbol of Alsace (and, so Wikipedia leads me to believe, the Hague and Denmark as well) because, I think, they have a fair few of them there. Or did until the 70s, anyway. They come to Europe from January until August, I'm told, although they've tended not to come so far west in recent decades.

On the other question, since "holiday" has already been taken, I'm going to guess that dotcom was taken there by a band of ruthless kidnappers. Possibly disguised as storks.

When I was in high school in the US, we watched a video in what they called Health class (It was sex ed). The video was about the dangers of mixing alcohol and sex, and featured the classic line "Liquor gets your jimmy thicker quicker". I remember nothing from the rest of the film, but that line has stuck with me for 7 years.

What sex ed video were you watching? All we got was one on STDs. That, and a talk about how we should respect our bodies. It was a rather conservative school.

They were obsessed with STIs at my school. It was like, 'yeah, if you must have sex, go ahead, but you'll DIE!' Then, because it was a Christian school, there was the merest suggestion that sex outside of marriage might upset the Lord.

Going back to teachers for one more moment.
My favourite convinced us that the 3 jars on the desk were full with dodgy urine from a diabetic, a pregnant woman and some unfortunate soul with renal failure. He then proceeded to taste test each beaker. Wonderfully visual technique, stuck with me for many years. As an A level student I assisted him with repeating this demo to 1st years.

He also in trusted the same 1st years into my care while he attended to head of year business, until the head teacher brought in a new student and asked me to introduce him to the class, I couldn’t as the poor boy was john Thomas, and I was too busy crying under the desk.

While I'm not entirely sure I want to know, what was actually in the vessels which allegedly contained urine?

I would suggest in this case that Goergina contact the reliable Urban Myth websites, they have had that story down as an Urban Legend for some time

If he's tasting them. . . apple juice? In Bio Lab, we got fake urine (combinations of chemicals and things) to test for disease.
