As thousands of students arrive at university for the first time, here is BounceSIN's cynics' A-Z of university life..
This week, Channel 4 genuinely upset me. Now Channel 4, can be upsetting for many reasons. From it’s news with the rather dashing John Snow, to it’s rather gripping documentary’s that normally involve somebody who was born half horse, half orangutan. It’s normally seen as the edgy channel compared to ITV and the BBC. Recently, however, Channel 4 aired a program called ‘How Not To Look Old’ - which, in my mind, was so offensive it may of well as been a man sitting there shouting profanities at me for an hour.
It is known as the worst attack ever to occur on U.S. soil. Its image is gruesomely iconic. It has started wars and conflicts that have raged within the Middle East for the past twelve years, that shows no signs of ceasing.

Overall, it appears twerking is the overall winner, in the confines of Twitter anyway. Well, at least we've got our priorities in order.

In the history of Britain, the welfare state is a relatively new concept. Introduced after WWII, it was to ensure that no family went hungry or without a doctor ever again: a supposed thank-you if you will to all those men and women who helped defeat ze Germans. The welfare state encompasses everything from the NHS, to free education. However there is one pocket of the aforementioned that always seems to cause a bit of a stir: Benefits, those who are deserving and those who are not.
If you are of the Indie wanker persuasion, like me, then feast your eyes (and ears) on these bad boys. All of those listed below have been around for quite some time.
