11/15

i got these wrong:
-Almost 60m people live in the UK. By what factor do the native-born English outnumber their Scots or Welsh neighbours?
-According to Life in the UK, where does Father Christmas come from
-According to the book, where does the myth of Father Christmas come from?
-And finally, what does Life in the UK tell you it is "very important" to do when engaging a solicitor?

Back to that pub. The police turn up with the ambulance and an officer asks you to attend an interview at the station. What are your rights?
What's the minimum time you must have been married before you can divorce?
And finally, what does Life in the UK tell you it is "very important" to do when engaging a solicitor?

I got those right, Sarah... which - I believe - proves you're the British and I'm just a foreigner

10 of 15.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

8/ 15

I passed

"Ik weet dat wij ons erdoor slaan, dat we zij aan zij blijven staan
Tot alle stormen zijn verstomd en er een nieuwe lente komt
En alles weer begint van voor af aan..."

I didn't look to see what I got right and wrong. I guessed Victorians, but I don't know if that's right.
