Just because I'm a lazy man and hate searching for things on the site, I decided to compile all of John's "Ultimate Collections" into a cohesive thread so that those of you who are like me need not search the site up and down for these wonderful posts.

Also, if you were planning on doing this anyway, John, I'll delete the body of the text and post a link of a picture of iGSM in cowboy boots.

If I missed any, let me know - as far as I know, there wasn't a 1976 Best Of The Rest thread.

Perhaps it would be a good idea if this thread were stickied? Just a thought.

Why do you seek my approval? lol Actually, I did praise your recent efforts in a recent thread. Guess you haven't seen it.

Peace,

I just thought that I would bump this to give some of the newer fans some kind of idea on what kind of a discussion board this section can be.

I urge everyone to read all the threads contained within, as they are a wealth of information for any Queen fan.

Bumping, because the 1990s and 2000s have now been collected. Once the 1980s are finished, this will seriously be the Ultimate Collection!

Many, many thanks, John!

The links are there for information. You know, knowledge... Wait, probably you don't know. That's why you should read. Everything.

Most things listed there are available. You just have to buy them.
Some of them are not. Unless you take the time end the effortd needed to get them.

The clue is in the title. It is a discography.
You read it - you will find out what Queen material is 'available'.

You don't read it and you will never know.


Talk about being spoon-fed!

School leavers lack basic skills, say universities

Universities are dismayed by the poor levels of literacy and numeracy among school leavers who arrive in higher education expecting to be "spoon-fed", according to a new study.
Tutors at 16 universities - including Oxford and Cambridge - complained that many school leavers lacked a good grip of grammar and had a "fear of numbers".

...Focus groups of 250 lecturers and admissions tutors found that increasing amounts of time were being lost at the beginning of degree courses in remedial work, ranging from maths to essay writing.

"Remedial maths courses are on offer and the department has employed a learning officer to help with 'how to learn'," one tutor told the Nuffield study.

Another said: "No actual civil engineering is done in the first semester, and the second year material has now moved to the third year."

Comments on written work included: "They cut and paste essays from the web. Reading books is a skill which has been lost."

An admissions tutor at a "selecting" university said: "I was able to skim the cream of candidates, but even they do not necessarily know how to use an apostrophe."

Physics admissions tutors complained: "They can't even write in sentences. Their spelling is appalling. They can't be understood ... they graduate with a 2:1 but they still can't spell or write English."

And from biology admissions tutors: "Elementary maths is missing. They can't put decent sentences together" and "Students hate numbers, they're scared stiff of numbers."

John should record the Ultimate Collection CD and put it on Rapidshare for those who don`t want to read!
He should read it like in poetry!!


Take care
