did anyone else do this at school?
i think i got to level 12? but i dont know.
and i used to just stop on purpose in protest at it. it was so irritating.
to about 13, then had a technicolour yawn and didn't move for a long time.
I don't remember that. Was it to see how many swear words you could gratutiously enter into a conversation? Us inner-city kids must rule at that.
so by bleep test you mean physical torture?
I've never ever taken part in such a test, it sounds like bollocks
is that where you put corks in a basket when you hear a sound?
that I remember. Though that was because I used to only have like 40% hearing, or something. I had to have a grommet (sp?) in my ear and everything
fell out in bed. I woke up and found it, but then I lost it again. I too was sad, I wanted to keep it. Maybe I could have given it to you for your grommet necklace
always waited for the fatties to drop out, then respectfully retired before it got too hard
level 8/9 I think?
the thing that police get made to do to see if they can join
once deleted all the songs off my MP3 player and replaced them with the bleep test.
doing stuff like this.
IS THE BLEEP TEST?
trying to get to the end before something bleeps. if you don't make it in time, you're out. at each 'level', the bleeps get faster.
i did it a few times at school, no idea how well i did though. at a guess, i'd say level 9843578.
something that bleeps.
I never used to do P.E.
I was that girl who always "forgot her kit" or had "medical problems".
Exercising in front of others always frightened me.
Exercise in general does, actually. Hahah. But I'm about to join a gym. How silly.
I was quite "chubby".
Then i got REALLY thin.
Then i was in a wheelchair over the summer and I'm unslim again.
It's a great circle.
a bit of a self-destructive cycle?
You can be fat and not exercise.
Or fat and have the piss taken out of you when you TRY to exercise.
Schools are harsh.
To a public school in Islington.
I was, hilariously (to them, anyway), put in a PE class with a bunch of models. As in, actual teen-models. Who thought it was hilarious that I was *GASP* a size 12.
only roger balck go to that level on record breakers
my friend once had a whole conversation with m trying to get me to rememeber the runner NIGEL black. it took me ages to work out who he was on about
pm me with any queires
is that it?
I did it too, Paul Scholes can (could) get to level 15
Not sure what level I got to, but I was always in the last five or six left standing. I also used to be the second or third fastest runner in the school, and generally quite athletic.
Then I gave it all up for a life of rock'n'roll. Oh well.
I don't remember ever doing such a thing at school.
HOW DO LIKE THAT!
with Theo on this, you all went to some crazy bastard schools.
We did do cross country though, and I managed to finish 13th, 5 years in a row. Now THAT is a very average level of consistancy, thank you very much
= half an hour strolling round the playing fields talking about the weekends Match of the Day so that you didn't get muddy/sweaty enough to have to go in the freezing cold communal shower with the other boys, under the watchful eye of a PE teacher who your suspicions about were later confirmed as he was investigated for "incidents" involving minors.
In my case.
part in the County cross-country trials in some godforsaken place in North Derbyshire somewhere. Despite the fact I'd never done it before. I'm still unsure as to how this happened. I finished mid-table, but my abiding memory is me and the other two guys from my school standing behind some sort of hut taking my inhaler like it was some sort of performance-boosting drug. It kept me alive, but I don't really know what effect it had on them.
what were they called? better than steroids
had much the same experience taking part in the 110m hurdles for the county, how I got there I'll never know.
Well, the same experience minus the inhaler. Or the friends
healthier. thats why
everyone ran 8 miles to school every day, so PE wasn't required
so they had more time for scribbling algebra on slates and learning latin and how Britain was the best nation in the world and the King would soon command the whole thing
you were any nearer to me, I'd hit you with my abacus
because we always did it in the small gym, so there was less of a run to do. The big gym would have killed me. Much like cross country did as my school had the county cross country course or something. It was a nightmare.
standing around for ten minutes in a queue before being expected to run up and vault over a pommel horse in front of 40 of your peers.
and climbing ropes.
a very fit child were you?
