This is like only connect, but actually really difficult and I'm not Victoria Coren, unfortunately.

...something more about Rudi Voller and curly hair
It's been half an hour so, even if there's a small AJP/IJP issue, in the absence if anything better, I'm having this.
and the people in the problem had these names.
Someone in my seminar also was intrigued and googled all the names together and got THIS THREAD and said in the seminar today, when I asked the leader about it, "they're all knights" and the seminar leader who wrote the question was like "eh???"
Apparently he just chose the names "at random" and AJP obvz is Taylor.
Who is killing all the gays?
kills 2 people for being called a fag or something = LOSS OF CONTROL. See also, a case a few years ago where someone beat someone to death for calling him a wanker. Jury accepted his plea of 'provocation' (when that still existed before the Coroners Act this year), so it wasn't murder. Ian Juror and his Blockhead fellow jurors more like!!!
I was just about to point out the 'homo' in your 'cide' until Stealthy said it, is all.
I mean, the lecturer didn't say they did? What was the problem? What do you study that you get problems about homicide?
like they're all members of a Take That or poets or something. Ther was a good one in the exam about William and Harry raping eachothers girlfriends and giving them HIV and stuff,
These names seemed too specifica;ly obscure not to have some link.
And it's a (criminal) law module.
I'm still having this one in the absence if anything better.
