Plutocracy, fuck yeah.
In France they tend to do that with business/management schools. Rich student pays an insane amount of money, goes in, learns nothing of importance, comes out and gets a grossly overpaid job.
Scientific education tends to be cheaper (but the jobs pay way less for some reason, while requiring, IMHO, far more skill and intellect).

ps: Also the management/business students are often complete dicks.

That's a good point... the UK would have tomatoes per square metre, but the US would have tomatoes per square foot... that's a significant advantage to the UK, almost a factor of 10!

Unless the UK starts having tomatoes per square km, and the US starts having tomatoes per square mile... that would swing the advantage back towards the US...

Use the sticky adhesive designed for that application. You can find it at any Home depot or Lowes. Not sure UK...Place tiles with spacers. mix grout with sealant and water. Grout with float. Sponge. Extremely easy project.


Don't replace drywall with green board or sheet rock. Waste of time and money.

Thanks, TC. Turns out my wall tiler was just on holiday, and not ignoring me! I know I'm capable of attaching tiles to walls in a pleasing manner: it was the cutting and shaping of the tiles (to fit around electricity sockets/deer-head trophies and the like) which would have been the tricksiest deal. I heard you need specialist equipment to cut and shape tiles, and my weapon of choice is a pair of Crayola®-branded scissors. And I just don't think they're powerful enough to cut through 6mm-thick ceramic tile.

I'm not sure what green board or sheet rock is. One side of the kitchen is actually plastered-over red-brick, which is probably diamond-studded, or laced with eternium. It took my electrician 8 hours to chisel away at it (to make space for electricity cables). They don't make 'em like that any more.
