    I made sure I used some antibacterial hand gel to help stop the spread of infection

    Surely this thread should be in the security forum for safety's sake?!

    At my old school the NM presented a cat 5 cable in a sealed bag to the staff saying it was being sent off for DNA testing.

    The reason why, oh someone had looped the network, in the staff room.

    classic

    You should have probably held it up at arms length in front of whoever gave it to you, tutted, sucked air in through your teeth and exclaimed "Sheesh - I'm afraid we're going to have to kill it. Kill it with fire."

    Just imagining the scene at the end of Shaun of the Dead now
