Misc., etc...

Two strange school-related stories from the Daily Telegraph - in the first we learn of a Japanese student who was required to write an essay in his own blood:
The 17-year-old was given a boxcutter and a piece of paper and told by the teacher to write "not in pencil, but in blood" because he was not sufficiently repentant.
Meanwhile, in England, it seems that a primary school teacher commissioned an army of nine-year-old girls to administer corporal punishment.
Arbitrarily, here's a page on how to make a Bishop's Mitre. Unfortunatly, it's a napkin-folding website, rather than a page about vestment manufacture, but interesting nonetheless.
Finally, a picture of my favourite girl, whom I hope to visit in Siena later this week. :)
