Screw that. In case of a fire I am going into full blown panic mode! When the firefighters show up I want them to find me shirtless, hanging upside down from the light fixtures, with war paint drawn in sharpie on my face, and me singing 70s pop songs off key and loudly. When they ask me what is going on I will shrug and say, "I guess I panicked."

They're to wait for the man with the cart.

"When the alarm sounds; stay in your room for one minute..."

A full minute?  In what is potentially a fire?  Good luck with that.

Remember the nightclub fire years ago, where the band set off shiatty pyrotechnics and lit the building on fire?  And people waited for a minute or two because they thought it was part of the act?  And then they all realized 'oh shiat, we're about to roast' and then clogged the exits in panic and most of them died?

That's what's going to happen.

Only if you can get Great White to play in your dorm room.

Sorry folks, I apologise. The powers that be in my homeland are completely incompetent.

I do not know the lyrics to that song, but what about Rhinestone Cowboy or Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong?

Friend of mine graduated from York, and I somewhat gleefully sent it her way because usually she delights in highlighting American stupidity for me. And there's usually plenty to go around.

I'm sure we'll get back to status quo soon, but meantime I learned a new insult. "Farking muppets" is delightful.

There are currently two of that band - one with Jack Russell (the singer, and the part of the band that burned down The Station) and one without. Neither one is doing much anymore as the county fair circuit has dried up.

They're burning Boris Johnson at the stake?

NIce idea, but not effective prevention, I imagine. That horse has bolted, as they say in the UK.
