This week in the lounge Dave begs for participation from the Loungers out in Loungeland, but does he deserve it. Plus, women are from Venus, men are from Mars (which is strange, because I would have thought that nothing could survive the harsh Venusuian atmosphere).

This week in the lounge we have two very special "mini guests" for our very extra special mini-sode. Our young education experts share their opinions on school uniforms, homework and evaluation methods. If we really want to improve education we need to listen to the children! Not to be missed.

1. A great site for kids who are interested in science and technology
