Our perenially incompetent student union.
I was particularly taken with "With deadlines and exams, it can so easy to rush your work, and run the risk of plagiarism ."
Clearly, it can so easy to rush your web authoring too.
Also, what the hell are they going on about? Plagiarism is not easy. Plagiarism is deliberate and dishonest. It's not like people accidentally copy their friends' work and hand it in with their name on it...

"Prime numbers have useful properties, which make them interesting things to study in mathematics. [...] A few of these proofs are presented here in the hope that it may inspire an enthusiasm for mathematics."
If you've been through A-level equivalent maths in the UK you've probably seen most of the proofs here, but it's still an interesting presentation of them.

"After years of very hard living, Shane MacGowan of the Pogues should really be dead. But he and the band are back, breathing life into their careers with a long-awaited us tour."

And yes, Shane MacGowan is still alive, apparently.
