In a timely circumstance last week, I found myself sharing a cafeteria table with a bunch of students the same day UCC announced its "three strikes and you're out" policy toward bad behaviour on campus.

A mix of first and second years, the group seemed a perfect rendering of those college "glory years" - ie, when the library takes a distant third place to the pub and the club.

So nobody's going to take a blind bit of notice of these new rules, I ventured.
