I like this story, but only because I can imagine the kids as grandparents, saying “you think YOU have it tough? Why, if *I* wanted to get to school…”

From the department of awesome: Edwardian Drunks Rogue Gallery. The occupations are killing me. What is a “Japanner and Charwoman”? And how exactly does one get a job as a “Bedstead Polisher”?

A few weeks old at this point, but the original screenwriter on Battlefield Earth apologizes for the movie being such a stinker. “It wasn’t as I intended — promise.
