Shock horror! Not really. 

Two articles in today's Metro caught my eye.

The first was that Michelle Ryan who played Zoe "You ain't my muvva" Slater in EastEnders is to be the new Bionic Woman in a "re-imagining" similar to the very successful and brilliant Battlestar Galactica and made by the same team.

Interesting. Good luck to her. I will look forward to that.

The second and more worrying article was a feature on a survey about teenagers around the world. If you haven't seen it, this is the survey that looked into their habits. It's one of those surveys where the lower down in the table the better. The UK did not fare well.

The only thing we did well at was to be bottom of the table for accidental deaths. In everything else we were well above average: smoking, drinking, drugs and having a baby. We came top for two things: rating health as fair or poor and under-age sex.

I'm ashamed to say that the only surprise from this survey is that we were only 21st overall, just behind America. The Netherlands were at the top of the table.

And to think, those bloody kids are meant to be the ones paying our pensions in the years to come... no wonder people are getting concerned!
