At least orienteering can claim it is not a sport riven by gender stereotypes.

I'd really rather not give the Telegraph more hits (on the grounds that along with the Daily Mail, it's the UK's home of media climate change denialism), but since I don't have the BBC link, you can find the ugly/entertaining details here.

Not having ever been drunk myself, my mind boggles as to what sort of state one would have to be in to think that trying to take on a bouncer who was (presumably) at least double your size was a good idea.

Probably needs a bit of flirting going on at the banquet before that happens.

Being small is now a defence! Funny as. I wonder what the reaction of BOF was?
