NEVER FORGET: one year on

It's May 16th (really, look at the date above this post's title!). Know what happened a year ago today? That's right - the great chlorine leak. Without that blunder, we writers would write less, the students would be only informed by newsletters and sporadic Tempo issues and the teacher staff might not worry about every wrong action being mercilessly ripped to pieces in public. In short, without the gas leak, you wouldn't be reading this blog.

But instead of looking back by 365 days (or 366, this year is a leap year, isn't it?), let's look back a whole lot longer - to the time of expert of prediction, Michel de Nostredame, commonly known as Nostradamus.

In the mid sixteenth century, Nostradamus wrote this:
And lo, in the Templar school,
In seven and thousands two,
Under a new man's rule,
In air, death will blow through.
Quatrain 47, Nostradamus

Did Nostradamus predict the chlorine leak? Did the staff ignore the blatant clues? Did everyone at BSF forget swimming pools use chlorine? Has the government covered up students' deaths? Is the new building a way to shamelessly hide Temple Moor's terrible past? Did that idea backfire stunningly? The answer to all of these is a clear and definite yes.

I'm detecting a scary but entertaining degree of insanity in 'anonymous'. Is it just me or do the builders get paid enough to realise that there'll be chlorine in an old swimming pool?
