The Tab’s Top Tips for Strike Boredom

For those affected by the strike, The Tab have come up with 5 activities you should have been doing with your time instead…


It’s amazing what strikes can do. Teaching comes to a halt. Lectures are postponed. Dieudonne runs rampage on Facebook with his rightfully supported views. For the few of you out there resisting a lazy day in bed, here are The Tab’s top five ways to spend a strike day off:

1. Striking one off

This one is universal. You’re on your own in your room, got a bit of time to spare. All you need is some tissue and a laptop. No worries if Sky have drilled through your internet, make an embarrassing trip to Costcutter and make a quick dash to the top shelf. That should burn through some minutes. Hopefully that’s the only thing that burns….

Internet down? Don't let it get it down ;)

2. Getting ready for Smack

It’s a Tuesday. That’s fate telling you it’s your night to go out and smash it. Start looking down your sofas and behind your beds for those spare pound coins…you’ll be needing them for all the vodbulls you’ll be buying. Remember to use Dante Fierro’s Smack pulling tips!

Getting on it early! Lets hope he makes it to smack!

3. Go to Coventry

Trying to sell this one is like trying to sell a sense of humour to a Boar journalist. But we’ll give it a shot. The world of Ikea: have some meatballs, try some beds out but don’t do any striking off there. Although it might help you fit in with the locals.

Nothing better than the 11 bus to Cov! Again, lets hope he makes it back to got to smack!

4. Do some work

It’s safer than travelling to Coventry, right? Crack on with some reading, plan an essay; the world is your oyster. Be outrageous and do some further reading. Yes, there is such a thing as further reading.

Getting on it.....only in different ways...

5. Read the Tab

Great articles. Gifted writers. Playful puns. And an agony uncle willing to give anyone the D perspective. This should be your first and foremost activity today. Read our articles, and maybe even come up with your own ideas with all that spare time…

What more can we say?! This is by far the best option...
