Watch it, it's brilliant. It's meant to start at 47 seconds, if it doesn't I'd suggest going straight there.

Play nicely!

Play up! Play up! And play the game!
By Sir Henry Newbolt


There's a breathless hush in the close to-night
Ten to make and the match to win
A bumping pitch and a blinding light,
An hour to play, and the last man in.
And it's not for the sake of a ribboned coat.
Or the selfish hope of a season's fame,
But his captain's hand on his shoulder smote
"Play up! Play up! And play the game!"


The sand of the desert is sodden red-
Red with the wreck of the square that broke
The gatling's jammed and the colonel dead,
And the regiment blind with dust and smoke.
The river of death has brimmed its banks,
And England's far and Honor a name,
But the voice of a schoolboy rallies the ranks-
"Play up! Play up! And play the game!"


This is the word that year by year,
While in her place the school is set,
Every one of her sons must hear,
And none that hears it dare forget.
This they all with joyful mind
And bear through life Eke a torch in flame,
falling fling to the host behind-
"Play up! Play up! And play the game!"

I am not referring to the excessive forms of PC.

But I was just thinking about how to refer too older people and it made me think that I do try and use the least offensive language on some occasions and police myself.

So how do you refer to the over 70's?

OAPS? Geriatrics? Older persons. Golden oldies? Elderly. mature.

Why though, if it's our brain that's being tricked is the camera also tricked?
