Masterchef has started again, which means this piece of epicness has to be shared…

This is fucking amazing.

Classic.

If I ever had to explain the internet to someone this is the video I would refer them to.

Oberyn Nymeros Martell, Tyrion muttered under his breath as he fell in beside the man. The Red Viper of Dorne. And what in the seven hells am I supposed to do with him? He knew the man only by reputation, to be sure… but the reputation was fearsome. When he was no more than sixteen, Prince Oberyn had been found abed with the paramour of old Lord Yronwood, a huge man of fierce repute and short temper. A duel ensued, though in view of the prince’s youth and high birth, it was only to first blood. Both men took cuts, and honor was satisfied. Yet Prince Oberyn soon recovered, while Lord Yronwood’s wounds festered and killed him. Afterward men whispered that Oberyn had fought with a poisoned sword, and ever thereafter friends and foes alike called him the Red Viper. 

Oberyn is just too fucking cool, maaaaan

Oh, fair enough.

So basically I need to buy a house!

surely you should count as a mature student and therefore it should all have gone on your own income rather than your parents? Or was it because you lived at home before going to uni?

Yeah. It’s based on household income.

I don’t really like complaining BUT it really really pisses me off that I’m not entitled to the same student loan and bursaries as the majority of my friends, just because my parents earn more money than theirs (in theory - not actually the case in some examples).

My student loan doesn’t even cover my rent. I would literally be incapable of feeding myself if my parents didn’t support me. Meanwhile, some of my friends are receiving free iPads and laptops and having money taken away from their tuition fees. How is that fair?

I’m 23 years old. I’m supposed to be independent. My parents’ income should be completely irrelevant to my own ventures. How am I possibly supposed to find motivation in a system where I’m taught if I earn more money I’m not actually entitled to spend it how I want?

I don’t blame the people who are taking advantage of subsidised tuition fees, bursaries and larger student loans (capitalising on that stuff is just human nature), but I think I’m entitled to them too. And I’d like someone to explain to me why I’m not.
