    The smoking ban has moved one of the three
    approved smoking locations at the UK campus to the
    middle of the carpark, so that I now have a view
    of these social outcasts from my window position.
    I can now estimate the average number of outcasts
    at the smoking point over the course of a day to
    be around 5 – sometimes just 1 or 2 desperados
    in the pouring rain, sometimes up to 8 or 10 –
    but I’d say 5 on average. Multiply that by 3
    for the 3 buildings and smoking locations, and
    I estimate we’re funding 15 heads to stand outside all day long! That’s a lot of dosh. I must say
    that the random sudden torrential downpours of the
    last couple of days have provided some good
