Ben apparently has an IQ closely comparable to that of Einstein, or so he says. Yet when confronted with the technological supremacy that is Eduroam he falters time and time again and seemingly has the IQ of a belligerent toddler. He ends up being unable to even read the simplest instructions! One can assume this is caused by a mind-numbing fear at anything more technologically advanced than a wheel given he studies Ancient History. However most of you freshers do not have this excuse!!!
It's really not hard, so I can't really fathom why no one has done it!!!

Dear Incoming Freshers,
Welcome to the hallowed halls of Balliol College, a place of learning, camaraderie, and intellectual growth. As you embark on this exciting journey, we have a clarion call to issue, a rallying cry that concerns each and every one of us: Join the fight against the insidious influence of Facebook.
In the spirit of unity and resolve, we implore you to heed our call to action, for this battle is yours as much as it is ours. We must unite to confront a modern-day menace that threatens the very essence of our society.
Ben has had an exciting holiday and I'm excited to share some of his more exotic destinations with you!!
Ben continues to cheat death - this week directly attracting the ire of Poseidon with his prowess in the Octopush Cuppers. Ben fought hard. Alongside the waterborne divisions of Balliol's Armies he waddled steadfastly in his flippers to the edge of Iffley pool. Rattling his 9 inch long hockey stick at the enemy fear flooded the enemies eyes and they trembled before the might of Balliol.
This modern fairytale started on the 11th February 2003. The three wise men had been following the star high in the sky for a period of three days, when they came upon the wonderful Liverpool. Unfortunately, they did not quite make it to the beautiful Liverpool University Hospital to see the birth of Ben. Having seen the general despair of all living in the North they decided that God must have been mistaken and turned back Eastward.
Having been inundated with virulent responses that the Balliol JCR (Registered Charity Number - 1144032) is turning into a Nanny State, I have decided to ignore these and press ahead with the implementation of an alert system for the Weekly Updates.
There will be a test of these procedures on the 31st of April at 3:00 PM.
Ben has gone from strength to strength over the vacationary period. Having ended his term on Everistian heights of winning the tower 4/6 Balliol Green Week Energy Saving by Cutting down on Heating Competition, he managed to conquer the government assigned cooking challenge otherwise known as the BBC Goodfoods Key Lime Pie.
At this point he has transcended far above the insignificance that us mere mortals act out in our lesser lives. Having braved the sharp wit and elevated mental acuity of Jeremy Paxman, Benjamin thought it wise to attempt the unthinkable; to face challenges that no Balliolite has ever surmounted before. He wanted to try to win the Balliol Green Week Energy Saving competition.
