For certain values of all...

All male drunkbis are called Simon or Dave/id
All male cycling campaigners are called Dave/id or Richard
All Pace Cambridge engineers all called Richard or Andrew
All sinister sysadmins are called Eric

Everyone called Dave is a loveable drunken arse

Everyone called David is sometimes a little bit too sober but a reliable, solid friend

Everyone called Ian has a cynical sense of humour

Women whose names begin with E are mad

I know someone called david (well, Daevid) who is never a little bit too sober! Come to think of it, i don't think i've ever seen him stay even a little bit sober for long! :)

I agree with the Women whose names begin with E thing though :)

I have a mad uncle called Eric. Do you think the E rule applies to men as well? He isn't a sys admim of any kind by the way.

All the male cycling campaigners I know are called either Richard (or Rich, or some variant on that) or Andy.

Perhaps they're engineers in their day jobs?

All Erics are a bad idea. Really, trust me on this one

oh, I dunno. I remember a certain Erik being not half bad. OK, I wouldn't want to get in a relationship with him, but as a casual shag...

OK, I'll shush. this is drunk-me talking.
