    Why the hell do you comment on every thread if you never have anything good or intelligent to say? Take it somewhere else.

    Alex looks good but tired. Must have been clubbing too hard in Sweden. Good for him though, he deserves the time off. Congrats to him. He looks good, even in that ridiculous hat. LOL!

    As much as I LOVE Alexander Skarsgard… I hate honorary doctorates! All they serve to do is crap on the hard work of people who have actually slugged it out for years completing real work!

    ElisaDay Says:

    it’s more to do with raising the profile of Leeds Met, they find successful former students to show to potential future students what they can achieve. Everyone knows that an honorary degree is not a real degree
