Firstrung: Cobblers to estate agents, the infestation that will surely disappear

Great article from John Stepek@moneyweek "Invasion of the Estate Agents," screamed a Sunday Times headline last week. Instantly, I had a vision of our green and pleasant land overrun by phalanxes of overly-aggressive 19-year-olds with perma-tans, pastel shirts and fist-sized knots in their ties. They marched along, staring fixedly ahead, bellowing their masters' mantra: "Property prices can only go up."

I know this is a little off topic, but why do EAs all have tie knots the size of footballs? Is it something to do with not using the back 98% of their brain?
