I also read the article you posted on the forum and i just wondering whether the quad in UK were his ideas ... you know, perhaps those quads are related.

I am deeply sorry if i hurt you in any way...
You didn't hurt me...your question was dripping with sarcasm. Both Cambridge and Oxford were established long before Thomas Jefferson's time, although I'm not sure when the present-day universities were built. Did you seriously think that Jefferson had something to do with the design of those campuses?

Actual that looks like a normal state school uniform in the UK, religous schools have even more bizzare uniforms, such as Christs Hospital Quaker School in England (uniform pic below)
