Black Friday and the Other Worst Days of the Modern Year

Oh great, Black Friday again, the one day of the year when it's OK for companies to routinely lie about things being cheap and play model number switcheroo, pressuring us into buying stuff we don't need because only through buying things can we achieve happiness. How much does one of those powerline things usually cost anyway? No one knows. No one's ever bought one at the full RRP. Read More >>

Win For Grammar Police As Cornwall Council Adds Apostrophe to Land’s End

Apparently until this week, Land's End wasn't officially called "Land's End". It was "Lands End", or, in some horrific cases it was even "Lands' End". I'm a big fan of punctuation, and looking at either of those two makes me feel a bit weird inside. Read More >>

Surrey Police Get ‘Youth Language Training’

Work-mandated training courses are undeniably dull, but this one, that police officers in Surrey are being given, might just be more entertaining than most. Officers are being taught 'youth language' – words and phrases that are used by youngsters that seem pretty foreign to anyone not fully 'down with the kids'. Read More >>

A Fake Warren Buffett is Spreading Inspiration on Twitter

Most fake Twitter accounts exist only to troll people and generally be a nuisance. But not the fake Warren Buffett Twitter account that popped up over the weekend.

And actually, the advice it had to give wasn't all that bad: Read More >>

The Universe’s Coolest Dentist Channels Guardians of the Galaxy in the Fight Against Bacteria

As someone who used to work in local news, I’m a sucker for local ads. They’re practically in a world of their own. After spotting a billboard on Twitter for a US dental office going by...wait for it...the Guardians of the Gums, I only had one thought: “Oh please let there be a commercial.” Luckily for us, the galaxy has delivered.

An Orange Supremacist and Other Nicknames: What Charlie Brooker’s Cancelled 2017 Wipe Could Have Said About Trump

Last year Charlie Brooker announced that he was going to ruin everyone's Christmas by cancelling 2017 Wipe, the cynical yearly round up we really could have used after that abysmal year. Brooker was "too busy" apparently, because the end of last year also saw the release of a new selection of Black Mirror episodes on Netflix alongside Cunk on Britain. Read More >>

Blockchain is the latest hip thing across the world of business, with marketers and investors seemingly jumping at the chance to get involved with anything even remotely blockchain related.
