Ryan Reynolds Sent a Gift to the Guy Who Changed the Avengers: Endgame URL Into a Deadpool Advertisement

When the Avengers: Endgame trailer dropped, fans who visited AvengersEndgame.com were met with an odd surprise. The domain, it turns out, is being squatted on, and its owner, Twitter user @AGuyInChair, has turned it into a redirect. For Deadpool.

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.

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 >>
