When a BBC headline looks more exciting than it actually is …

The following headline on the BBC News landing page caught my eye in a “what on earth will they research next” kind of way (honestly!) :

Only to be somewhat disappointed by the actual article :

Scientists say they have published the most detailed brain scans “the world has ever seen” as part […]

You have two cows …

Via ZeroHedge, I have seen similar ones before but I think this is the best one yet (click the image to see full size version) :

Pictorial Interlude – When minimum alcohol pricing doesn’t work, beer will only be available in this HM Government approved size …

I think you will wear out your finger trying to open the cans faster than it evaporates from your glass …

Electric car charging subsidies – yet more expense on the bills of the many to bribe the wealthy …

Electric cars – so popular that the government is now going to spend even more of our money on bribes to increase their use :

The government has announced that it will cover up to 75% of the cost of installing charging points for electric vehicles in garages and driveways.

Artistic Interlude – Infinity and Alice in a suit …

Hopefully only another month of slavery but in the mean time, this one caught my eye – simple but very clever :

And I wasn’t expecting this one from a Finnish poster campaign – scrubs up rather well I think :

Modern British Life – Nag, Nag, Nag …

Nag, nag, nag …

Today started for me at 04:30 when the radio alarm came on with an NHS advert reminding me that A&E and 999 are only for emergencies. After a shower and coffee, I drove a few junctions down the motorway and was reminded on the first overhead sign not […]

Video Interlude – Pedestrians in need of clean underwear …

Whilst work is preventing anything useful here, how about these lucky buggers :

Notice the chick on the right nearly being decapitated by the tailgate!

Very lazy bat …

This one amused me somewhat :

I am not sure if it is an ex-bat or if it just felt the need to put its feet up while sleeping.

Parents think it is too dangerous to let their kids play in the snow. I wonder why that is …

We seem to have become a timid race here in the UK.

From the Torygraph, we have this :

Nearly a third of parents believe it is “too dangerous” to let their children play outside in the snow, in case they slip on ice or get hit by a snowball, a survey has shown. […]

Apparently, we used to make things here in the UK …

A brief snippet – the following graph from a ZeroHedge article showing the share of global exports in 1980 and 2011 grabbed my attention with the declines in every category for things made in the UK :

Interestingly, South Korea’s gains in each category over the last 30 years almost match the UK’s […]

Even The Daily Mash would consider this news story to be too bizarre …

The opening paragraphs from two articles, one from The BBC and one from The Daily Mash – the question is, which is which?

Article A :

SKY viewers on unemployment benefits will only be allowed to watch documentaries, according to new guidelines.

As part of a radical government overhaul of televised entertainment, those out […]

The world’s most useless machine gets an upgrade …

The world’s most useless machine has been upgraded – looks like fun for an hour or two at least : _ _

Back to the UK which is decidedly still in la-la land …

The Wasp is knackered after a long day of wing flapping to return to this strange little isle, where it would seem the government is still as demented as a box of frogs :

The prime minister said it was vitally important the government maintained its “credibility for deficit reduction” so it could continue […]

I would not want to be fishing off Denmark later …

Not very often you see Hurricane Force 12 mentioned in a met office forecast along with some stomach churning seas (phenomenal definition here) :
