Cutting Corporation Tax to 10% wouldn't just be a good idea because it pisses off the French.

There are ten times more galaxies in our universe than we previously thought. That seems a pretty big error. Did some cosmologist put a decimal point in the wrong place?

What if the EU tried to stop us trading with them completely? Well, it's been tried before, and it worked out rather better for us than it did for them.

A quick tour of the remotest island in the world.

Britain's productivity has fallen. That's a good thing.

Nicely illustrated periodic table.

Baroness Scotland, Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, deserves better paint than we do. We have to pay for it, mind. Oh, and a £4,000 cupboard. And an "extremely expensive" chandelier. And gave a £30,000 a month contract to a close friends  having waived the normal process. If she’s one of the "100 Great Black Britons", it doesn't say a lot for "Black Britons", does it?

"This is your decision. The government will implement what you decide." (Seems pretty straightforward language to this Politics graduate. Not “Parliament will decide and this is only a recommendation” or even “Parliament will implement what you decide”. Simply “The government will implement what you decide”. But then judges seem to use the English language differently from normal people… Or is it that the government lied? But surely only the evil brexiteers lied…?)

Guinness World Record for "Longest Single Game of Football Manager": 173 days, 16 hours and 51 minutes. That’s just short of 4,169 hours. He’s been playing Football Manager 2010, and hasn’t upgraded to any of the subsequent iterations. If I add up the time I’ve put into successive campaigns of Football Manager 2010 (1539 hours), 2012 (3081 hours), 2014 (1176 hours) and now 2015 (2908 hours) it adds up to 8,704 hours. So, I’ve put more than double the hours into FM than he has. Impressed?

Apple now sells 17 different types of dongle.

Bill Clinton on Jeremy Corbyn: "...the maddest person in the room".

The god Ganesha has been reincarnated. That's nice.
