Two stuntmen die jumping from a helicopter into a reservoir. Not because of the impact, but because neither of them could swim. That’s a special level of stupid.

Reading University is boycotting University Challenge because of "misogynistic and sexist comments".

Something that history shows us pretty consistently, is that democracy works. Some people need to think whether they should really be so keen to ignore it.

Anarchist Monopoly

Keith Vaz will  be one of the MPs scrutinising the new laws on unexplained wealth. Keith Vaz.

Since Fidel Castro has finally died, it's time to remind ourselves just how many people died because of monsters like him.

Steve Bannon is clearly not an anti-semite. (I mean, simple sense-check. Would someone who was anti-semitic really do well in their career at Goldman Sachs? Or Breitbart?)

It wasn't "shy tories" who skewed polling results for the 2015 General Election, it was "busy" ones.

Man Bathes in Yellowstone Basin, Dissolves in Boiling Acid

The Enganche.

It's worth joining Pinterest just to browse through the Flat Earth boards.

At 55 years of age, Joe Thomas Senior of South Carolina State, is almost certainly Division 1 College Football's oldest ever player.

Someone is making and distributing a blacklist of supposedly pro-Trump RPG and other game developers. (Unless they aren’t. While this will seem all too likely to gamers and science fiction readers, I’m not actually convinced of the truth of this story. That said, I’m not convinced by the denials either.)

Those stuntmen are definitely Darwin Award nominees.

I agree that Steve Bannon probably isn't personally an anti-semite or white supremacist, but his embracing of the alt-right is likely to lead to anti-semitic and white supremacist outcomes whether he shares their views or is just using them as a vehicle for political gain.

I think Ben Shapiro, clearly not writing from a leftist/sjw perspective, expresses these concerns from a position of knowledge.

My heart goes out to those poor souls from the University of Reading. Living with the trauma that horrific assault caused them for one and a half years before even gathering enough strength to speak out must have been a living hell.

I am constantly boycotting something too. At the moment I am boycotting Dunkirk for the absence of diversity and female leads.
