In Brief
  • Facial Recognition Consumerism – Fifth Element World

    For those of you that remember anything other than Milla Jovovich’s all-but-naked body in 1997 Sci Fi thriller The Fifth Element, you might recall their pretty laughable portrayal of the twenty-third century future. We’ll give them the flying cars – they’ve […]

  • Origami Vs Latex – Condom Warfare

    Condoms are great, but they also totally suck. They protect you against HIV, weepy, open herpes sores (as long as they’re on the shaft and not the general groin area, obviously) and arguably most importantly, a lifetime’s worth of child […]

  • Syrian Army Retakes Qusair

    The civil war in Syria rages on, well into its second year. With regular to-ing and fro-ing between rebel forces and regime-supporters, it’s hard to keep on top of what seems to be a fairly fluid, and yet somehow still […]
