SOME VERY MODERN WHISKY (Gaynor)
For the first time in over 100 years Jack Daniel’s has changed its recipe and has come up with a new unaged rye whiskey. Now I’m not an expert on spirits but I’m pretty sure that this stuff probably tastes better after a couple of years or two! The most disturbing thing about it is that this means the whiskey turns out clear and not brown. Hopefully it won’t get mixed with the vodka!
FRIGHT LOSS (Aimee)
Those who are under the false belief that they can lose weight couch potato style could be right-but only if they’re scaring the crap out themselves watching horror flicks!
It’s been revealed that the jolts of fear and adrenaline-pumping terror can use as much as 113 calories! Fans of the classic The Shining are in for the biggest shock loss with the average viewer using up a massive 184 calories! Jaws took the second spot with an average of 161 calories!
After being exposed to both these films pretty young and watching repeatedly it was no wonder I was a lanky larry limbed teenager!
CELEBRITY PRESIDENTS (Victoria)
With the race for The Whitehouse hotting up and elections looming, The BBC have produced a fun interactive feature which aims to find your perfect celebrity president.
It has long been an election tactic to recruit high profile supporters; an approach which has been integral to Obama’s 2012 campaign thus far.
But what if they were running themselves a la Ronald Reagan?
THE SEX LIVES OF CONJOINED TWINS (Aimee)
I think we’d be lying to ourselves if we didn’t admit that we’ve questioned and imaginatively explored the sex lives of conjoined twins! After TLC reality show Abby and Brittany went on air Alice Dreger, professor of clinical medical humanities and bioethics at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of medicine, was pestered by journalists looking for a window into the taboo subject!
I got excited when I read the title of the article but although interesting, it doesn’t really answer any questions we’ve probably thought out loud!
The article ends with a question we’re probably most interested in: when a conjoined twin has sex with a third person, is the sex incenstuous? Homosexual? Or group sex?
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm! We will all just have to ponder these musings some more!
CATS OR DOGS? YOU DON’T HAVE TO CHOOSE (Sarah)
So, forever a sucker for cute animals I couldn’t resist the latest mashable photo album depicting the forbidden love between dogs and cats. And before anyone get’s on their perverse high horse, I assure you it is all cuteness and cuddles. From tabbies entangled with greyhounds to Alsatians sniffing black and white Toms, this album provides everyone who can’t decide whether they favour cats or canines, with the perfect alterative – you can have both. At the same time. Madness.
