29 Pre-Internet Woes Under-30s Don’t Get. I'm not saying this makes me feel old. But it does.

9 secrets I've uncovered about depression. Number 4, especially. I've sometimes had that thing of driving along and thinking, "wouldn't it be soooo easy to just 'accidentally' crash into the central reservation..?" Thank God I've never done anything about it...but the thought has been there...

Whiny Baby Gamer Bro Is So Mad About Nintendo’s Female Characters He’s Hate-Buying All of Their Amiibo. I've sometimes, jokingly, suggested that it would be cool to buy up all copies of [insert boyband du jour's name here - used to be Westlife of Boyzone, no idea what kickin' choonz the kidz are getting down to today]'s newest single on the day of release to ensure that no other fans could buy it. But, y'know - jokingly. This guy is, apparently, doing this seriously, in an attempt to prove that Nintendo is wrong. Oh well. btw, I've never played Super Smash Bros, but Robin looks darned cool!

Rather wonderful parody of Scandi-drama from Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse. With Pingu as the villain. It's...brilliant. Warped, but brilliant...

How Ernie Wise (Almost) Made The UK’s First Mobile Phone Call. That famous trivia question about "who made the first mobile 'phone call in the UK?" where the answer is (bizarrely) Ernie Wise? Turns out, probably not strictly true.

Also, this clip from Tomorrow's World (linked half way down the comments section) is priceless as a piece of history:

You know the old joke about a Star Wars Stormtrooper and a Star Trek redshirt get into a fight? The Stormtrooper misses, but the redshirt dies anyway? Well...

...looks like maybe the Federation would have the firepower on its side anyway. Mind you...The Millennium Falcon is a far cooler ship than any USS NCC 1701...
