Davie Bowie is a pop star who you might be familiar with. He's only one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. His career has been one of debauchery and excess, great songs, and an ability to rock a surreal costume like no other.
For guys, finding a date can be tough. And things become especially crappy around Valentine’s Day when, if you’re me, you find yourself surrounded not by the joyous adulation of your partner who you’ve showered with gifts and love. But by sad, lonely guys. Drunk, sad, lonely guys.
Mostly with newborn babies you dress them in a onesie, the all-in-one bodysuit that ensures they’re kept warm and relatively dry but means you can also get access to their diaper quickly when you need to. This baby has a kind of onesie, but this onesie is the sort of onesie you expect Iron Man to dress his child in. It’s a full-on exoskeleton made from advanced high strength steel and comes complete with heads up display, enhanced running ability, and a collision warning system. Fortunately, just like a normal onesie, it does feature a butt flap so baby can dispose of his poop without making a mess. Maybe in the future this is what the babies of 2020 will be dressed like, but for now we can but wonder at it. Because in reality it’s actually showing off a whole bunch of cool smart caring technology featured on the new Hyundai range of cars. Still, awesome idea. Science, make it so!

Landline telephones, surely they’ll be obsolete pretty soon because no one but telemarketers—and possibly your gran—uses them any more. Relish broadband decided to find out just how irrelevant they are and took to the streets of London waving a £50 note around, offering it up to anyone who could dive into their mind and come back with their landline number.
Chances are, if you were a bit of a nerdy kid you got into Lego Technic. Chances are you’re probably still into it as an adult. One of the best things there has always been about Lego was to use your imagination to it’s limits as you tried to create mini replicas of you favorite cars, trucks, diggers, trains, planes, and well, pretty much anything that floated your boat as a kid, even if the end result looked nothing like the original. Things have come a long way since those days with an amazing approach to detail, workings and reconstruction of the real thing and you’ll find out in this video just how much workthat goes behind the design of a Lego Technic 42030 Volvo L350F Wheel Loader, it’s very appealing. To create the toy version of this real world piece of construction equipment the design team went to meticulously-detailed lengths. The result is a complex, remote-controlled model which replicates all the features of the actual L350F, the largest of Volvo’s wheel loaders.
Get Will Smith on the phone quick because I, Robot has just taken one step closer to becoming reality, the next gen of SSD cards has arrived and, according to this video, it can turn into a robot, travel the world at incredible speeds and charm the pants of any woman. But maybe those last three should be taken with a pinch of salt. Oh yeah, it can also run your computer pretty damn fast as well, but that doesn’t seem a biggie for the new Samsung 850 Pro. Introducing Victo the robot, powered by SSD 850 PRO with 3D V-NAND, the first SSD available to the consumer that uses Samsung’s 3D V-NAND technology, which stacks memory cells vertically. What does that mean? Well it means you get greater capacity, speed, endurance, and more effective power usage. So if you are looking for an ultra-fast computer and something that might start making a play for your girlfriend when you are not around then this could be what you need.
Nothing to see here, just President Barack Obama going for a casual stroll across Times Square with his entourage in tow. Well, not the actual president but a fake one—a look-alike called Bronx Obama—but that doesn’t stop the crowds from coming out en-masse. And it’s an epic undertaking by YouTube pranksters Maxman.tv as they troll New York, organise a motorcade, negociate with suspicious cops, and finally deliver the fake POTUS to the chanting patriotic crowds—and it looks like it was totally worth it. Thank God no one tried to assassinate him though.

Although banned in many countries the practice of FGM still goes on, with the latest research revealing that 125 million girls and women across the globe are suffering the consequences of it. Charity Plan UK want the practice to be completely eradicated and need the world to act as one to help achieve this. “FGM is a human rights violation facing millions of girls and young women across the world,” says Plan UK CEO, Tanya Barron. “We believe FGM is a global problem that requires a coordinated global solution. Because the beliefs and traditions that are used to justify FGM cross borders, we won’t end FGM in the UK without ending it abroad.” Because, you see, it’s not just something that happens to other people in other countries, it’s something that’s happening right now under our noses in the UK and the USA. Earlier in the year UK newspaper The Guardian ran a campaign to raise awareness about the issue, managing a successful petition that saw the UK government agree to teach the risks of FGM in schools across the country.

If you were on your way to work one morning and there was a giant futuristic silver box inviting you inside in the middle of a square you always walked by, would you just ignore it? Of course you wouldn't, you would go inside to investigate—which is exactly what the residents of Cape Town did when it happened to them. What they weren't ready for was the shock once they got in there and the change of clothes it precipitated. The lesson here is if you're unsure of something it's probably a prank, so best to send your friend in first.
There’s no doubting that computers are cool and all that, but can they ever be as all-out fun as running around screaming with a stick? No, because all the Angry and Flappy Birds in the world couldn’t possibly make up for the thrill of stick running—unless maybe you have an Oculus Rift with which you can replicate stick running virtually.
Memory cards, they're robots in disguise! At least, they are in this video which shows a microSD card that doesn’t just store endless photos of your cat, but instead it’s a tiny robot with a jet pack that can run, fly, swim, battle magnets, is impervious to X-rays, can bust through walls like they were made of paper AND has a parachute. Surely it deserves its own Michael Bay movie?
Crisis Films has unveiled this first trailer and poster for ‘Downhill,’ a comedy/drama where four old school friends remind one another why they’ve not caught up in more than 20 years. Combining keenly observed situational comedy; some of Britain’s finest comedy talent and a breathtaking journey through some of the best of British countryside, DOWNHILL is a comedy of errors, a testament to the tragically incompatible and a blow-by-blow account of the highs and lows of decades-long friendships.
It doesn’t matter if it’s your pet, you, your girlfriend, or even a chimney, farting is intrinsically hilarious and this humorous video featuring guffing gas flares proves it. But behind the flatulence lies not a late night curry but a serious message about fracking. That aside, these anti-fracking chimneys will have you giggling like a school kid.
A Civil War Hits London, This Shocking One Second A Day Video Shows How It Destroys A Little Girl’s Life
Filming one second of your (or your children’s) life every day and editing it together into a continuous film, popularised by Cesar Kuriyama, is a great way to look back at the happy memories, the good, good times—but this version of that popular trope will give you a bit of a jolt. Posing the question, “What if London was Syria?” it’s seen through the eyes of a little girl and imagines how, over the course of a year, her life turns from normal and happy, to homeless, destitute and broken. Epic stuff.
Richard Branson claims to care about whales but Virgin Holidays sells tickets to SeaWorld. Keeping orcas in tanks for 'entertainment' is NOT conservation. It's NOT education. It IS cruel and it has to stop. Tell Sir Richard Branson to stop Virgin Holidays selling tickets to SeaWorld. Watch the film, sign the petition and share, share, share! http://bit.ly/1mv7UeW.
You’ll leave the game knowing much more about your mother than you probably want to.
