Honduran white bats. Just click. It’s really cute.

Because Vladimir Putin has banned seal hunting.

This is quite old. But still. Cute.

Here, Have Some Immature Name Humour

Britain sees decline of Cocks, Balls and Death. They’re all surnames of course, but a cookie for you if you giggled inanely for a second like I did.

Pfft. Everyone Knows True Blue British People Only Have One Bath A Year

Robert Pattinson responds to earlier comments proclaiming him to be a smelly little animal.

Oh, and he keeps a little black book filled with the names of all the people who write negative stuff about him. What he then does with these names is unclear.

Shooting Someone’s Head Off In Virtual Reality Helps Vision

In Games, Health, People on March 30, 2009 at 1:49 am

Shooter games help with contrast sensitivity. That’s the ability to pick out changes in shades of grey on a uniform background. Video games help train this ability, something that doctors didn’t think was possible.

I think it’s time I dug out my Metal Gear Solid games.

The Haunting In Connecticut

In Celebrities, Film on March 29, 2009 at 6:10 pm

Rotten Tomatoes gives it 4.3/10, IMDb users give it a 5.7/10. I give it a ‘Sleeping with the lights on tonight’. But then again, I’m a scaredy-cat with an imagination that’s too big for my own good.

It was a good effort by all the cast. The scary bits start right from the beginning- so take one friend, or more, if you want to watch it.

One thing though- why the hell does Bart Allen Kyle Gallner play in so many creepy movies?

David Beckham got his 109th ‘cap’ for England, family cheers him on. I have no idea what that means (but apparently it’s something record-breaking). I just love the Beckhams.
