2 and a badger of sparkle

NEW: Architecture - http://www.mydigitallife.info/futuristic-rotating-tower-skyscraper-in-dubai/ The first of many new innovations I hope - this building is planned to revolve at 6 meters a minute - I presume there's a lift in the middle but I seriously have no idea how this is going to work :P

Food - 24'' x 18'' square pizzas from Snappy Tomato Pizza in Hayes are the biggest pizzas Ive ever heard of! Are there any pizza places that could top that?

Economics - Im taking a caption from Have I Got News For You: http://www.facebook.com/WORLEY9#!/photo.php?fbid=10150390439224314&set=a.10150390439209314.406434.13698744313&type=1&theater They sum up the current situation quite adequately, although admittedly I somehow didn't get the joke at first :/ Bad Dave ...

Tech - Taken from a while ago but still quite interesting - Origami Solar Panels - effectively 3D versions of the things on some roofs and they collect a lot more energy - most interesting of all is the fact it can look quite beautiful - a problem wind turbines have struggled with for many years

Motoring - One point for Vettel to be crowned a legend of F1 - thoroughly deserved too

Uni - A big shout out to all my lovely hallmates :D Thanks for the week of laughs so far :P

Word of the week - Freshers

14 hours

Tech - If you were planning on going on holiday to America, you can check the level of crime in certain areas first - http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/1bcoWM/www.trulia.com/crime/ - you can not only see hotspots of crime but check what type of crime was committed too

NEW: Space - A NASA satellite is hurtling towards the Earth and they say it will fall somewhere between 57 degrees north and 57 degrees south - THAT'S A BIG MARGIN FOR ERROR NASA!! FFS WORK IT OUT!!

NEW: Uni - Instead of struggling for fridge space in halls, take all the freezer space you can and fill it with cool boxes, then use half of them to cool your food in a medium sized container, when they melt replace them with the other half still in the freezer

Sport - Arsenal to finish outside Europe this season? AND HAYES DREW!!! :D

Food - Are you tired of in date biscuits? Do you crave something a little more grotesque? Well worry no more! A 104 year old biscuit is now up for auction! Only £1500 required - Available this fall!

NEW: Road Trip - 3 weeks across Britain taking the scenic route - more info. when this has been more thoroughly thought through ( haha funny few words :) )

NEW: Olympics - Gordon the Tramp of Bournemouth, aged 82 and known by his white beard and football scarf, has gained 18,000 fans on Facebook to carry the Olympic torch through the town - let's hope the Olympic commitee have a sense of humour!

Politics - Berlusconi has been bragging again! This time it was 11 prostitutes but more disturbingly 8 people have been charged with supplying him prostitutes - you can come to your own conclusions on this one ;)

Word of the week - Pretentious

One More Than Stan

Tech - True invisibility is amongst us. Of vehicles atleast. As long as they are covered in the hexagonal plates they stole off The Resistance's album cover. Not only can the BAE systems' creation disguise itself from Infra Red but it can also make itself look like a completely different object all together. This will inevitably become the ultimate killing machine for that zombie apocalypse - Just as long as they put a silencer on the turret and the engine ...

Sport - Golf's still boring - Hope the international break isn't gonna ruin the PremierLeague's performance this week - has Vettel won F1 yet?

NEW: Social - Try slip the word 'Bemistrual' in to conversation randomly to make yourself seem more intelligent, see who plays along :)

6 a side - Top of the 2nd Division :D p.s let me know if anyone actually cares about this portion of the blog, I just think it should be celebrated that's all :)

Music - Listened to D.I.R.T. Lab Audio for the first time in months today :) Neurofunk at its dirtiest - Tiffin says Rise to Remain's debut album is a 7/10, just sayin' ...

Food - Made a sumptuous Chocolate Torte with the boys Tuesday night - they seemed very impressed and it wins this summer's dessert of the year top spot http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=chocolate+torte&view=detail&id=61DC6D5D4EFCABFE8559AAEF37B1EB655E643E74&first=0&FORM=IDFRIR

Economics - Should have put a bet on the Interest rate staying the same - mind you - I might put a bet on it stay the same for the next 3 quarters too ...

Entertainment - Red or Black = worst. gameshow. evaaa
