Riot confusion

Why do people use a riot as an excuse to loot their local branch of Currys? Surely if you find yourself in the middle of riot then your first instinct is to very quickly get somewhere where it is...

Feel badly about your riots.

We have them all the time here, usually after sporting events or floods (looting). It's just that America is so vast, they always seem rather spread out over space and time. Won't help your tourism...

How do I choose an ISP?

My broadband access has been very flaky over the past month or so, but the last straw was a national outage from Friday until yesterday. So I've decided to bite the bullet and change Internet...

Choices of looters

Forget televisions, iphones, laptops or designer trainers. Large packs of Tesco value basmati rice is the trophy to be proud of

Children's names

It's strange how people name their kids lately. The 2 families sitting at the next table in a pub recently called theirs Flossie, Queenie, Jango, Dixie and Henry. The last 2 aren't so bad. The...

Riot in East London disperses as it becomes "too mainstream"

A riot brewing in Dalston, East London, has dispersed when the rioters deemed it had become too "popular and conformist". In an echo of the disruption that's swept London in recent days, a posse...

Too Hot For Newsbiscuit

Does anyone, especially the admin/editors have examples of subs they liked but were never run for reasons of being dodgy? We just had the Winehouse/business cards one which seems to have had this...

I'm sure some of you here are already familiar with this book but if not, I urge you to read it. It's one of the better parody books of recent years in my opinion. Written by student Bobby Henderson...

Can anyone see a way out for the USA?

I just read a story that said Apple had greater cash reserves than the USA. They are raking in billions a month whereas the country is overspending billions a month. What to do?, I'd privatise...

Market Meltdown, the "experts" hit the TV

On Newsnight, some spotty 12 year old from PWC says that western ecconomies need to spend less than they earn. Really? No Shit Sherlock! I'm old enough to have a cheque book and I figured that one...

Splendid web-optimised FP today

That's all I wanted to say. Apart, that is, from stressing that it is entirely coincidental that I end up posting back on here for the first time in an age when a search for 'Bieber topless' could...
