4. Spell space-jumper Felix’s surname. Spell it.

5. “I’m ashamed of it …  I want to take a bat to it. You can’t do anything with it. You’re supposed to, but it’s all a big lie.” What device, users of which, according to a controversial New York Times article this week, “suffer from shame and public humiliation”, is Rachel Crosby talking about?


1. Vote for Mitt Romney.

2. Binder. For context and an interesting counterview to the giggles, read this.

3. Rupert Murdoch. What he had tweeted was:

And he apologised for another tweet, about Hugh Grant, this morning.

4. Baumgartner.

5. The Blackberry smartphone.
