High winds in Scotland explode some wind turbines… Not much you can say to that, is there?!

Someone please explain how a volcano can be “versatile”?!

NASA’s space probe Juno, bound for Jupiter, has sent back a photo of the Earth-Moon system from a distance of 6 million miles.
It’s funny, but I always forget just how far away the moon is from the Earth. Wierd, huh?

This is what people in my area do with their free time - Cheese Rolling. Otherwise known as throwing themselves down a muddy 1 in 2 hill after a 3.6kg Double Gloucester…

Despite the official event being cancelled, and thus there being no medical coverage present, and the weather being a typical British Bank Holiday, 200 people turned up for the five races - three for the men, one for the women, and an uphill one for the kids.

It is traditional though - it’s been running for hundreds of years, and people travel from the other side of the world to take part. The last official event, in 2009, had 15,000 people turn up.

All I say is crazy, crazy people…

Perhaps this ‘student’ should forget university and go back to school and learn why what they are doing is so disrespectful and why they are losing everyone’s sympathy and gaining our contempt…

Seeing this genuinely upsets me :(
