  • Muse: OFF TOPIC: This Is What Your Brain…,

    I was moved by the way he admitted that initially he had opposed same-sex marriage for the simple reason he was raised Catholic and that was the done thing. He had never questioned or thought about it.

  • Hard News: The Exploding Banana Scandal,

    Actually the funniest part of the whole story to me was the editor of the SST saying that their journalists had letters on them explaining it was all a test. This was in case they were found by Police to prevent an evacuation of the stadium.
