The Daily Mail

Unbelievable as this may appear to be, it seems the Daily Mail is now a mouthpiece for the Chinese Communist Party - https://www.theguardian.com/media/2016/aug/12/mail-online-teams-up-chinese-newspaper-peoples-daily

NASA

Amazing announcements from NASA that they've found oxygen on Mars, and also found over 1,000 "exoplanets" that might harbour life.

Brings to mind the Monty Python song......  You'd better hope that there's intelligent life somewhere out in space, because there's bugger all down here on earth.....

Eiffel Tower

Wonder whether they'll light it up with the colours of the Pakistan flag?

Russia

Russia pulls out of Syria just as the budget starts to get really tight....  Coincidence? Methinks not. They're screwed and have to tighten their belts. 

Guns

Sums it up perfectly

Rugby World Cup

I've said it before and I'll say it again - The only thing better than watching Scotland lose is watching Scotland lose in the last minute to a dodgy refereeing call.

Finally something at RWC2015 has put a smile on my face

RWC. Farrell v Ford

Wouldn't be surprised if Farrell starts the next game at 10. England looked better with him there. 

RWC. England 35 Fiji 11

A win's a win but it wasn't convincing. It panned out exactly as I expected. The Fijians gave it everything but ultimately tired and England ran away from them in the last 20 minutes.

Still not sure we're going to get past the Aussies and the Welsh. If we do then there's no reason why we shouldn't make the final.

Great British Bake Off

Really?

Why does it exist?

Who's idea was it?

Is (s)he still alive? If so, why?
