Rough roads

The linked video is not for everyone - ten of the worst roads on earth. The usual suspects (like India, Pakistan, Bolivia, China), one that I would have taken had it been allowed (New Zealand) and one that is completely out of place in this selection (the Stelvio pass, which I have driven several times). First seen here.

Shadow crossover

I'm not sure whether this is a proper optical illusion, but I find the overall effect, with the shadow duplicating the two figures, quite interesting. First seen here.

Cremica Twin cream biscuits

OK, we have this new cookie, a biscuit with chocolate and orange cream - how are we going to market it? Well, getting an uncomfortable model and pooring the stuff all over her was clearly not the right answer. First seen here.

Jonathan Livingstone Masala

A new species? No, just a seagull that fell into a barrel of discarded curry chicken tikka masala. Staff at a wildlife hospital eventually managed to clean him, but he kept smelling deliciously... First seen here.

I love your hat

It is rare to see such "shot at just the right angle and moment" shots with celebrities, let alone four of the most famous people in the world. Michelle Obama is really depicted here as if she was wearing a novelty hat. First seen here.

A piece of pure nostalgia: a Not the nine o'clock news parody of Kate Bush by Pamela Stephenson from 1980. For me, Kate is the best pop/rock singer of all time, but I can enjoy this brilliant spoof nevertheless. First seen here.
