The Portable Notebook BBQ: Best £20 I’ll spend this summer

Portable BBQ

Portable BBQ

Yesterday I received a large package at work. Last Thursday, I co-incidentally received the usual email from Firebox.com, one of them websites where if I had all the money in the world, I would buy one of everything on that website. I usually have a quick skim though the email, laugh at some of the stuff in it, and then trash it. This time was different.

The Portable BBQ caught my eye. To date, I have been to two BBQ’s and summer hasn’t even hit full flow. The problem me and my friends have is that we use the disposable BBQ’s, which last about 30 minutes at best and is no-where near enough time to cook meat for the amount of people that turn up. The portable BBQ was £20 with free delivery, and it folds up into a thin briefcase-esqe carry case containing the grills inside.

Well that was a no-brainer. Ordered.

Two days later I logged on to Firebox to look at the BBQ again – and it was sold out. Love it, just in time for the Royal Wedding pissup/BBQ on Friday. Note: I don’t give a flying shit about the wedding, we’re just using it as an excuse to drink and have a BBQ.

What happens when you stop smoking: The Memoirs of a Smoker

One of my work colleagues, who used to be a moderate smoker, recently told me “there’s nothing good about smoking”.

Cigarette Butts

Cigarette Butts: Many of them

I’m currently fighting an extreme uphill battle. It’s been around 5 days now without smoking and already I’ve learnt a very large amount about just what happens, both for your health, mentally and socially. I’ve also learnt how the government agencies such as the NHS look at you, and just what they assume about you. What both smokers and non-smokers think of you, the secretive underworld taboo that is “Social Smoking” and most importantly: who will support you and who won’t… in 5 days. Read on to find out just how rough the journey to stop smoking can be.

‘Soul by Ludacris’ headphones … FFS, really?

First we had the pathetic Beats by Dre, which were actually manufactured by Monster, with probably minimal input from the faux doctor himself. Now Soul by Ludacris has appeared, undercutting Beats by Dre in a poor attempt to get into your wallet without calling on their crew to shank you in the back whilst you ain’t looking.

Soul by Ludacris

Soul by Ludacris. Ludicrous.

You know what the saddest thing is about all this… the kids will quite happily hand over their money for this, because they believe that it will make them as cool as the artist. It doesn’t.

HUNT HER: This Woman Used Japan’s Tragedy to Troll The Entire Internet

I read this article on Kotaku in disgust, anger and hatred. In the back of my mind, all I was thinking was “4Chan will get her”. Here are some select comments that she has made in her YouTube videos (which she has now shut down):

She initially mentions that there are a lot of atheists in America, but “Japan was a good place to start“.

It’s so amazing to see how God can answer prayers like this, I’m so overjoyed“.

Dirty, venereal, disgusting in-bred she-whore.

I went straight to the comments of this article. The first featured, starred comment I saw was:

tamtampamela 4chan comment

"tamtampamela" has made a dangerous mistake

I feel a little better, knowing that someone else out there knows what is going to happen to her. It also now appears that the she-whore herself knows what is about to happen to her, as she closed her YouTube channel, with her last video faking that she was just an internet troll all along. Internet trolls know an internet troll, and that was not an internet troll.

Strongly recommended that you read the article in full over at Kotaku below.
