This gran’s polite Google search will melt your heart, some monkey business, Marvel superheroes are just like you and me, in that they take selfies, you can actually retweet yourself (and you’ll never guess who actually did this) plus a tech world first for Mongolia.
Search: this Gran’s polite Google search will melt your heart
Omg opened my Nan’s laptop and when she’s googled something she’s put ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. I can’t ??? pic.twitter.com/hiy2tecBjU

TWITTER: you can now retweet yourself
And in the wise words of Harold and Kumar, “Just because you’re hung like a moose, doesn’t mean you gotta do porn”. Just because you can doesn’t mean you should unless you want to be like Trump. Yes, The Donald actually retweeted himself. Not sure why I’m so surprised though.

HEADLINE: you really can’t make this stuff up
A vervet monkey fell onto a transformer, causing a 3 hour national blackout. The monkey, who survived, was given to a wildlife sanctuary. This almost sounds too hard to be true, the equivalent of the dog ate my homework or the coal got wet. My favourite line to come out of all of this, has to be from the New York Times:
“Kenyan consumers have long suspected a little monkey business when it comes to their power bills, but the news making its way around the country on Wednesday was almost too much to believe.” I can imagine the journo cracking up as he wrote those words.
Mongolia is the first country (government system) to ditch street names and numbers in favour of 3 words. This is because Mongolia is one of the most sparsely populated countries and most places don’t have street names. FUN FACT: The UN already uses this system.

I'd love to chat to you some more.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
