“I get annoyed when people can’t stop banging on about politics on Facebook.” O RLY?

Say hello to the three cohosts of Good Morning Britain, a morning chat show on ITV. The show’s hosted by Charlotte Hawkins, Piers Morgan, and Susanna Reid.

While Reid and Hawkins aren’t as well known in the States, Morgan enjoys a, uh, controversial profile in the US, especially given his knack for inserting himself into any and every political and social controversy.

You only need to look at his Twitter feed for proof. Here he is on the Greenfell Towers tragedy.

Man Gets Hit By Bus, Walks It Off

June 28, 2017 Billy 0

It’s no secret that some people are just tougher than others.  Whether it stems from a rough childhood or a genetic predisposition to tolerating pain, toughness is something that you either have or you don’t. The guy in this video has it… a whole lot of it.

A city bus swerves out of control and plows into a pedestrian sending him skidding across the road.  What does the man do after he stops pavement surfing?  He causally gets up and walks into a pub like nothing happened.

Freezer-Prep Breakfast Burritos

June 28, 2017 Billy 0

Easy to go breakfast… I think so.

Freezer-Prep Breakfast Burritos

Freezer-Prep Breakfast Burritos

Servings: 8-10

For the scramble:
1 tablespoon oil
5 cloves garlic, minced
14 ounces tofu, broken up
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoons red pepper flakes
¼ cup nutritional yeast
¼ cup vegetable stock
Hot sauce, optional

Burritos
Tortillas
Onions, diced and cooked, optional
Spinach, cooked, optional
Tomatoes, sliced and cooked, optional
Black beans, optional
Peppers, chopped and cooked, optional
Mushrooms, chopped and cooked, optional
Plant-based meat alternatives, cooked, optional
Pinto beans, optional
Potatoes, chopped and cooked, optional
Sweet potatoes, chopped and cooked, optional
Corn, optional

1. In a medium pan, add oil and garlic and cook until garlic is lightly browned. Add tofu by pulling pieces off to produce the full “scramble” effect.
2. Add the turmeric, paprika, red pepper flakes, and nutritional yeast and stir to combine.
3. Add the vegetable stock and cook until absorbed in the tofu.
4. Drizzle with hot sauce if you desire.
5. Spoon some of the scramble in the center of a tortilla and add any fillings you would like. Leave plenty of room on the ends otherwise food will spill out once it's folded up. Fold the left and right sides of the tortilla in toward the center, then roll the bottom (the end nearest you) up towards the top.
6. Dampen a paper towel and wrap it around the burrito, mimicking the fold of the burrito itself. Do the same with parchment paper.
7. Place your burritos in a plastic bag and freeze until breakfast (safe up to 1 month).
8. When you are ready to eat, take one of the burritos out, remove parchment paper and microwave burrito (still in paper towel) in the microwave for 3 minutes.
9. Allow to cool for 1 minute.
10. Enjoy!

Here’s How to Decide Who Should Pay on a First Date

June 28, 2017 Billy 0

Boy meets girl, boy asks girl out, boy pays. It’s a well known narrative.

However, this narrative that was once seen as chivalrous and gentlemanly is now seen as patronising and out of date. Today, gender norms and traditional dynamics, such as the idea that the man should pay, are facing constant challenges.

To suggest that the man should always pay is also alienating. What if there are two men on the date? Or two women? Or two people who don’t identify as either gender? The rules we are taught to play by stop becoming applicable when the norms change.

In a world where women are slowly cracking the glass ceiling, to suggest that the man has to pay also implies that he is the higher earner of the two. But sadly, to an extent, this is accurate.

The pay gap between the genders remains staggering. Women still earn a significantly lower amount than men over the course of their careers, often for the same job. The Fawcett Society say that the current gap for full time workers is 13.9 per cent. The cultural presumption that women earn less than men or ought to, can be fuelled by small things. Like who pays on the first date.

So, here’s how to decide who pays without patronising or being patronised.

Steamroller Without A Driver Rolls Down The Road

If there’s one thing every driver should learn of any vehicle then that is to never leave your keys on the vehicle, especially on sloppy roads.

Watch this worker sprint as fast as he can to catch his steamroller which is rolling down the road. The roller eventually fell down on a road turning causing the worker to wonder what he did wrong.

8 Harry Potter Fan Theories That Will Change Your Life Forever

June 27, 2017 Billy 0

It is 20 years since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone was first released for public consumption.

Since that heady, momentous day, the series has gone on to dominate popular culture in hitherto unprecedented fashion. J.K. Rowling released seven truly astonishing books that managed to capture the imagination of children and adults alike, whipping them up into an effervescent, coruscating glow that still shows no signs of abating all these years later.

Rowling’s books have transcended the boundaries of genre and form to become almost universally adored, and though Harry’s story has come to an end, it is a glowing testament to the book’s enduring appeal that the wizarding world remains as fiercely discussed, dissected and coveted 20 years after its conception.

While Rowling covered an astonishing amount of ground in her seven Potter books, there are, inevitably, some stones that were left relatively unturned by the wordsmith. In that sense, she is a victim of her own success; so voracious is our appetite for extra nuggets of information, so vivid is the picture of our minds’ eye, that there can never be too much Potter for fans to digest.

This endless pursuit of new intricacies has culminated in a dizzying array of fan theories that attempt to explain or add colour to the Potter series, and while some are a little far-fetched, others are works of pure Potter genius. In no particular order, here are some of the very best.

1. Harry Potter and the reason Neville Longbottom struggled with magic

Neville Longbottom was a notoriously lumpen wizard in his younger and more vulnerable years, prone to hapless blunders and embarrassing acts of self implosion that rendered the cumbersome youth a consistent laughing stock in the storied corridors of Hogwarts. Much of his struggles were blamed by his teachers on his quivering personality and complete lack of self confidence, but what if there was another reason for Longbottom’s magical misfortune?

Any Potter fan worth their salt will know that the wand chooses the wizard, but Neville just so happened to choose his own wand himself, adopting his father, Frank Longbottom’s wand. The theory is given weight by the upward trajectory of Neville’s magical prowess following his procurement of a new wand after Dolohov broke his father’s during the battle at the Department of Mysteries. Neville continues to confound us all.

2. Harry Potter and the Horcrux that made the Dursleys hate him

A rather neat theory expounds that Harry’s own status as the Horcrux Voldemort never intended to make could explain the Dursley’s awful treatment of him as a child.

We know, of course, that being in possession of a Horcrux for any period of time profoundly effects the mood of those carrying it; see Ron’s frequent temper tantrums whilst carrying the locket as evidence for this. Could this be the reason for the Dursley’s frankly horrendous treatment of Harry, then? Placed in a never ending bad mood by Harry the Horcrux?

Of course, there is the less romantic notion that Petunia – and by osmosis, Vernon – fiercely resent magic and all of its trappings due to her intense jealousy of her sister, Lily, and her magical talents. That they passed such jaundice onto their son is explanation for Dudley’s many shortcomings.

3. Harry Potter and the Boy Who Lived Forever

In the wake of dreadful loss, destruction and pain, Harry emerges a family man, who is to all intents and purposes the recipient of a keenly deserved happy ending. That’s one reading of the denouement of the Potter series, anyway.

Another is an altogether more wretched affair, and it is based on the words of Sybil Trelawney’s famous prophecy, “Neither can live while the other survives”. While rationalised in the books as a mechanism by which Harry must kill, or be killed, by Lord Voldemort, another reading would suggest that Harry, in vanquishing the one he must die at the hands of, has achieved immortality.

While at face value this might not seem so regrettable an inference, when one considers the implications; that Harry would never be reunited with his parents in death, this is perhaps the most tragic denouement imaginable for the Boy Who Lived.

4. Harry Potter and the Half-Kneazle Cat

Crookshanks. The flat faced, ill-tempered feline companion of Hermione Granger, who delighted and disarmed (almost literally) all at Hogwarts.

The object of Ron’s loathing, largely due to his relentless pursuit of Scabbers, Crookshanks is much more than a common garden cat, one theory would have you believe. In fact, Crookshanks is theorised as being half Kneazle; a highly intelligent, magical breed of cat. Somewhat excitingly, this theory has been legitimised by Rowling herself, who confirmed that Crookshanks was indeed half Kneaze on her website. This must account for the cat’s sixth sense regarding Peter Pettigrew; rendered in obscuro as Scabbers. Good for you, Crookshanks.

5. Harry Potter and the Centaurs Who Knew the Ending

A fascinating theory, one Quora user pontificates that the Centaurs of the Forbidden Forest might have known Harry’s fate from the very beginning. During Potter’s first meeting with Firenze – who rescues him in the Forbidden Forest, following a death-defying encounter with Lord Voldemort in his rudimentary ghostly form – the Centaur is chastised by his fellow kind for interfering in Harry’s fate.

Of course, Harry eventually met his maker – albeit briefly – when Lord Voldemort cursed him in the Deathly Hallows book, so perhaps it was written in the stars that he would meet with deathly consequences. If so, it would appear that the Centaurs knew, right from the start.
