A Rare Look Inside Scientology’s Top Secret 500-Acre Compound

September 23, 2016 Billy 0

Scientology is one of the most secretive religions on the planet, despite counting high profile names such as Tom Cruise, Elizabeth Moss, and John Travolta among its followers. In fact, it’s so secretive, that some consider it a cult rather than a religion.

So when anonymous drone footage revealing one of the religion’s most secretive locations was released recently, you can bet the world sat up and took notice. The footage was shot inside Gold Base HQ, which is considered to be the control centre of the religion.

The international management headquarters in California houses the studios of Golden Era Productions, from which the church makes its promotional films.

The shots were sent to Tom DeVocht, who worked at the base for many years, leaving in 2005. He was shunned from the religion by its leader David Miscavige after he refused to lock members up in some of the buildings featured in the drone footage.  So if you’re ready to see one of the most secretive estate in the world, simply head on over to the next page.

These Tips For Women From 1938 Are Gloriously Cringeworthy

September 23, 2016 Billy 0

Dating in the modern world is a difficult task. There are a wild variety of dating apps out there, beaming millions of potential mates to our phones 24/7. But despite the seemingly endless stream of matches, it’s almost impossible to find anyone even vaguely compatible. By compatible, I mean someone who doesn’t turn up to your date with a guitar on his back telling you he’s wearing the t-shirt of a Tinder date whose house he stayed over at last night. I’m not kidding.

Considering the truly terrible state of modern dating, it can be tempting to look back to decades past in order to understand where it all went wrong. However, as the following collection of dating tips from 1938 prove, it looks like the quest for love has always been terrible. For women, that is.

Scans from a 1938 dating manual come complete with photographic illustrations and handy tips for women, such as: “Don’t sit in awkward positions – and never look bored, even if you are.”

Another page of the 1938 dating manual tells women that you should never smudge their handkerchiefs with lipstick, adding: “Makeup in privacy, not where he sees you.” Charming.

Looks like the 1938 dating scene was possibly even worse than today’s terrible Tinder dates. For more proof of this depressing fact, simply head on over to the next page.

Despite dying over three decades ago, Elvis Presley is still one of the most widely impersonated men on the planet. His unique voice, dazzling good looks, and exaggerated dress sense is often imitated, but never duplicated.

It’s nice to see Monica still has that competitive edge.

Lisa appeared on a recent episode of the show and Courteney is an executive producer.

The Czech Republic Has Finally Got Round To Changing Its Name

September 23, 2016 Billy 0

People of a certain generation still haven’t stopped referring to the Czech Republic as Czechoslovakia, so I imagine this will be a ginormous headf**k for them. Yes, those lovely Czechs have changed the name of their country again (if only to keep us on our toes). Apparently the decision to change the country’s name was made back in April, but this is the first I’m hearing of it.

According to the Czech government, English speakers now have a new name for their favourite stag-do destination. No longer will we be able to dash over to the Czech Republic, and pop into Prague for a lap dance, as the place no longer exists.

So why the change? Well, since the split of the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic in 1993, the state title of the country has been Česká republika (which translates to the Czech Republic). But it seems that Czechs forgot to sort one important detail. A document from gov.uk states: “No English-language short form name, as a simpler counterpart to the official country name, was ever officially standardised.”

So what are we supposed to call them now? Flick over to the next page to reveal the next place you’ll be booking that boy’s holiday.

Mila Kunis And Natalie Dormer Reveal What It’s Really Like Shooting Sex Scenes

September 23, 2016 Billy 0

Being an actor or actress must be great. You essentially get to play pretend for a living, get paid way more than the average wage, and work with some of the most beautiful people on the planet. You even get your own page on IMDb.

That being said, there are also some serious downsides to acting for a living. Specifically, that you sometimes have to writhe around in a bed with a stranger whilst your genitals are covered with a piece of material. And no, I’m not talking about the office Christmas party: I’m talking about sex scenes.

As it turns out, acting in sex scenes is possibly one of the most awkward experiences an actor can endure. Over the years, more than one thespian has described the experience, and if I’m honest, it doesn’t sound like a barrel of laughs. Head over to the next page to hear from sex scene veterans Mila Kunis and Natalie Dormer.

Stephen Hawking Gives Stark Warning About Aliens And We Should All Be Listening

September 23, 2016 Billy 0

If you often catch yourself looking up at the sky and wondering whether an alien might visit in your lifetime, you’re not alone. For many scientists, the question isn’t the stuff of science fiction, but a serious concern.

There are tens of billions of planets that have the capacity for life in the Milky Way alone, 11 billion of which are orbiting sun-like stars. So the question is: where the hell are all the aliens?

where-are-all-the-aliens-1

Scientists are finally starting to get round to answering that question, thanks to a recent discovery. Back in August, scientists announced the discovery of one of these potentially habitable planets. Proxima b is a relatively nearby planet which has the perfect set of conditions to harbour life, and it’s close enough that we could potentially reach it in our lifetime.

Following this discovery, prominent physicist and bonafide genius Steven Hawking has spoken out about what he thinks humanity should do in the event of an alien invasion. Head over to the next page to see what he said.
