Predicting the future is not worth it because eventually you get proved wrong. I’m going to download the new Blade Runner film, “Blade Runner 2049”. I can’t remember much about the original film, so I decided to watch it again before I watch the new one. What a disappointment it is. I suppose when it […]

Why do simple devices confuse intelligent people? The main office at BOBfm is kept warm by one large electric heater but nobody knows how to use it. It has two simple controls, a thermostat numbered 1 to 6 and a power knob marked, “MIN”, “MED” and “MAX”. You control the room temperature with the thermostat […]


Bad news if you’ve ever fancied riding a bike naked through Britain. The British government has announced it wants to put driverless cars on our roads by 2021. About 100 cyclists are killed on the roads in Great Britain every year and more than 3,000 are seriously injured. When all cars are driverless, no cyclists […]

If you say Jesus backwards, it sounds like “sausage” but that doesn’t mean you can depict the saviour as one in a nativity scene. Greggs the Bakers have apologised after replacing baby Jesus with a sausage roll in a Nativity scene, to promote their advent calendar. A right wing pressure group called the Freedom Association […]


Firework Dismay

02Nov17

Why is it legal to buy explosives in Britain? On November 5th, we celebrate “Bonfire Night”. Every year, around 1,000 people visit hospitals for treatment of firework-related injuries. Half of the injuries are to under-18s. Since 1996, four people have been killed in firework accidents in the UK. I lived in Australia for almost seven […]

Politicians LOVE pollution and they’ve got really good at turning it into revenue. They’re called “green” taxes even though the money they raise isn’t spent on making the environment any cleaner. If you drive into the centre of London you have to pay a “congestion charge” of £11.50 a day. All vehicles that put out […]

Britain’s budget shop, ‘Poundland’ has been hit with a backlash because it sells Peanut M&M knock-offs called ‘Nutters’. The packets have three peanut-shaped cross-eyed cartoon characters on them with their mouths wide open. Mental health campaigners say that they are “offensive” and have called for Poundland to stop selling them. We live in a strange […]


Apple are starting to confuse me now. The new iPhone is out, actually there are two new ones. The iPhone 8 replaces the iPhone 7. They’ve also released the iPhone 10 (X). They’ve skipped 9 completely. Each new Apple phone has more features than the last but they’re also taking things away. The iPhone 7, […]


No Panda Pop

Edinburgh Zoo has announced that their female giant panda will NOT give birth to cubs this year. Just before the last public holiday of the year, the zoo announced that Tian Tian might be expecting, which reminded us that the zoo still has pandas and might be worth a visit. It is the sixth time […]


Do you brush your teeth in the shower? A major debate has broken out on Twitter. Some people say it’s the way to go but others say it’s just plain weird. I brush my teeth in the shower because I have a shower rather than a bath. And peeing in the bath is disgusting. Craic […]

The British can’t handle their drink. They get drunk any chance they can and even brag about it. They drink the most, when they’re on holiday. The first chance they get is at the airport. When I catch a flight early in the morning, I’m amazed at how packed the bar is. About 270m passengers […]


British taxpayers have lost millions because of a gigantic fortune telling scam. And we’re set to lose even more money because, despite overwhelming evidence, people still refuse to accept that they’re being ripped off. A group of con artists are running a racket that costs the British taxpayer £170 million a year. It employs 1,500 staff […]
