FFS. The size of your hand luggage has just shrunk

June 11, 2015 admin No comments

FFS. The size of your hand luggage has just shrunk Chuck out that spanking new Luis Vuitton (okay fake) bag you got for your holiday – it’s now probably way too big. The size of hand luggage is expected to shrink from 56cm by 45cm by 25cm (ish) to a minuscule 55cm by 35cm by 20cm. On the plus side, this will hopefully eliminate the variety of different size allowances on different airlines. At the moment Easyjet and British Airways allow 56cm by 45cm by 25cm while Virgin Atlantic only allow 56cm by 36cm by 23cm. Ryanair meanwhile only allows 55cm by 40cm by 20cm. Read more →

US men’s soccer team: USA fans think they’re going to win World Cup 2018 after Germany victory USA downed Germany (Picture: Getty) A little bit of success can go to anybody’s head – but it’s pretty ridiculous in the case of the USA national team. After friendly wins over Holland last week and then Germany, US fans are convinced they are now serious contenders for the World Cup in 2018. Yep, really. Bobby Wood, who plays for a team just relegated from the German second division, scored a winner against Germany, and soon sent Twitter crazy with the prospect that USA might actually be really good. There was some sarcasm… CORRECTION: USA WON THE WORLD CUP pic.twitter.com/sAoJZH3M61 […] Read more →

‘Exploding spiders’ are being found all across Britain

‘Exploding spiders’ are being found all across Britain Not horrifying at all (Picture: ITN) That’s right, we have exploding spiders now – cue the nightmares. These tiny yellow spiders have been seen all over Britain recently, and while they look small and harmless, they do have one particularly alarming feature. Clustering together in groups of about 100 when they are born, the yellow garden spiders spin a very thin web around themselves. However if anything touches this web, it breaks, spilling forth an unholy tide of creepy crawlies. Breaking their web has been likened to an ‘explosion’ of spiders.

Louise has Down’s Syndrome and, since she was born, Caroline has been shocked by the number of insensitive comments she’s received. Earlier this week, the journalist and mum-of-two decided to list all the inappropriate things people say on her Facebook page, in a bid to make them think before they speak. Because, as she says, ‘words are important’. Caroline begins by saying: ‘Here is my baby girl, Louise. She is 4 months old, has two legs […] Read more →
