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 →

The world is split into two types of people – those who live by the clock (the boring ones) and those of us who are always, chronically late (the cool kids, obvs). Being late is not something people tend to have a lot of sympathy for, but as tardy types have been saying for years, it’s not our fault. And now, thanks to some very clever people at New York University, we finally have proof that we simply can’t help being late. Yes, apparently some people are just ‘born to be late’, and have a personality type that means they find […] Read more →
The student was expelled in 2013 (Picture: Getty) An student is suing his university for a ‘miscarriage of justice’ after he was expelled following the verdict of a rape case. The 22-year-old man, who goes by the pseudonym John Doe, was kicked out of Amherst College in Massachusetts, US, after the disciplinary board had concluded that he forced a female student to perform oral sex on him in February 2012. Doe has always maintained that he had in fact blacked out after drinking heavily and received the sex act without any knowledge of it. Two years later, he was accused of sexual assault […] Read more →
