Sorry, no listings were found.
Believe the hype: today is officially the most depressing day of the year…
Well, not really – but there’s no denying January can be particularly miserable.
Whether it’s getting dumped (welcome to break-up season), giving up the diet, the dark and freezing weather, having no money… Sorry, we didn’t mean to make you feel even worse.
Anyway, we’ve rounded up some emergency pictures to cheer everyone up, along with some helpful life advice.
1. Get involved
Find something or someone you love, and don’t be afraid to show it. Others might not always understand – but you… Read the full story

Last week Canadian police appealed for information regarding ‘Middle Eastern’ looking men seen taking pictures at a Vancouver shopping mall.
People were concerned they might be scoping out the building for a terrorist attack – but now the men have come forward, and they turned out to be Brits visiting the country for eye surgery.
CCTV stills leaked to the media showed the three, snapping away with mobile phone cameras.

A man who confronted teenagers throwing snowballs at cars and lampposts was punched in the face.
The man, who told the boys they could cause an accident, needed hospital treatment after they piled in and assaulted him as a group at around 1pm yesterday on Collyweston Road in Northampton.
This morning Northamptonshire Police launched an appeal for information about the gang of boys, all said to be white and around 15 years old.
Officers said one was around six feet tall, of a normal build with short shaved, light fair hair and a small amount of facial hair around his chin. He wore a dark coloured coat.
The other three were slightly smaller.

Scots have long suspected it, but now they have extra proof that living north of the wall is better.
Average workers in Scotland now earn more than their English counterparts for the ‘first time ever’, earning a typical £11.92 an hour, compared with £11.84 across England.
Think tank the Resolution Foundation (not biased, as it’s based in London) is about to release a report called ‘The State of Working Scotland’ – and it looks like Scots have more reason to celebrate than just having certain cool words English people don’t… Read the full story

Late one night, a musician heard his violin start to play all by itself.
As he lay in the dark, he summoned the courage to get up and see what was making the ‘soft sound, certainly audible and unmistakeable’ as his violin strings, wondering if it could be a ghostly spirit or a poltergeist moving the strings.
Picking up his camera, he moved quickly to snap a photograph of the instrument, hoping to capture any creature or apparition on film.
This is the Thing he discovered…
Yesterday Jeremy Corbyn appeared to discuss the possibility of back channel talks with Daesh, arguing that the government previously had talks with the IRA and the Taliban.
We have to think about the terror group’s strong points and weak points in order to ‘challenge its ideology,’ Corbyn said on the Andrew Marr show.
So people on Twitter decided to help him out with some battlefield analysis.
Here are some of the ‘strong points’ they singled out…

A woman who lost her arm in a crocodile attack tried to turn down a lift from a Good Samaritan because she didn’t want to get blood in his car.
Yesterday we reported how a human hand and arm were found in the croc’s stomach after it tried to eat Karen Prior in Western Australia.
Now more details have emerged about the moments after 68-year-old Karen, from Wyndham, escaped the 3 metre beast.
After her forearm came away in its mouth, she stumbled back to the road missing her limb just above the elbow last Wednesday.
She was found by the roadside but… Read the full story

People who consider assisted suicide may not be too worried about standard methods being too ‘boring’.
But for those who are, designer Julijonas Urbona has come up with a solution.
Instead of drifting away as peacefully as possible at a clinic in Switzerland, you could blast yourself into oblivion riding this ‘euthanasia rollercoaster’, which aims to deliver a lethal dose of G-Force.
Julijonas claims that his design would allow people to end their lives with ‘euphoria and pleasure’.

What in blazes is this abomination?
It looks like an experiment circa Year 10 Double Science, but apparently this is what all the cool kids are drinking these days. We’re not exactly sure how it works but it looks like a shot of coffee you mix with the hot water yourself.
Come on baristas, that’s your job.
Apparently the word for this is ‘deconstructed’, but we’re not quite cool enough to get the point. And it’s not just us: someone on Twitter suggested they should ‘deconstruct the bill by leaving the correct money… Read the full story
