Is this what goes on on top of the clouds when we’re not around? Cloud giants wandering around, bold as brass?
This chilling scenario could actually be true, after an Easyjet passenger captured a cloud man ambling along while on a flight from Austria to Gatwick.
Even more scarily, the creature resembles the Stay-Puft marshmallow man which wreaks havoc in New York at the end of Ghostbusters.
O Donoghue says, ‘I was flying back from a work ski trip in Austria, I was on the window seat with two work colleges beside me.
‘They were talking like crazy and I was gazing out the window, as you do. I… Read the full story

Forget Dry January, people are trying to quit something much harder than booze this January – Facebook.
The 99 Days project has seen its number of quitters triple this month – and its founder says that most people feel ‘happier’ after doing so.
Around a quarter of people who manage to quit Facebook for the full 99 days also quit for good, according to Merijn Straathof (the man behind 99 Days).
Data from the project will be used in university research projects at Leiden University and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam to work out why some people find Facebook so addictive – and what happens when you quit.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Straathof says, ‘We’re not saying everyone should. But for us the idea of not using Facebook was a very… Read the full story

You might not even have noticed, but you’ve been paying a subscription for Whatsapp – $1, or 69p a year.
But the company has just dropped the fee, meaning WhatsApp is completely free from here on in.
Better still, the fee ISN’T going to be replaced with annoying ads, its chief has promised.
Speaking at a conference in Germany, WhatsApp chief Jan Koum said the annual fee would be scrapped immediately, and the service would become completely free to all users.
Previously the app had been free for the first year before users were asked to pay for every subsequent year.
Mr Koum instead saying the app will focus on making… Read the full story

Getting to Mars and actually surviving there is really, really difficult – just ask Matt Damon’s character in The Martian.
And a new report by the US Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel (ASAP) suggests that NASA’s being a touch over-optimistic when it comes to when we’ll get there.
A NASA report last year suggested we might get to the Red Planet by the 2030s – but it’s too risky and the technology isn’t well-enough researched, ASAP suggests.
ASAP wrote, ‘Unfortunately, the level of detail in the report … does not really validate whether NASA would be capable of achieving such an ambitious objective in a reasonable time period, with realistically attainable technologies, and with budgetary requirements that are consistent with the current economic environment.
‘Although the document does identify a few specific technologies that will be needed to accomplish the overall mission, including Solar Electric Propulsion and a Deep Space Habitat, it lacks a top-level architecture… Read the full story

David Cameron has renewed his calls for people to use the term ‘Daesh’ instead of Islamic State – saying that Muslims in Britain would ‘hold their heads in despair’.
Cameron criticised the BBC for using the term ‘Islamic State’ after he appeared on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.
He said, ”Muslim families around the country would have held their heads in despair this morning when once again you just called it Islamic State, you didn’t even say “so-called Islamic State”.
‘It is so important, this.’
Late last year, Downing Street announced that David… Read the full story

They say that Jesus saves – but we didn’t expect his followers to be THIS tight-fisted.
A waiter in an American burger joint turned over what looked like a $20 cash tip from a Christian diner – and found it was a Bible pamphlet.
If THAT doesn’t turn you to worshipping our infernal master, Satan, nothing will.
The pamphlet said, ‘Don’t be fooled. There is something you can have more valuable than money!’
Garrett Wayman, 17, said, ‘I was just taken aback because I don’t know if you’ve… Read the full story

Apple likes clever people – so much so that the interview process to get into the tech giant is notoriously brutal, with questions designed to confuse, terrify and reduce people to despair.
Imagine being interrogated by the KGB… then turn up the difficulty a couple of notches.
Thankfully, recruitment site Glassdoor has been compiling some of the most eye-watering questions which real candidates have faced in Apple interviews.
Do YOU think you could survive?
1) If you have 2 eggs, and you want to figure out what’s the highest floor from which you can drop the egg without breaking it, how would you do it? What’s the optimal solution?
2) You put a glass of water on a record turntable and begin slowly increasing the speed. What happens first – does the glass… Read the full story

The world’s 62 richest people own as much money as the poorest half of the globe put together, figures show.
Their combined wealth is £1.22trillion, according to charity Oxfam – rising £350billion in five years.
Then, the wealth of the world’s poorest half was equal to the 388 richest individuals.
The report comes as financial and political elites gather for the World Economic Forum summit in Davos.
Oxfam called the findings ‘unacceptable’. Delegates must crack down on tax havens and boost minimum wages, it said.

Top tennis players are being paid more than £30,000 by corrupt gambling syndicates to lose matches on purpose, it has been claimed.
‘Match fixing’ is ‘widespread’ in top-level tennis, according to an investigation – with some major players having thrown matches repeatedly.
The names of 16 players have been flagged repeatedly to the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) over the last decade amid fears they have thrown matches, according to an investigation by the BBC and internet media company BuzzFeed.
The investigation suggests that the suspects include Grand Slam singles and doubles champions and the alleged rigging took place at major tournaments including Wimbledon and… Read the full story
