Sometimes “Capitol Hill” sounds for our russian ears like “Capital Hell”. Yeah.— Pussy Riot (@pussyrrriot) May 6, 2014

Robins, and other birds that travel north and south with seasons, use the Earth’s magnetic field to figure out where they’re going, and it turns out that blasting the atmosphere with BREAKING NEWS and LIVE SPORT and MARK KERMODE is slightly confusing for them.
Researchers from the University of Oldenburg have just published a report in Nature about how they figured this out by putting birds in cabins - even stuck indoors, birds will ‘migrate’ by jumping in the appropriate direction.
Except that the birds initially didn’t aim in anything like the right direction. However, when the cabins were shielded from Richard Bacon and Victoria Derbyshire, they immediately locked onto where they were meant to go.
There’s something in this.
They’re like two frames of the same wonderful GIF.
This has had the unfortunate effect of making us like Jeremy Hunt a little bit more - he seems like he’d make a fun pantomimesque comedy villain, if he wasn’t too busy shutting down actual hospitals.
BTW, we really enjoy Rev., which is surprisingly good for a gentle but ever-darkening sitcom about a vicar having a breakdown - a genre it pretty much only shares with The Vicar of Dibley.

Fans cheered wildly, danced in the aisles and even their seats last night to give Led Zeppelin one of the most fantastic receptions ever witnessed at Birmingham Town Hall.

There’s long been debate whether it’s acceptable to call a casserole with a pastry lid a pie - and now there’s a petition on the government’s e-petition website to ban the practice entirely.
For too long customers in pubs and restaurants have ordered what is described on the menu as a pie only to be served with casserole in a pot covered by a puff pastry lid. This is not a pie and is also curiously difficult to consume. A pie is defined by the OED as “A baked dish of fruit, or meat and vegetables, typically with a top and base of pastry.” This petition urges the implementation of criminal sanctions upon the owners of food outlets that serve items described as pies without a pastry base. Exemptions will apply for Shepherds, Cottage and Fish Pies.
Until then, let us know what you think in our PIE POLL, below.
