floatation tanks: definitely not for relaxation

floatation tanks: definitely not for relaxation

These weird space-age sarcophagus' are overlooked as a therapy tool because the sessions are more easily marketed as an ‘experience’ or to ease muscle pains. Sure, it ticks those boxes, too… But it’s not the tank’s main selling point. Done properly, a floatation tank can take you on a psychedelic journey akin to intense meditation or drugs (allegedly). Yep, it gets real trippy.

A.I - From solving Google’s ‘100 Hat riddle’ to World domination

In 2014, Google purchased the British Artificial Intelligence start-up, DeepMind, for a massive £400 Million. Shortly after the acquisition Deepmind's founder, Demis Hassabis, took some time away from being a newly crowned super-millionaire to unveil his two step plan for the company...

Neil Woods: A ‘Traitor’ To The War On Drugs

He posed as a heroin user and used other addicts to make his connections with dealers. He estimates his arrests account for over 1000 years of prison time. He was on the front line of the ‘war’...and he’s not proud of any of it.

I’ve been around for the best 30 years of TV, and I’ve watched a lot of it. So for arguments sake - let’s just call me an expert?

LIFE TIPS #4 'Halloween'

LIFE TIPS #4 'Halloween'

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Halloween is every Christian's nightmare, which makes it a Satanist's dream. We just like the colour orange.

Watch us (Jay and I) carve beautiful Jack-o-lanterns so that you can copy and make your own. Not at the same time though, do be careful with knives. And flames. And also, pumpkins are pretty heavy if you drop them on a toe.

Arachnid-Dude - Directed by Jacob Shelton

For most of the last decade, every snotty, cardigan-wearing lump with a more than three Blu-Rays (note to editor: please update this reference if a new form of physical media is created between now and when/if the article is posted) from the Criterion Collection has cried foul over the increased abundance of super hero films, their sequels, and films that aren’t quite super hero films or their sequels but feel as if they could use at least one iron man.

People Are Sharing This Story Of A Millennial Who Got Rid Of His Smartphone And  Replaced It With A Big Knife.

Like most millennials, I’m absolutely obsessed with my phone. Not a minute goes by that I don’t pick it up and use it, either to send a WhatsApp message, catch up with the latest trends, or check my work emails. Recently I’ve realised just how much of the day I spend staring at screens. It’s crazy! So for one week I turned my handset off, and replaced it with a big knife. This is what happened.

I’m white, I fly from London City airport but I’m not a racist

I’m white, I fly from London City airport but I’m not a racist

When I initially saw the headline that seven ‘Black Lives Matters’ protesters had blockaded London City Airport in protest, it took me a moment to join the dots. Were the airport staff racially profiling passengers or the management showing bias in recruitment? The actual reason for the blockade requires some mental backflips, so limber up now.

4 Things That Will REALLY Break The Internet In 2017

4 Things That Will REALLY Break The Internet In 2017

There’s a lot of hoo-ha about various things ‘breaking the internet’ over the last year. Be it Kim Kardashian's shelf-bum, Justin Bieber falling down a trapdoor or nonchalantly wandering around with his dick out on holiday.  Well, I’ve had just about enough of it! The term ‘breaking the internet’ has lost any true meaning. What happens when the internet actually breaks? MSN Messenger (God rest it's soul) is proof that all great things eventually can, and will, come to an end.

A Ballbag Maketh Testosterone But Testosterone Doesn’t Maketh A Ballbag.

A Ballbag Maketh Testosterone But Testosterone Doesn’t Maketh A Ballbag.

Testosterone has quite a bad reputation. Mostly due to its brazen association to thuggish, sexualy aggressive and ‘white van’ type behaviour in men. Yes, it is created in the testicals. Yes, it is what makes a man ‘manly’. Yes it can enhance aggressive reflexes, and YES it can be partially blamed for some of my gender sending unwanted dick pics on instagram / getting their penis out at any opportunity in real life. BUT we must remember...

Glorifying a Murderer or Learning Something New: I took my Mum to the Ripper Museum.

Glorifying a Murderer or Learning Something New: I took my Mum to the Ripper Museum.

The Jack The Ripper Museum opened in August 2015 with a desire to provide “a serious examination of the crimes of Jack the Ripper within the social context of the period”- Sounds fair. I’d even go as far as to say that sounds quite interesting. What's more, it claims to have “one of the rarest Ripperologists collections of recent times”. I didn’t know Ripperologism was a thing, but I’m sold. What’s not to like?

Why You Should Go See Ghostbusters ASAP

Representation in media is incredibly important when it comes to gender equality and how we view our fellow humans. However, less than 20% of films released this year will be directed by, written by or star a woman in the principal role. One of the easiest ways that we as consumers can influence media makers is with our money
