Videos

Stephen Fry explains what he wishes he had known when he was 18. Kinda long, but it's Stephen Fry!

Reads

Redditors suggest music for a girl who just re-gained her hearing. Kind of the best thing ever.

The Atlantic explains how dogs get so dry so soon after a bath. Finally!

Other stuff



The best memes of the Olympics. The "McKayla is not impressed" one is a particular favourite.

The Curiosity Rover - in Lego.
