Rebranding wind turbines as devices to blow away foreign desert sand, coming over here hiding the English sunshine, might get Tories onside.
If we reverse the power to all the wind turbines, will that blow the smog away?
I read so many more tweets whingeing about how awful April 1st will be than I've seen actual April Fools jokes. It's been like Y2K.
I’ve made this Frankie Knuckles-inspired YouTube playlist in Spotify: As best I can, 45 tracks

“The life of a simple hacker changes when he meets the most famous film star in the world.” A Notting Hill-style movie about Shoreditch.
You’re all very kind, but I don’t *want* to make removing whitespace to be easier or more fun. I want laborious. DON’T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?

A GTA V update in which you play a faux-naive Englishman who must piece together three hours of TV without dying or viewers switching over.
The recurring surprise that there are people who read Hacker News.
Apologies to those of you for whom that is gibberish. I kind of wish it was gibberish to me too.
