Week 26, aka. Last Week Until July

We're yet to know just how bad the situation in Nepal is, but safe to say it's far worse than we think it is. With focus seemingly solely on Katmandu, you can't help but wonder how things must be outside of the capital. It's just awful. We can but hold our breath for more moments like this 4 month-old baby being found alive, 22 hours after the building he was in collapsed (or this 15 year-old boy being found 5 days after).

So this is the last week of internet before I, together with wife and our almost 5 month-old boy, head off to Thailand for two months. It's been a very busy week, with unexpected news (of the good kind), and very little time to prepare. It's a bank holiday here tomorrow - thankfully - so I'll be rushing around trying to pack and clean the flat before heading off on Saturday. We've got people staying in our flat for the entire time, which is comforting. I just hope they water my bay leaf tree which has finally started growing. 

Anywho, look at this stadium being turned from a basketball court to an ice-hockey rink. It's pretty neat, as they say over there. 

If you follow me on Instagram you'll know I like beer. IPAs in particular. Here's a handy beer chart to address all your beer questions (get a HUGE version here).

Yes, that's the joke is a great tumblr unwittingly made up by people who don't get the joke. 

You might have heard all the furore surrounding Protein World's 'beach body ready' poster. Carslberg are rather good at newsjacking, and really nailed it this time. 

LEGO fan? Good. You'll like this then. 

I love old stuff. Like my dad (hello, dad). If you like old stuff, old film about London in particular, you'll like this. 

Here's a nice thing to end on. Sorry things are a bit rushed this week, but times are busy. If you're vaguely interested in our travels, head to Jaw to keep an eye on how we're managing. Adios!

Internet Numero 13

This week's biggest event was projectile vomiting. It's hard to believe a baby can hold so much in its tiny body until you witness, first hand, semi-digested milk gracefully arch over a shoulder and on to the floor. You can't even be angry. It's just so impressive. 

Speaking of impressive, can you believe you can actually buy Marmite and Pot Noodle flavoured Easter eggs? Actually, that's more disgusting, but in an impressive way. Anyway, on to this week's handpicked internet fun, none of which will really make a difference, but that's the internet for you. You can start by learning how to tie knots. I had to tie one recently (a double Fisherman's Knot - not featured here), and had to use a YouTube video to do it. Anyway, here you go. 

Extra info: a knot in Danish is 'knob'. I might be 36, but I still giggle when I see it. In fact, a friend posted a picture of a Danish book he found called '25 Knobs'. That was funny.

Feel left out of the hipster crowd? Well here you can create your own hipster logo, because who doesn't want one?

I love these musicless music videos, and Fight for your Right was begging for it. 

This week marked the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. I can highly recommend the C4 documentary, Night Will Fall, "The extraordinary story of the Allied forces who filmed the terrible scenes in the Nazi concentration camps, and Sidney Bernstein's attempt to produce a landmark documentary record of what they found." It feature never seen before footage from the Soviet and British troops as they found not only Auschwitz, but other camps too. It's absolutely awful, and should be seen by everyone.

You should also check out this drone footage from the BBC. I've aways wanted to go to Auschwitz, and in fact was meant to go but then this whole baby thing came along so the trip is delayed. I will go. Maybe next year. 

On a much lighter note, here's a periodic table of beer (click for a bigger image). 

Last, but not least, make your own monster thanks to Ed Harrington. 

Oh wait, I forgot something about space. Here you go!

OK, there is one more thing... Stephen Fry on God. Marvellous. 

Have a smashing weekend.
