Disney infinity 3 makers have a great sense of humour! That's not Jan solo in carbonite, they put jar jar in it!

Well done Kenzie for finding it in Jabba's palace

Insufficient Evidence to Link Violent Video Games to Violent Crimes

Violent video game play is linked to increased aggression in players but insufficient evidence exists about whether the link extends to criminal violence or delinquency, according to a new American Psychological Association task force report.

#psychology   #violence   #videogames  
A new report looks at the relationship between aggressive behavior, violent crimes and video games.

Were the other 200 studies coming to this same conclusion not enough?

As an international traveller making a fair few flights outside Europe in the last year or so, I've been very disappointed in the "duty free" shops in airports, even to the point of asking the stores why the prices of things are exactly the same on both sides of passport control.

They just didn't have an answer for me and could only shrug their shoulders.

I can't understand how this brazen abuse of their customers is allowed by the airports

It's price gouging of the absolute worst kind
 
They're all at it! Even Boots wants to avoid paying tax as far as it can. From now on, I'm refusing to show my boarding card. I'd rather not have the goods. 
Some of Britain’s top retailers are facing calls to be more honest with airport customers as they pocket millions of pounds in VAT discounts on duty free items without passing on the savings.

Literally faultless centre! Staff knowledge and passionate about the owls and monkeys transferred here for their care. Large variety of animals (which we got to see during a feeding time) are all in huge spaces and very well cared for. Children's activity area, play areas and beautiful grounds make this amazing place even better, and to top it all off the dining area is packed with choice and spotlessly clean. Quite why it isn't packed 24/7 is beyond me!

It's awesome on a lazy afternoon so I can imagine cocktails in the evening is just as relaxed and laid back. Try the crepes!

Great staff make up a standard selection of beers. Foods good, and they get all the big matches on multiple screens. When Tottenham plays at home, there's always a good crowd there... Friendly, often quiet, and decent for the area.
