That time in the pub when you are seen to be putting some music selections in the jukebox and sit down just as Abba - Winner takes it all begins. And you get that look from those around you.

Demon Brother

"When Jasper finds his father dead, a dark mystery begins to unfold. His dad kept a secret - Jasper has a twin brother, Eddie, whom he's never met. After the funeral the two brothers decide to swap places."

This is one of those occasions where I was late for work because I could not get out of my car until this finished. BBC Afternoon Drama at its best.

He should try this approach for real - he sounds quite sophisticated.
 
Funny.  Donald Trump redone with British accent, anyone?

Peter Serafinowicz has updated George Bernard Shaw's dictum that "It is impossible for an Englishman to open his mouth without making some other Englishman hate or despise him", by re-voicing Donald Trump to demonstrate that emotional reactions to British accents are ...

The Cold Swedish Winter

A highly recommended BBC radio comedy show about a comedian living in northern Sweden and the inevitable cultural faux pas. Here, some of the cast try Surströmming while being filmed - his Swedish delicacy cannot even be opened in a residential area and is treated as a terrorist weapon by airline security.

The cast of The Cold Swedish Winter sample surströmming - fermented herring

As I see it, there is a small problem with this approach. For those that might <cough> visit less reputable football streaming sites then such tricks are par for the course. Might it not be preferable to blank out those page elements instead, rather than highlighting the whole site like this? A regular visitor might become inured to such warnings.
 
Safe Browsing becomes even stronger - no more deceptive download buttons

You may have encountered social engineering in a deceptive download button, or an image ad that falsely claims your system is out of date. Today, Google are expanding Safe Browsing protection to protect you from such deceptive embedded content, like social engineering ads.

Another step in the fight against deceptive behvaiour online!

+Jerry Heiselman Interesting point, however phishing and deceptive sites can often lead to unwanted software installation/malware I think.

I don't link out to the Verge much as their Apple-centric view can often be a bit painful. However, here one of the co-founders (and his mother) understand what Chromebooks are about.

What if buying a computer that does much less actually lets you do so much more?

I actually found myself spending hours last night answering (serious -- not related to this video) questions about how Christians actually view heaven, among other things. It's not remotely like this, if you were wondering. But this is still pretty funny.
