Dear friends, family and lurkers of G+,

Please sponsor me to be homeless on Friday night! It's going to be wet, cold and I make it extra painful by using just cardboard and a bit of plastic, sleeping on a street pavement or an empty car park. I always get a cold, it hurts like hell and trying to fend off rats at 3am who want to eat your scrap of bread that you'd been saving for breakfast is never fun.

A thousand times, yes.
Thriller The Cabin in the Woods comes out on Friday, but many are avoiding the spoiler-tastic trailer. So are Are today's teasers spoiling films?

Trailers are terrible, but even film posters can give away massive plot details - it's practically impossible to hear nothing about a film before seeing it

I'd like to coin the following phrase before someone else steals it. Forget Off-Shoring, it's all about Off-Racing!
Ayumu the research chimp can remember a set of numbers in less time than it takes a human to blink.

Sincerely hoping (but not holding my breath) for change. So long, Kim.

Dear G+'ers... I will be doing my annual charity night of sleeping rough on the streets of Birmingham this Friday night. Want to buy me a virtual hot chocolate? Please sponsor me!

Haha, I think you need a holiday and to get some proper exercise to kick the current malaise - get yourself a post-fast plan

Also, you're following 16 people, and nearly all of your followers are from Reddit who disappeared after the first month - how do you expect anyone to read your statuses!

Only because it's his Birthday, I'm posting the gift of poetry on G+ and a picture of his inevitable reaction at the use of "gladder" in the penultimate line. Happy Birthday Ronan!

A man by the surname of Sprake
In cycling affirmed to partake
Daily he will pedal
Through fast-moving metal
Survived by the infrequent BRAKE!

His choice of Lancaster seemed facile
A commute not without it's hassle
He studied in History
(Quite why is mystery)
Perhaps an excuse to tour castles?

Starting in the IT profession
His career took a slight progression
From mail server woes
To raised drop shadows
That maintain his design obsession

So now as he turns twenty eight
and turning all homely of late
The property ladder
Will make him much gladder
As long as he can hack the wait!

Did a deep clean and de-clutter of my bedroom yesterday and when I got home today, for a split second, I thought "did I get burgled...by a WOMBLE?"

Dear Google,

I hear my company is suing you. Don't worry, I still love you.

Affectionately,

Zain

"Dear Iran,
Please can we have our ball back?
P.S. - f*ck you.

Kind regards,

It'll probably be sold to China anyway... I guess the US owe them a dollar or three so they shouldn't mind.
