  1. Accio Time-Turner: Colleges Now Offer “Study Harry Potter Abroad” Courses

    Sallie Mae Owl, this is literally the worst time.

    Did your Hogwarts Acceptance Letter get lost in the post? Did you drop out of school to pursue your Quidditch dreams, only to have your career cut short by a difficult bout of dragon pox? There's still hope!

  2. Creationism Has Been Banned in All State-Funded Schools in the UK

    So maybe don't teach the controversy.

    Score one for science! New clauses added to the funding agreements for schools in the UK have banned creationism from being taught as fact in any schools that accept government funds -- even church schools.

  3. The UK’s Robot Soldier “Porton Man” Can Sense Chemical Warfare (and Probably Also Your Fear)

    His Schwarzenegger skin-suit must not be ready yet.

    If you thought the US was the only country building an army of robot nightmares, the UK's Porton Man robot soldier will assure you that no corner of the globe is safe from uncanny valley-fueled horror. Guys, I'm pretty sure they robots will make their own soldiers once they reach sentience. No need to help.

  4. A Dalek Head Was Found Submerged in a UK Pond, What Is Even Real Anymore?

    And then the guy who found it probably pissed himself.

    Now, you have a handy replacement for your irrational fear that a shark hides in the depths of any body of water you get into! Hey, at least Daleks don't exterminate so well under water. Or at least, it seems like they don't because the one that was recently found in a UK pond was completely broken down—unless that's just what it wants us to think.

  5. ISP Porn Filters in the UK Accidentally Blocked a League of Legends Update Over Its Filenames

    Guys, why are you blocking sex, anyway? Isn't that pretty much the opposite of porn?

    Proving that new porn filters they've adopted are super effective, some ISPs in the UK have blocked a League of Legends patch. Job well done, guys. Wait, what? There's nothing pornographic about the League of Legends patch, and the obviously high tech porn filters banned it simply for having the letters "sex" in a row in filenames? Well that won't do.

  6. A Ghost Ship Filled With Cannibal Rats Is Headed for Britain, Because Real Life Is Crazy Sometimes

    No, that's not the setup for a 28 Days Later sequel but a real thing that's happening.

    The Lyubov Orlova is a cruise ship that's been floating around the ocean without its crew, and it has built in defenses in the form of zombie rats. Well, they're actually cannibal rats, but I'm going to go ahead and consider any angry horde that eats its own zombies. Better safe than sorry.

  7. Batman, Robin, a Smurf, and David Hasselhoff Fought Crime in the UK Last Week

    That is not a series of words we would ever expect to write. Guys, what is even happening over there?

    A guy dressed as Robin was assaulted while innocently spending time with friends dressed as Batman, a giant smurf, and David Hasselhoff in the UK last week, and the entire crew sprang into action to catch the attacker. Is it weird that the part of this we're having trouble accepting is someone dressed as Hasselhoff?

  8. Here Is David Tennant With A Cat On His Head Because Of Reasons [Video]

    The man knows his target audience.

    David Tennant is no doubt pretty busy trying to brush up on his American accent in time for Fox's Broadchurch remake to begin filming in January, but as this short video for UK's Virgin Media TiVo service shows, he's got time to put cats on his head. We think you'll agree that everyone is better off for it.

  9. Fox Sneaks Into Man’s Bed, Apparently Just Wants To Snuggle

    I don't see what the problem is here. If I woke up with a fox cuddling me, I would be delighted.

    A British IT worker who thought he was cuddling with his girlfriend in the early morning got a rude awakening when it turned out his partner in bed was actually a fox that had snuck in overnight and made itself at home. Personally, though, I don't see what so wrong here -- I'm betting that fox is way cuddlier than his girlfriend.

  10. Helpful British Hacker Proposes New Firewall to Block Everything on the Internet But Porn

    If you're among the legions of people who uses the Internet solely for viewing filth, this could actually be a time saver.

    As far as ways to fence off porn and non-porn content on the Internet, here's one that's at least novel. UK-based dork sicksad has heard his government's calls for a default porn filter, and he helpfully built one for them, creating a DIY-firewall that blocks any and all non-pornographic content on the Internet. That was the plan, right guys?
