Top 5 Rube Goldberg and Domino effect videos

I’ve always been fascinated by the Rube Goldberg machines I’ve seen on television, and spent many hours as a child arranging various playthings around my bedroom in an attempt to have one thing interact with another, a ball hitting a piece of lego connected to a string attached to a plastic paratrooper. I rarely got a 5 step process working but it amused me for hours and was always more interesting than plain dominoes were, though the latter were another favourite pasttime. Here ...

Top 6 Budweiser Commercials

A good television advertisement for me isn’t always about what the actual product is – though of course the end product is important to those who are writing the adverts and is what they hope to sell. To me, I identify more with the advert if it captures my imagination, if it’s unique and especially if it makes me laugh. I could write many lists on the various types of adverts that have been aired, and I’m sure I will write several in the future – but for now, ...

Top 7 ways to travel around London

London is a wonderful, and beautiful city. It’s also quite big in general, but you would be surprised how close things actually are in Zone 1. I see tourists get on the tube at Leicester Square, only to get off again at Covent Garden – a journey which can take ten minutes on tube (get in the station, go down, wait for the train, get out, wait for lift, exit) can be done in just two minutes by walking. So why don’t people walk? Maybe they are too lazy, maybe they ...

Top 5 movies featuring Rabbits

Top 5 movies featuring Rabbits
Everyone likes rabbits, unless they suffer from something like lagomorphobia (such as the lovely Anya). However, rabbits don’t have a huge starring role on the screen in the past. We’ve had a few, of course (hence this list), but they just haven’t quite made it in the way dogs, cats, mice or other household pets have. This, I feel, is a real pity. The list below shows my top 5 movies that feature rabbits – and note by ‘feature’ I meant that they play an ...

Top 5 ways to save money on lunch

I work in the heart of Covent Garden, London which is fantastic. There’s a lot to do at lunch time, and can easily go into one of the many shops around and deposit a lot of my monthly salary on clothes, electronic goods and other random items I deem to be ‘essential’ in my impulse buying status. For lunch I usually go to a lovely little place nearby that does comforting home cooked food such as lasagne, cauliflower cheese and stews – nothing I can’t do myself, ...

Top 5 most irritating gameshows to watch

I love game shows, and will watch most drivel that’s put on in front of me. My favourite ones are those which ask general knowledge questions such as the fantastic 15 to 1 and, to a lesser extent, University Challenge (but only as the questions are much harder). However, there are some game shows that are just irritating to watch. Most of the time the format of the show is fine, but the combination of stupid contestants and often easy answers results in the viewer shouting obscenities ...

5 Games I’m looking forward to in 2007

It’s nearing the end of August and there are going to be a lot of games released between now and Christmas which is great for us gamers, but not so great for the bank balance or social life. Nowadays a game will cost you £40 or £50 in the shops, with about £10 off the RRP if you get it online through the likes of play.com…so you sometimes have to be careful about which games you do and don’t buy. There are, of course, some games which you simply must have and the following ...
