Faster driving <> unsafer driving

The Association of British Drivers calls for the standard motorway speed limit to be raised to 80 mph.

Al Jazeera journalists run a blog

Most celebs look awful in real life

Magazines, billboards, internet, the television – every day we are exposed to more and more media celebrities. Most of whom make money off of projecting a totally fake, manufactured physical identity. I often find that annoying, to say the least, so articles like this make my day.. The unforgiving clarity of high-definition television has induced […]
