https://youtu.be/uZGFTmK6Yk4 It's no secret that Boing Boing (along with over 4 million other netizens) loves the Primitive Technology channel on YouTube . We've covered this channel numerous times (about a guy making primitive tech in the wilds of Far North Queensland, Australia with nothing but the gym shorts on his ass). I anxiously await each new episode and am like a kid at Christmas when I get the alert that a new one is up. But this month, thanks to one of the reader comments, I made an amazing discovery. The videos are completely silent. The un-named survivalist, who some have dubbed "Prim," is really good at showing you what he's doing so that you can understand it without verbal explanation, and he writes up decent notes that are published along with the videos. But then I saw the comment: "[Turns on captions] That clever bastard has been talking to us the entire time!!" Whoa.

THE prospect of ever catching his erstwhile hero may seem unlikely but Craig Gordon will not stint in trying. Two days on from Gianluigi Buffon chalking up his 1000th career appearance, the man who used to cut off the sleeves of his goalkeeping shirts in homage will, almost certainly, line up for his 46th Scotland cap. It is the latest episode of an international career that began some 13 years ago amid promise and potential but has yet to reach the heights the then 21 year-old must have dreamed of.

This evening marked the final episode of Let's Sing and Dance for Comic Relief after four weeks of star-studded routines. And to mark the special occasion, Sue Perkins and Mel went all out for their special finale outfits. Sue wore a gold metallic blazer over the top of black trousers and top, while Mel opted for a sparkly red jumpsuit. However, it wasn't long until the former Great British Bake Off presenter revealed that she was experiencing some "bunching" in ...

BMW's X5 has always had to deal with the Land Rover Discovery (LR3 and LR4 in America for a time) but they weren't ever really big time competitors. People who bought Land Rovers wanted SUVs that were a bit more rugged, body-on-frame trucks that could handle all sorts of terrain. Utility took priority over luxury and performance, even in the more recent models. People who bought a BMW X5 wanted something a bit more luxurious with better performance and more comfort. However, that might change with this new Discovery. In this new episode from Carwow, Mat Watson drives the all-new Disco and it seems like a complete package in this segment. Now built on a similar platform as the Range Rover, the new Discovery is no longer a body-on-frame truck which, along with an aluminum extensive architecture, is significantly lighter than before. That makes it handle better and more comfortable.

the moderates were concerned there wasn't enough provision for some of the people in their constituencies. What this whole episode has highlighted is Donald Trump's inexperienced and why it matters is that this was essential key political test for Donald.

Tobias has been writing on Trump and Brexit and worked with Identity.ee, a workgroup focused on cryptographically proven citizenship. Stone believes that the Estonian model of e-idenity is the future and that the mission for every country should be to make their workers, citizen, and expats digital. Read More

“We’re going through the inevitable growing pains of being an opposition party to becoming a governing party,” he said Friday. Others agreed. “Your base walked away from it, the White House wouldnt own it, and the leadership was caught flat-footed,” said Michael Steele, the former Republican National Committee chairman. “What I hope is that folks sober up to what this episode says about our readiness to govern. Because come mon morning, the country’s going to want you to have some answers to some things, and you better be prepared.” Gaetz and Faso just got to Washington, so neither cast any of the show votes for repealing Obamacare that were a regular feature of the last few Congresses. Rep. Dan Donovan (R-N.Y.) cast a few, though, and he’s still proud he did—despite being a firm no through this week on the repeal effort. “They were messaging votes,” Donovan said.

Meadows knew the heath care fight would be viewed a test of his independence from Trump, and the moment the president called him out, he was boxed in. That was the biggest mistake the president could have made, one Freedom Caucus member told me. Mark desperately wanted to get to yes, and Trump made it impossible for him. If he flipped after that he would look incredibly weak. Disappointed with the episode, and with the president's apparent inflexibility, Meadows and other Freedom Caucus members back-channeled with the administration and landed what they thought was an invitation to the White House on Wednesday morning. They hoped for a meeting with Trump and an opportunity to negotiate some major policy changes directly with him. Instead, they found themselves hauled into the less-than-inspiring Executive Office Building for a pep rally with Vice President Mike Pence, chief of staff Reince Priebus, Bannon, and other members of Trump's inner circle—but not the president himself.

A little while back, we drove the new, second-generation MINI Countryman up in snowy Oregon and actually put the British brand's more off-roading-oriented car to the test. While no on will mistake this MINI Countryman with the other famous British off-roader (Land Rover), it actually handled itself quite well. However, with its newfound love for muddy stuff and increase in size, is it still a proper MINI. We think so but don't take our word for it. In this latest episode of Carwow, Mat Watson drives the new MINI Countryman and shows us all of the odd quirks and features of the new car. First, it's quite a lot larger than it seems like a MINI should be. But, that increase in size helps add some much-needed interior space and practicality. With the rear seats folded down it's actually quite capacious. Although, they can be a bit annoying to operate.
