But the joke is on, er, you people who don't buy ratty 26-year-old V8 American barges. It passed, and not only did it pass, it only needed a couple of wipers. After phoning my wife to suggest we could call off the divorce, I wafted back to our offices in my £1500, 12-month MOT, V8 Cadillac Seville, in pure disbelief. What exactly is it, though? Well, you'll probably know Cadillac as the one-time leader (in the US at least) of premium cars, and while the first 1976 Seville was exactly as you imagine it to be - laughably massive - by 1991 things had calmed down a bit. You see, by this stage, Cadillac was seriously worried about Mercedes and BMW stealing market share, and in a bid to fend them off, it made its third-generation Seville much smaller. In fact, it's shorter and only slightly heavier than the latest BMW 5 Series 520d. Rather embarrassingly, not only is it actually quite small, but it's also front-wheel drive.

Per a report from the Washington Post , Donald Trump incorrectly believes that the human body is like a battery it comes into this world with a "finite amount of energy." He also believes that exercise will deplete this energy, so he does not exercise. And as Stephen Colbert points out, this embarrassingly poor logic would indicate that the strongest people in the world are babies. Really puts Boss Baby in a whole new light, doesn't it?

The NBA is a better league when the Lakers are good, and the Lakers haven't been very good lately. The franchise hasn't won more than 30 games since the 2012-13 season. If Los Angeles can get a lottery pick and then select the right prospect for the team, they should become a more excitingand a more relevantfranchise in 2017 and beyond. Phoenix Suns Since we're on the topic of relevance, when is the last time the Phoenix Suns were a relevant team? They haven't been to the postseason since the 2009-10 season, yet they haven't exactly been embarrassingly bad during their losing stretch either. In fact, the Suns had a winning record just three seasons ago, though their mark of 48-34 was only good for ninth place in the Western Conference. Unlike the 76ers. To put things simply, Phoenix may need a lottery pick to remind some that the franchise even exists.

Let's fill some strawberries with chocolate mousse and roll with it. This is so embarrassingly easy that I barely even know how to tell you about it. But I’m going to! You might remember last year, I shared a recipe for my s’mores stuffed strawberries . They are actually from my first cookbook and such a simple easy idea, but something slightly fancier than chocolate-covered strawberries… and they are so freaking good. It’s that time of year again, and by “that time of year” I mean the time of year for strawberries and, let’s be real, s’mores. Well, there isnt ever NOT a time for s’mores, but summer is more s’mores-like, dont you think? Anyhooooo. I wanted to make a similar concept for mother’s day, a super simple easy recipe you could throw together the morning of. One that everyone would love but one that barely has any ingredients. One that wouldn't stress you out! One of my favorite indulgent but classic desserts is this milk chocolate mousse made with coco nut whipped cream .

promises in the heat of an election campaign. Only to find yourself a little down the track at having to embarrassingly reverse out of them. At the moment because of the intense focus of an election campaign, reporters like me asking politicians every second minute what they are going to commit to. Given the media spotlight on them it's perfectly understandable they are tempted to want to say somebody generate.

England and France were drawn against each other and Argentina as they were handed a tough assignment for the 2019 World Cup on Wednesday. Holders New Zealand were bracketed with South Africa and Italy, while hosts Japan got a kinder draw against Ireland and Scotland. England's assignment in Pool C alongside age-old rivals France, and 2015 semi-finalists Argentina, evoked memories of their nightmare showing four years ago. On home turf, the 2003 champions embarrassingly failed to reach the knock-outs after landing in a group with Wales, Australia, Fiji and Uruguay. "It's all very exciting isn't it?" said England coach Eddie Jones. "We've got two Tests against Argentina in June so we can practise a little bit." When asked about France, Jones said: "They've really improved over the last two years and they're certainly a dangerous team." Twelve teams of an eventual 20 learned their fate at a glitzy draw ceremony in Kyoto, Japan's ancient capital, more than two years before the tournament starts.

Suspected human bones were recovered Wednesday from South Korea's sunken Sewol ferry, officials said -- after having to embarrassingly withdraw a similar assertion after the ship was salvaged in March. The 6,800-ton vessel sank off the country's southwestern coast three years ago, claiming more than 300 lives, mostly high school students on an excursion. One of the country's worst-ever maritime disasters, it dealt a crushing blow to now-ousted president Park Geun-Hye, and nine of the victims' bodies have yet to be recovered. Raising it in one piece was a key demand of their families, and workers have since been painstakingly sifting through the silt piled up inside the hull. Two bones were retrieved Wednesday from a passenger cabin on the fourth floor, the maritime ministry said. Citing forensic experts on the scene, it said they were apparently human and had been sent to the National Forensic Service for DNA tests.

Italian football has been hit by a second racist storm inside a week after Juventus defender Mehdi Benatia was insulted live on air during a live, post-match television interview with Italian state broadcaster Rai. Benatia, a Morocco international, was being interviewed following a 1-1 Serie A draw at home with city rivals Torino when it was cut embarrassingly short by what seemed like a studio technician's gaffe. As he was speaking to studio presenters about Juventus, Benatia heard a voice over his radio earpiece say: "What are you saying, shitty Moroccan?" Benatia, who had been answering a question about Juventus winning their sixth consecutive Serie A title, stopped mid-sentence and said: "Who said that? What stupid person is speaking?" Presenters also heard the remark, but tried to brush it off, telling Benatia: "It seems there are some technical problems.

Prince Philip, whose retirement from public duties was announced Thursday, has been Queen Elizabeth II's loyal husband for almost 70 years but has often hit the headlines for his salty off-the-cuff comments. The 95-year-old Duke of Edinburgh is patron, president or a member of almost 800 organisations, and has accompanied his wife on countless British and overseas engagements. Five years ago he said he believed he had "done his bit", and now, despite continued robust health, he has decided to step back altogether. Prince Philip has been by the queen's side since their marriage in 1947, before she became monarch. They share a sense of duty and tradition as well as a great-great-grandmother, queen Victoria. In a 1997 speech marking their golden wedding anniversary, she said he has, "quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years". He has stolen the limelight more than a few times with his outspoken remarks, some of them embarrassingly politically incorrect gaffes.

Only to then re-flate it to a normal size. Healthcare is fascinating. John McCann - Phones, Wearables & Tablets UK Editor You either love or hate FIFA. Its an iconic gaming franchise, which admittedly is now ruled more by churning out money than actually making a fully fledged football simulation - but for one sweet moment in FIFA 97 and 98 it seemed EA Sports was onto something. Enter, the indoor arena. This wasnt your standard 11-a-side match on astro under a huge dome - oh no. This was proper indoor football, five players on each team, 6ft x 8ft goals, an insanely close penalty spot and a wooden floor. You could score direct from kick off with the right amount of shot power thanks to a goalkeeper glitch which would see the ball roll embarrassingly under the foot of the hapless man between the sticks - but that wasnt the charm here.

Every day, it’s sort of like we’re having breakfast or lunch or let’s be real COCKTAILS together and it’s fun and I wish it could happen in real life. Preferably on a beach or something. These are embarrassingly easy, as is everything I make with puff pastry. Some chopped fresh strawberries take a nap in a sugar shower and get stuffed inside buttery, flakey puff pastry. Then we make a strawberry glaze and drizzle it on top.

It may not be fake news, but it certainly looks a lot like pro-Macron propaganda. Finally, I’d like to end with the following tweet, which I think summarizes the situation. Macron is like the fiat money of politicians. Created out of thin air to help bankers steal everything. Michael Krieger (@LibertyBlitz) April 24, 2017 The bottom line is Macron is a total fake. Indeed, he’s almost embarrassingly phony, but will it matter? My feeling is that he will probably win the May 7th runoff, but I dont think the spread will be anywhere near as wide as everyone is predicting. I continue to think that it wont be France, but more likely Italy, which will put the final nail in the EU coffin. As always, we shall see.

By deferring explicit funding for the wall into the future, Trump has removed one of the major obstacles to avoiding a government shutdown, one that would embarrassingly begin on his 100th day in office. Conway also chided Democrats for being unwilling to support the wall when prominent members of the party, including former President Barack Obama and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, both former senators, as well as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer all voted in favor of a 2006 bill that authorized roughly 700 miles of fencing along some portions of the U.S.-Mexico border. That legislation was far less ambitious than the border wall that Trump has proposed and Politifact rated a similar assertion made over the weekend – that Obama, Clinton and Schumer had all once voted in favor of a border wall in 2006half true. “I suppose because they don't want this president to have a victory on this, and that's really petty and peevish and partisan,” Conway said when asked by the Fox News panel of hosts why Democrats oppose Trump’s wall when they supported the 2006 fence legislation.

The United States' Secretary of State has now fully reconciled himself with the hawkish members of the administration, who are overjoyed at US's recent recourse to hard power in Syria, Yemen, and Afghanistan, not to overlook North Korea. But, after having issued empty threats to North Korea and embarrassingly making a U-turn on Trump's public boast of dispatching a powerful armada toward North Korea, the White House is desperately looking to de-escalate, in part by shifting focus on Iran and thus deflecting attentions on another target. At the same time, swallowing the arsenic of its own poisonous language on the nuclear deal, the administration has essentially taken away with one hand what it has offered with the other hand, namely, respect for the nuclear deal and abiding with its terms and obligations. Clearly, Tillerson is now trying to obfuscate the issues to justify the impending Iran legislation in Congress and the major stab at the nuclear deal which will almost certainly follow when and if the new sanctions bills are enacted, re-introducing some of the sanctions lifted under the nuclear deal.

In the case of group interviews, Barnett advised candidates to initially maintain eye contact with the person who asked the question. In the course of responding, the candidate should also look at other interviewers to read their nonverbal cues and keep them engaged, Barnett suggested. Arriving Empty-Handed Have you ever been to an interview where the hiring manager asks for a copy of your resume and you have to embarrassingly say you dont have it? Its true that we live in a digital world, and your interviewer could probably easily pull it up on their phones or walk to their desk and hit print. But remember, at a job interview, its on you to make the case of why youre the best for this job. As Fast Company previously reported , bringing hard copies of your resume, portfolio, and copies of references can show that youre prepared to move forward with the job should an offer be forthcoming.
