1. Mexican journalist asks stupid/amazing question at press conference for George Clooney’s new film.
So, there’s this film out at the moment called Gravity. It’s set in outer space. It has Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in it.
And it’s pretty popular despite a couple of glaring scientific inaccuracies. (We’re pretty sure that booty shorts aren’t issued as part of the NASA uniform.)
But perhaps the film was a little too real for Mexican TV entertainment reporter, Carlos “El Capi” Pérez.
At a press conference for the film, the reporter asked the film’s director, Alfonso Cuarón, “”What were the technical and human difficulties of filming in space? Was it very difficult, very complicated to film in space? Did the camera operators get sick?”
Cuarón decided to play along, saying: “We were in space for three-and-a-half months. I got really sick during training.” And then everyone laughed at the trolling journo and the director’s humorous answer and the celebrity news story ended there, right?
Because – after receiving an understandable amount of ‘what the’ reactions – El Capi has since tweeted: “Excuse me Twitter for being a professional committed to information. Don’t tell me I was the only one who had that doubt.”
Wait… so was he actually serious? #confused

This week, England won their World Cup qualifier against Poland. To be fair, it’s probably a game that they were always going to win, but we’ll let the poms be excited, regardless.
After watching the game, Prince Harry and his mates did what twenty-something men do after a football game – they went and had fast food.
And so it came to pass that the fourth-in-line to the throne wandered into Fulham Broadway Nando’s, and event that was featured as the top story for British tabloids The Daily Mirror and The Daily Mail.
But what does a Prince eat at Nando’s? We’re so glad you asked. The fine journalists at The Mirror have obtained Harry’s receipt from the adventure, which informs us that he ate a chicken breast fillet in lemon and herb sauce, cheese and a side order of mashed potato. He also purchased a double chicken breast wrap and chips for a friend.
So, there you go. Tackling the big issues. Always.
