from the editor-in-chief

It’s 2018, and more than ever, technology is playing a larger role in our lives. Every year, we become more interconnected, more globalised and increasingly dependent on technology to do our jobs, make friends, and generally make our lives easier. But it’s not all roses. Particularly when it comes to social media. Issues with data collection and privacy breaches show that tech behemoths can’t be trusted to protect our personal details, which was proven earlier this year by the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and the public inquiries into social media that followed. In this issue, however, we look at something slightly different: how platforms like Twitter and Facebook fuel the fires of our already outrage-obsessed culture. The fear that we might lose our jobs and be cast out of polite society for voicing the…

girl brings cardboard danny devito to prom

DESPITE standing just higher than your average dwarf, being mostly bald and packing more spare tyre than a Bob Jane, Danny DeVito is still a verified sex symbol for men and women everywhere. Okay, okay. Sex symbol might be a bit of a stretch. However, the actor holds a special place for at least one teenage girl, who decided that in lieu of finding a real-life human date for her prom, that she’d bring a cardboard cut-out of the Twins star. “Making things work with a human date can be so exhausting,” Allison Closs jokingly told the New York Post. “Danny’s not like that. He just goes with the flow. . . We never argue, never fight. Plus, he treats me the way a woman should be treated.” The young woman’s dating decision…

look out! the germans are coming!

BUT this time they’re naked while riding an electric unicycle. A man identified by local authorities as “Mr A.” was arrested in Pattaya for riding an electric unicycle in the nude while attempting to masturbate in front of tourists. At first, considering the technical difficulties involved, we were almost impressed. But we quickly remembered that unicycles are primarily the domain of hippies, circus folk and clowns – all of whom should be outlawed to some degree or another. Also masturbating in public is wrong. Obviously. Local authorities are struggling to identify the 57-year-old man, as he was found completely naked, with nothing but an electric unicycle, and thus wasn’t carrying any form of identification. Pattaya attracts all sorts: Russians, Germans, Russians, Indians, Russians, Australians, Russians and dirty ex-pat pervs from all corners of the globe…

trump: the true burger king

FRANCE has its baguettes, croissants and an endless selection of smelly cheeses. Italy its pasta and pizza. In Australia, the humble meat pie and the lamington define the culinary landscape of this great country. In the US, it’s the hamburger, which has now become more than just an artery-clogging symbol for US fast food culture as it takes on a diplomatic role in peace talks between the US and North Korea. Sound surprising? No, nothing really does these days, does it? While it seems, at least according to CIA reports, that the baby-faced dictator of the Hermit Kingdom, Kim Jong-un, will likely renege on his promise to denuclearise the Korean peninsula, he may consider constructing an American-style burger joint in the nation’s capital, Pyongyang, as a gesture of goodwill. They still have the bomb,…

let it bee

SHEENA WAS IGNORED BY NEIGHBOURS WHILE BEING ATTACKED BY A SWARM OF BEES BECAUSE, BEING FLORIDA, THEY THOUGHT SHE WAS ON DRUGS. YOU guys know The Boy Who Cried Wolf? And also, how in practically every issue we report on a Florida local doing something crazy, usually in some drug or alcohol-induced psychosis? Well, this story is pretty much the Florida- Boy Who Cried Wolf. Except it involves bees and a woman. Sheena Derocker was ignored by neighbours and passersby while being attacked by a swarm of bees because, being Florida, they thought she was on drugs. The 24-year-old bartender and student decided to take a shortcut through an alley to get to her car, only to find herself caught in a swarm of angry bees. Her response was to drop her textbooks, run…

man attempts to prove his innocence by showing his d*ck

THIS could be a storyline straight from a porn film. “Your honour, in order to prove my innocence, I must now expose myself to this all-female jury, for their close inspection.” But it’s what really happened in an actual courtroom in Connecticut when an accused rapist argued that his genitals differed from those described by the victim. The accuser said that back in 2012, she was raped by a man whose penis was lighter than the rest of his body. She then picked Desmond James, 26, from a line-up. James’ lawyer argued that his client’s Johnson was darker than the rest of his skin – not lighter as the accuser had described it. The best way to prove this, he posited, was for James to drop his dacks and flop it out for the…
