Are they that big?
Good on 'em.
I think the only way to answer that question is to see where they are next year. They're making a big splash right now though.
Fun fact, I've worked with one of One Direction (Zayn) on an Aimhigher event as he went to a local school. He was deeply, deeply stupid.
Now that, HI is deeply disappointing.
It may be one of my weaknesses but I tend to think that anyone who makes it that big must have something a little more than me...

They have, they've got marketing.
but what about sausages
I hope the "unnamed cleric" was suitably embarrassed when he realised what he'd done. (In the article, he says that Muslim women should be banned from touching cucumbers, zucchini, and anything similar in shape)
As one comment says "shouldn't Muslim men then be prohibited from holding melons"?
But I've never understood these kind of things. Won't they just bring ridicule and make people suddenly think of sexual things every time they see one a cucumber, banana, et cetera? It seems rather counter intuitive to bring attention to it.
I wonder if maybe I am missing something. I don't know if I get what is going on. Anyway, good luck to the muslim women who have to deal with that seriously. What a ing mess.

I have 3 responses to that shocking headline.
Please choose one.
1. Government has no place in the bedrooms of the nation.
2. Didn't husbands always have this option anyway.
3. Nuke the entire mid-east now.
Or the story is bollocks.
What's a quarter of a day between spouses?
Probably lost in translation, but you never know who the audience for what will think of when.. and blah balh.

How do you say "Vive le Québec libre!" in Tibetan?
Maybe the old fellow will visit Scotland next.
You'd think a guy who claims to have been re-incarnated
as many times as he would know better than to play the
"we're-all-in-this-together" card against our Two Solitudes
in hopes of turning our anger and angst, and let's face it
our ability to compromise, to his own Tibetan ends.
Oh, the shame of politics. The ignorance of kings and deli
