Well hello everybody, I'm back! Did you all miss me over the past couple of weeks? Every day five or more newly approved entries are recommended on the h2g2 Main Page. These go by unnoticed to most users as they focus around their own page. This weekly article points out and reviews the most entertaining and interesting entries of the week, as far as I'm concerned anyway. My tastes do not reflect yours in any way and feel free to have completely different ideas from mine; it is, after all, a free country.

  • Dogs Ever wondered why your friend's stupid, flea ridden mutt likes to lick your face or chew your leg off. Well it's probabley fairly obvious but, if your unsure, have a look here. A nice little entry on mans best friend.

  • Improvisational Games Always good for a laugh are these. If you have never seen the television show you haven't lived. This entry highlights a few of the funnier games that can be played at parties.

  • Pusser's Rum Now this sounds like my kind of drink... lethal. Has a couple of ways to drink it and a drinking song for after you have got totally wasted on this stuff.

  • Robot Wars UK Fancy a bit of harmless mechanised violence? Then this is the entry for you; a good, detailed entry on the BBC programme. On a personal note I did try to enter this show once myself, however the price of building my mecanical warrior was going to be huge. I now cannot help feeling sorry for those people who have spent a fortune only to see it turned into scrap metal.

  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) Now this is quite interesting and, been a hypocondriac, I'm sure I suffer from it. So, if you're ever depressed on a dark gloomy day this could be the reason. Worth a look.

  • Sex and the Average Teenager If you're an old duffer like me then you've already been there, done that, got the T-Shirt. But I know a lot of you on h2g2 are still teenagers and even though I may sound like a sad adult, there is bound to be something in this entry for you, even though teenagers know everything and don't need advice from the olds :)

  • The Benefits of Going Bald Now I may only be 26, but Mother Nature has been cruel enough to me not only to make me a shortarse, but also to make me start to lose my hair stupidly early. So this entry is just what I needed to stop worrying about losing my mop (Hell I sound like a commercial) If you're in the same boat as me look here, it may change your life.

  • The Green Flash - a Researcher's Vision No, it's not a perverts trick with food colouring, but a rather clever trick of light which you need to be very lucky to see. If you're into astronomy this will be of interest.

  • The Simpsons If you haven't heard of the Simpsons you're either dead or lived in a cave all your life. This is a brilliant show and TV's Frink has done an excellent job on this entry. Well worth a look.

  • Tips for the Game of Scrabble Fed up with everyone beating you at Scrabble? Then this may help you get the edge over the competition.
