A crest bearing the legend The H2G2 PostA crest bearing the legend The H2G2 Post

Posted: 22nd July 2013



...would you find all these in one spot? Nature. News. Historical insight. A personal account from showbiz. Fiction. Art. Humour.

In the h2g2 Post, of course. Your go-to place for entertainment and astonishing revelations. Florida Sailor was on a Hollywood set for an historic TV moment. Who knew? Awix likes monster movies. Who would have guessed? (I refrain from Jason Statham wisecracks here.) Willem has spotted the elusive Zucchinibeest! Alert the tabloids!

No, don't. We're keeping this one all to ourselves, thank you very much.

The Post welcomes a new contributor this week. Crunchy Frog's going to fit right in around here. He's got snark down to a fine art already. Please enjoy his revelatory essay on what causes male pattern baldness, and welcome him to h2g2 in suitable fashion.

It's summer, the weather is hot – it's even warmed up in the Carolinas again, hurrah – and weirdness abounds. We've got summer fun for you, and a quiz to keep your brains from drying up under all that unaccustomed sunlight. For the cultured among us, meaning me and Nigel, there's joy in the fact that in the US, Netflix has FINALLY got The Magic Flute available for streaming. Let the arias begin!

Where are you going this week? Mountains, seashore, downtown? To the kitchen for another beer? Write. Tell us about it. Send pics. You know where.

Have a good week!
