You may or may not have heard of Snuff Box, a pretty awesome sketch show which starred Matt Berry and Rich Fulcher.

Back in 2008 Polaroid stopped making instant film to concentrate on digital, closing down all but one of their factories.

Yo! This guy’s literally taking the music to the streets. Take a Wu-Tang Clan classic, an afro, guitar, mic, and some drums put them all together with some fine talent and what do you get? You get a lesson in badassery.

This might not be the sort of pram you want to put your baby in, but don’t deny it’s pretty damn cool.
These guys and their souped up pram are hoping to break the sound barrier. OK, maybe not, but they’re hoping to get up to 50mph.
Destin Sandlin, from YouTube science channel Smarter Every Day, sets himself the challenge of learning to ride a backwards bike with reversed steering.
