TinMan and Teatime agencies […]

Martin Ivanov drove the Lotus F1 car.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Tuesday 25 November 2014

Got to love this collection of the women in classical art paintings rejecting prospective suitors, with hilariously dubbed subtitles by Seth D Michaels. Goes to show that classical art is not always about the male gaze but really open to interpretation.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

So us humans can walk into brick walls and manholes as we text… while goats out-perform us in everyday life — as this video of a bunch of goats gallantly balancing on a buoyant metal sheet clearly shows. We are properly ashamed of our lack of dexterity.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Travel on Monday 24 November 2014

Presented by Tiger Air

Believe it or not, but back in the 1970s, air passengers weren’t spoiled with a huge assortment of video games to play while flying. In fact, Atari was just in its early days and arcade games weren’t nearly as highly developed as they are now. So to keep passengers occupied aboard Continental Airlines, passengers were treated to rather extravagant inflight entertainment: two-player ping pong.
