I’ve been wondering where this nice thick layer of insulation on my tummy came from. Apparently bread makes you fat? Well, I guess I should stop eating Portuguese rolls forever… said nobody ever! ROUND BELLY FOR LIFE!

Nite Owl of the Week

Nite Owl

Owlman? Please, don’t make me laugh – that’s so last Tuesday. We’re moving onto Nite Owl now because REASONS!

Anyhow, your othercaped crusader this week is… Guest Writer? Who the hell is that?

Why, it’s Grant Nicol! He wrote a PES 2017 review for us, and it looks like our super formula has deemed him worthy of receiving this award.

Header of the Week


Simple and effective. Nice header that perfectly encompasses the bait-and-switch that Telkom decided to pull with their Uncapped LTE.

Most Comments

Telkom have done the ol’ switcharoo with their Uncapped LTE packages. Naturally, many people are pissed off. The issue certainly got you all talking. That article raked in an astounding 147 comments!

Comment of the Week

So, how exactly are we going to take full advantage of 4K TVs? Should we use media upscaling devices, HvR*?

Media upscaling devices are like penis pumps, lots of promises but mostly under delivers.

No? Ok then.

Bonus Premium Content

Finally, we’re down to the last episode of the Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared saga. Are you ready?

This is probably the most glorious thing I’ve ever seen on YouTube. Thanks Darryn!

Proof that bread does in fact make you fat. Thanks for the hot tip, Ramona.


*I know HvR got this award last week too. Having him again this week was Gavin’s idea. Do I smell money changing hands?
