We don’t know about you guys, but our eyebrow grooming habits have less to do with our brows actually needing to be plucked and everything to do with the amount of wine we’ve consumed. Here’s a handy pie chart to illustrate.

Anatomy Of An Amazing News Story: Jamie Oliver + Joy Division = Gothpocalypse

What do you get when you combine celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and a backhoe? This sounds like the beginning of a raunchy riddle, but it’s totally real, and the answer may surprise you. Apparently Oliver was excavating a basement for a new restaurant in Manchester when he stumbled upon some legit buried treasure, including the predictable cache of guns, gold, and jewelry, and one not-so-predictable discovery: Joy Division and New Order master tapes. The total value of the basement loot has been estimated at £1.1 million (nearly 2 million dollars). Oliver has donated all of his findings to the treasury, so it’s unclear what will happen to the haul, but one result of this post-punk surprise is certain: Gothpocalypse! [NME]

5 Real And Imagined Ridiculous Campaign Promises

Look at the graphic above. Believe it or not, one of the ridiculous campaign promises above was actually uttered by a presidential candidate. Yes, Newt Gingrich actually claims that, if elected, he’ll get a moon colony going by the end of his second term. That’s right America: You could be barbecuing on the moon by 2020 if Newt has his way. Newt’s plan would allow for the moon colony to apply for statehood once a population of 13,000 had been achieved. So yes, he’s thought of everything.

“I will, as president, encourage the introduction of the ‘Northwest Ordinance’ for space to put a marker down that we want Americans to think boldly about the future, and we want Americans to go out and study hard and work hard and together we’re going to unleash the American people to build the country we love,” Gingrich said in Florida this week, rather not coincidentally in an area hard hit by the cancellation of the space program.

Candidates will say anything to get elected, am I right? So we dreamed up a few other wild zingers we thought the President and Newt’s fellow Republican candidates might say. Enjoy!
