If you Love to Hate the character, it's heel; if you just hate the character, it's The Scrappy; if you hate the performer, it's X-Pac Heat.

Moon Dust From Apollo 11 Lost In Storage For Years. I carried around a few micrograms of lunar regolith in wallet for several years, until I was asked to give it back. Not that it would have been good for anything - we pyrolised the shit out of it. Or would have done, had there been any present.

X-Pac, now performing again as the 1-2-3 Kid, has managed to recreate his relationship with wrestling audiences, at least in Chikara where he gets a storming reception each time he works.

Al Ewing reads from 'The Fictional Man'. Aces.

Ouya Teardown: What is inside a cheap Android device? Not a great deal.

Scarborough Station has a Travel Centre, ticket office, touch-screen ticket machines and the Pumpkin Cafe. The main building has a large waiting room. Platforms 3-5 are partly covered, as is platform 1, which features the longest railway bench in the world. Facilities sound great. Rather want to go and sit on that bench. Wait a moment - the most significant thing about the station is relegated to a subclause in the third sentence? A Pumpkin Cafe gets better billing that the longest station bench in the world? It's a pretty decent Wikipedia entry, but guys, c'mon! Rethink your priorities.

Big weekend of children's sport. Fingers crossed, eh?
