For those that don’t know (or probably care) I’ve recently been on a trip around most of the west coast of North America, it was awesome but I won’t bore you with the details. I did find this handy tool that lets you embed a map of where you went:
In other news, look at these funny dogs!
And finally, it seems like whoever designed the ADSL (broadband) protocol did a super job as some enterprising soul has got it working over a bit of wet string! This may have been what BT have been doing for years however.
After last week’s horror show – this week, upon reflection, I feel it time to spread some festive warmth.
On Christmas Eve – as ever – we’ll be big screening noradSanta whilst hitting up some festive Karaoke on the side with this (try that one in the office and see how long your colleagues smile and laugh before throwing your device out the window)

In other flight related things, this takes some serious balls!
Short on Christmas gift ideas, haven’t started your shopping yet, too lazy to leave the house, don’t like crowds, can’t be bothered to wait in queues, sick of that man shouting about his hot roast chestnuts; look no further here is a quick and handy guide courtesy of Buzzfeed. And you can order them straight from Amazon without having to leave the house.
If you are like us over at SteadyGo HQ you’ll be having your Christmas do soon and no doubt that will result in the onset of a hangover so here I am with some recipes to beat that hangover into touch: How about some crispy Sriracha chicken, or maybe Monterrey Jack Quesadillas, a homemade Big Mac may take your fancy.

I just wouldn’t even dare…and for good reason:
Here, have a video of a kitten:
This week I saw this great photo comparison of a Mercedes Formula One steering wheel from 1954 and a wheel from 2014. The evolution of the sport is summed up perfectly in the photo
And here’s a nice festive GIF to round of the week. What could possibly go wrong with using a chainsaw as your preferred mode of transport.
