Things that Make no sense

I feel like this could be a theme for 2016: #thingsthatmakenosense .

Early contenders from this week so far, which could also be filed under “Wow, that escalated quickly”:

  • B.O.B. really seems to believe that the earth is flat. Like, for reals, you guys. Twitter told him. B.O.B repelled all takers. Even renowned scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson told him. Then B.O.B released a diss track about him and Tyson’s eponymous nephew issued a reply. I actually like B.O.B. but I’m going to have to file his music under “guilty pleasures” along with Blurred Lines on the grounds of sheer ignorance. Whisky. Tango. Foxtrot.
  • How Google paid the UK approx £130 million in back taxes and is going to pay Italy roughly the same amount even though the Italian operation is less than a tenth of the size of the UK one. Part of me is quite pleased that Osborne’s attempt to gain political capital by touting this “deal” has rebounded spectacularly
