What purpose does this article have in telling us "Eight people - including a pregnant woman and a 76-year-old man" were involved? Are we to feel more sympathy for the pair of them? Are the others somehow less significant because they are neither old nor bearing new life??

Most boring headline ever? At the end of every year, there is a chance to look back over the news event and take stock. 'No ornaments for Tate Christmas tree' has to be the most tedious non-story of the entire year- I couldn't even bring myself to read the article. News? No. Public interest? Who would be interested in this? Why, when there are some really interesting things going on in the world, is time, effort and money being wasted on this?

MM, how could you do it to me, after several years of doing the weekly quiz my highest score is still only 6/7. Today I could have got 7/7 except for your dodgy question 3, where the answer you give does not match the question. The technology to sort the notes has little to do with why they have not been destroyed!! Surely they could just destroy them all quite easily. Arrrgggghhhhhh.

It took me a few minutes to figure out, when reading the picture caption here, that "C" was not the code name for Mrs Philby, but was an abbreviation for "centre". An unnecessary complexity, in this case, as I believe I would have worked out which one was the lady in question.

10 things - 10/12. Number 3 - Soap opera can be live. I think you have forgotten the EastEnders live episode in February?

10 things we didn't know last week #2. There's a condition that can cause teenagers to sleep for weeks on end. Er, is it called lectures?
