"The woman opposite me on the tube has been talking about juicing for 25 straight minutes now. It’s quite hypnotic…I kinda zoned out & now I’m sure she said that one of the things she enjoyed juicing was coleslaw. I may have to talk to her. I’m not sure I could live with myself if I missed a chance to meet someone who juices coleslaw."

Public service announcement!
If you are eligible and have not yet done so, please register as an organ donor in your country.
Ben Hughes received a heart and lung transplant which has enabled him to live significantly longer than expected. Unfortunately his body is now rejecting the organs, which is always a risk, but having a transplant meant having more of a life than he thought.
It’s simply not true that if you are in an accident and medics see you’re a donor, they won’t work as hard to save your life. It’s a horrible, false claim that unfortunately I’ve heard in the past.
Judging by Mat’s Twitter, it looks like he’s decided to finally kick the smoking habit. Yay!
This is a very good thing to do, and we wish him luck. We’re sure he’ll succeed because, well, Mat’s just a lot cooler than nicotine. Mat Osman hangs out with the likes of Brett Anderson. Nicotine will go with anyone. Mat Osman is witty and clever and most likely the life of the party, though we’re not cool enough to get invited to those types of parties. Nicotine is a serial killer. Mat Osman poses for photos like this:
Nicotine doesn’t even HAVE a face. There is no contest.
