You know what would be really handy? If a trained rally driver with access to a bunch of all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles helpfully explained the difference between these two ever-more confused terms. Oh wait, here he is!

The ketogenic diet (or 'keto' for short) involves the eradication of most carbs from your diet in favour of proteins and fats. It has exploded in popularity among women in recent years, with multiple mummy blogs singing its virtues.
However, there's a slightly icky side-effect you may wish to ponder before embarking on a high-fat, low-carb diet. In short, it can cause a marked change in vaginal odour - AKA the 'Keto Crotch'.
Earlier this week, Google's CEO Sundar Pichai faced a House Judiciary Committee in the United States Congress to answer questions about recent data breaches and other important security matters. So, naturally, the discussion turned to extremely serious and important matters. Like why searches on Google for the word "idiot" turn up images of President Donald Trump.
What's inside the glowing briefcase in Pulp Fiction? It's one of the greatest mysteries in cinema. Quentin Tarantino has remained deliberately coy on the subject, vowing to never reveal the answer. "It's whatever the viewer wants it to be," he once teased.
Except that's not quite true. The answer is explicitly spelled out in an original screenplay draft. (Spoiler: It has nothing to do with Marsellus Wallace's soul.)
One of the unintended benefits of virtual-reality headsets is the ability to watch TV. The Google Daydream, Samsung Galaxy Gear VR and PlayStation VR are provide excellent private viewing theatres to catch up on your favourite shows.
Today I discovered that this concept isn't new. In 1937, a British company launched a tiny, personalised TV set known as the 'Television Monocle'. Tell me you don't want one.
Graphic designers, you should probably stay away from this one. This optical illusion messes with your vision in a way that creates false colours that could linger for over three months - though don't worry, you have to be trying pretty hard to have that pronounced an effect. It's called the McCollough effect, and here is how it works.
It feels kind of incongruous to think of Nazis celebrating Christmas, but adapting the yearly holiday was apparently a key part of the new way of life Hitler and his followers were trying to build. In an attempt to rid Christmas of any Jewish implications, however, it was reinvented with a more Germanic pagan vibe.
The Second World War swallowed up the years between 1939 and 1945, affecting people across the globe and ending as the deadliest conflict in human history. As some of humanity's darkest days, it's origins and legacy are taught in schools across the world. It may be easy to understand who attacked who - but it isn't easy to fully comprehend the scale until it's laid out for you in simple, easy to understand terms.
Just like this two-part video series does.
In 1979, two years after the death of Elvis Presley, a gold vinyl appeared in record stores across America. The album was titled 'Reborn' and featured a masked man bedecked in an Elvis-style jumpsuit and trademark pompadour. His name was Orion - and his singing voice was eerily similar to the king of rock and roll.
Could it be that Elvis was still alive and performing under a new name?
