What I think is totally awesome is that Daniel Craig said that the Queen was supposed to look up straight away, but she improvised the letter writing and completely blanked him, so the awkward standing there was completely realisitic. The Queen ignored James Bond because she was ACTING.
You hear that? Our Queen is not just a Queen she is an actress, Bond girl, has tea and scones with Ten, and hired Sherlock Holmes.

Time to reclaim the asphalt jungle and score one for the trees — it’s our Project of the Day.
There should be more projects like this in the world.
How cool is this? This guy wrote a bot that buys him random items from Amazon.com up to a predetermined budget. I don’t think I’d be able to spend real money on truly random stuff, but it’s a cool idea.
Hi. I’m Darius Kazemi. Recently I’ve been making a bunch of weird stuff that randomly generates things. For example, there’s the Twitter account @metaphorminute, which tweets a random metaphor every couple minutes. There’s also OutSlide, which generates a slide deck from an outline that you…
