Brexiteers are battling bugs by keeping their phones in the microwave – the only 9 responses you need to read

A large part of the Leave campaign was based on scaremongering about terrorists masquerading as juvenile asylum seekers, the perils of hearing another language on the train, and immigrants taking all the good jobs whilst – somehow – managing to live off the state at the same time. However, the level of paranoia may have been worse than we first suspected, if this news item is anything to go by.

The New European reported

“A senior member of the European Research Group (ERG) of hardline Tory MPs has been urging his colleagues to buy microwaves for their parliamentary offices to stop Remainers and foreign spooks snooping on their talks.”

Well, we hardly know where to start with that one, so we wont. Well just let you know what other people had to say about it.

Hang on. They put their phones in microwaves to stop themselves being listened in on?

So do they get into the microwaves entirely, or just stick their heads in when making a call?

Next from David Davis: “I microwaved my phone & now it doesnt work!”

The same people who are doing this are the same ones who think there is a “technological solution” to the Irish border

Well I say think …. Believe would be a better word

Quite amusing that the ERG, who believe 'new technology' will be the saviour of the border are also technically illiterate enough to think the cavity of a microwave oven will shield a mobile phone. Clue : It doesn't

We're at that point where #Brexit is such a fucking shambles you can't tell which headlines are satire. https://t.co/fV43MRmWXF

I love this. Presumably its to have a Faraday cage effect. But the only time it will be intercepted will be on calls, and these cant be made inside the cage. ⁦@J_amesp⁩ ? https://t.co/hH8Ac36rbX

Two gorillas have been photographed posing for a relaxed selfie with the rangers who rescued them as babies.

The image was taken at a gorilla orphanage in Virunga National Park, DR Congo, where the animals were raised after poachers killed their parents.

The park’s deputy director told BBC Newsday that they had learned to imitate their carers, who have looked after them since they were found.

The gorillas, he added, think of the rangers as their parents.

Innocent Mburanumwe, deputy director of Virunga, told the BBC that that the gorillas’ mothers were both killed in July 2007.

The gorillas were just two and four months old at the time.

Shortly afterwards, they were found and taken to Senkwekwe Sanctuary in Virunga, where they have lived ever since.

Because they’ve grown up with the rangers who rescued them, Mr Mburanumwe added, “they are imitating the humans” – and standing on two legs is their way of “learning to be human beings”.

But it “doesn’t happen normally”, he said. (more…)
