Burger King advert trolls McDonald's with entire menu mocking Big Macs

Burger King Sweden has trolled its rival in the form of a new ad - adding insult to injury after the giant lost its Big Mac trademark in the EU.

The Big Mac is a McDonald's classic, loved by fast food fans all over the world.

Stripes that protect zebras from horseflies may do the same for humans

Striped body painting used by some indigenous groups may provide protection against horseflies, research suggests.

For years we have known that the black and whites stripes on a zebra's body were a vital deterrent to horseflies.

But scientists think that the stripes may also protect humans from the blood-sucking insects.

Many of the indigenous tribes in Africa, Australia and Papua New Guinea who paint stripes on their bodies also live in places where horseflies are widespread.

The stripes are for decoration, emotional expression or as markers of identity or group affiliation but maybe they also know something about repelling insects that the rest of the world did not.

Studies indicate that people born in the first two months of the year often go on to pursue desirable careers.

Having your birthday in January or February isn't necessarily the ideal time as the weather tends to be a bit cold and miserable.

Researchers randomly selected from people of different walks of life, including politicians, scientists, authors, sports icons, singers, actors, and celebrities from history and from the current time.

Starting with a sample size of 100 and increasing to 200 and then 300, researchers found Aquarius to be the zodiac when most of the celebrities are born.
