• Klopp surgery, 10,000-strong mutiny leave Reds rocking

    Liverpool shrugged off the embarrassing spectacle of over 10,000 protesting fans walking out of Anfield on Saturday as Sunderland battled back for a 2-2 draw. On the day that coach Jurgen Klopp was forced to miss the match to have his appendix removed, Liverpool suffered more acute pain as they surrendered a two-goal lead just after around a quarter of the 44,000 fans inside the ground stormed out in a row over ticket prices. "The players were not affected (by the walkout)," insisted Liverpool's development coach Pepijn Lijnders who faced the media in the absence of Klopp.

There was no immediate confirmation that the final stage of the satellite-bearing rocket had successfully achieved orbit, and an unconfirmed report from South Korea's Yonhap news agency suggested the second stage may have malfunctioned.

  • Seriously? That Ancient Greek Statue Does Not Depict a Laptop

    There's a new conspiracy theory out there, but instead of invoking big government or aliens, it questions whether there's a laptop carved into an ancient Greek statue. The theory, proposed by the anonymous YouTube user StillSpeakingOut, ventures that the ancient Oracle of Delphi may have foreseen the invention of laptops, and told people about it. "Just so we are clear, I'm not saying that this relief was depicting an ancient laptop computer," StillSpeakingOut said in the 100-second-long video.
