9 Things That Blew Our Minds In 2018 So Far...
  • Can you believe how fast this year has gone? We've only just remembered to stop writing 2017 at the top of our school books and we're already knee deep into 2018. But, WOW—what a year it's been so far. 
    We've whittled the many happenings of this year down to a list of nine things that has collectively blown our tiny little minds at Dust and Things so far.

    1. SpaceX

    Elon Musk, a real life Iron Man (and Dust and Things founder Mike's man-crush) has achieved some pretty spectacular things in his time. From creating PayPal, to making pioneering electric cars under Tesla Motors... he's only gone and launched a rocket called Falcon Heavy in into Space! Not only has Musk launched a rocket into space, he's also included a dummy called Starman in a Tesla Roadster that'll be flying through space and en-route to orbit Mars eventually. Madness. What a time to be alive. While you're waiting for it to travel to Mars, enjoy this spectular video of the launch:




    2. Meghan Markle receives SAS training

    How crazy is this development? Our future duchess and fiance to the total hero that is Prince Harry has undergone brief SAS training in Herefordshire in preparation for a potential terrorist attack or kidnapping (woah!). We. Are. Shook! What do you think about this? Is it too far or are we taking the right precautions? We sincerely hope it never, ever comes to that.

    3. The Beast From The East & Storm Emma

    Where do we start with this? First we were teased with a dusting of sleet and low and behold, there was a national shortage of bread and milk. The country and halted to a stand-still before a snow-day was even on the cards. Then. Then the snow came. While it was *awesome*, it sure did get in the way of things. That's where the un-sung hero's of Storm Emma came in and it really did blow our minds. Tony Ash from East Kilbride battled his way through the treacherous snow during the red alert in his 4x4 Land Rover Defender for 14 hours helping NHS staff get to and from work. Someone give that guy a pat on the back!

    4. A homeless charity in Cardiff has installed an on-street contactless donation wall

    The future has arrived! This has really put a smile on our face as it means shoppers and passers by can quickly whip out their phones and wallets to donate £2—and it requires very little effort. GiveDIFFerently has popped up in the Hayes (St Davids 2) until March 26th so if you're in the area, pop along and do your bit to help combat homelessness in Cardiff. Or you can Text DIFF20 and your donation to 70070. e.g. to donate a fiver text DIFF20 £5.

    5. STOP RIGHT NOW - THANK-YOU VERY MUCH! THE SPICE GIRLS ARE REFORMING (sort of...)!

    The 2nd of February will forever be remembered as the greatest day in history. Yes, you'd know even if we didn't have to mention it... the Spice Girls are BACK! Geri posted this image which sent the nation into a speculation circus. Millennial's around the world rejoiced and jumped for joy at this potential news, including every-one in this office. GIRL POWER! Let us know who was your favourite Spice Girl!

    6. A majestic snowy owl was captured by a traffic camera in Montreal

    This gorgeous Canadian bird was caught on a motorway camera while trying to find a perch to sit upon. Little did this Owl know that an innocent fly through his own back garden would result in such a lovely image.

    7. The word 'Hangry' has been added to the Oxford Dictionary

    FINALLY! The feeling of being hangry has been given the recognition it deserves. Let's face it, we've all been there. For the moments where you can't bare speaking, never mind looking at your other half because you're absolutely ravenous--it's been confirmed, you're hangry. We've been campaigning for hangry people for a few years now and we have seemed to fix the hangry-ness in peoples lives with their very own chopping board. Buy it in wood here and in slate here.





    8. Doping at the Olympics in... Curling.

    Yes. Curling. Now, it's not uncommon to hear of doping in the Olympics after the majority of the Russian Olympic team were found guilty of state sponsored doping.. but Curling?! We find this so bizarre.

    9. The peculiarity of Stephen Hawkins passing

    It was announced by Professor Hawkins family that he had sadly passed away on the 14th March. While we remembered his amazing achievements, it was noticed by Twitter users that there was significance to the timing of his passing.
    He died on Pi Day (3.14 = 14th March), it's Albert Einstein's birthday and Hawking was born on the 300th anniversary of Galileo’s death. The cosmos is cosmic as hell!

      My boyfriend that left me a few months ago just came back to me last night crying for me to take him back. After a 3 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started seeing him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he loved me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But I couldn’t stop thinking about him so I decided to go online and I saw so many good talks about this spell caster and I contacted him and explained my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me. and After 2days, my boyfriend came back to me and started begging me to forgive him. We moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and now have been married happily with a son. Ever since this caster helped me, my husband is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.
      Here his contact.

      I read so many articles about Dr Ozigidon, how he has helped people with his powerful spell to reunite with their lost love after many years of break up. I contacted Dr Ozigidon to help me restore my divorced marriage after 5 years of divorced I still love my husband and want to be with him again. My husband divorced me because I was a barren woman of 43 years. After 17 years of marriage I could not give my husband a child, I appreciated him because he was patient with me for many years. I explained all my problems to Dr Ozigidon and he promised to help me if I am serious minded and willing to trust him. I trust Dr Ozigidon because I have heard so much about his powers. Just within 72 hours of casting the spell, my husband called me after 5 years of no contact. He told me he had been thinking about me for the last 48 hours and he wants us to come back and remarry. Thank God I trusted Dr Ozigidon to help me bring my ex husband back and he also helped me with my fertility problem. My marriage is back and I am a few months pregnant. You can reach him via Email: drozigidonhenz.spell.net@gmail.com . I thank him for his kindness.

      ADVICE TO SAVE YOUR MARRIAGE AND GET YOUR EX BOYFRIEND / GIRLFRIEND BACK CONTACT +1(424)-261-8520 FOR URGENT EFFECTIVE LOVE SPELL TO GET YOUR EX LOVER BACK OR SAVE YOUR MARRIAGE FAST AND HIS RESULT IS 100% GUARANTEE.

      My name is Jeffery Lerman.. i want to give thanks to Dr.Larry for bringing back my ex Wife. No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like this, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker) that Trust is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person, It was one of the best things I have ever done. My love life was in shambles; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn’t face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my Wife didn’t seem to care. and She broke up with me again. I was confused and did not know what to do again, rather than to get in contact with Dr.Larry . He did a love spell that made my Wife come back to me. We are now very much happy with ourselves. Dr.Larry makes her realize how much we love and need each other. This man is for REAL and for good. He can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my Wife back! It was like a miracle! She suddenly wanted to go to marriage counseling, and we’re doing very, very well, in our love life.
