10 Incredible Camouflaged Animals
Whether it’s a humble stick insect hiding amongst the undergrowth, or a leopard stalking its prey in the jungle, the animal kingdom is alive with amazing examples of camouflage.

10 Films That Are Stranger Than Fiction
As you might have read yesterday, our film editor Jason Bailey anointed Ben Affleck’s Argo as his film of the week. If you’re not familiar with the film, we won’t spoil too much of it, save to say that it’s based a true story — the sort of story that you wouldn’t believe if it wasn’t true.
