The game is not called risk though and this video by Business Insider highlights some key elements of the maths involved to give you the edge. Watch it and challenge your long time monopoly nemesis to a rematch, if not go straight to jail!

Happy 102nd Birthday

Life was tough in 1913, the world was about to go to war and few would have thought a baby born then would live to celebrate with a hit video on YouTube, but that is exactly what Aunt Lou Lou is doing.

Who knew this was how to tie your running shoe

For many years, that second hole for a shoe lace on your running shoe has languished in obscurity.

Two things are guaranteed, if you have not noticed that other hole, you will look and if it is there, you will try the lace lock.
