Caption : Benedict Cumberbatch measures up for a Madame Tussauds wax figure, Britain - 21 Jun 2014
MANDATORY CREDIT: Tussauds. Just days after his thirty eighth birthday and hot on the heels of an Emmy nomination for his role in Sherlock, Madame Tussauds London announces that one of the most exciting and talked about acting talents of his generation, Benedict Cumberbatch, will be honoured with a wax figure at the world famous attraction later this year. Benedict’s figure will be ‘premiere ready’, showing the actor looking impeccably groomed in a stylish dark suit. Work on the figure is well underway, and the actor has been heavily involved with the creation process. Benedict has given two sittings for Madame Tussauds London’s talented studios team, during which hundreds of precise measurements and numerous photographs were captured to be used by the sculptors and artists. “Finally I can photobomb myself!” joked Cumberbatch. “What a weird and wonderful compliment to be included in the ranks of talent already committed to wax. I’ve been accused of being wooden in my work but never waxy!

Cry for me, Argentina


Just so you know, we’ve been waiting the entire tournament to use that headline. But Argentina just kept on winning, and we had to bide our time (for the record, if Germany had lost we had “So Klose, and yet so far” ready to go).

We don’t need to recap what happened; you all know by now. So without further ado, we present the sad footballers of Argentina.

"This is the saddest Abbey Road tribute photo we’ve ever seen."


…denn wenn dort z.B. steht “Vorbereitungszeit: 10 Minuten, Kochzeit: 15 Minuten”, dann rechnen sie nie die tatsächlichen Variablen mit ein:

"vorher dreckiges Geschirr wegräumen/abspülen: 15 Minuten, Arbeitsplatten reinigen: 3 Minuten, Cerankochfeld reinigen: 3 Minuten, übervollen Mülleimer rausbringen und leeren Beutel nachfüllen: 4 Minuten, richtige Musik zum Kochen auswählen: 10 Minuten, Zutaten für das Rezept in der Küche finden: 10 Minuten, überlegen was man statt der vorgeschriebenen Zutaten nehmen kann: 10 Minuten, undsoweiter…

Zum Schluss steht man für ein 5-Minuten-Gericht wieder 2 Stunden in der Küche und fragt sich wieso? Jetzt weiss man, warum…
