I Tried Five Tactics to Get Guys to Leave Me Alone in the Club

Let me describe a scene every woman I know is painfully familiar with. You're in a bar, three drinks in, sidestepping abandoned plastic cups and men who've decided it's a good idea to wear a "casual waistcoat" into the real world, when a guy with brewery breath comes up behind you. If you're lucky, he'll choose not to touch you before saying hello. More likely, though: he'll snake his arm around your waist. If you're really lucky: that man – whose face you haven't even seen yet – will just stra

The Navy Says UFOs Are Real. UFO Hunters Are Thrilled

MJ Banias is the author of The UFO People: A Curious Culture. With the Navy's recent revelation that its pilots have been regularly spotting unidentified flying objects, some of those in the UFO community who were once thought crazy now have some concrete evidence to point to. And the regular spate of mainstream news stories about UFO sightings has inspired a new generation of UFO hunters and researchers. I'm regularly asked why I, a 32-year-old man with a good job and a young family spent s

I Asked My Exes to Review Me

The author with one of her exes. It's 3AM and you can't sleep. Your mind wanders through the many horrors you've inflicted upon yourself with your own body and mouth: that time you misread a fist-bump scenario and shook the other person's knuckles rather than pounding them. The time you tried to thank a school crush for holding the door open for you, but instead let out a sort of alarming guttural scream? Every single time you've cracked your back at work and looked up to see Nice Susan wincing

These Photos Celebrate the Strength and Endurance of Indigenous Women

Liliana Merizalde’s circuitous journey to photography involved four degrees in three different cities. Her initial ambition was to go into filmmaking, but she took a detour into photography and stayed. “I’d taken photos since I was 17,” she tells Broadly, “but I would never have called myself a photographer.” She moved from Bogotá, a city alive with what she describes as “our typical Latin American chaos,” to Madrid, then Barcelona, pursuing a degree in each city before returning to her native

These Items Represent the Extinction Rebellion Protests

Today at 5PM, Extinction Rebellion are calling their big London shutdown to a close. For the past week-and-a-bit, the radical climate change protesters have been camped out throughout the city, shutting down Oxford Circus, Waterloo Bridge, Parliament Square and Marble Arch with their huge pink boat, their trucks, their hay bales and their bikes, to the ire of anyone with a Spectator subscription. But for now, that's all coming to a close. In a statement, the group said: "We will leave the physi

We Live in a Splinter Dimension From the 80s, Says This Guy

It’s Tuesday afternoon and I’m in Melbourne with a guy named Louie Veleski who is approaching strangers on the street and asking them to complete a “memory quiz.” Most give him a strange look and say they’ll pass, but a surprising number agree, even though Louie offers only the barest explanation of what a memory quiz is, or why he’s offering them.

Portraits of Women Inside Russia’s Modern Gulags

Elena Anosova spent her teenage years in a Russian boarding school and found it a formative experience. "It was a sheltered institution with its own hierarchy and rules," she says of the memory. A universe of its own, with no private space or security and with its own social norms. And it was growing up in this environment that made Elena interested in closed all-female microcosms, which is how she arrived at female prison colonies. Russia has a long history of using both female and male prison

Meet the Scientist Planning to Blast Space Junk out of Orbit With Lasers

Image of Craig supplied. Digital image of space junk courtesy of Miguel-Soares via wikimedia Since the Soviet Union launched Sputnik into orbit in 1957, humanity has been slowly clogging our exosphere with junk. From decommissioned satellites, to fragments of destroyed rocket boosters, everything that gets discarded in orbit either falls to earth or just stays in orbit—which is why Earth is now circled by some 900,000 individual pieces of garbage. For any government or private company trying to
