Another week, another Friday Review – this one has flown by! There’s not as much here as normal, but with good reason: this week I’ve written not one but TWO reviews, plus I’m on my second draft of my first short story (at the moment it’s not even that short). Anyway, onto the week…
This week the new Incredibles 2 trailer came out… I’m probably more excited about this than a grown man should be:
Whilst we’re talking videos, have you seen this Nike advert yet? I imagine if you live outside London you’re thinking yuck. But I’ve quite enjoyed it anyway, though I’m by no means a #LONDONER
What. Is. This?
Speaking of London… here’s a creepy event that’s been well marketed in Black Mirror-style. “Danger of acute death“… coming soon:
Jobs at Dyson
Dyson are building an electric car with a production date of 2020. They have a raft of new jobs available, so if you’re happy to move to sleepy little Malmsbury then check it out on LinkedIn.

A company has broken breakfast by making gin and tonic marmalade. I particularly like this from their description:
Goes very well in a cucumber sandwich
Won’t give you a crippling hangover
The company also do a drink called Unicorn Tears – but I think it’s just gin with sparkly bits in it.
Bonkers lawyer photos
As part of my job at Overture, I take professional portrait photos of lawyers for their websites. I came across this irreverent section on the Roll on Friday website which pokes fun at what they call ‘bonkers lawyer photos’ – the captions are priceless!
That’s just a tiny sample, here’s all of them: Bonkers lawyers

Ridiculous quantum computer cooling nerd-out:
The cooling/support structure for IBM's 50 qubit quantum computer. Top level cools to 4 kelvin (-269 celsius); the shiny bit at the bottom w the chip inside reaches 10 millikelvin, colder than outer space. The superconducting data lines have loops so they can shrink when cooled. pic.twitter.com/11anu6KugZ
