In this galaxy, millions of human beings believe they’re the hugest Star Wars fan out there.

My brother is one of them. I grew up in a home where May the 4th is a bank holiday, and dogs go by the name of Chewie. …

There’s nothing romantic about the retirement of spaceships.

At the end of their working years, these majestic creatures turn into collectibles.

They land a spot in a museum or in a research facility. Worst case scenario: they get auctioned.

I know what you’re thinking. Everbody watched Money Heist/La Casa de Papel, right? Dalì’s masks — featuring his peculiar mustaches — even became a popular carnival costume.

Naomi Osaka is a tennis champion and a young adult who is struggling with her self-worth and mental health. She’s open about it and she’s trying to change…

10. The one that tried and kiss me; then when I stopped him, said: “That was the right move, you’re not my type”.
