Question of the Week
More Terrible Hotels
Actually paid to sleep somewhere that turned out to be less compfy, private or clean than the bench in the park outside? Tell us all about it.

Or perhaps you'd like to boast about getting upgraded to a sea-view suite next door to Stevie Wonder, like my colleague keeps doing? Over and over...

Question of the Week
More nice things
Whoah. Where did those two weeks go? Normal service resumed

What is the nicest thing someone's done for you? Whether you thoroughly deserved it or it came out of the blue, tell us of heartwarming, selfless acts by others.

Failing that, what nice things have you done for other people, whether they liked it or not?

Smoking is dropping out of fashion, so that probably means it's cool again.

Spend the week coughing up pictures that show how awesome this deadly habit is.

Question of the Week
Weddings Part II
Attending a wedding is like being handed a licence to act like a twat. Oh how I laughed when I sobered up and realised I'd nicked most of the plates and cutlery from the posh hotel lunch and those vague memories of stealthily exiting like a cat-burglar had in fact involved falling out of the hotel, knives and forks clattering onto the steps.

Tell us more of your wedding stories.

B3ta newsletter issue number six hundred and forty two... Would it be cool if we just started the numbers back again from zero? It's a bit scary. Anyway, quality stuff this week includes taking the piss out of Cameron Carpenter, taking the geotags out of your data and taking potshots at a hapless conductor in a game inexplicably based on the 1812 Overture.

Question of the Week
Control Freaks
Peej writes, "My mate Tony's dad used to weigh the breakfast cereal in the morning to make sure everybody got an equal amount and the pack provided the exact amount of servings advertised on the packet. I learned from this that the recommended serving size on a cereal packet isn't enough to feed a sparrow."

Sound familiar? Tell us more.

Question of the Week
Silly Achievements
Happy Phantom writes, "Sometimes - by planning or happy accident - you achieve something with which you are quite pleased, but which makes little or no difference to the rest of the world.

"This morning, I woke up and spontaneously farted the opening three notes from The Frog Chorus."

We're combining two of our favourite things again, cakes and films. Add Victoria Sponges, eclairs and Jaffa cakes to famous film scenes, adapt plots to be about baking and maybe re-enact some in your local Greggs.

Question of the Week
Ages ago Danishbacon suggested we ask about nepotism. As we weren't related, we ignored this.
Tell us your worst examples, or admit to the time you employed your cousin and he totally fucked the job up.

Take a trip back in time to when men wore big hats, ladies wore massive skirts and people took photos of their dead children. It's Victorians this week, so lets visit their world of early photography and give it the photoshop treatment.
