Next time you complain to HR about your workspace being too dangerous because of that loose floorboard – you know, the one Janet tripped over the other day – take a second and put yourself in the shoes of Wang De in the Nunquan village of China. De is a master of the ancient art of Da Shuhua, a tradition that goes back 500 years that basically consists of throwing molten metal against a wall so that it explodes in a shower of sparks. The tradition came about as a way of creating fireworks for cheap, and despite certain advances in fire-safety over the past 500 years, De still wears the same traditional clothes made of cotton and sheepskin while he chucks about liquid metal at temperatures of 1,600°C, in order to keep the closely guarded tradition authentic. Makes all those health and safety courses feel a bit lame now doesn’t it?

Food delivery app Just Eat’s World Cup advert is a weird one – we see the legendary John Barnes (known for his multiple goals for England, but let’s face it, more for his verse on New Order’s World In Motion), sat watching the telly, seemingly fine with the fact that the people around him keep licking his head and face. It turns out that Just Eat is releasing a limited edition series of World Cup plates, featuring the faces of legends of the competition from a host of different countries. The tagline of “Lick a Legend” makes sense to us now, but it’s still pretty weird let’s be honest.
