An attempt by Nigeria’s president to reassure his countrymen that he is alive, and wasn’t replaced by an impostor during a long medical leave, failed to convince everyone because that’s exactly what a clone would say, isn’t it?

This Moonshine Tastes Like Thanksgiving in a Bottle … But It's From the UK

It was the bottle that caught my eye as I strolled into a Welsh liquor store: slender, topped with a wax-stopper.

Countries Are Dead, So It's Time to Think Differently

OZY has spent the last nine months reporting from every country on earth for our Around the World project, and we’ve noticed something surprising: “Countries” don’t really mean as much as they once did.

Star Wars 9 leak: Luke and ANAKIN scene revealed and it's NOT a flashback?

Fans have been waiting to see Anakin Skywalker again ever since the final trilogy was announced. Darth Vader made a shock return in Rogue One but this has always been the Skywalker saga, so it is fitting that Anakin Skywalker be there at the end.

Journalist explains why US doesn't need hackers to control the world, and it's hard to disagree

‘Russian hackers’ have become the go-to bogeymen for Washington. There’s little mention of American hackers though – probably because they aren’t needed, since most of the internet is a branch of US intelligence.
