Danish comedian Sofie Hagen, who taught herself English to get herself close to Westlife, winner of the Edinburgh Fringe Newcomer prize, and co-host of The Guilty Feminist, donates the manifesto by film directors Lars von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg that resulted in Dogme 95. Rules include no special effects, all filming was on location, and the director could not be credited. 35 films got a Dogme 95 certificate.
Jon Ablett, the curator of mollusca and cephalopoda at the Natural History Museum responsible for over seven million specimens of snails, slugs and octopuses, provides the museum with a snail glued to a board.

Kate Fox, a social anthropologist, author of Watching the English, and a woman who admits to lying to getting honest answers from people, and found out that 80% of English people apologise when someone else bumps into them, offers up some stone age selfies: namely, handprint paintings. They were thought to have been made by blowing paint while put your hand against the wall.
