Small living quarters have never looked quite so appealing as this charming little box house. The POD-Indawo is a prefabricated home that has been developed by a team of designers and architects based in Johannesburg.

QWerky Tastebud Insurance

It’s not unheard of for people to insure their most valuable assets, and if it’s vital to their career then it is probably a smart move. Heidi Klum famously insured her long legs for $2m back in 2004, and Dolly Parton has insured her, ahem, most famous assets for $300,000. Apparently it’s not just those […]

QWerky Bio-Bus

This is a less-than-sanitary subject to broach, so we’ll keep our descriptive text to a minimum here. As a precautionary measure, maybe you’d like to put your sandwich down before you continue reading…

Done? Good. Well re-usable energy is always a hot topic these days. We are living in a world that is more environmentally-conscious than it […]

You may have read recently than insects are being hailed as a nutritious, environmentally friendly substitute to the staple meats that we generally serve for dinner.

QWerky Wedding Cheese Cakes

There’s an old saying that goes: ‘the most important aspect of any wedding is a good cake’. In actual fact, it is less of a saying and more what goes through my mind when a wedding invite comes through the letterbox. A good buffet comes a close second!

There is no denying that wedding cakes are impressive […]

QWerky British Problems

Not hearing someone for the third time, so just laughing and hoping for the best

— VeryBritishProblems (@SoVeryBritish) April 4, 2014

Vintage Ice Cream Van

Everybody, no matter who they are, loves an ice cream van. There’s a certain magic to the jingle of the music as it comes around the corner – we find ourselves instantly reminiscent of hot summer days, grass stains on our elbows and childhood excitement. Sure, a 99 flake doesn’t cost 99p anymore (why, cruel world?!) […]

QWerky Vacuum Experiment

What falls faster – a bowling ball or a feather?

It seems like a fairly obvious answer, and I’m sure you would not be surprised, if you dropped both items from the roof of your house, to see the heavy bowling ball plummet to the ground far quicker than the dainty feather. I’m also sure that your mum, dad or […]
