What’s sexier than Burt Reynolds? How about a nude Burt Reynolds on a delicious eclair? It’s like a hairy and sweet dream. This tasty treat is a creation of Lou Lou P’s Delights in Leeds and features not just any iconic image of Burt Reynolds, but his famous Cosmopolitan centerfold from the 70s.

By the way, that centerfold pretty much made Burt into a household name and launched Cosmo into a whole new realm of women’s publishing. You can learn more about the infamous photo in this great BBC article, but personally, I’d rather just eat Lou Lou P’s eclair.

You probably thought Breaking Bad was the story of a chemistry teacher who turns to cooking meth in order to provide for his family after he dies from cancer. As it turns out though, the show was really just a really dark Malcolm in the Middle spin off show.

Which 2013 tablet is the best for gaming?

If you are looking for the best all-round tablet for gaming and you want it at a reasonable price, then you can’t really go wrong with a Google Nexus 7. The latest 2013 version of course.

With a price tag just shy of £200, this has to be the best buy on the market. It is more than you need in terms of power and resolution for Angry Birds Space type games and for online casino games such as backgammon and slots at sites like www.jackpotcity.co.uk/online-slots/, but its 1.5 GHz quad core processor means that it has enough power to handle just about any game on the market. Even the more demanding console type MMGs.

If you enjoy playing more cerebral games, for instance Chess, then it really is the perfect companion. For instance, if you use one of the top chess apps, such as Droid Fish, then you can even select the number of cores the tablet will use when it plays against you. Select all four and the Nexus will play at Grand Master level with an eco rating of well over 2,500.

Although it has only a seven inch display, in terms of resolution it is equivalent to the best 10 inch tablets providing full HD with a pixel count of 1920 x 1200. Sound is also an important feature of gaming, and the sound on most tablets is fairly disappointing and means that you have to wear earphones or connect it to an external sound system. However the speakers on the Nexus are very good, probably better than on any other tablet. The 5.1 sound system can even fill a small room and there is no sign of distortion even on maximum volume.

The nexus also supports a full HDMI dongle, so it is easy to use it to play games on your HDTV.
