  • You will soon be able to live out every Beatles fan’s dream: an opportunity to sit down and share a meal with Sir Paul McCartney. The catch? Your meal will actually be so many pixels on a computer screen. The Guardian reports, “In honor of World Environment Day, users will be able to log on to Paul McCartney’s website,, and then, after donating a minimum of $25 (£12) to Adopt-A-Minefield, gain access to McCartney’s online dining table. Of course, in this case ‘virtual dinner’ is a euphemism for ‘an MP3 file and some recipes’, but don’t let that get you down.” Well, I guess that means you can chew with your mouth open to your heart’s delight.
