EVERYONE is talking about Netflix's new episode of their hit dystopian show, Black Mirror. To be honest, we can't forget it, because it's so damn INTENSE.

Bandersnatch is an interactive feature which clocks up over an hour-and-a-half of pure, unadulterated MADNESS where the viewer makes choices on behalf of the protagonist.

Each choice which we make influences the future and fate of Stefan, a computer programmer who is creating his own version of Bandersnatch as a game in 1984.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Everything but make it Bandersnatch

A post shared by Netflix US (@netflix) on

Writer Charlie Brooker must have almost gone insane himself writing all ten endings; the episode is so tangled and complex that the audience themselves feel complicit in every horrible thing which ensues.

Whether it's choosing methods of murder, the music which Stefan listens to or even just his cereal preference, we are in control of him and boy is it a RUSH.

The reactions online, predictably, have been absolutely hilarious. Here are some of the gems which we dug up after we un-shook ourselves (it took some time and whiskey TBH)…

Shocked Oh My God GIF

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.

1. Those of us who enjoyed controlling Stefan a lil bit too much:

 2. Our tangled minds trying to comprehend reality:

3. Will Poulter's EYEBROWS?

4. The shock we felt when our decisions had actual consequences…

5. The whole dad debacle. I mean, no words needed.

6. Those CRAZY folk who decided to watch Bandersnatch and Bird Box on the same day, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING:

7.  Those tough, tough choices re: breakfast though:

8. Let's face it, we all chose for Colin to jump rather than Stefan and then felt guilty didn't we:

9. We don't even know how to explain this one:

10. When Colin was the SPITTING IMAGE of Sid from Toy Story, except blonde:

11. Poor Stefan trying his best to understand us:

12. Why murder was easier than deciding cereal?

13. We're all evil.

14. When we chose a computer game over a 19-year-old boy's sanity:

15. We got banderSCALPED.

16. We couldn't live without finding out those endings, mmkay?

17. We became sub-human:

18. Our own mental health was simply compromised:

19.  We all wanted Stefan to succeed, didn't we?

20.  The whole Colin-Stefan relationship was warped AF:

21. Finally, who else was attracted to either Colin or Stefan??

The show has ruined us completely. 

Good luck to anyone who managed to watch the full thing, as well as finding out each (mind-boggling, usually tragic) ending.

We need to go lie down, the world is SPINNING.

Feverous Black Friday shoppers are HELLA p*ssed off as they are being forced to wait HOURS in online store queues.

Customers are being forced into virtual lines on store websites, yet retailers are claiming this was all properly planned… eh, what?

One man shared a screenshot on Twitter of his queue number: 107578th in line. Good God, people, this is utter madness.

It's fair to say that the eager online population are sufficiently angry, with complaints coming in left, right and centre for numerous brands, such as Debenhams.

A Debenhams spokesperson claimed that the system was "managed" and that customers have all been successful with their shopping experiences:

"Some customers experienced a short delay in accessing our website at peak hours last night."

"By implementing a managed 'queue system' we were able to ensure that once customers had accessed our site, they were all able shop the offers successfully."

Reports of thousands of websites crashing are also gaining traction on Twitter, it seems that online stores were hugely unprepared for the onslaught of consumerism which Black Friday brings:

Sky News were told by Game:

"Due to the volume of traffic to our site we are operating a queuing system to make it as fair as possible to our customers in getting the deals they want."

However, stores this morning on the high street were experiencing regular volumes of customers, with no queues in sight. It seems online shopping has officially taken over:

Remember gals, Black Friday is a massive marketing campaign, so try to resist the mania surrounding it.

Use deals websites to spot the best discounts, ask yourself if you really need the items and don't assume that just because it's on sale, it's a bargain.

Economically and environmentally conscious shopping needs to be a priority with the massive amounts of clothes going to waste.

Stay strong gals, resist the urge.

If you can't resist, we hope you get through the online queue hysteria at least.

Now, I don't know about you, but when it comes to nights out, Disney is my ultimate pre-drink jam. 

No seriously. Two G&Ts is all it takes for me to start belting out A Whole New World at the top of my lungs, so you can only imagine my delight when I found out Hasbro had basically packaged this concept in the form of a shiny board game! 

The Disney Song Challenge is designed test hardcore fans on their singings, lyrical and all-round Disney expertise. 

Sounds pretty amazing, right? Here's how it all goes down. 

Players pick a card from a deck, which, when flipped over, will reveal the name of a Disney movie or TV show. 

Now, this is where it all gets a little messy. 

After the card is revealed, it is then up to all players to fight for the win, as the first person to jump up and sing a song from the production will win the card. 

But wait, there's more.

If your overly-confident self manages to mess up the tune, you'll then be tasked with spinning the Wheel of Fun-sequences, and preform a silly action. 

Some of these include, 'laugh like a villain', or 'reenact the Lady and the Tramp spaghetti scene' – which, when the drinks are flowing, will surely be a bit of a laugh. 

The first player who manages to collect five cards wins. Each set is priced at £29.99 and is available to purchase from Amazon

The Internet has provided us with so many optical illusions in recent months it’s hard to remember what worries we had before Twitter began to torment us.

But – as was seen with the dress that broke the Internet – it’s often the most simple illusions which cause us humans the most bother.

In the box below there’s a white grid covered in grey lines – OK so that much is obvious – but sitting upon those grey lines are TWELVE little black dots.

Now you probably think we’re raving but as you look around the box you’ll begin to see dots you hadn’t seen before, but as you find those new dots the original dots which caught your eye will probably disappear.

According to Cosmopolitan and the guy who kicked off this latest round of torture, your brain simply will not allow you to see all of the dots at once.

So before you really do spend your entire night chasing dots, have one last glance and accept that some mysteries are just not meant to be solved.

Nicki Minaj has just reported that she is going to follow in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian and produce a new mobile game. 

Ever since Kim somehow managed to add mobile app entreprenuer to her CV, there has been a seriously long line of celebrities wanting to get in on a bit of the action… not to mention cold, hard cash.

And this week, it was announced that Nicki is the new face of developer Glu's forthcoming celebrity-focused game, which is said to include her likeness, voice and creative direction. 

Glu's CEO Niccolo de Masi said in a statement: "I am thrilled to welcome the undisputed queen of hip-hop, Nicki Minaj to Glu's growing list of celebrity partners".

Kim Kardahsian posted a very intriguing Instagram photo last night of her sitting in front of a microphone in a studio, and we would have thought her next project was something music related (she is married to Kanye after all) had it not been for the hashtag #KimKardashianGame!

The reality star hasn’t given any details about the game, but she did post a cartoon image of herself on a red carpet with the title ‘Kim Kardashian Hollywood’, so we can only assume it is going to give us the opportunity to actually BE Kim Kardashian in a virtual world.

We really didn’t think the famous for being famous star had any more money making tricks up her sleeve, and we have to say, we’re impressed.
