Whizz! Bang! No, not BoJo’s pillow talk, but the sound of millions of home explosives polluting the sky and making pets’ insides go gooey. With the annual Guy Fawkes celebration now behind us, we ask if it might be time to ban yet another thing that’s fun.

Also this week, seismic news in fracking world: it’s actually been banned in England! We pause to celebrate this epic win, and thank the people who made it happen.
