In this excerpt from Nicholas Shaxson’s book Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men Who Stole the World, we learn how the Bank of England has actively worked against the British government by aiding tax evaders and has simultaneously driven impoverished African nations deeper into poverty by stealing their tax revenue.

!! OMG, what?! British straight men kiss !!

More-men-are-openly-kissi-007.jpg
Straight guys crowding around two girls making out in a bar surprises no one these days, at least in America. Supposedly, the straighties get off on this sort of thing. But a new study out of the UK shows that British straight men frequently lock lips themselves — which is surprising.
Eric Anderson, a sociology lecturer at Bath University, explained to the Guardian why he began the study: “I started going through my students’ Facebook profiles, with their permission, and was inundated with hundreds of photos of men kissing on their nights out.”
Anderson found that 89% of the polled men were happy to kiss another man on the lips and almost 40% had engaged in “sustained kissing, initially for shock value, but now just for ‘a laugh’.” Anderson, who is 43, gay and grew up in America, said the results reflect the changing attitude toward homophobia on college campuses. Looks like we need to send our straight dudes across the pond for a little training.

!! OMG, sinful: International Draw Jesus Day !!

Mmmm, Jesus, have you been working out? It’s a good thing he’s got perma-abs, because on Dec. 26, Jesus will be posing for countless contributions to International Draw Jesus Day. The team at Hyperallergic — an art blogazine — devised the event in response to the Smithsonian’s much-publicized removal of David Wojnarowicz‘s video from its Hide/Seek exhibit earlier this month.
The video shows insects crawling over a crucifix, which the Republican party found offensive and pressured the institute to remove. But don’t just stop at bugs for Jesus’ big portrait. Hyperallergic says, “Bring it artists, we will show whatever you send us and NSFW is perfectly fine. Forget the people who want to censor our lives and art and long live freedom of expression!”

!! OMG, she proved her point: Underwear-clad traveler !!

After being pulled aside by security due to some “nitrates” found on her body (which, for the record could be caused by washing with glycerin soap) and questioned so long that she missed her flight to Phoenix, wheelchair-bound passenger Tammy Banovac decided to make a statement when she came back the next day.
She arrived at the airport wearing only her bra and panties with a trenchcoat on top. At security, the trenchcoat went into the tray and things got uncomfortable for everyone. Can I add that 52-year-old Tammy also looked fantastic in her underwear?
