Bet I know what Madonna was most thankful for this year: that she won’t be spending out her years in a Russian prison. St Petersburg officials have dropped charges against the pop star for violating the city’s homophobic censorship ban during an August tour performance. And the Madonna effect has apparently been wide-reaching — lawmakers in Moscow have also vetoed a proposed anti-gay bill in their city. Johnny Weir, for one, should certainly be pleased.

“Their Royal Highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner. Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them.”

— A statement from St. James Palace about Closer Magazine‘s choice to publish shots of Kate Middleton‘s nipples, prompting the royals to file a lawsuit that will be heard in France on Monday

!! OMG, no, not from IKEA: Two Swedes reinvent the helmet !!

This is one of those moments when you realize you’re looking at the future. Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin are the two Swedish design students who invited Hovding (the Swedish word for chiefdom), which is an inflatable helmet worn around the neck. And while it’s only in development as a bike helmet now, the implications for this kind of technology are exponential. Not bad news for Haupt and Alstin’s bank accounts. Or as their professor put it, “You’re going to be millionaires.” Check out the video below for more.

(Thanks, Kevin!)

!! OMG, whomp whomp: Israeli ‘gay soldier’ photo was staged !!

Turns out that photo everyone made such a fuss over showing two gay Israeli soldiers holding hands — which the Israeli Defense Force posted on Facebook — was a fake. The Times of Israel reports that two members of the force’s PR department staged the shot, and only one of them was even gay. Still though, thanks for supporting pride month, army guys.
