UK is a surveillance state
BBC | Submitted by: Soylent
One of the things a foreigner notices about London is there are cameras fucking everywhere. There are numerous places that have two or three dozen cameras pointing in all directions. In fact, about 10 percent of closed circuit surveillance cameras are in the UK, and certainly more out in public than anywhere else in the world. Does it work?

Jewish Hitler Passport discovered
BBC | Submitted by: Soylent
British Intelligence made a false passport for Hitler during WWII, which was recently made an exhibit at the Public Records Office in London. "No clue is given as to why the fake Hitler passport was created - it could have been a joke, or part of a plan to spread disinformation.

KISS vs NPR
New York Post | Submitted by: Soylent
"Gross: I'd like to think the personality you presented on our show today is a persona that you've affected as a member of KISS, but that you're not nearly as obnoxious when you're at home or with friends.
