Wafaa Bilal Gets Camera Implanted in Head, Removed

Last year, Wafaa Bilal, a fine arts professor from New York University, had a camera implanted in the back of his head. This was a genuine scientific attempt at making the camera integrate with the flesh on his head. Well-known for his interactive and performance pieces, Bilal made the decision to get the implant as ‘an allegorical statement about the things we don’t see and leave behind.’ Not surprisingly, his body rejected the camera, and it has had to be surgically removed from
his head.

Ukrainians Encourage Social Drinking, Sort Of

A company in eastern Ukraine have released a new ‘drinking buddy’ service, sort of like a mix between Dial a Driver and escort services in the sense that they are rented friends who are there to accommodate for your drinking habits. The ‘drinking buddies’ are ‘qualified’
to yarn about politics, sports, women, the weather,
and so on.
