Why celebrities should never, ever accidentally leave belongings behind: they will surely end up on the internet or up for auction. That’s what’s going on with a pair of Queen Elizabeth‘s underpants—if you can even call them that—that she apparently left on a plane way back in 1968.

After the jump, find out if she did just that. Keep reading »

NYU photography professor Wafaa Bilal was one of 23 brave souls who agreed to have surveillance cameras embedded in the backs of their heads as part of an art project called “The Third Eye.” The images recorded on the cam will be streamed to a live feed at the Arab Museum of Modern Art in Qatar. Wafaa plans to leave the camera on at all times — including sexytime. Whoa, just whoa. Keep reading »
