Michael Shulman writes a very interesting piece in The New York times about bisexuality, a label with layers: “Of course I still fancy girls.” Those six little words, tossed off like a request to please hold the mustard, were among the most deconstructed in Tom Daley’s YouTube video last month, in which the 19-year-old British Olympic diver announced that he was dating a man . . . Mr. Daley’s disclosure reignited a fraught conversation within the L.G.B.T. community, having to do with its third letter. Bisexuality, like chronic fatigue syndrome, is often assumed to be imaginary by those on the outside. The stereotypes abound: bisexuals are promiscuous, lying or in denial. They are gay men who can’t yet admit that they are gay, or “lesbians until graduation,” sowing wild oats before they find husbands. Read full article in The New York Times.

This is why we love pastafarians so much: "Pastafarian minister Christopher Schaeffer was sworn into the Pomfret New York Town Council this week with a colander on his head throughout the ceremony to represent his unique religious beliefs. Mr Schaeffer, a minister for the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) took his oath of office before the board's recreational meeting on Thursday afternoon."

According to a research made by the US-based Coalition Against Drug Abuse New Year’s goals relating to marijuana were over 71 per cent more popular in 2014 than in the previous year. "To find these results, Joseph Rearick of the Coalition analysed around 1 million tweets posted across the world in the run up to and the days following New Year’s." I still really don't know how reliable to prove resolute intention a tweet is, but you can read the full article in The Independent. E.T.P. 3'
