Gold Dispensing ATM

In the Emirate of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates at the Emirates Palace Hotel a german company has built the first ATM that takes cash and dispenses gold bars weighing 10grams. I know that a lot of people will look at this and again talk of access etc etc but honestly I think its an innovative and creative idea.

Think of it this way, lets say you were at the hotel with your significant other, and wanted to give them a special gift, then why not a small bar of gold, its brilliant! Its also an investment, if you buy a few bars when the prices are low, you can sit on it for years and sell them back for a profit if the prices rise (which if they follow the trends will in the long run).

This machine was invented by Thomas Geissler a German national and CEO of Gold-to-go the ATM was previously installed in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and had a positive reception.

MP of a Racist Party Street Fighting

This was just amazingly funny. The BNP (British National Party) is an extremely racist and homophobic party, they previously even had a whites only rule for people that wanted to join, in fact you arent allowed to be a member of the BNP if you are in the police in the UK, and prisoners arent allowed to join it.

It might seem strange that in the UK, a democratic country there would be prejudices against people from certain parties to have certain jobs, but the UK has very developed laws against the spread of hate and racism, and so since the police are in charge of ensuring safety to all, they dont allow people that are part of blatantly racist parties to join.

The leader of the BNP Nick Griffin in his attempts to gain more power is distancing himself from some of his previous claims, which even included Holocaust denial. In fact in 1998 he was convicted of violating section 19 of the public order act 1986, by spreading material that is hateful against groups. Out of all British political parties, including the conservatives, the BNP was the only one to oppose civil partnerships for same sex couples.

Back to the video though, I think its amazing, but kudos for Bob Bailey, he held his ground in that fight, theres something hillarious about seeing a suited man running for a seat in parliament to get into and win a street fight with some chavs. I guess the only thing funnier is the (now usual) fights in Taiwanese parliament.
