Queen of Thrones
Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom was spotted in Belfast Ireland eyeing the Iron Throne of Westeros! The Queen who was on a trip surveying her “holdings” visited the set of the popular HBO series, Game of Thrones. She was greeted by cast members of the show such as Lena Heady and Kit Harington.

Where's my money?
Chinese recycling tycoon Chen Guangbiao’s in the headlines in New York again after trying to set up a charity luncheon in New York City for the homeless and destitute. Chen created a controversy when he said he was going to hand out $300 in cash to each participant, but in the end didn’t. While not completely his fault, many in attendance were upset with him calling the event a scam and a publicity stunt.

Bad Ink
Chinese character tattoo’s are pretty cool. But when you don’t know the language, there’s always the chance of getting something stupid written on your body. A few famous footballers participating in this year’s FIFA World Cup in Brazil were spotted with bad ink. Greek player Theofanis Geka’s tattoo reads Cold Killer Demon when it should’ve read Cold Blooded Killer.
