Want to buy the Magna Carta?
A rare copy of the Magna Carta, the document that enshrined civil rights in English law, is to be sold in New York. The copy owned by the Perot Foundation is expected to fetch more than $20m (£9.94m), auctioner Sotheby's says. The copy on sale, sealed by King Edward I and dating from 1297, is the only one in private ownership. King John sealed the original Magna Carta in 1215. The 1297 manuscript, bought by H Ross Perot in 1984, is due to be auctioned in December. It was on view until recently in the National Archives in Washington. (Source: bbc)

What was the first and only X-rated movie ever to get an Oscar?
Everybody's talking at me
I don't hear a word they're saying
Only the echoes of my mind
People stopping staring
I can't see their faces
Only the shadows of their eyes
