Charidee 1

So George Osborne has gone and called off another planned tax, scrapping the tax relief limit on charity. I wonder if stuff like the “pasty tax” and such are smoke screens, distractions from really bad policies.

I’m not in the position to write off charitable donations against tax, but just for a moment let’s pretend I am so I can pose a question. If I wanted to make a double whammy of my tax relief, which would be the best charities to really piss off the Government? What charities, if any, exist primarily to campaign against the sort of abuse of power Governments- and they’re rich and corporate friends- are prone to?

Suggestions, for when I am rich enough, in the comments please.

Dear Lazyweb, please build me a wiki timeline of everything 1

I feel the need for a graphical depiction of events from world history, so I can get an idea of context for events. I’d like it to be sideways scrolling, zoomable and clickable. Initial population could be done by scraping wikipedia for dates I guess, and then the two would work together.

I’m not asking much for something I’d only use once or twice a month, but I’d still like you to build it for me.
