ANYONE want to own the head of Jeremy Bentham? After his death, the philosopher and jurist was preserved. His ‘Auto-Icon’ sits in a wooden cabinet, at the end of the South Cloisters of the main building of Univerity College London. Now you can own his head.

UCL almni relations are offering scholar a free head to “inspire radical thinking”. It’s also useful for keeping your Rizlas from blowing away…

Spotter: Ben Goldacre
