Transnistria, The Country That Doesn?t Exist

quote [ After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990, a thin sliver of land on Moldova?s eastern border with Ukraine broke apart from its parent country and declared independence from Moldova. A four-month war followed and some 700 casualties later, a ceasefire was signed. Since then, Moldova has stayed out of Transnistria?s business but still refuses to recognize it as an independent state. In fact, no other nation does. ]

Latest Rapture Coming on April 23! How Are You Preparing?

quote [ Here we go again: Fresh reports claim that the end of the world is nigh. Forgetting that we were all a little burned out by the 2012 end-of-Maya-calendar debacle, outlets such as the Daily Express are claiming that the Rapture ? the end-time event when Christians are said to ascend to heaven at the second coming of Christ ? is coming April 23 and we should get ready for it. ]

Just plain laziness on the rapture guys - I swear, they have just been mailing it in for the past few decades.

Man Says He's Not Dead. Court Doesn't Buy It

quote [ Constantin Reliu returned to Romania from Turkey to find he had been dead for 15 years ? officially, at least. And he still is, now that a court has denied his bid to overturn his death certificate.

"I am officially dead, although I'm alive," the deceased told The Associated Press by phone Friday. "I have no income and because I am listed as dead, I can't do anything."

In fact, Reliu, 63, very nearly couldn't even get back into Romania. It took more than six hours of interrogation just to convince customs officials he wasn't playing a hoax on them, he told local media. They told him it had to be a joke, because he was dead. ]

He'll be stone dead in a moment
