Weird News

It may well be that my head is in a funky state from exams and the floaty existence that surrounds them, but I’ve seen so many outright awesome headlines on my tour de web today that I will collect them for future reference. These are from renowned sources, it’s not April fools’ day and they are, as far as I can tell, completely true. Some are serious stuff, but forgive me for laughing – it is too absurd.

Woman exchanged 2000 Monopoly dollars into 1400 danish Kr in the bank, at an exchange rate of 0.7. But it does not stop there: Next day she went back to the same bank to do the same thing.

Blagojevich planned to sell the empty Illinois senator seat to Oprah Winfrey (who has never been in politics)?!

Car stuck, in church roof 35 m above ground. Used slope to launch.

No case files exist for Guantanamo detainees. Wait, what? That’s even crazier than I expected.

Man accepts other people’s speeding fines -goes to jail.
