Strange News at 5 :: World Edition

By Ventipop @ventipop

Here's 5 news stories I found to be quite entertaining:

  1. The French have all the perks: Socialized Medicine, the beautiful Southern countryside, the city of Love, the cheeses and if you die while having sex on a business trip, your company is liable.

  2. Loneliness may be as bad for you as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. That's why the English are installing Chat Benches.

  3. From the "What Could Go Wrong?" files. Russian metal thieves have stolen a rail bridge.

  4. This one is totally shocking to me. 72.7 percent of adult Italian males between the ages of 18 to 34 still live with mothers who take care of them. Meet the Mammoni.

  5. Imagine being asked this question at the grocery checkout line, "Do you have your own banana leaves?" - Several Vietnamese supermarkets have started using banana leaves to wrap vegetables in an effort to reduce plastic waste.
