Growing up in the former Soviet Union, I still remember how hard Russian always tried to prove it was the first to invent things. Be that electricity or sewage. There was even a joke that Russian is the birthplace of elephants.

This time however, I think congratulations are in order: by killing its political dissident Alexander Litvinenko with a radioactive substance, it may have rightfully earned its place to be the world’s first perpetrator of state-sponsored nuclear terrorism.

And you thought Iran would be the first. Way to go Mother Russia!

We are onto something…

When I read the title “Syndrome Can Keep People Asleep for Weeks”, I first imagined a terrible illness that puts people into a comatose-like state. But reading further I discovered that the sleep state is not continuous, “sufferers” of this “rare but debilitating disorder” – mostly teenagers or people in their early twenties do get up to use the bathroom or eat “often enormous amounts of food”. But when you try to wake them up for anything else they get very “irritable”. Now it definitely rings a bell, doesn’t this syndrome already have a name? Something like… laziness.

But apparently, (and obviously) “Kleine-Levin Syndrome” sounds much more scientific. This way you can even claim disability rights, or at least try to. Now researches only have to link it to the effects of Global Warming and Ozone Layer Depletion luckily these two have already been linked, and they have a thesis on their hands.

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the magnificent world of scientific fraud.
