The AFP has picked up and ran a story out of the Pravada.
This story.

For those of you who don't know, the Pravada is a russian newspaper. Before the fall of the Soviet Union, it was the official mouth piece of the Party. It was a joke around the world because of the stories it printed that were obviously wrong, and usually also obviously outright lies. Well, with the fall of the USSR, it has become a tabloid newspaper. AFP running one of their stories is like the NYT running a story about the alien elvis bat boy clopne from the supermarket tabloids.

Ooh, if you haven't read it yet, get yourself a copy of "Just a Geek." It is an autobiographical work by Wil Wheaton (Autobiographical, not an autobiography.) A very good book, I cried when I read the material for the first time (the book is about his life and it uses entries from his blog to demonstrate what he's talking about.)
