Some prejudices seem to be about right: Dogs are the better humans!

Not a news story but definitely weird.

Today, I went to a conference across town. As the conference began, I soon realized that I had previously met one of the presenters and his wife at a party several years ago. Afterward, I went up and talked him a little. I go home and look forward to telling my wife that I ran into him. Nothing too unusual but something of interest to discuss at home.

Now here's where it gets weird. I started by asking my wife if she remembered him and she said "Did you see my email today?". Long story short - my wife ran into his wife at her office today also. While those two have occasionally emailed each other, they haven't talked in over six months. And, even though they both work in the same building, it's large and they have never run into each other there until today. I wonder if I should buy a lottery ticket. :oldtongue:

Sorry, no English source for it, but somehow funny, and no, it is not India:

Herd of cows disappeared without a trace since mid-July

"A farmer from Greifenstein has lost eight cows and twelve calves. They have been missed since mid-July, when they were standing on a pasture between the districts Arborn and Nenderoth police reported. Suddenly they had disappeared. A similar case happened a few weeks ago in Edertal. .... The farmer suspects that they have made an unauthorized excursion into the forests of the area. He excludes that the herd was stolen and taken away. The animals are beige and all have ear tags. The police themselves do not look for the cows, but ask for advice from hikers or motorists."

So if you find black and white cows in your garden, don't call the police. Only if they are beige.
