RATS! Well might you exclaim if you happened to be the owner of the bank in India where an enterprising rat helped himself to a AU$25,000 meal.
Police say at least one rat slipped through a hole in the back of an ATM in northeastern India and started eating, shredding enough notes to give anyone heartburn – pass the omeprazole.
“The ATM was out of order for a few days and when our technicians opened the kiosk we were shocked to find shredded notes and a dead rat,” said SBI branch manager Chandan Sharma.
Religions take many forms, but here’s something different.
If you want to escape the Earth-bound rat-race for good, you can now join the nation of Asgardia, which promises to colonise the moon and set up “space arks” with artificial gravity in outer space where humans could live permanently.
Just 20 months old, the “nation” has around 200,000 citizens, a constitution, an elected parliament and a leader, Igor Ashurbeyli, inaugurated Monday.
It also said it wants to build up a population of 150 million within 10 years.
Asgardia – named after Asgard, a world in the sky in Norse mythology – says its citizens now live in more than 200 countries, outnumbering the United Nations’ 193 member states.
Becoming a citizen online is free, but ongoing membership costs 100 Euros plus some taxes on income.
So, pharmacists in space?
