Today in Extraordinarily Odd

Unburdened, it seems, by a quest to simply function let alone a quest for excellence, Palermo’s City Hall in Italy has hired 110 bus drivers – none of whom actually have bus driving licenses. Now, all that’s left to do is simply pay them while they sit there and figure out what to do. Judging by the standard set, though, it seems like the problem will be swiftly dealt with by a capable mind justifiably in a position of power. [source]

A British man was told he was about to die of pancreatic cancer and that there was nothing anyone could do so he did what anyone else would do; he went out and spent up all his money – probably on relentless coke and whore binging – and just as he had spent the last of his money found out he wasn’t actually going to die at all. The sad part is, seeing as he’s completely broke and old – he really may as well be dead. Therefore, either way, his fate was sealed from the moment that doctor read him the diagnosis. He’s suing.
