    Find the funniest or weirdest reported news story published on 21/3/2010 or 22/3/2010, (until i come home from work and settle down and stuff) and you could be 10DX points richer!


    safety first and some rules :s

    There was a report out that a phishing technique being used is for sites to copy emerging news stories and post them. So please stick to known news publications, and not just top google searches.

    the winner is chosen by open ballot, if you find a news story funny then stick a "LOL @ whoever post" if theres a draw then i will split the points.

    you can make multiple entries.

    the news story must be first published 21/3 or 22/3 by a trusted news site, and not just some random "nick's rambles"

    Russisch maanwagentje Lunohod is terecht na 37 jaar
    Na 37 jaar is het Russische maanwagentje Loenachod-2 teruggevonden. Een Canadese onderzoeker heeft het voertuig gevonden op recente foto's van de maan. Het wagentje was sinds '73 zoek geraakt, maar is nu teruggevonden door de Canadese wetenschapper Phil Stooke. De man vond de Loenachod bij het bestuderen van recente maanfoto's van de Amerikaanse ruimtevaartorganisatie NASA. Eerst merkte hij de sporen van het robotwagentje op en de man volgde die tot een klein donker puntje. Na onderzoek met lasers bleek dat het inderdaad om de Russische maanrobot ging. Loenachod-2 landde in januari '73 samen met de Russische ruimtesatelliet Luna-21 in de Le Monnier-krater in Mare Serenitatis. Tot juni van dat jaar legde de Lunohod-2 meer dan 37 kilometer af op het maanoppervlak, terwijl de instrumenten allerlei wetenschappelijke metingen uitvoerden. In juni reed Loenochod-2 zich vast en raakte kort daarop bedolven door stof. Daarna was er geen contact meer. In '93 werd het voertuig door de Russische producent Lavotsjkin verkocht aan de Amerikaanse ondernemer Richard Garriott, de zoon van een astronaut. Of die het tuig nu gaat ophalen, is niet bekend.

    In english translated by google:

The man was studying at the Loenachod Mon Recent photos from the U.S. space agency NASA. First he noticed the tracks of the robot cart and the man who followed up a small dark dot. After laser research showed that it was indeed the Russian robot went Mon. Lunohod-2 landed in January '73 with the Russian spacecraft Luna-21 in the Le Monnier crater in Mare Serenitatis. Until June of that year completed the 2-Loenochod more than 37 kilometer off the lunar surface, while the instruments exported all kinds of scientific measurements.

    E-mail error ends up on road sign


    When officials asked for the Welsh translation of a road sign, they thought the reply was what they needed.

    Unfortunately, the e-mail response to Swansea council said in Welsh: "I am not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated".

    So that was what went up under the English version which barred lorries from a road near a supermarket.....

    wow, i really suck at competitions!

    or isnt 10 dx points enough?

    btw, i saw a story today that i would have put in the news of the day thread, that would have been a great candidate imo.

    i guess some advice would be to look in the tabloids websites :P
