And in other news bears frequently deficate in wooded areas and the pope has announced he practices catholism.
Seriously it must have been a very slow news day. When I was serving with the British army in Bosnia with the UN I became the junior ranks barman just for something to do. I worked out that I was serving 3.7 cans of Boddingtons per member of the unit per night on avarage. That was really good considering the standing orders were every man was allowed 2 cans per person per night. Which has proved to be the most broken rule in the history of the British army.
