Corpse Caper

Did you know that a former President of Cyprus' corpse was stolen, apparantly with some significant effort?

It was recovered but the motive is still unknown.

I very much enjoyed the book tracking down the remains of Thomas Paine.

I recently saw something about vending machines and their history, which is tied to censorship in England, including the work of Mr. Paine.

Update: Now that I think about it, that grave robbing is exactly the manner of information which Jungletrader would bring to light in the wider Western audience. He probably mentioned it.

Jungletrader is awesome, always check in on him. I have been remiss and look forward to catching up on all of his posts.
