And after we're done... we're gonna race shopping carts! RAWK ON DUDE!

Very strange news has surfaced in the Ukraine recently, as scientists believe they have found pyramids like those in Egypt. (Courtesy of my new favouritest Russian website in

Gigantic pyramids, very similar to Egyptian ones, have recently been discovered in Luganshchina. Scientists conclude that five thousand years ago, a highly developed civilization lived on the territory of modern Ukraine.

This unusually important find was noticed just two years ago by school-children from an archeology camp. So far, only the top sections of the huge constructions have been uncovered and scientists say that it will take a whole decade to fully clean the soil off the pyramids.

Any Aussie would tell you that something built to that massive scale must have been built to keep the rabbits out. And who can blame them, when you have rabbits of this size hopping around central Russia:

Residents of Novoselovo district in the Krasnoyarsk region have come across a mysterious phenomenon in the field. They discovered several tunnels of unknown origin in an area located some 100 meters away from the highway connecting the cities of Krasnoyarsk and Abakan , in the vicinity of the village of Kurgany.

There are about 10 holes in the field. Each hole has an entrance to a cave-like hollow place in the earth. Some of the tunnels are big enough for a person of medium height to stand up straight.

What's going on here? I'm guessing a vodka-fuelled posse of archaeologists are touring the former Soviet block creating archaeology-related jackass-style pranks and mayhem. Tenuous I know, but does anyone else have any theories?
