This crazy world

Tentman! He’s not giving much hope to save the world if the world needs it, but at least he’s trying.

The Swiss are asking themselves if the country abandons its status as a tax haven and starts accepting only clean money, whether their prosperity will survive or not.

An 82-year-old woman died after an attack by a toxic bear in Fukushima Prefecture. A Dutch minister was criticised for saying “death is a risk burglars run“.
