Have You Ever Been in a Turkish Prison?
Have you waited until the last second to get that special someone something for the day that commemorates David Boreanz trying to have a film career? Good news! The most mediocre newspaper in the world has a list of last second items you can buy for Valentine's Day. Here's a hint.

Just a travel note, Chechnya has now banned wizards, so if you were going to ignore the travel bans for Westerners and thought your robes were protection enough from the bullets, this might put a cramp in your vacation plans. A little know fact is that this is really just an elaborate mechanism of keeping Nate Silver and proper vote-counting out of the region.
