    I'd have to say BS all the way. I believe the first article may have been an idea but the other one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] . NO WAY!!!
    Looks like your classic tabloid to me and if you look at the other stories on that site you'll understand why I don't give it credit:

    Moskovsky Komsomolets
    PRAVDA.Ru Furious squirrels attack stray dog and tear it to pieces
    PRAVDA.Ru Ukrainian tourist agencies offer tours to Chernobyl and the surrounding area
    PRAVDA.Ru Six-fingered cursed androgyne swills vodka
    PRAVDA.Ru Centaurs appeared after copulation between humans and animals

    Sorry mate,

    The cactus/thorn one sounds like the national Enquirer..its a hoax.
    and Stalin's half-apes?

    I can only see hypertrichosis as authentic, as it is a well documented mutation, dating back to at least the 16th century in Europe and Asia (Leroi, A.M., Mutants: On the form, varieties & errors of the human body, 2003).

    I beleive the Stalin thing actually happened, and the scientist involved was forced to quite after an international outcry (when the secret leeked out).

    The other story is so poorly written it almost has to be false.

    I love the bit about "she is very fond of pot plants." LMAO.

    I think the one about tourist agencies offering tours of Chernobly and the surrounding areas is true.

    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.

    An education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.
