It's not that big of a nation and the cat was reportedly quite large. Maybe it looked bigger than it was because of how small Luxembourg is.
Indeed.



it is a most VICIOUS and CuRUUUEL kitteh!

A different kind of disaster this time:

It's the 28th birthday of our next enlightened ruler Prince Guillaume. And the second largest magazine in the country has found him five possible wives. I have no idea who four of them are but the fifth is Paris Hilton ...

Grand Duchess Paris Hilton? Oh no, you won't! :scaredno:

They're like cancer sniffing dogs?

In 2009 we had 1116 cases of shoplifting in the country. As fascinating as that figure is (:rolleye2:), the fun is in the details: While a lot of those cases were just one-time things where someone took advantage of sales-personal not watching, organised shoplifting seems to be on the rise!

So what did those "shoplifting gangs" steal? Well, the usual: alcohol, jewelry, electronics and razor-blades. Yes, there seems to be a market for stolen razor-blades ... :blank:

Seriously? WTF? :unicut:

Luxembourgish article here.
German article here.

Just the blades or cartridge inserts? Due to the price and the size of the packaging of the inserts, a lot of stores here have them either in dispensers - so that only one package can be taken at a time - or else at the front desk.

Also, you'll notice that we have no word "razor blade". We just call them Gillette. :unstare:

There is a razor-blade crime wave in Finland as well, it has been on the rise for a couple of years now. It is supposedly because they are easy to steal, usually placed in such a way you can grab and run, and are easily moved and sellable in Eastern Europe (or anywhere, for that matter).

It's foreign thugs doing this, of course.

They arrested a Mongolian shoplifter here some months ago (I wouldn't even have known about it if I hadn't been looking for stuff about Mongolia). Mongol hordes! Well, a horde. Well, a Mongolian anyway. But it was probably a scout!
