Ukraine's parliament has approved a partial mobilisation of troops following Crimea's referendum supporting a union with Russia.

Was there every a doubt Crimea would vote to join Russia? Between a very skilled agitprop campaign and the benefits Crimea will obtain from shifting back to Russia, it was a foregone conclusion.

Look for everything east of the Dnipro to start agitating for secession from Kiev next.
The fastest way to a man's heart? Inch to the right of the breastbone, between the fourth and fifth rib.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.
