03:28 pm: Российских прокуроров обязали сдавать загранпаспорта

The most memorable case of delusions of parasitism I have seen was a patient I saw in clinic who, while we talked, ate a raw garlic clove about every minute.

“Why the garlic?” I asked.

“To keep the parasites at bay,” he told me.

I asked him to describe the parasite. He told me they floated in the air, fell on his skin, and then burrowed in. Then he later plucked them out of his nose.

At this point he took out a large bottle that rattled as he shook it.

“I keep them in here,” he said as he screwed off the lid and dumped about 3 cups with of dried boogers on the exam table.

To my credit I neither screamed nor vomited, although for a year I could not eat garlic.

А вас какие беспочвенные страхи одолевают? На прошлой неделе я пять дней не ходил на работу и за это время кто-то покатался на моём прекрасном красном как Семён Михайлович Будёный велосипеде. Велосипед жив, но какое-то осталось ощущение неполноценности устройства вселенной.

Ещё Шульгин умер. Жил он на соседнем холму на улице в честь него же и названной. И похоронят его теперь, скорее всего, на том же самом кладбище.
