Strangely enough, I did write Ananova about that very subject a few days ago after reading yet one more unbelievable story without a byline. I asked them to provide a source. Here''s the response from a guy there:

>Thanks for your interest in Ananova. We get our news from >many sources. We have our own dedicated team of reporters >and also take copy from freelance news agencies around the >world.

>Our quirky stories are a very popular and important part >of the site but we would never knowingly publish any >stories that are inaccurate.

He went on to say he''d check on the source if I sent him a URL. We''ll see.

At least their news articles are really damn weird. If we didn''t limit ourselves to three ananova articles a day, Fark would just be an ananova mirror
