What's going on in Romania these days?  
Just doing my normal weekly scan of Ananova's news of the weird, and it seems there must be a pack of roving reporters in Romania just waiting for anything even remotely newsworthy to happen. After the fourth or fifth story from that area i started really wondering. It's a UK paper, so it's not quite as unusual as if they were all from a US news source, but it's still a really strange preponderance of Romanian stories over the last week:

Woman, 74, dies during sex with young lover in Romania.
Woman cuts partner's penis after oral sex demands in Romania.
Sex theme park doubles village birth rate in Romania.
Romanian city tries to sell nuisance bears on the internet
2,000 bodies found underneath family home in Romania
Village school sets tough test for would-be cleaners in Romania
Jesus and Mary knickers spark outrage in Romania
Insurers refuse payments to pensioner obsessed with car crashes in Romania
Sweet smelling body of dead priest unearthed in Romania
Romanian sick of democracy applies for asylum in Iraq

And of course there's also been the on again off again news about the Dracula theme park.

Hmmm, i tried to upload this with Semagic several hours ago, but it couldn't contact the server. Let's try the web client.

"LJ is going to suck massively until further notice"

or for the official version http://status.livejournal.com - although it really hasn't been as bad as I thought it'd be. I think Alan did something or other to make it a bit better.

New servers? I thought he was installing new servers when i was visiting boston last month. How often do they get new servers?

Good question. I don't know. Fairly often though, it seems. LJ grows fast.
