Greece can be a very exciting place. Spies last week; helicopter escapes this week. Yahoo had an advertisement that said "Put your real life on hold--go to the cinema."
No thanks, I will make do with my lifestyle.

Two prisoners have escaped in a helicopter from a high security jail in the Greek capital, Athens.
A Greek and an Albanian national escaped in a helicopter that landed on the roof of the Korydallos prison.
The Greek man was named as Vassilis Paleokostas, who was convicted of kidnapping and bank robbery in 1999.
Police believe his brother Nikos - who is on the run - may have organised the escape. The inmates flew to a nearby cemetery and fled on motorbikes.
The incident happened at 1820 local time (1520 GMT)
Police said they arrested the helicopter pilot, who said he had been forced to carry out the mission at gunpoint.
Korydallos is Greece's largest prison, housing more than 2,000 inmates, including foreign criminals.
I look forward to reading about who the prisoners bribed to get up to the prison roof.
