Oh my god !!! Real life zombies ! And someone is thinking of raising up these wrecked ancient ships - dont they know about zombies ? Are they insane ? "Has everyone around here gone crazy?" as the Big Lebowski would ask?
A dozen previously unknown shipwrecks, some of them believed to be up to 1,000 years old, were discovered in the Baltic Sea during a probe of the sea bed to prepare for the installation of a large gas pipeline, the Swedish National Heritage Board said Monday.
"We have manage to identify 12 shipwrecks, and nine of them are considered to be fairly old," Peter Norman, a senior advisor with the heritage board, told AFP.
"We think many of the ships are from the 17th and 18th centuries and we think some could even be from the Middle Ages," he said, stressing that "this discovery offers enormous culture-historical value.

This has to be one of the most pathetic stories I have heard from western PA. Somebody stole this woman's ramp, she uses a wheelchair, so now she cant leave the house and get into her van. This is worst than the time a guy with a sword robbed the Domino's pizza store for crack money (he got less than $60 - they use a safe with a $60 max cash drawer). The police think it was stolen for its aluminum, probably pawned at a scrap metal recycling place.
