My favourite story today

For some unknown reason, my favourite story today out of all the RSS feeds I plowed through was this one from the Telegraph (via, about a Russian gangster who built a gigantic, 13-storey wooden house — or at least the skeleton of one — almost single-handedly before being thrown in jail for extortion and emerging penniless. He’s now living in four rooms on the main floor and the townsfolk (not surprisingly) want the eyesore torn down. A Telegraph writer got a tour of the structure, and the photo gallery is priceless.
