UPDATED (Tuesday November 8th 1:05PM):
Anatoly Moskvina is a Russian man who thoroughly enjoys his collection of teddy bears and dolls. Ordinarily people would think this was odd for an older gentleman, but for Maskvina, this is truly unbelievable.
After he dug up the bodies of at least 29 females from hundreds of different cemeteries, he proceeded to take them back home to his three-bedroom flat in Nizhny Novgorod. He carried the remains of women aged 15-26 in plastic bags where they would soon be transformed into his live-in doll collection.
At his apartment, the twisted 45-year-old apparently dressed the bodies and skeletons in stockings and dresses, and even made one look like a teddy bear. All had died years earlier.
His ghastly obsession was uncovered when Moskvina’s parents visited him in the town around 200 miles east of Moscow after returning from a holiday.
The man was always a bit eccentric as neighbors report they thought he was a ‘genius’. Obviously he was very intelligent and was known to be a journalist as well as a historian, which may have led to his fascination of older, dead bodies. Apparently he sometimes slept in a coffin or on the benches in graveyards. Surprisingly no one linked the cuckoo (who was oddly obsessed with the dead) to the grave robbery‘s that were occurring.
Speaking 13 languages would be a great quality if he were actually having to use this skill set, but unfortunately the knowledge is wasted on dead bodies that were wrongfully removed from their graves.
Moskvina was said to have visited more than 750 cemeteries in western Russia to indulge his fantasies, although it was not clear when he had begun exhuming graves.
Police arrested Moskvina and later released him, but it was not immediately clear what charges he will face.
My twisted mind can’t help but wonder if he did anything else with these bodies other than dress them and admire his work? Seems pointless to take them, dress them, and leave them on display for no one to ever see, or so he hoped.

This woman had body armor implanted in her chest and probably had no intention of it being used for such a purpose. Hell, I don’t think anyone was truly aware of the pros of a breast augmentation. I must admit, I’ve been contemplating one myself and now that I know that it’s no longer a health risk, but possible life saver, what the hell.
The bizarre story about a new function of silicone breasts – body armor – took place in the family of a 40-year-old female Muscovite. The woman had a fight with her husband, and the man grabbed a knife in a fit of anger, the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper wrote with reference to plastic surgeon Sergei Blokhin.
The family fight would have ended with the woman’s death if it had not been for her silicone implants.
What makes this story even better, you ask? The fact that the same asshole husband who stabbed his wife was the one who had encouraged (probably demanded) that she upgrade her breast size 5 years prior. He had no idea that he was ultimately defeating himself when it came time to get rid of her. He did everything else right, stabbed the left breast, aimed for the heart, but the size didn’t even allow the knife to reach the thorax.
Thanks to modern medicine, the woman’s implant didn’t even leak and the breast kept its original shape. Ultimately, nothing is wrong with this bitch, just a little knife wound on her titty. What a foolish husband. And what a spectacular boob job.

Dailymail - Russia may have lost the first space race to America – but it is now on course to become the Thomas Cook of the Milky Way with a hotel among the stars.
Design plans were unveiled in Moscow this week by Orbital Technologies, the Russian company seeking to get wealthy tourists boldly going where they have never gone before.
While the price may not seem too astronomical, with initial claims suggesting the a five-day stay may cost around £100,000, it’s going to cost a cool £250,000 to get there.
And aside from the spectacular view, there’s not much else to do, so you’d be wise to take a good book.
So far only 500 people have been into space. Aside from a few very rich men willing to pay for the privilege, they have all been trained astronauts and cosmonauts.
Orbital’s chief executive Sergei Kostenko said his orbiting hotel will be ‘far more comfortable’ than the International Space Station. With room for seven guests in four cabins, visitors to the 706 cubic feet pod will be able to see the wonders of space through huge windows.
Called the CSS (Commercial Space Station) it will be built 217 miles above the earth and accessed via Russian Soyuz rockets.
Available for use as an emergency bolthole for astronauts aboard the manned space station, visitors will also be able to choose beds that are either vertical or horizontal – due to the weightlessness of space. And its showers will be totally sealed to stop water going where it shouldn’t.
Mr Kostenko said: ‘Our planned module inside will not remind you of the ISS. A hotel should be comfortable inside, and it will be possible to look at the Earth through large portholes.
‘The hotel will be aimed at wealthy individuals and people working for private companies who want to do research in space.’
Food will be suited to individual preferences, and celebrity chefs could be employed to cook the meals before they were sent into space.
Mr Kostenko added that ‘a number of agreements on partnership have already been signed’ and further funding was being sought from private enterprises.
Orbital Technologies is affiliated with RSC Energia, the prime Russian contractor for the International Space Station and the operator of all of the long line of Soviet and Russian space stations.
Mr Kostenko added that his space station would be up and running for tourists, hopefully by 2016, long before Virgin boss Richard Branson builds his.
