Darth Vader -- or, as I strongly suspect, a man impersonating Darth Vader -- walked into the mayor's office in Odessa, Ukraine last week. He cited a law that granted free land to any citizen who wished to claim it. Vader indicated that he planned to build some sort of spaceport or base and submitted an application. They gave him the usual bureaucratic run-around:
"The application has been registered and will be considered," a spokeswoman for the mayor's office told Reuters.
"We are not on the dark side, we are light-side people," she added.
