Today’s Oddities: Belgium on sale, suing God, FG’s sudden overseas trip

Until now, 100 days after a general election, Belgium still has no government.

As Belgian political parties continue to bicker and fail to form a coalition government, eBay unwittingly hosted an online auction that saw bidders seeking to buy the “second hand, three-part kingdom of Belgium” for 10 million euros tops. Before a sale could be made, eBay stopped the auction and saved Belgium.

In the US, a Nebraska state senator sues God.

The last odd news for today is this: First Gentleman Mike Arroyo flies out of Manila on the eve of the Senate investigation on the foul ZTE broadband deal.
