Nitwit News – April 1

A young man in central Sweden found himself the owner of a military tank last week after he saw it for sale and decided he couldn’t do without it. Jimmy Johansson, a 23-year-old, can now add tank to his list of possessions. But the $11,700 purchase wasn’t something he planned — he says it was an “impulse buy” that was encouraged by his mother. The PBV 401, a Soviet-built fully amphibious tank that weighs around 12 tons is parked out the front of his grandfather’s house while Johansson decides what to do with it.

In an effort to get as many Californians signed up for health insurance before the March 31 deadline, Covered California accidentally listed a phone sex line on its website.

A Swedish gym chain (Sats) fooled public on Tuesday with their April Fools’ offer of “cold yoga” — a mind and body experience undertaken in sub-zero temperatures. The gym wrote in a press release: “The latest research shows that if you lower the room temperature by a few degrees then you increase your metabolism.” It also put together a video showing what cold yoga is like. Basically it’s people in yoga clothing shivering as they work out. As the video surfaced online, a handful of calls from would-be cold yoga practitioners came in, asking for information on how to book a class.
