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.

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.
