Business As Un-Usual

As MBA's we learn a lot about how business should run, ethics in business, the role of government in business... and the like, which is why these two articles made me laugh inside. First off is this opening to an article on bureaucracy in Russia:

"Every time Russian property developer Denis Semykin sells a new apartment, he is required by law to register the deal at a special government office. But there is a snag: the office does not exist."

...and the second is how even drug dealers try and cheat other drug dealers:

"The DEA believes the smugglers hid the heroin inside the coke to "deceive mid-level transporters, who charge higher rates for heroin shipments versus cocaine shipments."

Absolutely hilarious, what has the world come to? :-)
