Earlier today, a bunch of Shanghai hairy crabs escaped from a box that had been brought onboard one of Germany's high-speed ICE trains. Ten of the hapless crustaceans, which are a delicacy in China, scuttled down the corridors and were later recovered; many others are still at large. "They're probably dead by now," a spokesman tells Spiegel, which also notes there's no way for him to be sure. Exactly. [Spiegel]
