WTF Friday, 6/10/2016

This week, in alarming news:

Migrant men from Afghanistan and Syria are selling sex to survive in Greece.

Amnesty International reports that Germany is failing to address a huge increase in hate crimes, including many targeted at asylum-seekers and refugees.

Fiat Argentina’s latest car manual reads like it was dug up in a time capsule from 1966. (H/T: Kendyl Salcito for this amazing nonsense.)

And the authorship attribution on NYT op-eds turns out to be kind of a guesstimate. A piece called “South Sudan Needs Truth, Not Trials“, ostensibly written by the country’s President and Vice-President, had only been up for a few hours when reports began circulating that VP Riek Machar denied any involvement. Oops.
