Weird thought of the day 

Now that he's lost the election for president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych has returned to be prime minister. He was voted out by parliament, but under the old rules the order had to be signed by Kuchma, who has let him take this "holiday" instead. Yushchenko has called for a reinstitution of the blockade of government offices.

The over/under number for Yanukovych's duration in office is seven days. I might move that out a bit because Orthodox Christmas may intervene.
