Blame Ambien?

First it was the reports that some users of Ambien were eating in their sleep. Then reports of Ambien causing sleep-drawing and sleep-sex. But now comes a report of a man in India, apparently not under the influence of Ambien, who divorced his wife in his sleep. For me the best part of the article is the part that describes what the couple must do if they want to fix this "mistake":
The religious leaders ruled that if the couple wanted to remarry they would have to wait at least 100 days. Sohela would also have to spend a night with another man and be divorced by him in turn.
Ah, the wacky things people do for religion.

I swear that divorce/remarriage thing was an episode of Taxi.

Interesting. Taxi is one of those inexplicable gaps in my cultural experience. Oddly, the first time I ever saw an episode of Taxi was about a month ago. On an airplane, of all places. Don't know why I had never watched it until then. I just hadn't.
