Scientist in remote Antarctic outpost stabs colleague who told him endings of books he was reading

Sergey Savitsky, 55, and Oleg Beloguzov, 52, were avid readers to pass the lonely hours during four harsh years together.

A scientist in a remote outpost in Antarctica plunged a kitchen knife into his colleague because he was fed up with the man telling him the endings of books, say investigators.

Sergey Savitsky, 55, and Oleg Beloguzov, 52, were avid readers to pass the lonely hours during four harsh years together.

But Savitsky became angry after Beloguzov kept telling him the endings, it is alleged.

The victim is now in intensive care after being flown from Russia’s Bellingshausen research station on King George Island to Chile with a knife injury to his heart.

Savitsky is back home in St Petersburg under house arrest and has been charged with attempted murder.

It is believed to be the first time a man has been charged with a murder bid in Antartica.

I can fully relate. Apparently, he kept doing it. You'd go spare.

I'm the other way. It doesn't bother me in the slightest. Thats probably why I've read all my books at least 3 or 4 times minimum

Come on. Imagine it. Locked up with some other guy for four years and one of your greatest pleasures is reading except some prick keeps telling you the ending?

I. Would. Kill.

That said, my son, as a toddler, ate the last page of my book. Fortunately for him i was impressed at his rat-like cunning and continued to let him sleep in the house.

Isolated, slowly going insane. Reminded me of the movie "The Shining".

nope. Don't worry, you're bound to get something right one day. Even a broken clock is correct twice a day.
