Moscow man sues 'Russia's Google' for publishing so much bad news he became bald

In this world that we live in, it's undeniable that the news can be a bit depressing from time to time.

Having said that, bad news has never been directly blamed for making anyone's hair fall out... Until now.

Over in Russia, a Moscow resident is blaming his receding hairline on reading too many negative news stories.

As a result, he's in the process of trying to sue Russia's Yandex News (known as Russia's answer to Google) for 1 million rubles - that's around ten grand to you and me.

As reported by Mashable, Roman Maslennikov argues that the search engine has churned out so much bad news in recent times that it's caused his hair to fall out.

His lawyer, Vladimir Zhiganov told RIA Novosti that the lawsuit asks for "the recovery of moral damages worth one million rubles" and was filed at Moscow's Khamovniki court.

"We are also asking Yandex to be more attentive when checking the headlines of the published news stories," Zhiganov said.
