Belgian farmer accidentally moves French border BBC May 4, 2021 – Weirdness Wednesdays May 5, 2021

This is a slightly different and humorous Weirdness Wednesday choice – Belgian farmer accidentally moves French border: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-56978344. Slightly longer article, but here’s a brief synopsis.

A farmer in Belgium has caused a stir after inadvertently redrawing the country’s border with France.

A local history enthusiast was walking in the forest when he noticed the stone marking the boundary between the two countries had moved 2.29m (7.5ft).That is, until now.

The Belgian farmer, apparently annoyed by the stone in his tractor’s path, had moved it inside French territory.
