Fatal Attraction, much? A 42-year-old Dutch woman apparently had a very, very hard time letting go of her former boyfriend ... or his phone number. Prosecutors claim she called him 65,000 times in the last year, and are charging her with stalking. Spaced over 365 days, that's 178 calls a day—or about 11 every waking hour, assuming she actually slept...

At a preliminary hearing today, the woman claimed she had a relationship with the 62-year-old man, and (the best part) argued that the calls weren't excessive. She's been ordered not to contact him again, reports the AP. (More weird crimes stories.)
