    Minor Strangeness

    I prefer the use of other words instead of 'got' quite often, especially in written texts, as I was taught in my English grammar classes that repeated use of a word in a written work is frowned upon! So 'obtained' or 'acquired' for the act of coming into ownership of an item or service (I...

    Erm.....you see the bit at the wall where the plug is plugged in....have tried switching it off entirely with the switchy switch thing and also removing said plug from socket? I'd be extremely surprised (nay worried/concerned) if it still powered up then!

    Worthing (U.K.) Hazardous Materials?!

    Just saw this on BBC news. Puts me in mind of the mystery gas/smell thing that happened just a little further along the coast a year or two ago.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-49311079

    Minor Strangeness

    Planes on regular flights that aren't on approach or take off paths will (if not separated by tens of miles) be separated by some hundreds of feet in altitude to avoid the risk of collision.

    Time Slip At A Football Game

    For what it's worth.......A good friend of mine used to work (until very recently) for one of the big betting companies. He told me about how most sporting events are transmitted with some delay to prevent people gaining an edge over the bookies. He said that pretty much all the big companies...

    Robot Round-Up

    It can chase you down (very slowly). Nowhere (more than 2 minutes away from a recharge point) is safe. It can jump over a tree (even if it would be quicker to just go around it, or even just step over it). Mind you, I guess it could do all of these things while being shot at and not be too...

    Robot Round-Up

    I was reading (somewhere) earlier that the rise of things like "Alexa" (a stationary 'smart speaker') is proving so popular that people are buying them in sufficient quantities, enough to prevent the further development of 'assistance robots', with many small start-up companies going under...

    Global Warming & Climate Change

    I drive a lot slower than I did years ago on account of the fact that that motorways are much busier including many many miles of 'motorway' which has quite often 40 or 50 as the 'smart' limit, and I now have a van instead of a sporty car.

    Space/Time Malfunction?

    The effect from Jaws was done by zooming out at the same rate as the dolly camera moved towards Roy Scheider (Brody) thus keeping him in central focus. My experience was different in that I remained stationary while everything in front of me stretched out away from me.

    Space/Time Malfunction?

    I don't think I have mentioned this before, and I'm not sure if it fits better in another thread elsewhere instead of on it's own but here's a recounting/recollection of a minor odd thing that happened to me many years ago. I used to live in Hemel Hempstead and one day had driven to nearby...

    It Happened To George: Experiences With UFOs, Haunted Houses & The Spirits

    Like I said many posts back - George actually had a lot to bring to the table. He just didn't bring it to the table in a presentable way. I mean, if you cooked the best meal in the world but served it up on a dustbin lid I doubt whether many people would want to eat it. And unfortunately all...

    You know how sometimes you might be driving down the motorway, and on the opposite carriageway you can see that 'something' has happened, so you slow down a little and try to look over while still concentrating on the road ahead, trying to get a look at what happened, and you might see a set of...

    I think George has a lot to bring to the table. Thank you George. And I commend you for your tenacity. You're not easily put off. Unfortunately it is done in a rambling, waffling style, with an overtone of 'persecution complex', many 'typos', grammatical and spelling errors, and a lack of 'self...

    I'm not dismissive. I see quite a few odd things. My humourous posts are a response to reading all of the posts of others and reaching a conclusion of my own. I also think that extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof, or at least some proof, something tangible. For example, the photo of...
