The least offensive thing I can say about that is...
Despite being a revolver, there's still one in the chamber.

This, my revolver, aka "gun"
Could be for fighting, or strange sorts of "fun".

I take you haven't seen Pink Flamingos. The Divine character shoplifts a steak and keeps it warm in "mama's little oven". That's actually one of the least horrible things in the movie - Pink Flamingos has the dubious honor of being the only movie I've ever seen that actually made me vomit. It was the end scene with the dog pooh - I already wildly nauseated from the rest, and that just put me over the top.

I've heard of that incident, but didn't know that it was actually in a movie. Right up there with two girls one cup on the list of things I never want to ever see. And I'm normally nearly impossible to offend or disgust with mere images or sounds.

Now see, this sort of situation is why the Common Sense Advantage is not useless, and why at least one person in the party should buy it. That way if someone in the party decides to conceal a gun in her vagina, the GM can warn them that it might not be a good idea...

Again, this isn't precisely 'weird', but it's definitely unusual and interesting, and could easily have gameable implications:

Crazy woman in San Francisco raises rats, and releases them in public venues. City can't do anything about it. Just add a splash of Mythos and stir.

I'm not dissing any Icelander's beliefs, but this screams gameable scenario to me.

On Norderney - island

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norderney

some bars have started to deliver beer to thirsty tourists on the beaches - by flying drones.

(sorry, German language only).

Some guys in South Africa did the same on a festival.
According to Gurps Ultra Tech, this is a TL 10 technology.
The future is awesome.
