And the Icelanders just opened their first pagan temple in a thousand years. An Adad vs. Thor grudge-match?

The Malaysians have lost track of who owns three Boeing 747s. Someone who claims to be a pilot says that "those planes have been around since 2010." One plane vanishes with its passengers and crew, than three new ones appear empty ... leaks from another reality? And what is a plane from Air Atlanta Icelandic doing in Kuala Lumpur?

Wow, that thing set off some sort of atavistic threat response in my hind brain.

In other weirdness:

A house with a bunch of secret compartments and puzzles hidden by the architect. Sort of like a real world Myst.

At least we now know which nation will go properly overboard at the beginning of the zombie outbreak. Rather than all this, "Hey, that guy's oozing and eating people. Let's dink around until he infects a hundred more."

Just critically failed an animal handling roll. Had my retired heading dog in the passenger side footwell of my work vehicle (Yamaha rhino) and got out to open a gate. She got out to have a wee and stood on the accelerator and managed to run me over.

So I just got run over by a dog. . . .

My pride was battered, but my sense of humour was intact.

Just gravel rash.

Dude! You're supposed to *report* the weirdness, not *be* the weirdness.

I'm glad you're OK.
