There are specialists who think that there are human parasitic, sexually transmissible infections that, if not making the victim more attractive, increase the sex drive.

Not all that rare, as such, and not precisely weird, but certainly interesting:

Bioluminescence Off Wales Coast

The images have a certain beauty to them, and I could imagine this being used as background for a game scene.

Kangaroos confuse driverless cars

The robots never went to Mars. They were sent to Canada!

I am not surprised. Not even a little bit.

Of course not. We can't even get to the Moon; how could we send robots to Mars?

They actually went to Abydos, starting from Cheyenne Mountain of course.

I'm not sure this qualifies as real-life "weirdness" so much as real-life "mind-numbing stupidity."

I am not entertained by these losers.
