Attebradame certainly is a persistent bastard.

I'm actually in a LiveJournal community for exactly that. While I can't find nearly as cool sites as the Russians on that comm, I can amaze them with the fact that there are any abandoned places in Japan. Seems people outside of this country don't believe there are any.

Well, if you want abandoned places, check out Nature's Radioactive Wolves. It's definitely a hot spot but no tourists allowed.

Yep, the Bubble Economy built swathes of hotels, resorts and amusement parks which now lie dormant, or at least severely underused and unkempt.

I don't remember if this has already been noted or not, but it's definitely an example of real-life weirdness, the research ship that turns vertical on site:

The FLIP Ship

Somebody's Island of Mystery just emerged off the coast of Germany.

I suspect an Illuminati plot, or the minion of some mastermind pressed the wrong button.

Alternatively, the Cunning Plan has reached fruition, and the time has come to announce it to the world!

And it's obviously some kind of dimensional anomaly, because it's "34 acres long". They've already stolen one of our dimensions! Can the others be far behind?

I came across a sight where a Texas Genetic Labrotory stated that Bigfoot is a Hybrid, no older than 15000 years old of Modern Human and an unknown primate. In one article states specifically a human female with this unknown primate males. The head of the Lab is called Melba Ketchum. While the paper was rejected during peer review, just think of all the High Wierdness game material that could give you. If doing UFO's and Grey genetics one could claim Bigfoot as an engineered race. Or if you like a more disgustingly lurid approach it could even be something your Sasquatch could REALLY want our women!

Why you should be careful if you try to kill a goblin. They fight back, apparently.
