Today: the wanderlust and the spooky.

This weekend brings its share of wacky festivals, such as the Nettles Eating Contest in Dorset (?!?) and the Mermaid Parade at Coney Island. The celebration of Juneteenth also takes place, starting tomorrow, and then over the weekend it's the summer solstice.

Incidentally, if you're trying to get anywhere (for these celebrations or just in general!), Delaycast gives you a general idea of how long you're going to be stuck in transit. (I'm going to use this to plan how much reading material to take on trips.)

It's been one hundred years since the Tunguska incident. Was it a meterorite, UFO, or something else altogether?

For more oddities and unexplained phenomena, Charles Fort was the expert, and now many of his clippings and files are online in one place!

Just how mad a scientist would you be, if you were a scientist and, er, mad? Find out by playing the Mad Mad Neuron game. Muhahahaha!
