Favorite Weird Cases

From The Thinkulum
Jump to navigation Jump to search

These are strange events, people, places, objects, and ideas that especially interest me. I don't necessarily like them (some of them are about murder, for example), and I'm skeptical of a lot of them, but I'm interested in my reactions to them and in the issues they involve.

This list is for historical mysteries and the paranormal, aside from aliens. Aliens, fringe science, and conspiracies are in Fringe Theories. Philosophical and religious weirdness and strange fiction will go in other lists.
