    Omnibus ZANY madcap WACKY hare-brained ANTIC droll WAGGISH Catch-All Thread

    Announcing!

    Okay, you've ID'd your i-tem and, article a'hand, attempt to decipher where in the hell to post the thing -- clearly, or at least to your own satisfaction, you feel it very likely belongs in Bizarre and Off-Beat News forum but you're reluctant to go through the whole thread-posting rigmarole WHICH CAN TAKE MONTHS (not really); so where to drop the peculiarly interesting li'l thing??

    Right HERE, I say.

    Example: (from Daily Mail, conveniently enough; for lotsa this stuff just might be of a tabloidy kind of nature)

    Spectacles for horses, bicycle railways and a steam powered-man: wacky
    Victorian inventions that really should have stayed on the drawing board

    ⁍ Caroline Rochford uncovered the illustrations in a rare magazine collection
    ⁍ Remarkable black-and-white images which have been compiled into a book
    ⁍ Hand-grenade fire extinguisher and a flying machine among those pictured
    ⁍ A bicycle railway and a steam-powered man pulling carts filled with people
    The story and the cool b/w illustrations at DM link above.

    ....Romeo and Juliet Has No Balcony (Atlantic)

    ⁍ Shakespeare didn't even know what a balcony was—so how did one end in his most famous scene?

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
