An Unfortunate Funeral

Post by ffutures » Thu Jan 28, 2016 5:03 pm

It's bad enough having to go to a funeral, but something like this is REALLY unfortunate...

...though a bit hilarious if you're not involved.

The main reason I became aware of this is that the vicar involved had an earlier career as one of Britain's most prolific, if somewhat unreadable, SF authors:

if he was still writing it would probably turn up in one of his books as an alien religious rite or something.

Anomalous Phenomena, eh? Might one say Fortean?

Fortean Phenomena is not usually titties.
You maybe onto something there. Honestly wouldn't Fortean Phenomena attract a lot more attention if it WAS floating titties?
Imagine the rush to study it. It would be like a horny tsunami of pure quivering science.

Not that I'm casting dispersions as to humanities capacity to conduct 'proper' science from the limited stand point of gender.....

Or flying rehnquists perhaps - definitely Fortean phenomena, those.
