Monday is a day of regularity. It is a day of predictable assemblages of people and objects.
To counter Monday’s clockwork, I present the following links to mysterious assemblages:
The Guilty River, a free ebook by Wilkie Collins opens with a dreary time: “The mysterious assemblage of trees was blacker than the blackening sky. Of [...]
Have you heard The Hum?

At the conspiracy website Godlike Productions, user cometa’planeta has announced that the “breaking” news that “Comet Siding spring is nibiru planet x hercolubus!!! All characteristics seem to match. Coming below the ecliptic. Red in colour. Mass of a planet!”
