…and it’s the 3rd definition that’s of use here.

What can count as an irregularity, a malfunction, or even a setback? How about a short, creepy story that can break the regular flow of your daily browsing? Or maybe it’s a piece of information that can make you stop and contemplate for a while.

With that in mind, what is it that you will find in this site?

Weird stories, that’s for sure! The range of topics is vast, as vast as all the things I find interesting and worth sharing. Crazy conspiracy theories, eccentric people, epic legends and weird tales, myths and fables of human stupidity. It’s all here!

Everything written here, is the result of research. If something sounds fascinating and worth mentioning, but cannot be proven, is stated as a rumor or an unproven theory/legend.
