Odd Things Are Reported

While fun to read, these compilation of gosh-wow things should be read with a jaundiced eye -- or at least a skeptical one.

Oftentimes the stories are embellished and expanded.

And many times, the strange incidents are passed around from book to book, cited by one guy from a previous fellow's book, while an original source may be indetectable!

But hey, they're fun to read.  I think a big part of their popularity lies in their ability to kind of broaden somebody's conceptual horizons.  That's probably why I have several hundred books on souch outre topics!
