Sunday Burst of Weird and Awesome

Oddities and Awesome abound!!!

::  Seventy-five years ago, a whole bunch of special beer was brewed in Britain on the occasion of the coronation of King Edward VII. But that coronation never took place, because the King abdicated so he could marry the woman he loved (thus bringing a stutterer to the throne...note to self: write blog post about The King's Speech). So the beer was left in a cellar and forgotten...until now.

::  In Siberia, a diesel truck ended up in a river. The river was deep enough to completely submerge pretty much the entire truck except for the cab and the engine compartment. The truck won.



One of the YouTube comments dubs the truck "Truck Norris". I find it hard to disagree.

:: Nick Mamatas doesn't think too highly of some common bits of writing advice. I tend to pretty much ignore all of it myself, by this point, and simply try to do the very best that I can on the story that I want to tell. Of course, I'm still an unpublished schlub, so who cares what I think, right?

More next week!
