Strange Wonder

Pirates cussing

The world is weird and wonderful. You knew that, didn't you? Just last week, h2g2ers were finding out about the sinking of RMS Titanic, discussing a science fiction story in progress, and even wondering about why Pluto isn't a planet any more. As WS Gilbert famously said, 'They sing choruses in public. That's mad enough, I think.' The h2g2 chorus goes on.

This week, we're just going to sit back and let the weirdness roll. Willem's got a new glimpse into wildlife. Rod's telling us more about New Zealand. We've got three quizzes to keep the old brain cells working. Over in Brightling, Nigel's found out about a thing called Pliny – he's got the wrong end of the stick, as usual.

Oh, those pirates? Just some stray thoughts about cussing. You'll find a story to go with it, somewhere in here. Just go exploring, and don't let the strawberry duck bite you.

Have a weird and wonderful week, all!
