Wacky, Weird, and Wonderful

Stranger Song by Cactuscafe. Cactuscafe made us that picture last August, but here it is again, reminding us that the road goes ever on. And that you meet all kinds of people on the way. Who have you met? Do you want to tell us about it? What have you learned from the kindness of strangers? We're waiting to find out. Freewayriding's got a story for you this week. Check it out.

Willem's still encountering the strange and wonderful in the plant and animal kingdoms. You'll want to examine this week's specimens. Speaking of specimens, the Prof's back with another Yorkshire quiz – we'll be fluent soon.

NASA's boldly going around Mercury, while Ben's boldly going into hitherto unfamiliar parts of his house (like the kitchen cabinets)> Follow some journeys – Bluebottle takes you around the Guide, and Awix takes you back to the cinema. We take you into the world of calendars as we answer the burning question: do h2g2ers really know what the date is? I blame 2legs, who will have to read this on a Swedish computer, no doubt. Behave over there, fellas, and learn to say 'I got the hang of Thursdays' in Scandinavian.

Lots to be explored and enjoyed in here. Take a look around, stop and chat, and remember to start working on your August Create contribution.

Enjoy your week, and be kind to strangers!
