The world is filled with strange and interesting events. Sometimes they're not worthy of a whole thread, or getting lost to the rapid fire pace of [Chat] threads, and thus, this repository was created to house them.
While not a hard and fast rule, the finest additions to previous threads have at least made an effort to express how something might not be good (perhaps even bad) news, that then twists in a positive fashion (perhaps even going right).
So we're on revision 2 of the 2019 edition of the thread, how will the Act 2 of the years wild and weird news go? Will we manage to astound one another and share in the oddity? How often will we have to ask Hedgie "how in the ever loving fuck is this 'gone right'?"? Is the punctuation on that last line highly questionable? (yes, yes it is)
An example to start us off;
Bad news: dog manages to get itself 135 miles out to sea.
Gone right: It was rescued by workers on an oil rig, who intend to find the owner, or adopt it if none can be found.
I'm also now realizing that Huffpost Weird News is probably where half our stuff is hijacked from.The previous thread
