Get a flannel...*

I'm not a sceptic. I'm not a believer. I'm open-minded. Sometimes, things can be explained. Sometimes, they cannot. Any true-life oddity that, despite all efforts, remains intangibly inexplicable suggests to me that the average human mind is either somehow incomplete or deeply flawed in its problem-solving capacity.

Now, I'm cool with that (being unavoidably ignorant). It's not like everything needs explaining, anyway. To paraphrase our old pal, So'crates, "The only true wisdom comes from knowing you know nothing". But saying that...

...HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THIS SUDDENLY APPEARING ON THE BACK OF MY SHIRT WHEN NO-ONE HAS TOUCHED MY BACK ALL DAY?


Genuinely spooked by this one, dear readers. Even stranger is that the mystery mark staunchly refuses to come off. Unless someone recently dipped their fingertips in bleach and snuck up behind me with the silent grace of a ninja-trained xenomorph, I truly cannot see how this came to pass - not to mention, remain undetected for so many hours.

...Oh, you might think this is viral marketing for the doc, or something. It isn't. Not directly, anyway. :)

*Special Mention - The name of this article is one of many gems contributed by BtC supporter, Arfon Jones. We've been looking for an excuse to use it as a blog title for about five years..!
