SciXFriday - Room 88, time and time again - mysteries, maps, odds and assorted randoms

“…Tell me, has anything odd happened to you recently?
What do you mean, odd?'
Unusual. Deviating from the customary. Something outside the usual parameters of normalcy. An occurrence of unprecedented weird.” - Jasper Fforde, Lost in a Good Book, Goodreads
