Chances are if you enjoy this site, you like to poke around the weird wide web a bit, trying to find other unusual stories and weird news on a regular basis. Here are a few of our favorite places beyond Connecticut you might try to satisfy that need — once you’re done looking around here (including our links page), of course!
Fortean Times — I’ve been reading this Britain-based magazine about Fortean phenomena for almost two decades, and it was the inspiration for this site! Pretty much everything in the magazine eventually ends up on the site, and it’s got a nice international feel to it.
Discover Magazine‘s Bad Astronomy blog — Although primarily focused on space, the blogger who runs it — astronomer Phil Plait — is clearly interested in unusual things here on Earth and regularly reports on everything from the Large Hadron Collider to fractals to the Iraq military using dowsing rods to search for explosives.

UnexplainedMysteries.com — This is pretty much a weird news and mysteries agregator site, but a good one for things paranormal. It appears to be updated almost hourly, so every odd story tends to show up here, including some of our items from time to time.
Fark.com geek links — Usually my lunchtime reading. I’ve found more than one story for this site out of this area of Fark, although I recommend the entire site.
Wired science blog — Yeah, it’s supposed to be “science” but it often tends to showcase the more unusual and sensational (and more interesting) stuff that’s happening.
Map of Strange — Okay, just came across this one recently, and it doesn’t always seem to be up to date, but it’s a fun little site that has collected odd things that have turned up in Google maps.
That’s just a few we frequent more regularly. If you have any you’d like to share — please do! We’re always looking for new places t explore …
