Weird Week 12

Just when you think you have her beat, life has a way of playing her trump card. We decided to spend a few days hiking around the shores of Loch Ness this week, taking in the sights and indulging in a little myth hunting. The weird factor was ever-present, from Scotland's scariest pub (whose patrons consisted of three skinheads watching endless Hollyoaks reruns) to an odd little elderly Geordie gent riding a golf cart, who was quick to assure us he was always around if we needed him. Mountains were climbed and forests navigated, strange noises heard and weird images captured. Beat that, life. Except life can always go one better, and beyond the break is the evidence. Albino cyclops sharks, mega viruses from the ocean, crooked forests, tourist trips to heaven – life 1, LTZ 0.
