Fight Against Maturity

That will be $6852, please.

It’s a real-life horror story: Wellington Library’s most-overdue book has been revealed, and its borrower owes a theoretical $6852 in fines.

The Dunwich Horror and Others, by HP Lovecraft, was due back on February 12, 1988.

Although the library charges fines at 80c a day, it sets a cutoff at 28 days, meaning the borrower, if he or she is eventually tracked down, will be liable for a fine of only $22.40.

“New Jersey Is No Stranger To Mysterious Creatures”

Bigfoot spotters in New Jersey are reporting their own version of Sasquatch in ever-increasing numbers. Called “Big Red Eye” by locals, the sightings started in the 1970s and have been getting a little more attention lately, possibly due to the popularity of television shows heating up the subject.

But New Jersey is no stranger to mysterious creatures stalking the extensive, and still somewhat remote, forests of the state. Their NHL team gets their name from the most pervasive legend, the New Jersey Devil. So this new Bigfoot legend is a relative newcomer.
