The Gecko Ate My Baby

With the Winter Reading Challenge winding down, it looks like I'll once again be transplanting my list to the next Challenge. Man, am I slow! Actually, I'm not, I just get frequently distracted by magazines, true-crime paperbacks, and online weirdness like The Mars Records These are the memoirs of a man who was brainwashed into doing military service on Mars, killing people and aliens with his mind. He was age-regressed by 20 years so that no one would notice. His life resumed normally after that because his memories were artificially suppressed, but the military continued to abduct him on a weekly basis for some reason. Oh, and his wife's first baby was teleported out of her body by Reptilians. Yeah, so it's not Proust...

Yeah, I'm still reading weirdness too. :(
I can't help it. It's like a train wreck. I just can't look away.

Anyway, NOW I found out that your brother MAY be an extraterrestrial, or "New Age Child". Have you ever noticed a strange light emanating from his eyes? ;)

Uh, no. I think that's just the gleam of being a shit-disturber! ;D
No, seriously, I have heard that children with ADD and related things are more likely to be "Indigo" or "Star" or "Crystal" children, with paranormal powers. A&E's been doing a series on it. They send kids to a camp where professional psychics teach them to hone their abilities, bend spoons, etc. One of the girls communicated telepathically with trees.

There's more lunatics out there than I ever thought possible. :(
