I like weird things, and I don't think that's bad.

I have a theory that weird things have a special capacity to inspire thought.

They can take us out of our normal intellectual and cultural comfort zones, and thus inspire interesting and valuable ideas. New perspectives and all that.

Thoughts on the subject?

Good thought is play.  Weirdness is good.

Or perhaps you're too specific. 

That's kinda weird.

That which fails at the quotidian would be that which elicits contemplation about the quotidian, and that which would elicit such to be such. A paradigm is oft of definition by the boundaries of which it would possess. In addition, that which would reside exterior to the quotidian would provoke discussion of alternatives to such a paradigm of the banal.

Thus, one would applaud such a sentiment, and heap naught but disdain upon those which would possess aught of the contrary.

"We had 97% in ATL. Were not able to make the drive north to see the full shebang (I got called in on a contrac), but should be able to see the next one in seven years. A couple shots from Little Five Points."

"Thank you, Christian.  Here are the English and the (Google) German translation.  (I am hoping that I was successful in attaching a file to my Word document.  I guess we'll just have to see if it worked.)"

"Yes.  Saw a ring of fire around a black disk.  Supposedly it was the corona, but it was plenty bright. Had so much fun looking thru my 2 pinhole cameras, seeing it on my tablet, and an occasional look thru eclipse glasses."
