It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s …
One of the staff members here at Woodworker’s Journal has an unhealthy interest in really bad movies — prime example, Sharknado. This (series of!) movie(s) features a plethora of rubbery sharks falling from the sky onto a host of actors long past their career zenith and whose on-screen sobriety is questionable.
Still, you can imagine his excitement when I mentioned that one of my newsfeeds featured a photo of an octopus falling through the sky in China, with the headline attached: “Sea Creatures and Giant Hailstones Rain Down on Chinese Cities!” Alas, the photo of the octopus proved to be a fake (this may be an Internet first), but the rest of the story was true. So, this has nothing to do with woodworking, but the point I am making is that here at the Weekly, both the stories and the photos will not be fake news. (Except perhaps in early April …)
So, kick back and click on some great woodworking content, and keep your eyes peeled for flying sea creatures … and sawdust.
