The strangest thing. . . Inexplicable. Peculiar. Baffling. Odd. Bewildering. Perplexing. Labyrinthine. Mystifying. Abstruse.

But first, yes, abstruse is a word. Used in a sentence from the novel titled, The Adventures of Sally, “It was as if a child had suddenly propounded to an eminent mathematician some abstruse problem in the higher algebra.” Anyhow, the strangest thing. . .

The information below first posted on January 28th, over 3 weeks ago, remains one of the most-viewed and drawing tons of blog traffic. Why? Draw your own conclusions. However, the clue may be use of the word “another” in the news report below.

News from WFTV: “Titusville water reclamation facility responsible for sewage spill into Indian River lagoon”*:

TITUSVILLE, Fla. - The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is investigating another spill into the fragile Indian River Lagoon. [emphasis added]
     The city’s water reclamation facility pumped raw sewage into the water for more than a day.

[and. . .]

     Residents more than a mile away could smell the pollution.
     The Florida Department of Environmental Protection said there are several factors that determine if a fine will be assessed, such as how serious the violation is and if the release was beyond the control of the polluting facility.

“Commissioner McVoy suddenly propounded to his lemming followers that yes! fixing potholes is not an ABSTRUSE problem for LW roads in such pitifully poor condition. It takes money he explained. He went on saying anarchy CANNOT SOLVE A PROBLEM SUCH AS THIS. But after all the roads are fixed anarchists can TAKE CREDIT FOR IT ALL. Let everyone else do the heavy lifting McVoy bellowed. BE PATIENT. The KEY TO ANARCHY IS PATIENCE he said lowering his voice. He jumped on a chair and pointed at everyone whispering BE a Democrat. BE a Republican. BE a liberal. BE Green. When the time is right WE TAKE CONTROL AGAIN and BE WHO WE ARE! Anarchists!!!!!!! Then he got off the chair and invited everyone to Starbucks. I know you all miss Cara, he went on, FOR POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY she needs to stay out of town for a while. WE WILL hoist the BLACK FLAG AGAIN. I promise you."
