High Strangeness: Thank you, Veronica Mars!

Thank you, Veronica Mars!

So this is how social networking is supposed to work!

I think I have finally figured it out, and I owe it all to Veronica Mars.

How's that, you ask? Well, here's how it worked: Last week my daughter Cxxxx went to see the new Kickstarter-funded "Veronica Mars" movie, and she loved it. I mean loved it--she was actually kind of berserk.

One of the things she was excited about was that my friend Lxxx was in the movie, so not only did she know someone in the movie, she was now one handshake away from the actor in the movie she was crushing on (who, a bit ironically, kills Lxxx in the movie!) (Sorry 'bout the spoiler).

My friend Lxxx, before I dragged her into this whole UFO thing.
Anyway, that brought about my chat with Lxxx last week, which resulted in Lxxx telling me about her UFO experience, which I then blogged about here, and which started an interesting discussion in the comments section about whether it's possible to pinpoint, measure and name that moment when something you're looking at goes from being "somewhat odd" to "that's not normal."

That was a week ago.

Today when I sat down at my computer I found that the conversation on my blog had spread to Facebook here, and quickly got the attention of famed UFO writer Jenny Randles, who developed the concept of the "OZ Factor" in UFO sightings. Pretty cool, right?

But, wait, there's more! No sooner had Jenny Randles chimed in than the conversation migrated to "The UFO Collective" at Google Groups, where it will probably live forever!

I feel like I'm the king of the internet! I recently started using a web tracker called Klout.com to measure and analyze my growing social network empire, and in only a few days my rating has gone up nearly 20%. After all this stuff going today, I bet my ratings will go through the roof!

And to think, I owe it all to Veronica Mars.
