I’m sure I put it over here somewhere

11:36:59: Rossa’s mother brings up an interesting one:


But I have had significant things disappear in moments where I’ve kept solid trace of them the entire time. I always joked with my S.O. about it being time to pay the gnome tax whenever it happened. I don’t know exactly when it started happening, but it was after 2012, and it seemed like a very solid point where it started happening all of the sudden and became a pretty normal occurrence. I’ve had things disappear from my pockets. I say things vaguely because they’re never too valuable, and are usually a consumable item.

It’s happened more times than I can count, and I am the kind of person that notices when minor things are turned the wrong way, I am slightly autistic. I keep very solid track of my things.

On top of this, I’ve had items literally appear in my possession, stored away as if intended for use.

The Twilight Zone episode which came to mind immediately was:

The motif has been used over and over in fiction – the known factor of things going missing for no reason, then seemingly reappearing – I just accept it now.

A Maigret episode has that happen to an old lady:

And of course the Matrix series.

Having said all that, and accepted that the human mind is complex, things come into it and go out, are stored, maybe for lifetimes – how could we know? I’m not arrogant enough to think I understand our minds and souls.

Weird things certainly happen.

    We used to know a chap who believed that burglars would break into his house and move his stuff around without, usually, stealing anything.

    We were completely foxed – what can you say?

    (Well, apart from “if they didn’t steal anything at least they’re not socialists, eh?”)

    It’s either the Society of Horizontal Relocators, who are strongly represented in our household, or quantum tunnelling.

    That must be it.

    I go with the quantum tunnelling because occasionally I find items I have never seen before around the house in a prominent place where I am 100% sure they weren’t a short while before. I believe these items to be things lost from elsewhere or elsewhen.

    It’s truly uncanny.

    They tunnel from the place where the socks and the ballpoint pens go.

        He’s going all Schroedinger on us.

          Possibly applies to Ole Grumpy too – is GOC alive or dead?
