According to New Age mystics, there is some sort of supernatural vortex near Sedona Arizona where - geez, I dunno, life forces concentrate and make it a sacred place or something.
During one of the supposedly even more sacred times of the calendar for these folks, I saw a make-shift altar near there, a large rock surrounded by two concentric circles of smaller rocks. On the larger rock was a tiny toy car, about 27 cents in change, and an executive-driven, low-mileage demonstrator Hall's Mentholyptus cough drop.
Oh, and a bunch of ants.
The toy car and the money I could sort-of understand, but I'm not sure what sort of religion worships used cough drops.
The Bermuda Triangle is another supernatural phenomenon, apparently picking ships and airplanes out of the sea and sky respectively, and whisking them off to - again, I dunno; the lost city of Atlantis, maybe?
To these I propose to add "The Mississauga Rectangle", a strip of the 401 highway centred around the Mavis Road interchange.
Whenever there seeems to be a crash on the eastbound 401 at rush hour - i.e. daily - it always seems to be right at Mavis Road.
This morning's was just east of the interchange; usually it is just west.
Why here? The highway is no different here than anywhere else.
That's why I suspect sinister alien forces may be at work.
To what purpose, I cannot imagine.
Maybe those of you who live east of the city (my Dad always said you should live east of your work so you are always commuting with the sun at your back and not in your eyes; among the many things my Dad tried - and failed - to teach me...) have a similar situation on westbound 401.
The Pickering Parallelogram, perhaps?
Again, it makes no sense.
Any clues out there?
