MSNBC reports that electrical devices in the town of Canneto di Caronia, Sicily have been spontaneously combusting. It’s gotten so bad that the entire town had to be evacuated. The power company removed the town from the grid and put it on a generator, until the generator also caught fire.
“Every time some new scientist comes to town, they arrive thinking the whole thing has been invented or that they’re going to solve the mystery in two minutes. They’ve all been wrong.”
“Someone wrote to us saying the solution was to sacrifice a black goat and collect its blood. At some point, that’s going to start looking like a good idea.”
