Strange Fish: My browser history (4-10 April)

Too much

If anyone ever had to check my browser history, I think they’d be very confused, if not outright shocked. 

As a writer, my internet search history is full of strange fish, which is how I refer to the insane collection of seemingly random topics I have to research while writing. So I thought it might be fun to share some of these links with you good folks as I write the third book in my Space Scrap 17 series, ‘The Biscuits of War’.

So, here we go. This week my browser has netted these strange fish: 

Ridiculous hair styles – just . . . why???

Jovian moon Europa – it turns out that ‘Cryovolcanism’ does not refer to Star Trek’s Mr Spock on a chilly afternoon. Still, Europa seems like a lovely place for a holiday.

How night vision goggles work – every fictional assassin should have one.

Angler fish – OK, so this is possibly the strangest of strange fish, and the most terrifying thing in the sea. After sharks. And me in my speedos. Oh, and then I had to check the spelling of Speedos, so guess this counts as one of this week’s weird links. 

Well, there you have it. Not an exhaustive list, but some of the oddest things I’ve been looking at.

What’s the weirdest thing in your search history this week? Link a link in the comments section below.

’till next time!
