Quote of the Day:
It is not the veracity but rather the *stability* of legends that keeps Fortean studies relevant. The goal is not to prove whether faeries, aliens, or Sasquatch objectively exist, but rather to highlight the astounding consistencies of storytelling as they resonate across centuries. For anyone investing the time, earnest examination of these phenomena implies… *something* objective lurking at the fringes of perception.
