Continuing on our theme of lost-and-found Alternate Reality spacetime slips, take a gander at Michael’s TWIDDER:
Michael Brein of Mountain-Top Llama Ranch in Oregon had the exasperating experience of dealing with a not there/there power cord.
He returned from a trip to Europe the summer of 2000 with digital pictures to download to his computer. He had a special dual cord/cable for this procedure. But he could find it “absolutely NOWHERE.”
In the process of turning his house upside down looking for the dual cord/cable, he search his small Eagle Creek daypack twice, completely emptying it.
One morning days later, still obsessed with finding the missing cord, he looked yet again in the little daypack, knowing it was just a futile, irrational attempt to locate it.
To his complete shock, there it was; an “unmistakable clump of spaghetti wiring, transformer and all, which if extended out would be about six feet of cord and cable!”
Writes Michael, “I must have created at least ten half-baked different theories to possibly account for this, ranging from helpful gremlins . . . to mind over matter.”
