Sometimes I get stumped for creative ideas. Usually that means I am not reading enough. The obvious solution, therefore, is to go read a book! Alas, sometimes life gets in the way, preventing proper reading time. When that happens I turn to my "secret" source for zany inspiration: Pravda.
Yes, you read that right: Pravda. The Russian newspaper. It has wonderfully wacky articles in its science section, filed away under the mysteries category. There's almost always something weird in there that inspires an adventure. It's kinda like the tabloids, but better.
