Here is a link to a complaint letter that was sent into Virgin.  It's brilliant.

 Thank goodness that sort

 Thank goodness that sort of food is only for travellers to Mumbai. I'm hoping for something slightly classier when I fly with them to America.

But speaking of strange letters, when I was doing my archaeology degree, I received a strange letter from a man in Stirling purporting to know the whereabouts of 8 Roman forts in the Stirling area. For various reasons I declined his invitation to be shown these sites, partly because I wasn't in Scotland at the time, partly because it wasn't too relevant to my studies and thirdly because I had an immediate distrust for my own safety if I had met with this individual. I sent a polite letter declining his invite only to be responded to with a 5 page response detailing how fantastic these Roman forts were (dating from the time of Caesar!!!!) and how I was just like the rest of the establishment. He even detailed his exploits of breaking into building sites to find these forts. And how did he find these (along with neolithic houses or somethingorother) by dowsing!

I've nothing against dowsing, but there's not much evidence indicating that it works for finding water, let alone eight Roman forts, various other dwellings, as well as dating them and defining their shapes.

Strangely enough when I checked with local archaeologists they were completly miffed that they, as professionals, had never found any evidence of forts in the various locations using more archaeologically traditional methods...

I think you did right

I think you did right ignoring that letter Agricola.  I know I've receieved a few strange e-mails through this site :)  One thing I have noticed about the paranormal is that it does attract a few people I'd consider to be a few sandwiches short of a picnic lol.

 One thing is for sure,

 One thing is for sure, that in the darkest moments of study, when the going got tough, up till 4 studying and writing, that letter, blown up to A2 on the wall gave us many hours of fun.

Finding roman forts by

Finding roman forts by dowsing? *re-adjusts tinfoil hat* doesn't sound so crazy to me.
