Today's Word: Fortean

Sometimes, the world is a strange and mercurial place.

You can't explain it.

Neither can I!

But that's ok, because we have words to describe even the bizarre! Fortean is an adjective that is used when referring to something that turns your world upside down.

For instance, the world lately has seen an upsurge of fortean politics. Machinations and trickery abound! Try to make sense of it and you'll get bombarded with conflicting stories from both sides!

Fortean can also be used to ascribe supernatural or mystical connotations to otherwise mundane things. Maybe you have a friend who has a fortean ability to gauge your mood and knows just how to make things right! That's a good friend to have! You should buy them a soda!
