Wrote Kevin Kelly:

I don't care what you say, the World Weekly News was an awesome publication.

Like the Men in Black said, you get to hear about alien landings months in advance of any other source.

I subscribed to it for years.

I had it mailed to my office at Wired.

I read it because it had the greatest headlines EVER.

Before the web, it was the the single best portal into wonderful weirdness, obscure insanity, the cultural id, urban legends, and the gestalt of our times.

Now entire decades of its epic awesome back issues are available for free here.

The way we like it.

Fair warning: there goes both the day and your mind.

Kevin Kelly has never quite understood what's in front of him.

This way better than I expected - I didn't know it was intentionally funny.

An imagined story:
"Researchers combine horse's ass with orangutan head,
and it can talk! Though not in coherent sentences.
It now wants to be president."
