JF Ptak Science Books Post 2143
Nothing quite says "bizarro" like the bizarre1--and there has been plenty of that on this blog. There have been a number of places that I have identified as Bizarro Worlds, but so far it seems that the only self-proclaimed Bizarro World is this one, from the Superman2 comic book--a place that was the opposite of the Superman-y traits that made Superman Superman. Somehow to equate bizarreness on this world everything appeared as geometrical shapes with basically no sphere or rounded edges. (How Braque or Picasso and company would have reacted to this is unclear.)
It is evident that Bizarro World inhabits a place in the universe that allows for bizarre things to happen, a sort of bizarrograviation, that also allows for shadow to be cast in space without regard to light source.
It is a lovely to addition--if only by this brief note, to a continuing series on Extra-Earths. This is an Earth, and it is Extra, hence: Extra Earth. Some of the other Extra-Earth posts include:
--Extra-Earth Humano-Alien Souls From Outer Space Repopulate Earth-Hell!!(??),
--Mondo Bizarro, Science Afflictions and the Dubious Mind—Bad Science, Part 1. NYC in Space (?!)
and some others, all quite findable on this blog via the Google search at left.
I've just noticed that these Extra-Earth posts share something else that few of the other 2500+ posts on this site do not: extra exclamation points!
And to end, I should point out that this is not the first time I've encountered a square Earth, bizarro or not:
