What happens after we die?

Are there intelligent beings watching us from space?

Could the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot really exist without more evidence?

And where do my socks disappear to in the wash?

No big celebrations or parades or gift giving. Just wondering. And trying to answer some of those questions.

Whatever you do, it’s Curious Events Day. don’t be afraid to ask the big questions. And just have fun.
