    Can anyone come up with a reasonable way to untangle this thread?

    Timeslip at Waterloo Station?

    http://forum.forteantimes.com/index.php?threads/timeslip-at-waterloo-station.17728/

    It started out discussing a specific timeslip incident involving a specific place.

    It's now fragmented and entangled itself with 3 discernible other topics:

    - Torsion / torsion wave theories
    - The 'Mr. Squirrel' timeslip story
    - The Bruce Gernon (Bermuda Triangle) timeslip(?) story

    Here's a proposed solution for collecting the Mr. Squirrel posts from 3 timeslip threads into one dedicated thread entitled:

    THE STRANGE SAGA OF MR. SQUIRREL (TIMESLIP; 1973; GREAT YARMOUTH)

    It appears to me this can be done with the following moves, without destroying whatever continuity the donor threads had.

    However ... Two of these maneuvers would involve copying rather than moving posts (as flagged below) to avoid such disruption in the original thread.

    The Transdimensional Gas Station

    Probably best to merge it withe general Timeslips thread.

    A couple of folks are apparently OK with having the Waterloo Time Slip thread continue as a grab-bag compendium, so ramonmercado's suggestion of merging it with the Time / Dimension Slips thread doesn't seem all that bad.

    Still, nobody can find anything about particular time slips or time slip theories unless they do some deep searching ...

    What are the odds of that happening? :roll:

    I have moved the Torsion Wave Discussion to a separate thread with a link back to the original thread.

    I've added a recent news item to this thread:

    The 'Satanic Renault'

    http://forum.forteantimes.com/index.php?threads/the-satanic-renault.18139/

    Since this thread already mentioned incidents other than the 'Satanic Renault' one in France, I recommend the thread title be changed to something like:

    The 'Satanic Renault' and Other Runaway Cars and Trucks
    OR
    Runaway Cars and Trucks: The 'Satanic Renault', etc.

    The Cumberland Spaceman thread:

    http://forum.forteantimes.com/index.php?threads/cumberland-spaceman.5003/

    ... has generated a sizable tangent regarding apparitions at the Tower of London.

    I don't find any thread dedicated to the Tower of London and apparitions.

    I recommend moving posts #380 - #404 (and any / all subsequent posts relating to the Tower stuff rather than the Cumberland Spaceman) to a new thread.

    For example - a new thread in the Ghosts section entitled:

    Apparitions and Ghosts at the Tower of London
