A rather ominous delivery arrived in our city two weeks ago.
Marked “United States Air Force”, these missiles started a cyclone of rumours. The most prevalent rumour was that the missiles were headed north of Nanaimo to Nanoose Bay, site of the Canadian Forces Maritime Experimental and Test Ranges, where the Canadian and US navies collaboratively test fire torpedoes. Local forums and media were on fire with public outrage… until one observant fellow noticed that the rail line used for this train is only serviceable for a few kilometers.
It turned out those missiles were arriving to nuke Godzilla.
(The new Godzilla movie has been shooting here in Nanaimo for several weeks.)
