The townspeople of Oakville, Washington, were in for a surprise on August 7, 1994. Instead of their usual downpour of rain, the inhabitants of the small town witnessed countless gelatinous blobs falling from the sky. Once the globs fell, almost everyone in Oakville started to develop severe, flu-like symptoms that lasted anywhere from 7 weeks to 3 months. Finally, after exposure to the goo caused his mother to fall ill, one resident sent a sample of the blobs for testing.

Berlin, August 1961, the anniversary of the building of the Berlin Wall. With obvious apprehension, a young East German soldier glances about as he prepares to let a small boy pass through the emerging barrier.
