And no matter how savvy you think you are, you are sure to find in this collection of over 200 tales at least one story you would have sworn was true.

After reading this, I can't help but wonder, who exactly is this collective "friend of a friend" that witnesses all this bizarre and sometimes unsettling occurrences?
