Creepy And Mysterious Things People Saw at Sea

The sea is just too big for people not to have complicated feelings about, especially when it comes to things like the still on-patrol submarines of the U.S. Navy. There are tales of hallucinations, weird natural events, and rare sightings among the many creepy things people saw at sea. Maybe it's the isolation. Maybe it's the constant bobbing and omnipresent exhaustion of anyone working at sea. Whatever it is, weird stuff happens out there.

Things People Did Before They Were Cool

Almost everyone has a story of seeing some now-legendary band for 5 bucks, or can claim to be the first person to invent a now-popular sandwich. If anything it's the people who got into bitcoin early on accident that we all envy the most. At least we can all be forward thinkers in our own minds. It's fun to be on the leading edge of good things before they get ruined by money and popularity, but there's just as much a chance that a huge trend will quickly become something no one talks about anymore.

Weird and Wild Junk People Tried Selling Online

When it comes to selling random crap online, people are limited only by their imaginations, and that's kind of a problem. They sad that one man's trash is another man's treasure, but we'd be hard pressed to find the person who would consider soiled mattresses, creepy mannequins and hot dogs of mysterious origin as "treasure." Does that stop anyone from trying to sell their horrible junk online? Absolutely not.

Inarguable Signs that Kids are Stupid and Weird

There's no question that kids are stupid and weird. We remember being afraid of getting flushed down the toilet as much as anyone else. All we can say is it's a shame that the natural state of a human being is to be so harmfully stupid. How did any of us make it this far? Growing up, was anyone else astounded that car blinkers somehow predicted exactly which way a car would turn every time? Seriously, there are too many clear signs that kids are weird and dumb.

Skillful Creations of Absurd Taste

One of the great things about being human is having the ability to manifest our dreams and tastes in the from of physical things. We can build whatever impressive creation of dubious taste we want. Want a cheese log carved into a bust of Nixon? Go for it. Want to be buried in a coffin shaped like a hamburger? Also possible. While the things people like might be of questionable taste, the creations are still impressive.

Things from People's Childhoods They Later Realized Were Weird

Everybody's family is a little weird in some way, but as a kid, you don't know any better. This leads to most of us having an awkward moment later on with friends, a scene along the lines of "hold on, not everyone's family has one day of the month where their dad eats as many cans of tuna as possible and then comes over and breathes on everyone?" or "wait a second, my mom always told me the blue parking spaces up front were for people in the very busy mom club?" Life is full of discovery. At least it's a little better than people later realizing something was illegal.

Creepy Times People's Kids Mentioned "Past Lives"

Kids are weird and they lie a lot, but there's a really strange tendency for three and four-year-olds to mention "back when I flew helicopters in 'nam" or "my previous mother wasn't as nice as you." Is it a weird combination of dreams they had, the power of suggestion, and the fact that kids sometimes don't know what they're saying? Almost certainly. Is it also extremely creepy when a very small child insists that they were a crooked cop who was buried in an unmarked grave? Very much so, yeah. Here's a twitter thread of people's kids saying similarly creepy stuff.

Twitter Thread: How Taylor Swift Cut Out Her Predatory Label

Whether you're a fan of Taylor Swift's music or not, it's interesting to learn about the long, long history of musicians signing horrible deals early in their careers and getting completely shafted later on when it comes to the rights of their own music. It's crazy to think that there are recording artists today don't own their own music, like we're still living in some old-timey Motown story of forgotten legends and cartoonishly evil businessmen. @ThatsMauvelous details the weird legal stunts Swift had to pull to get the rights to her music back from her old label.

Wild Junk People Tried Selling on the Webs

We live in a world defined by stuff. There's just so much of it all, and sometimes we have so much that we don't know where it should go. We ascribe value to that stuff, whether it be in sentimental, monetary, or in joke form. People end up trying to sell that weird stuff online. Does anyone really want a repurposed couch bicycle or "rare" Dorito? No. Nevertheless, people keep trying to sell their weird and ridiculous junk.

Impressive Creations of Dubious Taste

There's no denying that people are very creative as well as incredibly skilled at making such interesting things. That said, who really wants a toe bed? Maybe this stuff resonates with at least a few people out there, but on the whole, a toilet guitar isn't gonna be something that a lot of us want to buy. It's just a drop in the bucket of the many impressive creations of questionable taste.

Weird and Wild Things Kids Did At School

When you get a few hundred to a thousand developing adults into one building and try to get them to follow rules for 7 hours a day, you are setting up a recipe for weirdness. Some kids wanted attention. Other kids (most of us) were trying not to be cringeworthy and failed. Other kids (also most of us) were just bored. We all remember a day at school, trying to get through some drab math exercises when another kid would lean over and say "dude, did you hear about what Jeremy did?" And what an interesting time we'd all have recounting Jeremy's shenanigans. It's not just the kids, sometimes teachers say weird and wild junk too.

Wacky Reasons People Called 911

There are absolutely tons of good reasons to call 911, but there are way more totally stupid reasons to call them. A suspicious person lurking around? Sure. Someone's dog looked at you weird? Maybe not. Sometimes people panic when they're scared and frustrated, and 911 dispatch gets to hear a story about a tree someone dislikes. For some other crime-adjacent shenanigans, here are things people later discovered were illegal.

The Worst Things People Ate Out of Politeness

As generally decent people, we pride ourselves on displaying a dizzying amount of decorum as houseguests. We will gladly sit at a great aunt's table and swill cloyingly sweet tea just to smile and glowingly lie through our rapidly decaying teeth over how grateful we are for the privilege. We will laboriously swallow dry biscuits and tamp them down with stalks of celery like we're muskets loading themselves. Sure, we'd rather not, but that social contract is nigh unbreakable. We'd much rather spend an entire night uncomfortable than say an unkind word about a mother-in-law's dismally soggy quiche. Go us and our willingness to tolerate these cursed food abominations. The things people eat to be polite are some of the worst foods people have eaten. Pour one out for those of us who wish we could pour this lukewarm soup into the waste basket.
