Impressive Creations Of Questionable Taste

There's no question that a lot of craftsmanship and creativity went into these skillful creations of dubious taste. It's just that they're also kind of also weird and scary. It takes a specific type of person to want to make a 20-foot peeing dachshund sculpture on the front of a building, but the world is...better... for it? At least there's no question that questionable taste and skill go hand in hand.

Absurd and Potentially Horrible DIY Projects

People's motivation to create things is sometimes stronger than their drive to make something tasteful of even useful. At heart, that's a good thing. But in practice, things can get weird. It usually goes one of two ways. For the problem solving pragmatist, there are low budget DIY solutions. And for the misguided artists, there are impressive creations of dubious taste.

Strangest Occurrences People Can't Logically Explain

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the weirdest things that happened to people that people simply can't logically explain. Sometimes you're out and about, going through your day's series of obligations, and then all of a sudden you witness what basically feels like a "glitch in the matrix" moment. This universe is brimming with far more mysteries than we ever really stop to stew over.

Quick Tumblr Thread On How Dolphins Started

As we've all had hammered into our heads from an early age, dolphins and whales are mammals. Put extremely simply, dolphins started when some kind of weird pig/rat/wolf/hippo creature figured land was a bad move and there were more opportunities back in the water. That in-between thing looks like a failed science experiment. Nature has produced some strange things, like this cold-blooded freak-devil cave goat. For some mythological biology, here's Tumblr's take on dragon evolution.

funny dolphin tumblr thread | just-shower-thoughts kind dick move create animals require air, then confine them freaking ocean water-based-introspection Follow If are talking about dolphins they used be wolf like creatures due scarcity food they had hunt water so they slowly evolved into water mammals, dolphins still have claw bones but they are unnecessary and dolphins will get rid them with time and will develop abilities breath under water (This also partially applies whales)

Real Life Optical Illusions and Double-Takery

Your brain is doing it's best to keep up with all the information your eyes throw at it, but sometimes things don't make sense. With some weird perspective, you can confuse yourself into thinking stuff is way too big or small, floating strangely, or something else entirely.

Real-Life Glitches People Experienced

Sometimes everyday life gets altered in a way that makes us think we're living in a simulation. Sometimes it's just a creepy moment, sometimes it's a strange coincidence. Either way, sometimes something so strange or unlikely happens that we just have to wonder if we're living in a boring, crappy matrix.

Weird Stuff People Saw In People's Houses

As much as you'd like to hide your shame, hoarded collections of doorknobs and evidences of your eccentric hobbies, sometimes someone else will have to enter your weird home. A plumber, pet sitter or maintenance employee is gonna need to get in there. And they see some really interesting things. Sometimes they don't even need to make it inside. Window washers see some bizarre things through the glass.

Extremely Specific and Overly Vague Shirts

Self expression is important, but it's unclear what anyone is trying to broadcast with a cursed shirt that just says something like "Big Time Ravioli Man." On the opposite side of the spectrum, an overly aggressive shirt that says something like "Watch out sissy, I'm a Forklift Driver" almost says too much.

Strange Illusions Caused By Weird Perspective

In an effort to try to recognize everything at a glance, eyes sometimes throw information at us that doesn't exactly make sense. Strange perspective can give us things that shouldn't exist, for instance, a valley inside of a fence post, or a cat with a human butt.

Weird Crimes People and Their Families Did

Everyone's sense of morality is different. Sometimes people steal stupid stuff for the thrill, or get caught up in extremely specific counterfeiting operations. None of these things are things any of us should be doing, but they still happen. And sometimes people only later learn that something is illegal after the fact.

Weirdest Things Tourists Noticed About Foreign Countries

As a tourist you can sometimes have those moments when various unique corners of the world completely humble you. Your worldview from wherever you came from suddenly seems completely outdated, or just purely insane. Or maybe it's something a bit more innocent, like the jumbo serving sizes one can find in America vs. other places in the world. Traveling always has a way of reminding each of us that there are an infinite amount of ways to do things.
