So, maybe getting out of the ocean was a very bright idea after all. What starts as a seemingly innocent little Tumblr thread on the baby oarfish ends up escalating into a series of insights about just how monstrously big the oarfish can end up being.

Twitter Thread: Man Goes To McDonald's, Strange Drive Thru Adventure Ensues

Real or not, this Twitter thread about a man's strange journey through a completely bizarre McDonald's drive thru is definitely one for the books. Fast food establishments have an uncanny knack for attracting all kinds of unexpected situations in this wild universe. Sometimes it's just entitled customers that are pitch fits about a whole bunch of nothing. Other times, it's the actual employees and they're trying to sell you apple pies of McDonald's dollar menu, at a discount.

Just in case you needed another friendly reminder on the value of locking your car doors, let this guy's investigation into seeing what could've set off his mom's car alarm be a lesson to you. With that being said, this has to be one of the most historically chill reactions of all time.

Oh good old Florida, you are ever full of surprises. In this case, we have a poor woman who was awoken by a raccoon straight up posted up in her Christmas tree. Like, are you kidding me? So many questions. We're just glad it all worked out, and that she was able to safely remove the raccoon from the premises.

Man, this lad tells a wild story about four bouncers being defeated by an unlikely foe. If anything this rollercoaster of a story should serve as a solid testament to the fact that you shouldn't ever judge a book by its cover.

Astronaut Chris Hadfield shows us what happens when you shake up a soda can beyond belief, and then open it. Basically a whole bunch of nothing. Also, Chris Hadfield has lived in space, on earth, and underwater. The dude is clearly too dangerous for this planet.

At least she didn't flip out. All we really see in the way of her reaction is a whole lot of infectious laughter. That must've been one hell of a shock to the system.

Sometimes you're out hiking around and all of a sudden you come across something that completely defies your expectations. Like a plane crash. But not any plane crash. A plane crash that was so recent that one of the passenger's razors still turns on. Now that's just wild.

Those boys were just out having a nice cheeky hour flying their planes when all of a sudden an Apache Attack helicopter showed up to completely change their day, and maybe their lives. You've got to appreciate the genuine level of unhinged enthusiasm that these guys brought to the table when the helicopter showed up. Certainly don't see that every day.

Craziest Butterfly Effects From People's Small Decisions

It's truly crazy just how much of an impact one small decision can end up having in the grand scheme of things. Or maybe what we merely conceptualize as being a "small decision" on the surface level, is nothing of the sort. The universe is weird, and likes to keep us on our toes. Maybe that's the inherently fun part about living -- is not knowing what's coming around the corner, and certainly not knowing what a minor move will go on to cause.

What a time to be alive. Spinning an apple fast enough to literally get it to explode is one of those things that you probably never thought you'd actually see happen, a couple decades ago or so. But here we are. In all of its glory you can feast your eyes on an apple that's spun so fast that it explodes. And, you can see it all happen in slo-mo. Beautiful stuff.

Seems like a stereotypical quiet day on the farm until you see those guinea hens giving chase to that unsuspecting Amazon driver like none other. We can only imagine what must've been going through that Amazon driver's head when he heard those guinea hens coming up on him.
