People's Most Wildly Unexpected Moments

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about people's craziest "you don't see that every day" moments. Life has a funny way of surprising us just when we're settling into our respective routines. As you get older and grow more accustomed to being endlessly surprised by whatever life decides to throw your way on a given day, you pretty much can just settle on into a philosophy of expecting the unexpected.

Maybe it's all about carrying no fear in your heart. Maybe this guy's just exuding such an overwhelming presence of love that the crocodile isn't even thinking twice about attacking him. Who knows. What I do know is that this croc is out there looking like a modern day dinosaur.

Just in case you didn't know at this point, the whole Battlebots scene is nothing short of a brutal, gladiatorial spectacle. These dudes aren't playing games. It's a good thing that they didn't cheap out on the bulletproof glass.

Man oh man, you just never know if your nice little outing at the lake with your significant other is about to be interrupted by quite the intense, entirely surprising helicopter flyby. Could always look at it as a free air show.

Um, I'd be very curious to see how this guy would react if you told him the world was about to end. Would he even be fazed? Or would he just shrug the whole announcement off with mystifying indifference? Probably the latter.

Some people end up living down those moments where it feels like they're in the middle of an actual fairytale. Like this dude, and the fact that ended up pulling off a poker tourney victory from a parking lot, to sweet, golden tune of $160K.

While the noise that we hear in this video is absolutely giving off some unnerving, horrific vibes, it's equally mystifying to behold the mushroom hunter's superhuman level of chill. It looks like he's planning on returning to that same spot for another video, and we're honestly ready for it.

So, apparently these Sixgill sharks can get up to 11-14 feet. Reports also indicate that they're generally harmless (unless they see camera flashes), like to chill out in the deep depths, and are known to hang out closer to the surface at nighttime. So basically, if you're a diver who likes to go for night dives in the Puget Sound, you might come across one of these behemoths.

Weird Tricks That Always Work For People

You've probably come across someone showing off one of these tricks, or made the discovery for yourself at some point. This life is brimming with mysteries, and unexpected developments. For instance, the fact that dead batteries bounce on a hard surface, and good batteries don't. Never know when that might come in handy. Or, maybe you were cooking up a decadent feast and want to remove the smell of onions/garlic from your hands, and now you know that rubbing a metal spoon against the aromas will get the job done.

Just imagine if they had two monster smoke rings collide. Like actually what would happen? Maybe nothing at all. That being said, this massive contraption would be way too much fun to play around with.
