Tales of the Strange, Weird and Bizarre

Updated on January 5, 2015

I don’t know about you but I like a reality break now and again. Once a month at least I like to read about something that I have a hard time believing but which is supposedly true anyway. I also like to come across ideas that I absolutely do not believe in any way shape or form but which are nonetheless wonderful and fantastic, and some folks say they believe in them anyway.

Weird List

The kind of things I am talking about can best be illustrated by make a list of them and mentioning them without any background information.

1) There will be no Muslims on Mars.

2) Some mummies were buried in honey.

3) Mummies were ground up and used as paint.

4) Sufficiently enlightened people can become rainbows.

5) The government is hiding a decapitated alien's rainbow corpse from us.

6) A man decapitated and ate his seatmate on a bus because he thought the seatmate was a space alien.

7) Some women are dying their under arm hair rainbow colors.

8) Police arrested a man who allegedly decapitated his mother--without killing him.

9) There is such a thing as a pink lake.

10) Some criminals are rewarded by the government for breaking federal laws.

11) UFOs come from the CIA

12) Angry nudists (need I say more?)

13) Some men wear animal suits and are called “furries”

14) Some men wear rubber women suits and God only knows why or even wants to know why.

15) Folks used to brush their teeth with urine

16) In some cultures around the world, urine is still considered a powerful medicine.

What A Friend We Have in Google

If I forget to explain one of these oddities never forget that Google is your friend.



Now as to why there should be no Muslims on Mars, a holy edict called a fatwa has been issued declaring that since going to Mars is tantamount to suicide no Muslim is allowed to do it. By the way, the trip to Mars as currently envisioned is a one way trip. The new Martians will almost certainly die on Mars if they don’t die on the way. It is thought that the radiation exposure alone during the long flight to Mars may eventually be deadly to the travelers.


Honey Mummies

As for the honey mummies, some people thought that eating mummies was good for you. There was a tale, which may be apocryphal that old men would volunteer to be honey mummies. They would stop eating anything but honey before they died and then when they died they were supposedly buried in honey.

Mummy Brownest

Yes mummies were ground up and used as paint. The color was called “mummy brown”. They only stopped this practice when they ran out of mummies.

Be the Rainbow

There is an idea in some mystical faiths in something called the rainbow body. If you become pure enough then you can attain the rainbow body and your regular earthly body will disappear.

Showing Off Your Pits

Some women don’t want to shave their underarm hair. In what appears to be a case of if you got it flaunt it; they dye the hair rainbow colors.

Alien Rainbows

Everyone knows that alien corpses are grey so the rainbow bodied alien is probably a myth.

Can Breathe

Given the number of stories about that some policemen could not manage to arrest unarmed men without killing them, it is interesting that a man who supposedly cut off his mother head was arrested and he is still alive. In fact there have been several incidences wherein folks who actually fought with everyone including police and shot at everyone including police were arrested and are now very much alive. There are also any number of serial killers and mass shooters who can still breathe even after being taken into custody.

In the Pink

Some say pink lakes are caused by salts some say by algae some say by algae consuming certain salts.

Funding Foreign Criminals

It has always been true that not only can some folks break any law they want, but they get rewarded for it too.

Remember that giant Wall Street melt down that was supposed to ruin all the world’s economies? Do you also remember that the crooks who pulled that trick got bailed out the government? That was one instance.

In the current instance foreign criminals who broke into the country illegally and illegally took jobs and illegally avoided taxes or who paid taxes with stolen social security numbers will be rewarded with green cards, jobs, health care, and possible citizenship. They will even get to bring their family members into the country too. The government will lie and say you won’t have to pay for all this but be honest, you know you will. You always do. And yes, it's all about buying votes with your tax dollars. It always is.

Naked and Angry

Than angry nudists thought someone was photographing them. Maybe the nudists were morons since I will bet every one of them owns a camera phone. I will bet every one of them also knows what a “selfie” is as well.

Urine Therapy

Some still swear by urine therapy though many doctors swear at it. Urine, even from healthy people is not sterile because it contacts cells from the exterior or the body.

Still some think urine helps in healing certain illnesses.

Some believe that bathing the hands with urine will strengthen them. Others believe that bathing the feet with urine can help in matters such as athletes foot.

In some esoteric disciplines part of the regime is to drink ones own urine.

In space astronauts drink recycle water from their urine. It would be difficult to carry up into to space all the fluids that humans need to survive so recycling urine into drinking water is a must.


It's Not Paranoid if It's True

The Central Intelligence Agency has claimed that its activities with secret spy planes may have been the cause of at least half of the UFO sightings in the 50s and 60s. So the truth is out there and the truth is the CIA did it. We have met the enemy and it’s not the butler or even us, it’s the CIA. And in conclusion: You see, it was a government conspiracy!

      Dougalbunny, I recently read that some folks swear by washing their hair with urine. In some countries they think drinking cow urine healthy. Before the current MERS scare, some used to think drinking camel urine was healthy.

      Be blessed!

      Well that made for an interesting and amusing read poetryman! I recently read an article about a guy that would routinely drink his own urine for health benefits, but think I'll leave that one to the astronauts and odd bods of the world!

      Greetings from weird world Au fait. Thanks for dropping by. Have pity on those poor politicians. They are forced to spend every penny of your tax dollar and then some just to buy your vote. Your vote is expensive!

      Interesting list. One need not even go to the extreme you seem to have done to find these strange ideas. One can merely listen to our politicians talk and often they say things that make a person wonder what planet they're really from. Unlikely any of them of either party will get rainbow bodies.

      rls8994 I hear they are fresh out of mummies. They used the last one to make some paint called "mummy brown" . I think one day they may replace mummies with zombies but then we will have that pesky Zombie Apocalypse to deal with as well.

      Well I usually eat biscuits with honey but I am sure biscuits with honey flavored mummies would most certainly be a lot healthier, being that it would contain that added protein :)

      Lol this was fun to read :)

      I have heard of some of these things before. Some I know to be true and some not. Eating mummies would have to be something I would never like to do, with honey or not! This is a very interesting hub!
