There is this guy in my neighborhood that must be training for an ironman or something because he is always out riding his bike. I have been out walking at 5am and seen him riding down the street singing and doing a little dance while on his bike. It seems like everytime I see him he is doing something to make his exercises more interesting.
I was walking through North hollywood and high-fived a man dressed at Cpt Jack Sparrow while he was riding a beach cruiser. Guy juggling torches back when Venice was cool. Things in West Hollywood I can't even describe, but it was Halloween and it involved a very large man with very little clothing. Still haunts me to this day.
I was running downtown one day and I forgot that it was Elvis week. I turned one corner and well over half the people I passed were dressed like Elvis. Some of them were way to big to be wearing something that tight.
The strangest thing I have seen is a woman who had a cobra snake with its young ones in a basket. She demands money from people on the street in order to see them. It is scary to see a woman carrying a cobra.
You must not live in the Pacific Northwest. I see cyclists smoking all the time out here.
As for my weirdest sighting, I once saw an egg cracked on a sidewalk with a frying pan drawn around it in chalk. I guess some kids were trying to see if they really could fry an egg on the sidewalk in hot weather.
Last week, in Oregon, I saw a man in a wedding dress. His face was painted like a kabuki warrior, and he was pushing a shopping cart filled with empty milk jugs. I have to say that it was the strangest thing I have ever seen. Except for the man juggling basketballs while riding a unicycle on the bike path.
I saw two bats mating on the street. It was the strangest animal act I've been witness to. I was right next to them and wished that I could catch it on video. Of course, this was prior to the days of smartphones!
I remember as a young man climbing up Rainer Mountian in Washington state. Eventhough it was still summer in the hights of the mountian it was snowing still and I walked passed a small waterfall that had frozen solid. At the top of the waterfall stood a mountian goat. I startled him as I passed by and this King the the frozen top actually slipped and almost fell. It was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen, he actually looked more shocked by his own slip then by this stranger climbing up where no human had any right being. Immediatelly I started back down, after all, if this creature built for the icy environment couldn't keep his footing what the hell was I doing there - someone who had a hard enough time keeping his footing without the ground being frozen.
When I was in Key West my friend Paul and I walked down the main drag, and every where we went there were cuban homeless people walking around with rugs on their shoulders. Also saw a lady with a broom beating a group of them that were camped out on her front lawn.
Also in Key West, we saw a guy who looked like a head hunter from Gilligan's Island standing frozen on a rock, and people were putting change in his coffee can, until a big wind came up and blew his coffee can down the street, and we helped him chase it down. I said next time put a rock in the bottom, it won't blow away.
The sickest thing I ever saw was in the parking lot at a Taco Bell, a pair of mens underwear, and a dildo laying in the grass, and a used condom.
The scariest, walking through the woods near my parents house, and being less than ten feet from a wolverine. Scariest looking thing I ever saw.
Well, this example is one that could be considered both unique and perhaps unusual or out of the ordinary; thus, strange in our world. I happened upon a scene at the end of a logging road, in which a lone wolf chased down and drowned a moose calf in a pond. It really was extraordinary and brilliant primarily because by drowning the calf the wolf prevented the "kill" from becoming an olfactory extravaganza...
I went on a long two to three hour walk with my husband when we first moved into the area where we now live. We just walked, without any planning or direction and ended up in a rural area, walking down a narrow loan.
Realizing we had walked out of our suburb we immediately took the next turn back towards where we lived. The area was mostly small farms and large properties. As we turned the corner, we were greeted by three friendly goats who were outside one of the houses. This house was fenced. But these goats were standing on the same side as us.
The goats looked up and took notice of us and we acknowledged them in return. As we continued to head back towards the more populated area where we lived, the three goats decided to follow us and for the next next 15 to 20 minutes we played a game of loose the goats with them. If we sped up and ran, so did they. If we slowed right down and came to a stop, they would do the same even if they had over taken us apparently to take the lead.
My husband seemed a little petrified by their friendliness and I had to keep stopping , as I was in stitches with laughter imagining them following us all the way home. There was absolutely no way we could have the goats come and stay with us.
So we stopped at the next farm house while the goats waited for us outside and discovered that the goats were well known for being notorious escape artists and they belonged to the owners of the house on the corner. So, we walked them back. After trying to find out if someone was home and not having any response, we opened the gate of the house and led the goats back into the yard. Really hope we had the right house.
When in Key West on a walk with some family we saw two police officers arresting an obvioulsy drunk and seemingly homless, or at least very poor, woman. That was sort of odd because it was mid day. What was really odd is when my brother said: "Oh, that's (her name). I see her a lot there...." Ah, what is routine to some is odd to another.
What's the strangest thing you have had for Breakfast, instead of usual Cereal or Toast?Just last weekend, I had a big slice of birthday cake with coffee, for breakfast - given to me at a birthday party the previous...
Driving home in the rain today, listening to the radio, I heard them talking about this very thing and they were telling the story of some 44 year old woman who apparently sent three very bizarre emails in her...
As I child we loved to eat sheeps brains ,four little girls excitedly gathered around the kitchen table with a teaspoon in hand eagerly awaiting the steaming morsel to arrive (cooked sheeps head)......of course there is...
