OUTRAGEOUS, OUTRAGEOUSER & OUTRAGEOUSEST (OR JUST PLAIN WEIRD)



While going through my main source of information to verify that everything I post here is 100% true (the internet) I came across all this great stuff!!

Earlier this month, Holly Cantere looked up to see a 4.8-pound coconut crab walking down a busy street in her suburban Honolulu neighborhood.
"It just kept walking, like there was not a care in the world when it crossed the street,”she told KHON-2. “Everybody slowed down like it was a pedestrian.”
The largest terrestrial arthropods in the world, coconut crabs can grow as big as nine pounds and three feet wide, and they can live as long as 120 years. They've been known to shred trash cans, eat cats and tear up gardens. They’re so avaricious that one theory to explain Amelia Earhart’s demise says she didn’t drown, but crashed on the remote Nikumaroro atoll and was eaten by coconut crabs that then scattered her bones.
They got their name because while mere humans need a machete to tear into a coconut, the crab's strong pincers can easily crack one.
Although they are native to islands throughout the Pacific and Indian oceans, coconut crabs (or "robber crabs" because they scamper off with your stuff) are seldom found in the continental United States and are considered an invasive species in Hawaii.

A man born with TWO penises has released a tell-all book about what it's like to live with the extremely rare condition.
The man, who calls himself DoubleD***Dude, came to public attention earlier this year when he led a Q&A session on Reddit about what is medically known as diphallia.
He was born with two 10 inch, fully-functional penises, and claims to have slept with up to 1,000 men and women.
But after achieving notoriety on the online forum, he has now decided to reveal more details of his life in an E-autobiography titled: "Double Header: My Life with Two Penises".

Neil Olson put up a Christmas tree when two of his sons went off to war in 1974, vowing not to take it down until all six children returned to his Wisconsin home for Christmas. The same tree, he says, is still standing in his living room.
Olson's oldest son was injured in the Vietnam War, and his disability has stopped him from returning to Wausau from Washington state for Christmas. So the tree has stayed up, still covered in the same ornaments, tinsel and lights as the day Olson decorated it. And the needles, though yellowing, are still there.

It seemed an unlikely excuse from a man suspected of breaking into cars at an auto yard. But police say it appears a Norwalk man was being truthful when he insisted he was just checking the vehicles to make sure they were locked.
Employees at Coating's Auto Body caught 20-year-old Alexander Louis Friday and held him for police.
Louis told police he was simply making sure each car was locked and if he found one that wasn't, he would open the door and lock it.
Police reviewed security video and found his story seemed to check out. They could find no evidence of him going into any of the cars or stealing anything.
Louis isn't off the hook completely. He still faces a trespassing charge.

The CIA admitted that many UFO reports in the 50's & 60's
were probably the result of testing the U2 spy plane.

Play-Doh stopped making their extruder because people
thought it looked like some body part or other:

And I don't mean to be sacrilegious,
but it seems Jesus is everywhere.

In the dust after an explosion: 

 In bird poop:
 

 In a cut log:

In a crab:

I've been watching SCI (the Science Channel) & when I see their slogan "Question Everything" I always ask myself, "Why should I?"----fishducky

  2. That poor double penis guy. I suspect he will be torn in more directions than most men.
    And yes, that suit is a travesty. And a tragedy.
    Weird is good though. Very good.

  4. There is a door in the Jasper Hospital that made the TV show That's Amazing back in the 80's because people could see Jesus I the grain. Go figure.

  5. The crab/Amelia Erhart story just about grossed me out. Ugh! And the man with two penises! Oh my god that brings up many thoughts that I don't want to entertain on a Friday morning. You are on a roll this morning.

  6. LOTS of great stuff here! I really enjoyed it. I never heard of coconut crabs before, which of course, means I'll have to do some research on them now. Yum... they have some BIG claws! Talking about big, that guy with two penises? You say he was BORN with two fully functional ten-inchers, huh? His mom must have had to use special diapers. :) (I know that isn't what you meant, but the idea totally cracked me up.)

    Happy weekend!

  9. It is useless to have two 10" penises. It would take so much blood to make them stiff that the brain would be deprived of blood and he would pass out.

    1. OK, but how do you choose which one to amputate?

Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
