During the Vietnam War, some Americans avoided being drafted into the military by fleeing to Canada. Now, anyone who wishes to avoid difficult situations might consider a future journey to Canada–to join the Canadian army!
It has been reported that an invisibility cloak is being developed for the Canadian military. This newfangled technology, called Quantum Stealth, bends light around the soldier or military equipment creating the illusion of invisibility.
This promises to make future warfare extremely bizarre. Opposing armies equipped with this ultimate camouflage will wander about the battlefield endlessly looking for a target. While the war might last an eternity, at least no one will get hurt!
But I can think of more practical uses:
Don’t want to be found by the ex-wife, debt collectors or other sorts of personal enemies? Put on this nifty gear or jump into an invisible tank and your troubles disappear–along with you!
There are loads of religious cults out there. Average, ordinary, everyday people happily worship all sorts of strange stuff: from godlike space aliens, to arcane deities, to historical figures and celebrities, to pseudoscientific concepts and other things that seem just plain absurd.
Included is a cult that literally worships a sports hero.
The Church of Maradona reportedly has over 80,000 members, and they worship at the (quite capable) feet of Argentine soccer superstar Diego Maradona. Followers are inspired to name their children Diego, strictly obey ten religious commandments, and faithfully recite the prayer “Our Diego”.
I’d convert, but I’m presently a member of the Church of Fish Burritos.
I realize I’m no gourmet, but egads! Try to digest this!
One fun website that contains a bunch of weird and cool stuff lists eight people who have unconventional diets. The grotesque grub these folks chow down on makes my mixed cereal dinners and cold pizza breakfasts look delightful and nutritious.
For example, anyone for some road kill? You know, dead squirrels and possums can be prepared in so many mouth-watering ways, why would anybody devour anything else? And it’s free! Check out the frugal guy who enjoys rats, crows, hedgehogs, snakes, and possibly other unfortunate stray who-knows-what discovered on the local highway. One flattened animal’s misfortune is his good fortune!
Okay, maybe you have some redneck cousins who like to harvest and chomp down on fresh roadkill, and that diet doesn’t strike you as terribly unusual. So what about the girl who can eat nothing but spoonfuls of Tic Tacs? Or the brilliant professor who lost some unhealthy weight on a Twinkie diet? Or the pleasant fellow who has eaten 25,000 Big Macs? (It’s no wonder billions and billions have been sold.) Surely you’ll consider one of these diets to be at least slightly unusual.
This post is categorized under Cool Deals (for the free road kill), but for the Twinkies, Big Macs and Tic Tacs you’ll need to find a coupon.
Yes, gentle ladies and gentle men, the water-breathing superhero and ruler of Atlantis, Aquaman, was in fact an actual Martian. This tremendous discovery was recently discussed in great detail by astronomers, theorists and other world-renowned experts.
Have you been questioning your own sanity lately? Here’s an online test that will determine precisely how nuts you are. (Assuming you are nuts.)
The higher the score, the further around the bend you’ve gone. Achieve a perfect score, and you’re perfectly bonkers.
Okay, so this test probably isn’t scientific, but most of the questions seem fairly reasonable. If you believe you can fly, or that you are some sort of deity, or that you are a space alien visiting Earth, chances are a connection in your noodle isn’t quite right. And if you believe Elvis still lives–hey, wait a minute, a significant percentage of ordinary Americans believe Elvis still lives…
So you think humans are very weird? You’re correct!
Here’s an amusing page that lists 50 odd facts about that uniquely bizarre species homo sapiens.
One happy example: in the event you are sentenced to be guillotined, you will remain conscious for 15 to 20 seconds after decapitation. (But during that time, you probably won’t remember the half hour you once spent as a single cell. And it won’t matter that your hair is virtually indestructible.)
Be amazed, entertained and perplexed by these draw-dropping facts about YOU!
I swear I’ve seen some of these stylin’ simians sauntering around the mall and hanging out on the corner looking not like chumps but cool chimps. I’ve seen some of their more evolutionarily advanced cousins hereabouts as well.
Wow, piercings really make these primates appear advanced. Big steel piercings always make hairy, slouching animals appear civilized. I like some of the hairdos, too. Do they make hair gel just for monkey fur?
