There's the ordinary, and then there's the extraordinary. If seeing extraordinary things was ordinary, well, then the extraordinary would become ordinary.

Some of the pics here are extraordinary. Some are simply more than ordinary. In any case, though, you won't see anything that's expected.

"My job has a room for taking a nap. The room also has a gigantic roll of paper towels in case you have a cold."

This is a great move by whoever runs this workplace. Personally, I would find it really hard to resist the temptation of the cozy nap room.

"This ice patch I found that looks like a feather."

People love to hate on cold climates, but snow and ice can do some pretty unexpected stuff. Case in point: this feathery ice. It's uncanny, and makes you wonder how it all works.

"Found a fox skeleton on the beach today."

There's something about seeing a predator's skeleton, with teeth intact, that immediately makes it look like some kind of monster. And to its prey, it really was a monster.

"This 'Remove Before Flight' pin was not removed before the flight."

Hopefully this was discovered after the plane was safely back on the ground. Finding this at cruising altitude would cause some anxiety.

"My brother found a .50 bullet encased in coral at the beach today."

If this bullet could talk, I'd love to ask it some questions. Namely: when and where were you fired, and what's the deal with all the coral?

"Minecraft player designed this house."

It's good to get natural light in your abode and all that, but there's also something to be said for privacy and aesthetics. You know who loves this design, though? Anybody who sells curtains.

"Dublin Airport didn't think this through..."

I'm guessing this example of poor design was discovered approximately five seconds after this cart corral was used for the first time.

"There was one heart shaped treat in my dog's bone shaped treats."

Some people would see this as random happenstance, while others would take it as a sign.

"These columns."

Yes, the columns are certainly eye-catching, but when you continue to study this photo, it gets worse. That second-floor balcony is hideous.

"What you staring at? I'll shred you with my boots."

This is a striking pair of boots, no doubt. You'd just want to be careful if you were moving around in them, that's all.

"My right hand has a single crease, which goes from left to right without breaking."

I thought, "Aren't all hands like this?" and then checked my hand. Nope, turns out this guy has highly unusual hand creases.

"This fully underground house in Las Vegas."

Here's a glimpse of our dystopian future should we ever become involved in nuclear war: underground shelters that (poorly) replicate real homes. It almost makes you miss the outside world more having to paint it on.

"Found this on a walk."

The person who snapped this photo figured it was a joke or gag, and not a murder in progress. I'll choose to view it that way, too.

"This 'built-in' eavestrough I saw."

reddit | JKLCS

Gutters are usually an architectural afterthought, slapped onto the side of a building after construction is completed. These ones buck the trend. I wonder how much it cost to incorporate them like that?

"A piece of ice cream dropped from my spoon as I was scooping and it looks like a tiny shark."

This person shows some great observational skills. Personally, I'd be too distracted by the prospect of ice cream to notice something like this.

Sports fans know what it's like to have a deep, unyielding, unreasonable love for a given team. I can only assume that's what's going on here — and that they want everyone else to know about it, too.

"In case Florence + the Machine comes on shuffle."

I guess if you're going to keep a musical instrument in your shower caddy, a tambourine is a decent choice. Beats bagpipes, or, say, a tuba, at the very least.

"Lamp posts being turned into a dual purpose electric car charging points in some parts of England."

It's pretty cool to see something that's already part of our infrastructure in great abundance — light poles — turned into something forward-thinking.

"Found a mini Millennium Falcon inside a plastic cover on medical equipment I install."

Is this a true Easter Egg or just random chance? Either way, there's nothing wrong with a little Star Trek in your day. Hey-o.

"The Riverside Bomb Squad found two rocket launchers in a dumpster at my school."

On one hand, it must be cool to see a rocket launcher in the flesh. On the other hand, if you went to this school, you might be a tad unnerved.
