20 Pics We Don't Really Have Explanations For, But They're Pretty Cool

There are some things in this world that, no matter how much you try to make sense of them, just defy all explanations. But hey, as long as they look cool, you can't really argue too much.

And these pictures, well, you could say that they make absolutely no sense. Which is fine, because they're still pretty fun to look at.

"This electric piano at my high school is so old that it has a floppy disk slot."

You know this school probably hasn't upgraded its technological equipment in at least a couple decades if there are still floppy disk slots around.

I bet most of the kids at that school would have no idea what that is, too.

"My lava lamp looks like it’s from another realm."

Lava lamps always look kind of funky, but this one is... even weirder. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the lava part isn't supposed to look like that. To be honest, it looks kind of like dog droppings.

"This telephone pole's confusing predicament."

I take it they're in the middle of replacing that pole? I have no idea how they can cut it in half without electrocuting themselves, but I guess that's why they're the professionals and I'm not.

"Not every day you see random cows walking down the path behind your house."

I feel like, the further away from a dairy farm you live, the weirder something like this would be. But like, even if you did live close to a farm, this would still be weird.

"The weird way the cats in my neighborhood sit."

I feel like the person who took this photo may have interrupted some kind of neighborhood cat meeting. They're probably about to discuss a mouse shortage, or which other cat they want to kick out of the squad or something.

"How the wind naturally blew the leaves last night."

If I didn't know any better, I'd just assume that someone used a leaf blower and blew those leaves in that shape, and then left it without actually cleaning any of the leaves up. But as it turns out, it was the wind that did this, and has no plans of helping out more.

"These trees that grew through the door of a car."

It's not even the fact that this abandoned car is hanging out in a forest. It's the fact that entire trees grew right through the space where the door window used to be. Someone really tore this car apart and left it for years, huh.

"When I opened my front door I found a Praying Mantis staring at me."

I feel like this is the kind of thing that only happens to, like, the chosen one in a novel or something. I guess this means the person who found this mantis has to go on a magical journey to save the bees or something.

"My mom’s cat eats out of a high chair."

I'm not sure whether this cat loves sitting in a high chair, or is planning its owner's demise as we speak. It could really go either way with cats.

How do you even train one to eat in a high chair?

"I took this pic and hours later saw that bee… what are the odds?"

I guess this photographer wasn't the only one out there who was interested in this flower. Even if it wasn't intentional, the timing worked out perfectly. I think they should just take the win.

"A fly trapped itself in my screen door."

I get that bugs (and other animals) can't really tell the difference between glass and... not glass. But there's a whole screen here, and you're telling me this fly still couldn't tell it was an obstacle? Natural selection is working on this bug.

"A machine at my work was tested OK against the Y2K bug."

As we know (21 years later), Y2K ended up not being a thing at all. In fact, I still can't really understand how people believed that the world was going to end because computers were going to fail on New Years 2000. So weird.

"There’s an abandoned hog shack in my backyard."

I'm guessing that this hog shack wasn't part of the house listing. Like, it's probably not a big deal, but it's still so weird. And kind of creepy.

Hopefully, they won't hear random pig sounds in the middle of the night...

"Not 100% Whole Wheat Bread."

I don't know if I'd want to eat that slice of bread. The bleached part looks kind of like a stale patch, or mold even, and I wouldn't be able to get that out of my head.

In fact, I'd probably just buy new bread.

"10-year-old+ batteries left in a game didn't leak."

This is nothing short of a miracle. Considering how quickly batteries usually decide to leak and ruin your electronics, I can't help but be impressed here.

I'd still at least remove them at this point, though.

"I got tipped a prop $20 note at work."

Depending on where you work, this could be pretty cool (some places like retail won't let their workers take cash tips). But if you tip a server with fake money, you're probably just a bad person.

"Whoever owned my car before me had a Transformers decal, and I never noticed until my windows got foggy."

I don't know why, but it feels like the previous owner was trying to hide the fact that there was a decal on there and failed. There's no escaping the fact that you own a Transformers car decal.

"This happened 5 km away from home."

I don't think there's any way to actually explain how a car can just jump more than ten feet in the air and land on a structure. Like, sure, it could've been a tornado's doing. But is it really?

"This Canadian goose and his odd neck coloring. I’ve lived 40 years in an area where these birds frequent. I’ve never seen one like this before."

All I know is that this goose is about 8 feet away from becoming a vicious, ruthless, biting machine that'll stop at nothing to make your life miserable. Even if it has a cool pattern.

"There is a dried-up chili pepper drilled onto the side of one of the paint cupboards at my school."

To be fair, it's a really nice-looking dried chili pepper. I'm guessing that's why it was hung up on a cupboard. Either that, or it's warding something away. Something possibly evil.
