20 Randomly Weird Things People Discovered While Minding Their Own Business

The world can be a weird place. Just when you think things have become too predictable or consistent, something weird will pop up to remind you that the universe is chaotic. Let's delve into the world of the random and the weird.

"Sky was purple after school today."

Reddit | Hugglesnuggybear

You know what they say: "Red sky at night, sailor's, purple sky...after school..."

Scratch that. I have no idea how the rest of the rhyme goes, or how this sky got so purple in the first place.

"This Reese’s cup I got with no ridges or paper cup."

Reddit | -CharmingScales-

I don't even understand how this is possible. Do Reese's cups look like this at some point in the factory process? Is this an imposter cup? I'll bet this would sell for a few bucks on eBay.

"7 years worth of bugs. Should be full by 2030. Will update."

Outdoor light fixtures are bound to collect a few bug corpses now and then. This is either a very popular fixture with the bugs, or someone has let it go an excessively long time without cleaning it.

"This journal that looks a VHS tape cover."

Reddit | thelifeoflane

Nostalgia for the '90s is having a bit of a moment in our collective consciousness right now, and this is a pure distillation of that. Seeing one of those old Disney VHS cases, even in notebook form, takes me right back.

"This jacket has a little hole that you can see your watch through."

This is a cool idea, and looks like it would work far better than my method of kind of jamming my cuff up passed my watch so I can kinda-sorta still see my watch.

"This church has a 'cry room' where parents can take their crying baby to avoid disturbing everyone else but still watch the sermon."

Reddit | Mimilegend

This is a great idea. It would be even better if workplaces had something similar, because those are the places that make people want to cry.

"This long-dead wasp in my uni building that has started to unravel."

Reddit | sci-why

It's the circle of life: we're born, we live, we die, then we...uh, then we just kind of unravel in a spiral pattern, I suppose. You learn something new every day.

"Really REALLY big tires I saw on my drive to work."

Reddit | chromebaloney

What are these gigantic tires for? I have no idea, but I do know that the 'oversize load' signs aren't kidding. I'd be tempted to follow the convoy to see where these tires are going.

"Apparently you can’t mix Coke Zero and Fanta."

Reddit | FailingKomet

I don't know if this is due to the artificial sweeteners in the Coke Zero or just because these two soft drinks don't like each other. It almost looks like a fancy cocktail.

"Frost pattern on a car this morning."

Reddit | CalTech0003

I've seen this before, but only online, and that bugs me. Why doesn't my car ever get a cool frosty pattern, huh? I live in a frosty climate. It just doesn't seem fair.

"This school's bathroom pass is a toilet seat."

Reddit | OkShop9301

I guess this school either doesn't want people stealing its bathroom pass, or it wants to make it really obvious when someone's on their way to the bathroom. I can't say I'm a fan.

"I found a diamond in my shoe while working out…"

Reddit | Fassbenderr

If you're finding literal diamonds on the soles of your shoes while at the gym, you're clearly blessed. This would be a good incentive to buy a lottery ticket to see if the good luck holds up.

"5L tub of mayonnaise I found."

Reddit | indeed123k

A lot of people really, really hate mayo. While I don't really want it on my sandwich, I try not to be a hater. Still, seeing this gigantic tub of it kind of sickens me.

"This restaurant figured out that face masks fit in the napkin dispenser."

We've all been masked up for some time now, but no one has made the perfect mask dispenser yet. Turns out the perfect dispenser was right in front of our eyes the whole time.

"Toilet paper loading instructions for my RV."

Reddit | spyan_

The age-old overhand/underhand debate has raged for generations. Finally, we have a definitive answer on the correct way to do things, and it's all thanks to the manual for this random RV.

"Random stranger & I have wedding rings cut from the deck of the same WWII battleship."

Reddit | nephelodusa

I didn't know that rings made from the deck of World War II battleships were a thing in the first place, let alone the kind of thing that multiple people would have.

"Car unintentionally drew hearts while driving off on a snowy day."

Reddit | dmorissette

Some of us choose to see the random sights we take in as signs. If you're one of those people, seeing a couple of hearts on a cold, snowy day would be a great pick-me-up.

"Housekeeping staff found an owl in the room of a guest that checked-out yesterday."

Reddit | http9

Owls are beautiful birds, but this would be kind of unnerving to discover. Is it going to freak out and attack you or just keep chilling there? They are birds of prey, after all.

"Groundbreaking new technology inside my oat milk carton."

Reddit | padeinz

Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but I remember a time when my oat milk carton just had information on the oat milk contained inside. I don't need to be trolled by an inanimate object.

"This pile of phones someone tried to pour down a storm drain."

Why would someone want to flush a bunch of old phones down the drain? The correct thing to do is toss them all in a random junk drawer and forget about them.
