(Fark)   Subby just looked out the window and saw a horse-drawn wagon carrying a dozen people from the assisted living facility down the street. What's the strangest thing you've seen today? LGN   ( divider line

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.

The strangest thing? Same as every day. It's in the mirror.

Xploder: I apologize, I should explain that remark...

I'm a 52 year old disabled vet, my wife is also disabled and was born that way. We have custody of our 7 year old grandson who, although completely able to make himself understood through sign language and whatnot, can not talk intelligibly.

The fact that subby finds something amusing about the fact that the people that live in the assisted living facility are actually out in public and trying their best to live their lives as normal human beings pisses me right off.

So, fark you subby.

Um, OK.  To me the "strange thing" in the headline had more to do with the horse-drawn wagon than the folks in it.  In fact, I thought subby meant senior citizens - all my experiences lately of "assisted living" have involved cute little old folks, and the idea of a geriatric hay ride made me smile.  I do not think that the point of the headline was to make fun of people with disabilities.

Alas, I'm frightfully short on stories right now.  There was some sort of shootout near my house last night, and there is a paper bag full of pelican and dolphin skulls on my desk.

Cheesehead_Dave: Not really strange, but kind of cool: The bubbler on my floor at work has been torn apart all week. It was finally back together today, but retrofit with a motion-activated spout for filling water bottles and a counter to show how many plastic bottles had been saved.

Good thing Fark greenlit the language maps article the other day. or I would have no idea WTF a bubbler was. Rock on with your crazy dialect, Wisconsin.

A white crow. Really! An albino crow that hangs with the other crows and crows back and forth and isn't a gull, dove or egret. Showed up 4 days ago, first time I heard it crow!

buckler: Shortly after waking up this morning and was getting dressed, I began to see LSD-like trails surrounding moving objects. That vanished after about 15 minutes. I've never seen anything quite like that before (except, you know, when I used to partake in acid).

And don't give me that "acid flashback" nonsense.

Migraine. No they don't always have to include the painful headache. And you're lucky if it didn't.

Either that or you have a tumor and you're going to die. But really, it was probably a migraine.

Well, I DID see a sign that reminded me what an insensitive moron subby was.

Aside from that? Not much.

I didn't see anything too strange today, but I did something strange earlier this week. I shoved a live scorpion down my pants, hopped on a balance board and juggled machetes for folks amusement.

Knife Juggling Fun! (safe for work)

letthepossumlive: I went to the beach today where I saw over a hundred people  (they kept coming) with a lot of them dressed in all white with some in white robes. They had  3 props with the last one saying "believe". Not sure what the first two words were.  It didn't look like a wedding but for some reason I was thinking it was religious in nature.   There was not much room for parking so they had to  either take some buses or walked quite a ways.

Baptism, most likely.

The fact that you know what Reddit is like to make that comparison say more about you than us.

6 shoes, not pairs mind you, single shoes each stuffed with a pair of female knickers and next to them a gallon pickle jar with a child's doll floating in what appears to be urine (didn't investigate beyond looking)

Might have been an art project but, I would rather like to believe it was the best bachelorette party ever!

I saw a peanut stand,
heard a rubber band,
I saw a needle that winked it's eye.
but I think I will have seen everything
when I see an elephant fly.

I saw a front porch swing,
heard a diamond ring,
I saw a polka-dot railroad tie.
but I think I will have seen everything
when i see an elephant fly.

I seen a clothes horse, he r'ar up and buck
and they tell me a man made a vegetable truck
I didn't see that, I only heard
but just to be sociable, I'll take your word.

I heard a fireside chat,
I saw a baseball bat
and I just laughed till I thought I'd die.
but I'd been done seen about everything
when I see an elephant fly.

BigLuca: A few years ago I went into the liquor store to by a bottle of absinthe.  As I was looking over my choices I heard a voice ask if I needed any help choosing, I look over and there is a midget with a green mohawk and a face tattoo.   He was very knowledgeable about the different brands and he did help, but I was a regular in that store and had never seen him before or since.  Now I wonder if I just imagined the whole thing.

With the power of fark, we can figure this out.  Was this when you were going to the liquor store to buy your second bottle of absinthe of the day?

This was last night, but close enough.  After a long week on the road (I'm a truck driver), I was finally coming home when I saw a guy get out of his car, shoot a cop, then another cop jump out of a squad car fill the first guy full of holes, then more police cars than I've ever seen in my life showed up.  The cop's going to be okay, the other guy is very dead and full of holes, and I had to find another route home.  Clayton county, GA.  So glad I only have to drive thru it and not actually live there.

I love geocaching, but that doesn't mean it doesn't look strange!
