Hey, it was scary to me. I didn't even know what it meant back then.

My buddy and I still shudder remembering that. And yes, as an adult I'm sure there's probably a reasonable explanation for what happened... but I've scoured the net for years and have yet to see one that would explain it away. I remember it was warm, too... it wasn't like it was just some half-frozen Coke oozing out.
This happened on a film set, right...? o.O

Now the question is, have you consumed that brand at all over the years of avoided it ever since? lol

Although Japan apparently makes an eel flavored soda, so there's that.

I use to have a crazy friend. I just thought about him today as I was looking at ice sickles formed on the side of my house. He posed a question to me once. Asked what would happen if a murder was committed with an ice sickle. The evidence would melt. Yeah I’m not friends with him anymore. I’m not trying to hangout with someone trying to figure out how to get away with a crime.

Hey, it's a legit question, though! My guess is he just watches a lot of CSI or something. That is the sort of thing that might come up on a show like that. I mean, they had that guy who accidentally killed two people and then got stuck in wet cement after trying to hide the bodies, so..... (As a side note, Mr D and I have had that exact same conversation a couple of times. But I'm a writer, and he thinks like one. *shrugs*)

He was a very creative person. Funny enough, last I heard, heís in jail. Not for murder though.

Yeah I could see it as a CSI episode. Could be someone was walking outside an the ice sickle fell and killed them. The detectives thought murder at first but turns out to be an accident. Idk but someone has to say ďthatís ice cold.Ē

I couldn't even tell you the brand. If I had to venture a guess, it might have been Pepsi.

I just stumbled across this.

http://www.abcnews.go.com/amp/Health...y%3fid=8495156

Makes sense to me if it was a frog in there, since they can fit in a can much easier than a snake or an eel. My guess is either someone got really lucky and forgot their can in the woods or it was just a sick prank. If it really was a Frog, probably got disfigured from being in there for so long that it ended up looking like a Jet Black Eel thing.

Not sure if this counts, but as it JUST happened, I thought I'd share it. So, about a week ago, someone stole an ashtray off our patio. Not just a little one, either. This thing is a metal stand about two and a half feet tall, with a big metal bowl with a wide lip to set cigarettes on at the top, and the bowl has a high-arched handle. It's iron, I think, as it's fairly heavy. It has a smaller removable bowl that sits inside itto hold the ashes. Now, this is an antique- it sat in my grandparents' house for as long as I can remember before my granddad passed, and grandma gave it to us. (Hubby was a smoker at the time, and has since quit, but we use it outside when company comes over who are smokers. I don't allow smoking in the apartment.) It is at LEAST fifty years old, and kind of rusty. Doesn't look like anything anyone would want to steal. But I was upset, as it's an antique and was my granddad's. But apparently whoever took it brought it back last night. It was gone for nearly a week, and then mysteriously reappeared on the patio when Mr. D went outside this morning. It was not there when he came home from treatment yesterday evening. Its just weird- why would someone take something so big, and then return it a week later?

not really directly to me.. but definitely one of the weirder things I've ever seen tend to happen on the road.

Driving back from the beach. On rush hour, on a major parkway. This is this african american lady just slowly walking in the middle of the fast lane crying her eyes out like a banshee. a police car was just calmly following behind her, holding back traffic, letting her walk. I still never found out what happened.

I've also seen a truck driving along the highway with a decent sized small tree branch stuck out it's back door and dragging along the highway.

Perhaps the oddest radio traffic report I ever heard. the traffic guy spotted a truck ON FIRE, just moving on down the road like normal. and they never followed up on it.

That's strange. My guess is someone else (a parent?) made the thief return it? Glad you got it back though!

This ones always stuck with me. It was one of my fondest memories... though unfortunately it doesn't have a nice ending.

Back when I was about fourteen, Chris Benoit was doing an autograph signing at a Partsource Canada in Hamilton, Ontario where I lived. I was never into autographs but my friends and I were all huge wrestling fans and they didn't need to do much arm-twisting to convince me to go.

As we waited in line, my friends were trying to think of what they'd say or ask him to write. My friends all went up before me giving me a couple seconds to think of what to say when I went up to him. Then I remembered a headline from a wrestling website I read two weeks prior: Chris Benoit and his wife Nancy just had a son, Daniel.

My memory of it is surprisingly clear. I remember walking up and some guy standing in front of the booth said "Got something to sign?" I shook my head no, and he handed me a really crappy black and white print-out which was mostly the Partsource Canada logo with a very small picture of Chris Benoit at the bottom.

Once I was handed that, I approached Chris, who greeted me with a tight lipped smile and a "Hi." He'd been signing for about an hour at that point.
"Hey," I said. Chris began signing the print-out. "How's your son?"
I'll never forget this - He looked up at me and his face lit up.
"He's great!" He was full on grinning now. He kinda just took a moment to look at me in appreciation for thinking to ask.
"You seriously just made my day. Thanks so much for asking! He's terrific. Just great."
He asked for my name and signed it before shaking my hand.
"Marc, thank you. Seriously. Means alot to me."

And that was that.

It's a minor moment of course, but you know that feeling you get when you really did make someones day for the simplest thing? For as abysmal as it was, that was one of my favourite memories.

And then... seven years later...

So yeah, not exactly a "crazy thing that happened in my life" but something that has always stuck with me. Figured I'd share it here.

Aww that is really sad

Its also really surreal, meeting someone (especially someone who's famous), feeling like you've made a difference in their life, only to find out the tragic part all those years later. Hope you were able to cope with the situation at hand.

Oh yeah. By the time that happened I was in my early 20s and had moved on from wrestling, so the news was sad to be sure but didn't phase me anymore than that.

Still, unfortunate that one of my fonder memories was later so severely tainted, but considering the actual tragedy -- small potatoes.

For anyone who is familiar with the Pokemon games, you will most likely know that there is a popular trend for many players to hunt for "Shiny" Pokemon, which are basically just Pokemon with an alternate colour pallete. In the older games I play, the chance of encountering one are exactly 1/8192.

Crazy thing that happened to me was that I was hunting for a Shiny Slowpoke randomly out of boredom after having nothing else to do in the game, and after less than 40 encounters, BAM! I was basically in disbelief that I managed to get a shiny so early on and defy the crazy low odds (0.0001% to be exact), when most players I see on Youtube go to crazy lengths to hunts for these things (one for example, went through more than 18,000, so imagine how painstaking that must be). After catching the Slowpoke, I nicknamed her "Special" because she is my first Shiny Pokemon playing through the games as an adult.

As a kid, I did encounter 2 shinies. One was an Articuno, which I captured, before realizing that its colour was slightly different than usual. I didn't know what Shinies were at the time, so I thought my game was broken or something. Showed my older cousin, who then began to instantly freak as if he had just seen a ghost or something lol. Second time was a few years later when I was navigating through Diglett's cave and was running away from wild Diglett without looking at them. When I ran away from one of them, I for no reason looked at my screen, and there it was. I had just ran away from a shiny Diglett and was super dissapointed. What sucked even more was that 90% of Diglett have the ability Arena Trap which prevents you from running away, so it was a truly horrible missed opportunity.

I had my own fun little Pokemon event.

Namely, when I first started playing Sun and Moon. I wanted a female Popplio so I could give it a very specific name (Saoirse), and was ready to soft restart wherever possible.

But, to my luck, it was a female on my very first try. It was very exciting.

Speaking of other crazy Pokemon things, I just saw this video today, and I think its the greatest reaction to anything ever in the history of things reacted to.



Gotta love his passion.
