My vote is for intrauterine cannabalism. That happens in some species of sharks where one baby shark eats all of its brothers and sisters while still in the womb. (My apologies for the mental image.)
So, what's the weirdest thing you've heard of? Please contribute in order to knock Keineker's/63/47's crap down.

Haha,you mean except the 47's crap? :-]
If I say that I read in wikipedia that I/O project is being recorded since 1995, does it count? :-]

A guy up in Scotland who whilst stopped in traffic, in Neutral, with his hand brake on, blew his nose.
Then when the traffic moved off, away he went.
He was stopped by the Police a short distance down the road, told he had been given a fine and I think points. He was aparrently " Not in controll of his vehicle".
I would call bieng in Neutral with your hand brake on controll.
And yes he thought it was a wind up, but to his horror no it was'nt.
People will be glad to know he is fighting it all the way.
How ridiculous can you get?
Lets hope common sense will prevail, just imagine the mess if you are driving with a cold, and you arent even allowed to blow your nose!! eeeww!

Not THE WEIRDEST thing, but something I don't get.
People on the internet are always saying: "I could care less" instead of "I COULDN'T care less". Why? Just why?

Maybe their English are not perfect :-]

It's also easier to type.

Well, it means the complete opposite. That's just dumb. And well, most of the people who do this seem to be in fact native speakers. They often seem to confuse "their, there and they're" too. I don't get this. Is it so difficult? *shrug*

This is a strange thing that i have seen,not heard,hope go well. . .
It is a strange friendship between my cat and a hedgehog.
This winter before the hedgehog goes into hibernation he came early morning to eat the food that i left for my cat.
One day my cat has seen the hedgehog and then she wake up every morning at the same hour to watch the hedgehog that eats her food.
Just watching and doing absolutely nothing as if to say: "ok,you eat my food,i am not angry with you"
When the hedgehog is not more come,my cat not more wake up but she remained quiet sleep.

I wonder if your cat has met the hedgehog before and know what to expect!
My hubby feeds left over peas to the fish in the pond. He peels the peas first! I'd say he's strange, but then you know it takes one to know one!

What a cute story Dolce! Cats are such intelligent animals. Whenever I feel like shit and am about to start crying, my cat comes scratching at my door to comfort me. I think cats have a sixth sense to know when their humans feel bad. I just love cats.

I think cats are very curious animals and they always want to explore things they don't know,observe other animals ect.I 've seen many times my cat sitting in front of my parrot's cage,doing nothing,just relaxing,and never attacks her.But your story is not something I've ever heard before,it's cute indeed.

Thanks to all,i am glad you like it.
Yes,Duddy this wonder me too,nice your story and of Evoulini too!! I agree: the cats are mysterious and with sixth sense that many times leave us speechless.
The Soil it is the same for me too: when i am sad or maybe i feel very idiot,Lamia ( her name. . . :-]) observe me with a strange expression as to say: "What are you doing? Are you crazy?" and often she understand my state of mind,fantastic. . .

Not strictly something I've heard of, but something that happens to people (me included) De ja vous, pardon my spelling.
How come we get a strong feeling that we have seen a situation or thing before, and know precisely what happens next, before it happens.
I find myself saying out loud " Ive seen this before " and stop what I am doing trying to take it in.
Or is it just a case of Groud Hog Day, or maybe too many repeats on TV?

I asked my 8 year old niece if she had any dream lastnight. She said she couldn't remember any. So I asked her what would she have wanted to dream about. She repleid, "Unicorns that poop butterflies."
I am so proud! :-]

When one of my sisters was little she woke up and said 'I feel like a tortoise'. We still ponder over these words many years later!
