You Re Weird But I Like You


This is a weird sentence. You're weird - I like you. Last night I had a weird dream. Tom had a weird dream last night. His behaviour is sometimes weird. Their problems are sometimes so weird. I always found weird to participate in a community under a pseudonym and sign messages with another name. My computer makes a really weird noise. The misery of others leaves a weird taste. He's a weird guy. Warning: Chilean Spanish may sound weird in any other place.

Attention: Chilean Spanish may sound weird elsewhere. Mary is weird. I don't have much interest in sports games like soccer or baseball, but I do like seeing weird or outstanding plays in them. She had something weird on her head. It's weird isn't it? We expected Takahashi to get drunk and say some weird stuff, but he ended up not drinking too much, so it wasn't interesting. Although I don't remember how, I've been getting some bruises on my legs lately.

What should I do if it's some kind of weird disease? That's so weird. The highly unusual circumstance came about because the woman has two uteruses and both were able to successfully carry the three healthy children to term. However, the mother's doctor did admit, "We were very shocked and surprised.

I have never observed something like this before. Shutterstock You'd think if a spacial body met a phenomenally fiery fate right above our heads, we'd notice. But when a meteor hit our atmosphere on Dec. Turns out, it went largely undetected because it took place over the Bering Sea in an area that was close, but not directly on, the path of commercial planes flying between North America and Asia.

Shutterstock It's hard to imagine dolphins being any more wonderful than they already are, but a Louisiana bottlenose dolphin named "Pinky" is almost too adorable to believe. First spotted in , the unusual creature got its name from its surprising pink color, which is likely the result of a rare genetic condition.

Pinky was seen again in and in while mating. Despite the fact that fishermen have apparently seen her swimming with baby dolphins, they're not sure if she's their mother—especially since no news of any pink baby dolphins has surfaced. Shutterstock If a storm is passing and the sun starts shining, you might be lucky enough to spot a rainbow. But did you know that you can see something just as amazing at night? While they're incredibly unusual, moonbows or lunar rainbows are caused by the reflection, refraction, and dispersion of light, and tend to happen most often in places with waterfalls and mist.

There also needs to be a near full moon for there to be enough light for you to see it. Shutterstock If you thought it was impressive that humans can make it to the top of Mount Everest, you'll be stunned to find out that bumblebees can make it to the summit , too. Researchers who tracked two bees that were able to fly at more than 29, feet or 9, meters, which is higher than Everest admitted that they were "shocked at how high they could fly.

Before James Cameron became famous for directing blockbusters like Titanic and Avatar, he was just an unknown filmmaker with an ambitious idea.

In order to get his movie made, he handed over the rights to the script for a token amount on the terms that he would be allowed to direct the movie. Despite the eventual success of the project, Cameron later admitted that he regrets the decision to sell such a valuable story for such a low amount, saying, "I wish I hadn't sold the rights for one dollar.

If I had a little time machine and I could only send back something the length of a tweet, it'd be—'Don't sell. Shutterstock The comb jelly—also known as the warty comb jelly, sea walnut, or Mnemiopsis leidyi—has a disappearing butt. Sidney Tamm of the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, told New Scientist that "there is no documentation of a transient anus in any other animals that I know of.

It is not visible when the animal is not pooping. There's no trace under the microscope. It's invisible to me. Shutterstock Some odd things have been sold on eBay, from a grilled cheese sandwich with the face of the Virgin Mary to Justin Timberlake's half-eaten French toast.

But one of the strangest listings ever had to be for the country of New Zealand. The listing described the country as "the dodgiest American Cup win ever" and said it has "very ordinary weather.

Eventually, eBay caught wind of the auction and pulled it from its site. It's the final resting place of Hannah Courtoy, who had a well-known respect for ancient Egyptians' astrological and perhaps mystical knowledge. She's buried there, along with two of her daughters, in a massive foot granite mausoleum that includes a pyramid peak and a bronze door decorated with Egyptian hieroglyphs. The entryway also features a keyhole, but the key that unlocks it was lost, which—along with Courtoy's history—sparked the tomb's peculiar reputation.

Because no one can get inside to confirm or deny superstitious suspicion, there's a local legend that says it isn't a tomb at all, but a time machine.

It's a teleportation chamber. That's because it's a year-old Japanese tradition that if a sumo wrestler can make your baby cry , it means he or she will live a healthy life.

During a special ceremony, parents hand over their infants to sumo wrestlers who bounce their precious tots up and down and sometimes even roar in their little faces to get the tears flowing. Shutterstock They say if it ain't broke, don't fix it—and that turned out to be the case for a very early design of the mousetrap. In the mids, inventor Colin Pullinger unveiled his Perpetual Mousetrap and claimed that it would last a lifetime.

More than a century later, Pullinger could still make that claim. The year-old device, on display at England's Museum of English Rural Life, managed to catch a mouse that snuck into it in —even without bait! The mouse entered the trap attempting to build a nest and ended up activating its see-saw mechanism. Sadly, the rodent didn't survive. But clearly, the perpetual mousetrap does!

Shutterstock The blue whale is the largest living creature—it's even larger than most dinosaurs. The biggest blue whales can be over feet in length and weigh more than tons. Their hearts alone can weigh 1, pounds, and are the size of a small car. Unsurprisingly, blue whales have enormous arteries, which pump blood through their massive hearts and into their vital organs. These arteries are so big that a fully grown human could swim through them , not that you should try it.

Shutterstock They don't call it a "good cry" for nothing. Studies suggest that crying stimulates the production of endorphins , our body's natural painkiller, and feel-good hormones, like oxytocin. In short, crying more will ultimately lead to smiling more. Some astronauts have claimed that learning this new language was the biggest challenge of their training.

According to the U. State Department Foreign Service Institute, English-speaking astronauts can expect to spend 1, class hours to reach a reasonable level of fluency in Russian. That's twice as many hours as it typically takes to learn other languages like French, Spanish, and Dutch. Shutterstock In , dentist Alfred P. Southwick witnessed a drunk man die quickly after touching a live electric generator.

Southwick soon realized that electricity could be a quick and more humane alternative to hanging for executions. And thusly, the electric chair was born, and was first used in Though it wasn't an initial success—a second jolt needed to be used—Southwick eventually worked out the kinks.

Cotton candy and electric chairs: What will dentists think of next? Shutterstock Comic Sans is the classic cute, lighthearted, informal, good-for-a-child's-birthday-party-invitation font. But it also comes across as immature and unprofessional, and has been called the world's most hated font. Comic Sans was designed by Vincent Connare in , and even he isn't a fan. I was having trouble changing my broadband to Sky so wrote them a letter in Comic Sans, saying how disappointed I was," he told The Guardian.

Shutterstock Fresh aristocrat Baron de Coubertin designed the Olympic flag in the early s, and he was very intentional with his creation. At least one of the colors on the Olympic flag appears on the flags of every nation that competed in the games at the time but only if you count the white background of the flag itself. It's known for its vibrant pink color , which is due to the presence of the algae Dunaliella salina. It causes the lake's salt content to create a red dye, which helps produce its bubble gum color.

And despite the high salt levels, Lake Hillier is safe to swim in. Hillier also has a purple-ish lake sibling. Depending on the season and the amount of cloud coverage, Hutt Lagoon can be different colors , ranging from red to pink to lilac.

Shutterstock In , New York tea merchant Thomas Sullivan sent samples of tea leaves to some of his customers in small silken bags. Many of the recipients assumed that the bags were supposed to be used in the same way as the metal infusers. So, they put the entire bag into the teapot, rather than emptying out its contents.

After such positive feedback from the happy accident, Sullivan designed intentional teabags for commercial production. In the s, his sachets made of gauze—and later, paper—included the string with the tag hanging over the side so the bag could be easily removed. Some things really do stay the same. Shutterstock An actual research study commissioned by Guinness found that an estimated , pints of Irish stout go to waste every year… via mustaches.

The study found that 0. And it takes about 10 sips to finish a pint. An estimated 92, Guinness consumers every year in the UK have facial hair. The moral of this story? Shave and save! Shutterstock Over 2, years ago, Julius Caesar promoted the use of the Julian calendar, a day calendar that didn't account for leap years. Eventually, the calendar fell out of sync with the seasonal equinoxes, and holidays—like Easter—didn't land where they should. But for many countries, including Russia, the switch from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian took centuries.

As a result, in , the Russians missed the first 12 days of the Olympics , which was hosted in London, because they were still using the Julian calendar. The country finally changed over in after the Bolsheviks took control. Fun bonus fact: Greece, the country where the Olympics were born, was the last nation to make the switch in Grooves were added in the road that play music when you drive over them going the speed limit of 45 mph.

The grooves work just like the rumble strips, which vibrate your car if you drift out of your lane. These particular strips are positioned to create different pitches when you drive over them, and if you do, you can clearly hear "America the Beautiful" play through the vibrations in your car's wheels. Many credit him as the mastermind behind Presley's massive commercial success. Because he got a 25 percent profit share, Parker was always finding new ways to get fans to spend.

He even decided to market to Presley's haters. In fact, bans on plastic bags are regularly being enacted. However, both paper and plastic have their drawbacks. According to research, paper bag production emits 70 percent more pollution, uses four times as much energy, and takes more time to break down, when compared to plastic bags.

Guess the best option is to carry reusable bags with you. Shutterstock You might assume that a man who can run as fast as Usain Bolt would be the embodiment of physical perfection. But it turns out, Bolt has had his share of physical difficulties to overcome, including scoliosis.

So I don't have to worry about it as long as I work hard. In fact, in , protesters claimed a proposed highway would destroy an "elf church," which to many was just a gigantic rock. Eventually, the "church" was moved to a safe place so that it would not be harmed and the construction continued. Though the rock weighed 70 tons and required a crane to move it, the preservation of places important to elves is significant to Icelanders.

The country's elf history dates back to Viking-era poems from around the year To Icelanders, these elves are not tiny figures who build toys for Santa; they actually look very much like humans and can range in size.

Many believe that grave misfortune will befall those who dare to build in elf territory, even though it cannot be seen—hence the "church" preservation. Shutterstock Bubble wrap was invented in by engineers Alfred W. Fielding and Marc Chavannes, who sealed two shower curtains together, creating a smattering of air bubbles, which they initially tried to sell as wallpaper.
