    no, some guy on their roofing crew, it's just no one knows why.

    Information O'Connelly, poor bastard.

    no but seriously though a man is dead HAVE SOME RESPECT SHEESH i'm just messin with you this happened like 30 years ago by now probably and i never met either one.

    edit: now that i think on it, the perpetrators of all three crimes may well be gone themselves. i know my great uncle bill is, and i'm pretty sure the state saw to my dad's cousin Ricky. his other cousin, the guy with the proclivity for roof repair, i'm not sure about him. he might still be in prison or maybe even let out, apparently he was a model prisoner. didn't cooperate much with questioning and all that so i doubt they took it easy on him, not that they should have or anything. Ricky definitely deserved to be in prison forever, and whether that's a short or long forever I guess doesn't really matter. Uncle Bill was just doing work that no one else was doin.

    If I were to get Q powers I'd probably just use them to Large Marge people across the galaxy

    also, man, my sister did a pretty good spook on me today

    I came downstairs and she left me a little box on my desk with a note thanking me for driving her around while she doesn't have her license (a long, dumb story)

    I picked up the box and it started popping and shaking and I dropped it and it's making weird noises and occasionally inching around

    That jerk filled a box with Mexican Jumping Beans and they scared the hell out of me. She must have spent a decent amount of money too, because there's a lot of them and I'm pretty sure you'd have to get them on like, Amazon 2-day or something, it's not like there's a prank store nearby.

    edit: this is the best kind of prank because now I have a bunch of little hoppy motherfuckers that I can use to try and prank somebody else

    yeah some kinda moth, I think?

    Yeah, a pretty mundane-looking moth. They don't like heat, and eventually dehydrate if there's no heavy rain/moisture every now and then.

    The moths kind of have a sad life. They only live for a few days.

    The moths spend most of their lives as larva. Weird.

  • Metzger MeisterMetzger Meister Registered User regular
    Many winged insects are similar. The damselfly famously spends the majority of its life as a predatory water nymph before emerging as an adult, usually only to die within about a week. Sometimes, certain species of dragonfly and damselfly live for years as a nymph, only to live a few days, mate, then die.

    I'm David Attenborough, reminding you of the fleeting and fragile nature of existence and the ultimate meaningless and random nature of life.

    So I just remembered one of many spooky things in my life.

    Back in 1996, I was stage crew for a production of Bye-Bye, Birdie (which is why I hate musicals; only joined up because my girlfriend, and some other friends were in the show). At the end of its run, there was a big party for the cast and crew, which was the same night that Daylight Savings ended. I remember because we all were using it as an excuse to stay out very late (most of us were seniors, but we still had to be home at a normal hour). Well, we did, and on the drive home, we had an overpacked car. Two up front, four in the back (my gf was sitting on my lap). We get onto the highway, and there’s a toll booth ahead, probably 300 yards away. We are the only car on a long, straight, fully lit road that has no exit from something like a half mile behind us until after the toll.

    Next thing I know, my face is in the headrest of the seat in front of me, I hear a loud “whooshing” sound, my gf is hanging half out the passenger window, there’s a crazy burning smell, and everyone is screaming. We got rear-ended. Driver pulls over immediately (I’m still impressed with how cool he was in the situation, because he normally would lose his mind over something like that), and we take a quick moment to make sure everyone is OK. The rear of the car was smashed inward directly towards the middle of the seat, which buckled inwards and caused a minor neck injury for my friend who was sitting there. My gf was freaking out because the passenger window had shattered and she almost fell out of the car. The fourth person in back was fine, just shaken up, and the two up front had no issues other than being shocked. This was within the span of 15 seconds from impact to being pulled over and knowing we were all fine. We get out, look around—nothing. No other car. We expected a bad wreck, or ... well, anything, but absolutely no one in sight. No headlights from another vehicle, no taillights, either. It was a one-way road, no other lanes they could have jumped over to. Again, no exit until after the tollbooth, so a couple people ran down to ask if anyone just came through. The attendant said no one had been by in at least 15 minutes. This was an elevated highway ramp with nowhere to go but over the edge or through the toll. And yes, we looked over the edge, and there were no cars that had fallen down.

    Now, I’m sure there is a perfectly normal explanation. But I can’t think of one. I’m fairly certain we got clipped by a UFO or some interdimensional traveler.

    Anyways, never overpack your car with people and always wear your seatbelt. We were insanely lucky to get away with just a few bruises and a minor neck injury.

    Sort of makes me think about a story my father told me a long time ago about when he was in his early 20s and had just barely started seeing my mom.

    This takes place in Massachusetts around 1980 give or take. He was driving late at night, coming home from his friends' and he definitely should have opted to crash there instead of driving. Nevertheless, he chose to drive home. It was very dark and the roads were pretty-much empty. What happened next happened without warning. Something heavy struck the front of my father's car (it being one of those flat-fronted old Chevrolets or similar), then over the hood, up the windshield and disappeared. I don't know what kind of damage it left but the car still ran and my father was scared out of his mind because he knew it wasn't an animal. It ended up being a person on a motorcycle with their headlights off traveling against traffic on the highway for unknown reasons.

    The best my dad could figure, they had to have been high or something to be doing that. The cops let him go without too many questions and he made a beeline to stay on my mom's couch that night instead of driving any longer.

    I never got confirmation because he is still shaken when he recalls the story, but it did not sound like the rider that hit him head-on made it. It sounds terrifying and I will never not think of that when I'm driving on the highways at night or see anyone driving with their headlights off.

    I was going to say maybe it was a boar, but only because we had a boar run right into the side of our HS school bus. Damn thing fell over, laid there maybe 20 seconds, then hopped up and ran off into the forest.

    We're all just kinda giant mobile mech suits for bacterial colonies when you think about it. We're like .00000001% of the population of our own bodies. Just a big gooey generational colony ship, a biological vessel carrying a crew through a vast and hostile universe that they cannot perceive or imagine.

    Or so I told my husband specifically to creep him out. It worked.

    Here is an article about ghosts not existing.
    https://www.wired.co.uk/article/the-lhc-proves-ghosts-do-not-exist

    The important thing about physics is that there are two schools that they have never figured out how to work together, classical and modern physics. So, there is still a good deal of unknown out there.

    I don't think it's likely that ghosts exist, but I will be extremely tickled if it turns out that the missing element in the grand unified theory is ghosts.

    Spooky action at a distance, indeed.

    I like ghost stories that have ghosts existing on another plane of existence that overlaps our own. That gets around the physics problem.
