Indian Rope Trick

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_rope_trick

There was this girl okay, and she was like kind of a loser, like didn’t have many friends and she was really quiet. She was over on an erasmus in Germany. She didn’t make any new friends or anything ’cause she was a bit weird so she was pretty lonely. So one day this little puppy turned up at the door to her dorm. She took him in and soon they became inseparable like the puppy became her best friend and they even like slept together. So then when it came time for her to come home to Ireland she wasn’t too sad ’cause like she hadn’t made any new friends especially since the puppy turned up. Obviously she didn’t wanna leave him behind so she came back on the ferry instead, and didn’t bother getting him quarantined. 

One day shortly after she was back she had to run into town to get something so she left the puppy in her house with her family pet cat. When she got home the cat was literally splattered around the house in bits. Blood everywhere, like on the curtains and across the wall and all over the floor. Clearly terrified she put her puppy in a box and brought it to the vet. The vet was out when she got there but the receptioist said to just leave the puppy and that the vet would ring her when he was back.

 

A while later she got a phone call from the vet as promised. He was like “Where did you get this animal” and she was like “I found him when I was over in Germany and now I really love him so I brought him back, I just left him with my cat today and when I came back he’d eaten my cat, i didnt expect a PUPPY to do that!”

The vet was like “Puppy? This isn’t a puppy! it’s a WATER RAT!”

 

Seriously it was my friend’s sister’s friend’s mom’s friend’s brother’s daughter’s neighbour.

No Lie!

She even SLEPT with it!

Virgin Mary caught on kaleidoscope

“The centre of the earth is inhabited by a giant turtle 17 times the size of the largest ever recorded Blue Whale (108 feet or 32.9 metres). The Bloop was a sound emitted by a very slight shift of the turtle’s vast bulk, perhaps in response to geothermic change as a result of the increase in global atmospheric temperature. The turtle, affectionately named ‘Turtly’ by the scientists who discovered it (Dr. Aaron Saleb and Saani Dleidt, researchers in the field marine cryptozoology and fellows of Yengle College in the University of Zagreb, 2007) is thought to weigh over 3700 metric tonnes, with a shell that is almost 6.5 times thicker than the width of the Great Wall of China and is said to be capable of surviving temperatures in excess of 7000°C (the inner core of the earth reaches temperatures of about 6100°C). Saleb and Dleidt have calculated that ‘Turtly’ has been in hibernation for over 70 billion years now, and scientists fear that the recent movement (causing ‘The Bloop’) is an indication that it will awake in the relatively near future. The extent of it’s hibernation causes significant problems for previous evolutionary and developmental theories which would not have allowed for an animal as genetically sophisticated as the turtle to have existed 70 billion years ago. There are also fears that the recent movement of the turtle in response to climate change (the movement that resulted in the so-called ‘Bloop’ and, furthermore, the detection of the turtle itself) could be an indication that the turtle may awake from it’s hibernation in the relatively near future. Saleb and Dleidt are currently working on methods to restore the turtle’s hibernation and also predicting possible outcomes if the turtle were in fact to awaken. Dleidt claimed in a recent interview with Scientific American (2.23.09, Vol.2, 4) that we could be facing ‘cataclysmic global events far exceeding any conceivable nuclear or atmospheric catastrophe.’ ”

The Bloop

April 9, 2009

The Bloop is the name given to an ultra-low frequency underwater sound detected by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration several times during the summer of 1997. The source of the sound remains unknown.

The sound, traced to somewhere around 50° S 100° W (South American southwest coast), was detected repeatedly by the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array, which uses U.S. Navy equipment originally designed to detect Soviet submarines. According to the NOAA description, it “rises rapidly in frequency over about one minute and was of sufficient amplitude to be heard on multiple sensors, at a range of over 5,000 km.” According to scientists who have studied the phenomenon it matches the audio profile of a living creature but there is no known animal that could have produced the sound. If it is an animal, it would have to be, reportedly, much larger than even a Blue Whale, the largest known animal on the earth.

…the next time you’re making pasta, when you’re draining the water from it into the sink all the pasta falls into the sink

…you stub your toe.

…you get into bed and get really really cosy then realise that you have to pee so you have to walk across the cold cold floor to the bathroom.

…your sheets are inexplicably damp when you get into bed tonight.

…you’re walking along cobble stones and you almost trip but not quite and you try to regain composure but then realise that there were a bunch of people behind you watching the entire process.

…you get home and you really need to pee but you also really need to blow your nose at the same time.

…you have a really good dream just before waking up in the morning and you’re on an absolute high because in the dream you’re happier than you’ve ever been in your entire life but then the dream begins to fade from memory and soon it’s completely gone leaving you slightly depressed because you were happier than you ever were before in that dream and you can’t remember how you became so happy so you think perhaps you’ll never be that happy again.

…you finish washing up all the dishes and you leave all the water out of the sink and then your realise that there’s another tea spoon left to be washed.

…you think you have three pieces of chewing gum left so you give somebody two pieces and then you realise that you only had two pieces after all but it’s too late to say it to the person and they also feel awkward because they’ve taken all your chewing gum.

…you bite your tongue
