Journalist Somehow Loses His Pants While Completely Sober—Then Makes A Startling And Hilarious Discovery

We've all had a great "I was so drunk I (blank)" story. Sometimes you perform a dangerous stunt. Sometimes your pants come off. It's all in good fun.

Of course, sometimes you're Daniel Dale, correspondent for the Toronto Star, and you lose your pants while completely sober.

That's not a euphemism; he literally lost his jeans and had no idea where they were.


No, I'm not kidding.



Dale was visiting Arizona when he made the discovery that a pair of his jeans were missing. Later that morning, as he drove down the road to breakfast, he notices some jeans in the road.

It takes him three minutes to put two and two together.

Unfortunately, this is where the trail ends. There are no other clues as to what happened.

We can't even blame him being in an altered state of mind, as Dale says he doesn't drink or do drugs.





That doesn't stop us from postulating what could have happened.

His jeans somehow escaped his bag, slipped out of a moving vehicle and sat in the road all night without anyone moving them. This happened in Phoenix, and let me tell you, Arizona has a weird energy to it.

I will point out, that Dale is the Toronto Star's Washington correspondent, meaning he has to research the lies of politicians often.

And by 'politicians', I mean almost exclusively Donald Trump.

While drugs and alcohol might not be blamed for his state of mind, we've no idea what effect looking at Trump's actions for too long might do to the human mind. For all our science knows, this could induce some kind of pants throwing mental state.

Or maybe they just got up on their own in the middle of the night?





I know what you're thinking, "Daniel Dale made this whole thing up." This is a fair point. But it's also the most boring point, so we're going to ignore it.

Plus, it'd be really disappointing if a man who is so associated with calling out Trump's lies was just a sensationalist liar himself.

As I said, the trail is cold from here.





On one hand, Dale is grateful he was able to get his pants back. On the other hand, I'm sure he wants to know what happened to them as much as we do.

In the meantime, all as can do is speculate.

What could have happened to those pants?

Growing up I was a total sucker for books like Uncle John's Bathroom Reader and the yearly almanacs. I just love reading random facts and learning about superlatives! There is so much information out there and the quest for knowledge never ends, no matter how obscure!

After Redditor apemodeman asked the online community, "What's your favorite random fact?" people weighed in. The more you know!

Evil is very, very real and it lives among us. There are far too many tv shows, movies, literature and podcasts reporting on so many vile and depraved acts. We all have a few degrees of separation from the topic of murder. We either know someone directly or of someone whose life has been taken in gruesome fashion. And half the time we are all turned into super sleuths with the answer to the crime. If only we could prove it. (One day Carole Baskin)

Redditor u/violetgnome wanted to discuss some of humanity's darkest mysteries we maybe able to solve by asking.... What unsolved murder are you sure you have the answer to and what is the answer?
