There are just some situations in life you have to actually live through to believe. You go through it and have to wonder... "how the heck did I get myself in this moment?" And of course those are the juiciest of life moments you want to share and laugh with others about, however, you realize they'd never believe you. But in fact truth is stranger than fiction.
Redditor u/KindaDepressive wanted to know what sordid details they can't discuss in mixed company by asking..... What experience of yours is so crazy, you don't tell people about it because they wouldn't believe you?
I used to sweat blue for a few months. My clothes, nails, and phone cover all got stained blue. It went away after a while on its own, which was good because the doctors couldn't figure it out. PerilousPeach
In my Leg.
I was like 12 years old and played with my dog in the back yard. He suddenly stopped and just looked at my leg. There was a piece of wood in my leg. It was ~8 cm long and in 90° angle in my leg. It didn't hurt. I didn't feel anything. To this day I'm wondering how this stick found its way into my leg. sevenrandomnumbers
One time after school i was emptying my bag on my bed. I had a sandwich wrapped in cling wrap from lunch that I didn't eat. I dropped the sandwich on the floor and I went to pick it up. I couldn't find it anywhere. I checked under my bed, in my bag, all over the floor and under any items. I never found that sandwich. smithsonian_95
When i was younger i worked at a popular theme park in the UK as a ride assistant. one of the rides i worked on was the River Rapids. Two young scouse lads who had obviously been drinking got on and it was clear they were going to be a pain in the butt. As their Raft came towards the end, they both were running around the outsides of it. The raft hits the wall and they both fell in. this is near the lift section of the ride which if they'd been snagged would have torn them up badly. i ran down and god knows how, managed to pull them both out.
They were both swiftly escorted to the medical centre and I'm assuming off park. The same day, after i finish work, i went to go and see a friend for a few hours and on my way home i follow a car that is all over the place. The car hits a curb and flips onto its roof. i stop my car, run across, yank the doors open and pull both the the occupants out. Same two lads I'd pulled out of the water at work earlier in the day. drewhunter1981
When I was a teenager I almost got run over by Robert Pattinson in my hometown. It's a smaller city between Bruges & Ghent. He was driving a Mercedes, probably on his way from Brussels to the hotel he was staying in on the coast. I'm 100% sure it was him, he was in Brussels for a premiere for the latest Twilight movie at the time. Only told my dad. MrKennefff
Out of the Blue....
One day completely out of the blue my daughter (8) started telling me she wanted to look out the window to see shooting stars. I told her its very rare to see any shooting stars where we live (Yonkers, NY.)
She was really adamant that we should look and try to see one anyway, so I walk with her over to our living room window and look out with her. I swear not 10 seconds had passed before a meteor went streaking by, closer than any I had ever seen. You could see the trail it left in the sky and it glowed bright red.
She got so excited and ran to tell my wife that she saw one. My wife does not believe that me or my daughter saw a meteor that quickly, I swear on my life it happened. Artikay
Out of the Train.
I was on a train and this train had one of those chains which you pull in case of an emergency and it stops the train and if you pull it for no reason you can face upto 2 years in prison and a huge fine. So I was just sitting and when I decided to get up to go to the washroom, I was kind of stuck so I used the nearest thing to help me get up and what I pulled was the chain. Suddenly the train stopped and I was like o-crap here I go to the prison.
When suddenly people started running out of the train (P.S the train had no doors you would understand if you know what an average local Indian train looks like I don't know about other countries) and what I realized was that a compartment of the train was on fire. So... That's how I survived from going to prison and accidentally saved the train. I told this story to a friend but he would not believe me so I just let it go.
TLDR - I save train and no go prison. :) AssassinxMC
My friend and I once missed the last train home after a gig and wandered around a nearby harbor, killing time until the trains started up again. A drunk man (around 50yo, ~30 years older than us at the time) stumbled out of a building and invited us onto his boat.
We sat with him drinking rum for a few hours while he regaled us with stories about all the sex parties he'd hosted on this boat. I didn't believe him but I was warm and had a drink in hand so I humored him. He eventually pulled a lever near the front which opened a secret door to a sex dungeon, filled with all kinds of bondage gear and adult toys.
We then added each other on Facebook and my friend and I went to catch our train back to London. UpDownStrange
The Wild Birds.
I like watching wild birds at my work. I watched a young magpie steal bread off a raven. The magpies family then attacked the young magpie, took the bread off and gave it back to the raven. They were bird yelling at the young bird. Then called to the young magpie and kinda forced it to the front of the pack to the raven.
The adult magpies gently pecked at the young magpie until it sung at the raven. Then the magpies all waddled away and went back to hunting for bugs.
I feel like I watched some sort of family magpie discipline to prevent an interspecies bird war. paperconservation101
"I need to drink water"Giphy
Was crossing the border at the golden triangle from Thailand into Myanmar.
Had a heat stroke due to dehydration and passed out in the middle of the street right after the passport control. Woke up to 5 armed soldiers pointing rifles in my face. Don't speak a word of Thai or any other Asian language.
I signalled "I need to drink water" with my hands and they gave me a Coca Cola and helped me sit down in a nearby chair. 1992vapor
