People weird: There was a woman in my old neighborhood who was definitely on the odd side. First, her house: she completely covered the walls of her house with rough, black-colored, lava-like rock. There were only two windows in the entire facade, and they were small (like 2’ by 2’) and made of orange pebbled glass. Next, her personal appearance: she frequently walked around the neighborhood and invariably wore a velour bell-bottomed pantsuit. She had about 10 of these in different colors: pink, lime-green, brown, beige, etc. and she wore platform shoes. She wore a ton of makeup and she teased her hair into a tight cylinder that stood straight up on top of her head, about 13 inches high and 3 inches in diameter.
Wild Kingdom weird: I was outside having a smoke by the little wooden ‘shed’ that housed the pool-pump at my MIL’s house. The roof of this shed was sloped a little and there were several little jumping spiders crawling around on it. I was idly watching them when a wasp (or maybe it was a yellowjacket) flew up and hovered above the surface of the shed. One of the spiders took notice, and kind of flicked a couple of legs in the air. The wasp came closer. The spider jumped and grabbed the wasp. Spider and wasp rolled around furiously on the shed roof for a couple of seconds, then suddenly rose into the air. The wasp, with the spider still clinging to it, flew away. Wow.
