WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1122)



MOBIL HOMES WITH FOUNDATIONS

Folks were not surprised in Grayland, Washington, in December 2014, when a violent rainstorm blew in from the Pacific Ocean and destroyed three homes. Long ago they’d named the area “Washaway Beach.” Known for the most rapid erosion on the US Pacific coast, this neighborhood reportedly loses dozens of homes per year. (KOMO-TV/Seattle, 12-11-14)

AN EARLY CHRISTMAS BONUS

Just before Christmas 2014, BBC Middle Eastern correspondent Quentin Sommerville was taping a report standing in front of a rapidly burning fire, when all of a sudden he broke out in uncontrollable giggles. Sommerville had just said, "Burning behind me is eight and a half tons of heroin, opium, hashish and other narcotics” when, apparently, winds changed direction, getting him so “high” he no longer had control of his giggle box.

RE-PLAN YOUR VACATION, NOW? 
You ever heard of an "eargasms"? When the San Jose Mercury News did, they sent a reporter all the way to Ho Chi Minh City to check it out. Come to find out, this type of erotica is performed there in barber shops. Earwax is removed (i.e., foreplay?) while tickling a certain spot next to the ear drum, which has multiple nerve endings and tissue paper-thin skin. One female client described this pleasure with “Oh, my God!” and a male enjoyer said, "(This) brings a lot of happiness." (San Jose Mercury News, 1-23-2011)
