    Whether you are the driver or a passenger in a vehicle, somethings you see outside the window are worth mentioning. One time while I was driving, there was a group of about 8 or so dogs in the back of someone's truck. The funny part about it was that the dogs were just sitting on an worn out couch chilling like any other day. My dog freaks out whenever a window is open, so for the dogs to be so relaxed just boggled my mind. What is the weirdest thing you've seen while on a drive?

    Well nothing happened to me but in 7th grade, something happened to the boys in my school they didn't just saw they lived it. The Boys school bus somehow broke down and they saw this white lady; and here's the thing; They Broke down near the cemetery and it was foggy on of the kids was crying and and another one had to be badly. One of them had to be badly, so a new bus came and went to pick them up, then again they saw the white lady and took a picture of before the flash in the phone ended she was gone. Let me see if i can find the facebook picture one of them posted.

    It wasn't too weird, but I'd been having a bad day, and I was driving home, and I had just made it to my small home town. Walking up the street was a stormtrooper. Full armor and everything. I was super sad because I didn't have a camera with me. I think I might have pulled off and selfie'd with him. He did brighten my day though

    On two completely separate occasions, I have passed two different people on the highway playing instruments while driving. I'm not going to even get into how dangerous that is, but one was playing a trumpet (which is doable I guess, since you only really need one hand to play it), and the other was playing a violin. I can understand the trumpet even if it is a bit nuts, but a violin? While driving?? You need two hands to play that thing, so how the hell are you steering- with your feet??? Needless to say, those two definitely gave me a serious double-take, haha.

    While searching my memory banks for such an occasion, I had expected to find the incident in question at a time since acquiring my driver's licence. But, upon recollection, it appears to be quite the opposite - it happened at a time in which I wasn't even an adult yet.

    I was travelling to spend the day at an amusement park with family. Due to an accident on the highway leading to there, much of the traffic was rerouted onto side-streets - which caused a lot of clog on those streets as well. It was a thoroughly miserable experience and no one was moving very fast at all.

    However, I noticed something rather peculiar. There was a puppet in appearance not unlike a Muppet, coming from either the sunroof or the window of the car 2 positions ahead of us, simply goofing around and doing things that puppets are wont to do - waving, dancing, smiling, that sort of thing. It was a rather small and simple gesture, but it was brightening to see, and it made the traffic a lot more bearable to endure, both for myself and probably the other cars around it as well.

    It certainly counts as strange, for sure, but it's the good kind of strange.

    We were driving through downtown Detroit extremely late at night once, heading to drop off my grandma and her friend at the bus station. There was a bunch of mist (or smoke?) rising out of the potholes in the road, which gave the already-empty area a slightly spooky feel, and once or twice we saw some people walking on the sidewalks alone and in an odd way, not wearing coats or anything despite it having been winter time. I'm normally not afraid of venturing down into Detroit at all, but I was pretty glad when we got back to our own side of town later that night.

    I've seen some interesting things while being on the highway in rural Oklahoma and Texas.

    First off was all the carcases. We actually created a highway game called "name the dead animal" because there were so many flattened critters on the side of the highway. Most of the time they were armadillos or snakes or rabbits, but one time I saw the body of a goat just laying by the road. I also saw a snake about 20 feet in length. Both were pretty interesting at least.

    Then there was the time that I was in a bus with all fifty people in my ninth grade class for nine straight hours driving through Texas. I have some very interesting stories from that, including playing Slap Jack (or ERS is another name for it) with fifty people at once and singing "Paula the koala" for a full hour, but the weirdest thing happened while we were stuck in a traffic jam in the heartland of Texas. We were moving pretty slowly and everyone was bored and looking out the windows when we noticed a car pulled over to the side. A few of us casually looked into the windows as we crawled by and there were two people in that car doing things that nobody wants a bus full of ninth graders observing them do. So of course, one of the guys yells "everybody look at this!" and all fifty of us move to the side of the bus fast enough to make the bus tilt slightly. The bus didn't move out of sight of that car for over a minute, and while I did not have nor did I want a good vantage point of the situation, I was assured that the looks on the faces of the people in the car were beyond priceless.

    Wow, so that game really is universal. Though I have to ask, how the hell did you play that game with 50 people at once? Unless you have players trading off every so often, or have multiple decks of cards, that is literally impossible.

    I saw a pick up truck carrying a bunch of brush in its bed that was so thick I couldn't see the truck, so it looked like there was a moving bush on the road. it was HILARIOUS.

    Hmm, I can't really remember anything specific. But when I'm in my neighbourhood, I often see men running around nude. It has happened so many times I don't even care to take a look.

    I took a trip out west a few years ago, and I saw a tumbleweed.

    And the time where it looked like there was a little chihuahua driving, haha.

    I have the list(tm)
    - Lady in toronto putting on makeup at a red light, steering with her knees.
    - People walking their dogs in strollers
    - Pedestrians who just stand in the street, doing nothing
    - People piggybacking each other down the street
    - People towing like huge carts of shit on their bikes

    We just used five decks so that everyone could play. Though while it wasn't impossible it was pretty damn near it, considering we all had to be in pretty close quarters. It involved a lot of ducking and weaving, many people getting injured, and more than a few instances of everyone getting knocked to the floor of the bus in a huge pile because somebody in the back lept to slap the deck. It was rather insane and honestly a terrible idea, but it was pretty fun too.

    One day, me and my sister were driving home after we got food. We came to this intersection, with the light red so we had to stop, and in the corner was this really obscure house, and this weird old lady came out. She got onto her knees, and began bathing herself in paint. She just slathered paint all over herself, and then took off her boots and poured paint into them. Next, she began tearing out blades of grass and threw them up in the air as she danced (I'm not even sure I can call it that, that's how weird it was). Me and my sister just looked at eachother.

    There was also another experience, where me and my family were driving to this really good diner, and I was in the back seat, with not too much to really do. So, I sat there and watched as we strolled down the highway, when a car came up next to us. I don't know why the girl in the back seat had makeup on that made her look like a clown (literally, not in the sense as of stupid) and she was just staring straight at me. I kinda looked away and back, and the car was gone. I'm pretty sure I was daydreaming or something, because... That was weird. There was also a guy in full Spiderman costume with a backpack walking on the sidewalk, but eh.

    Driving down Georgia I saw a very large (fat), ginger, hairy man with no shirt, in a Scottish kilt, and no kidding playing a bagpipe on the side walk in some neighborhood

    Once while I was in a bus, I saw a mountain lion dash across the road right in front of it.

    I'm boring, I know.

    While I was driving to work one day, I seen my sister driving next to me going to the store. She was dancing so hard in her seat that she started to make the car move.

    I was happy that I wasn't with her at the time.
