Then he looks at me and smiles. I felt violated and confused as to how to react. After all, there is not much in the way of standard social protocol regarding such situations. So I just uneasily washed my hands and left, not bothering to do the usual shake-the-snake post urination ritual.

Now, l have no issue with a man's preference, whatever tops your pizza I say. It was just so...direct.

Though now that I think about it, maybe it just means that my genitals are so awesomely perfect that complete strangers are want to gaze upon them in admiration. :v:
I am a meatgazer. In my youth I was briefly traumatized in a nightclub restroom. A tall, pretty, statuesque woman in heels, a short dress and a lovely choker necklace walked into the restroom, bellied up to the urinal next to me, hiked the hem of her dress and out flopped a penis big enough to nearly shatter the urinal cake. In the brighter light of the restroom, I could make out the faint stubble, and the fact that the choker was hiding an adam's apple. She looked at me and made a "pfft" sound of dismissal, and went about her business. That's when I realized, with some embarrassment, that I was the one "meatgazing." Meatgawking,in fact.She didn't say "jeez, buy me a drink if you want to stare" or "take a picture" or anything, just that little contemptuous laugh. I went back to the bar, she came out a few minutes later, and the evening went on for both of us. Ever since then, I've occasionally snuck a peek at other mens' genitalia - I try to be discreet, but it's for science. To date, that transvestite had the biggest unit I've ever seen.

Actually, if a big d****d transvestite was the strangest thing I'd ever seen, I could say I've led a sheltered life...

You should see Camp Pickett. The place is over run with wild turkeys. Not little ones either but big 20-25 lb wild birds. They are everywhere on the base even the post HQs.

One of the strangest things I have seen was while in AZ camping out in the desert.

Some friends and I went out camping, and set up a camp only to notice that there was an ant colony about a foot away from our south west corner of the camp. Since we were doing an open camp with just some blankets and sleeping bags no tents or tarps we started considering moving the camp, but really liked the spot. So instead we left the ants an offering. We took an orange opened the rind with a little bite and left it right next to the ant's hole as sort of an offering to say we would respect them if they respected us.

We had a great night's sleep and no ant trouble. Upon waking in the morning we noticed the ants were travelling in straight lines in front of our camp and to the side, but not gong into our camp. It was while watching the little guys work we noticed the strange thing. They had hollowed out the orange, leaving the thin fleshy parts between the segments. Sitting on top of the hollowed out orange rind were 3 or 4 or the weirdest super uber ants we had ever seen. These things looked like what an ant would look like if it took Dr Jeckle's potion! The uber ants as we started calling them had giant pinchers, were at least 6-8 times the size of the other ants if not larger, they were bloated and semi see threw, and they were sitting on top the orange we left the ant colony like they were guarding it. It was so bizarre, we don't know if they were special ants that usually stay in the colony or if they were effected by the orange we left and became that way. Sadly none of us had a camera or we would have taken a picture. One of us was actually a photographer and he was pissed he left his camera at home.

It still a strange thing to see. An uber ant that possibly was created by our act of leaving that orange for them. The rest of our camping trip we invented stories of how a whole religion and culture built up around the orange and the hollowed rind became some sort of holly temple. Until one day the monsoons come and a few ants are saved by riding inside the hollowed rind to a new colony. Thus saving the story of the orange for future ants to learn. :clap:

*edit to add, Maybe one of these days I should leave an orange for another ant colony and see if the same thing happens. It would be interesting to find out. And this time take some pictures.

Take a bike pump and pump up the ant in that picture to 6-8 times it's size so it looks bloated and like it just drank a Dr Jeckle potion to become a Hyde Ant, then yep that is what it looked like, sort of. :wink:

Seriously these ants looked quite abnormal, not your run of the mill ants. As I mentioned either they were effected by the orange, or they were special ants that came out of the colony to protect the orange rind.

Enter the mole cricket.

During basic training I witnessed a guy eat a huge mole cricket for 100$. He only ended up collecting 20$ and some guys that he'll never see again owe him the other 80 :lol:

Shit, I'd eat a mole cricket just to gross people out and because I am hungry.

So glad I watched the continuing adventures of what doesn't come out right after the disturbing medical dance. Now I'm thinking about riding zebras GTA style, not nightmare fuel.

I believe this is what people refer to as art, I bet tickets cost a fortune.

Fun fact, in Swedish, the word for art is the same word as strange, wich kinda makes sense when seeing something like this.
