Weird things you noticed lately

In this thread you can post random observations of weird things you noticed lately.
  • It seems to be a concentrated effort to use pinterest to block out useful search results from google at this point. It's not uncommon to see dozens of useless pinterest posts in the first search result pages.
  • Deer antlers seems to be a symbol of the satanic arm of the grapplers. (still not sure how many of them are satanists) Commonly found in coffee shops, real estate etc.

This might be because people don't know SEO applies to images and can be strategically used in similar ways as articles. Pinterest, probably the biggest image board, has that SEO down pat.

Still annoying but I don't use Google too much.

My workplace got rid of those change feed newspaper stands right around the time the Germ fear started. Probably considered a health risk. Sigh. I had no affinity for USA today at all really, and I was always too much of a cheapskate to put in that $1.25, but I sure miss it now. I may have enjoyed myself a lot more doing those pencil and paper crosswords instead of dicking around on my phone like everybody else does in the breakroom.

My mailbox has been getting handwritten offers from different "investor"-groups who are offering to pay cash for the house; no commission, fast sale, house in any condition. Always bottom-signed by multiple people, first name only.

I wonder if the Covid-19 hysteria is fuelling some sort of new 'blockbusting' endeavor.


Same has been happening to me as well. I have also received text messages about it too.


I've been seeing a lot of males with fag bags for some time now. And gays with dogs that also look gay.

Yes, these "accessories" "men" have been wearing lately have been very suspect. I've seen multiple individuals of a particular demographic wearing crossbody fanny packs like its masculine.

It's probably got as much to do with your mortgage balance, rate, bank etc. as it does with your house. Perhaps more.
Either that or some recent court filing - divorce or death in the family resulting in probate action often triggers the sale-sniffers out there.

Have noticed we seem to be destroying western civilization so that a couple of generations of women can ride a dopamine wave in their teens and 20s.

That and men with waxed/shaved legs. I remember a girl mentioned to me a while ago that some men shave their armpits and legs now and I didn't believe it.

Have noticed it twice now, grown men wearing shorts and completely smooth legs.

It could be due to heavy estrogen levels also.
