Default Weird or strange things you've witnessed

This came about by the post of remote fob'ing.

I thought of 2 quick

1. My father-in-law had locked himself out of his car (Corsica). I had the Z24, so I put my trunk key in his trunk and it opened it. It didn't work in the door

2. My brother had called DIshNetwork to say he was moving. My mother lost alot of channels on her DishNetwork. She called in and Dish said they were turned off because of a move. She informed them she wasn't moving anytime soon. It turns out they screwed up my bro'* order and turned off the wrong box. My mother'* box. There is no financial or account connection between the two. Of the 10'* of thousand Smiths on Dish, they screwed up an order that effected mother and son.

Weird.

One time some friends and I needed into a university supplied GMC van to get our belongings and leave an event early, but we could not find our professor with the keys. One friend tried her double sided Jeep Cherokee key in the single sided key door lock and it worked.

Just last night, my wife and I rented two movies: Lord of War and Two for the Money. I paid no attention to what I was grabbing from behind the Two for the Money display box. We get home and realize we have infact two widescreen copies of Lord of War. Of all the misplaced movies, I grab the same movie we planned on renting.

At the time i did tihnk that i may have seen some grey matter in the chunk, but what about the other types of flesh in it? and how would so many different types of flesh gather into 1 neat chunk that just happened to be loose enough to sneeze out without so much as a nose bleed, i really have no idea but my maine theory is tumor

EDIT: but i have no idea how sneezing out said chunk would instantly relieve all my symtoms which included fever and fatigue, those normally take time to recover from. but perhaps the shock of seeing such a thing caused a rush of adrenaline which may seem to be an instant relief from the fatigue

About 5 years ago, they removed a grapefruit sized lump out of my grandpa'* back. After examination, it turned out to be his twin, that while in his mother'* womb, his embryo consumed (they still don't know how). It consisted of skin, teeth, muscle, fat, and bone.
