Strangest thing you've seen fall from the sky?

Sitting in my office on the 2nd floor of a 10 story building in downtown Seattle. See something fall past my window and hear the "thump" as it hits the sidewalk below. I look down and it's a BIG f'ing rat! Plastered on the sidewalk. Either fell off the roof of the building 100 feet up or maybe got dropped by a large bird?

Got me thinking, what other crazy shit have people seen drop out of nowhere?

Those He-UGE fuzzy orange spiders are all over my yard. When I walk thru the web, they drop onto the ground, if I am lucky. Now I walk like a zombie sweeping my arms up/down, especially between the trees

Lol. I thought I was the only one who did the anti-spider zombie walk.

Nope. I do it all the time on my way to fill the bird feeder.

Because I'm just too lazy at O-dark:30 to pick up a stick or anything, and I can see the spiders if they happen to be on my arms.

Not a building but I had a bird fly over my car and drop a dead snake on my hood last year. Miraculously I didn't scream like a little girl or crash my car.

THIS...




Here is the (some of the)back story...
https://www.stripes.com/news/sergean...uilty-1.526073

Also Sgt. John Skipper, 29, was found guilty at court martial in Vilseck, Germany, of destroying military property and giving a false official statement, according to a statement from the 7th Army Training Command, based in Grafenwoehr, Germany

The load master was also disciplined and commanding officer (A full bird Colonel)of the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Graf was also relived of command. Also the guys who were laughing and commenting in this video also got into trouble for making this video. lol

Back in early 90's over dozen of pigeons fall from the sky on my street all dead. It was right after the earthquake we had. What a horrible day it was..

I was at Auto Club Speedway on the Oval doing 140mph+ and a bird swooped in and hit my windshield....felt bad about it, but there was nothing I could do. I have the slo-mo video if anyone wants to see it.

I was driving home from a skifield and saw a bird hit the windscreen of the car in front and go straight up in the air. About 10 seconds later it landed on my bonnet.

Back country road....60 mph. Mercedes with a stand up hood ornament.

Out of the blue sky a hawk chasing a dove dove for space in front of the car. The hawk flared and his claws kissed the windshield (basically wings covered the upper third of the glass.


Dove was not nearly as agile. Strained it through the hood ornament......blam....all over the glass.

No reason to touch the wipers....it wouldn't clear it.

We pulled into a local car wash and it looked like we had killed someone. No idea there was that much blood in a dove....

Crazy person jumped out of 4th story window, landed on the railing about 15ft in front of me. Still replays in slow-mo sometimes, when I think of it.

As far as something I've actually seen, human shit.

But also some asshole started firing gunshots in the air while we were waiting outside for New Year's fireworks. We didn't stick around to watch the bullets come back down, but I heard a couple of the rounds hitting a building roof

There was that time in junior high. Heard the screech of tires and crunch. Then a wheel came bouncing thru the trees, followed shorty by a guy shaking like a leaf who turned partially and pissed into said trees
