Nowadays with the Internet spawning social media sites and a host of other places for people to come and get a few laughs, or marvel at something amazing, or stare dumbfounded at things so strange you can’t imagine what on earth they were meant to be, we’re left with the impression that we live in a day and age where the world is just an odd place. But guess what? That’s how our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. felt too. Seems like life has always been just plain strange, and here are some examples of it:
1. Brave Man Testing Bulletproof Vest — A “brave” man wearing a bulletproof vest, standing straight and tall, proudly facing a man who has just fired several shots at him and looks like he’s preparing to fire more.
2. Elvis Presley in the Army — This photo was taken of the great Elvis Presley while he was in the army, and looking more than a little like he wanted to be anywhere but.
3. Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin — Now for a bit of good cheer, this is a snapshot of the original Winnie the Pooh and his pal Christopher Robin in 1927.
4. Sun Tan Vending Machine — Shows a woman using a sun tan vending machine back in 1949, before people ever thought about skin cancer.
