My eyes are two different colors, and the question I'm most often asked about them is , 'Did you know your eyes are two different colors?' I'm amused when someone asks me whether I see different colors out of each eye, or - even better - whether I 'see in 3D.' - MelilDeMolihua


I used to be a cast member at a rennaisance faire, and we did fairly historic reenactment, right down to the wood burning oven at our village inn. I once had a grown man ask me if the fire in the fire pit was real, and what would happen if he stuck his hand in it. - lebaneseblondechick

About 25 years ago I was explaining time zones to a 20ish year old intern at a large scientific agency. She wasn't getting it, so I got an orange I brought for lunch and used it as the Earth.

Me: Ok, pretend this is the Earth. The sun only shines on one side, so it's day on approximately half at any given time. Now since the Earth rotates (as I spin the orange)...

Intern: So wait. Hold on. So you're saying the Earth is round? I wish I was joking. - NittanyJim
