People Are Sharing Unbelievable True Stories And We're Skeptical

Into even the smallest of lives, some unbelievable wonder falls. Too bad no one will believe it. Even if you have a reputation for brutal honesty, there are some things that happen to a person in their life that you better have witnesses for. 

Twitter user @mhoye decided to give everyone an opportunity to air these special events by asking followers “what’s the least plausible story about yourself that’s true.” The request blew up, because apparently a lot of people have been sitting on some crazy-ass stories for a long, long time.

Some comments are clearly jokes, but most of the stories are almost too weird to make up—or a little too on the nose, like this story about being related to the creator of Pinocchio. Is your nose growing, @AJLorenzini?

There are several stories of muggings that turned out surprisingly well:

Though one openly incorporates lying:

Sure, the ferrets made your dad not go to work:

Does anyone believe Tommy Wiseau had an acting coach?

This just sounds like bad audience etiquette:

There are stories that incorporate famous people, like Mr. Worldwide:

And also famous locations, like a movie set contaminated with poop:

But the stories of coincidence might be the best ones:

And the stories that remind you to clear all your past debts to society ASAP:

Some of these stories seem like they were lifted from the movies:

Both rom-coms and horror flicks:

Or maybe an animated movie about plucky pets:

But basically nothing that has to do with science or medical trauma seems real. How do any of us manage to live so long?

And how do you say no to Justin Bieber? The answer is apparently that you can’t:

But I believe this one, because nothing is more useful than a towel:

And this one, because McDonald’s is like this:

Whether you believe any of these stories or not, they make a fascinating read. And amongst all the tall tales, there’s a least this one guy who brought the receipts:

This Grandma Got A Cosplay Makeover And She Looks Unbelievable

Alexandra Brumley is a photographer with a special focus on cosplay. She loves costumes, the actors who don costumes, and placing them in their magical world with her camera:

She covers comic book characters, video games, anime, Disney, Star Wars, and even characters from fairytales. Also Taylor Swift.

Brumley has managed to touch on just about every fantasy theme in her work, but she recently announced a new project that’s much more personal.

On twitter she shared photos of her grandmother on her birthday, dressing up for her first experience doing cosplay and looking fan-freaking-tastic:

Brumley wrote on Instagram that she assembled her grandmother’s costume from old pieces she’s made, and is calling her character “Snow Queen Mother.”

In another posts she added that her grandmother suffered a stroke, and lives with Brumley’s parents.

Winter amongst the family is a bit quiet and sad, as it’s a time marked by the memory of loss.

Brumley says that she realized she didn’t have as many picture of loved ones as she wishes she did, including her grandfather, so including family members in her fantasy world is an important connection for her to make.

Though Brumley’s grandmother looks very serious and majestic in her photo, Brumley still has a playful view of her real connection to her:

Brumley has a relatively small following on Twitter, but her pictures of her grandmother have been retweeted over ten thousand times. They’re just that good.

And Brumley’s grandmother loves them too:

Can’t wait until the whole family gets their shoot!
