Years ago St. Augustine had a doll shop/museum that was pretty creepy.  Every once in a while I'll see an old postcard from the place in some of the tourist shops around town.  The displays were very dim and the dolls looked odd.

There is a shop near one of the local colleges that caters to clothing for men whom dress as women.
One of my uncles knows the bloke who runs the place.

Apparently, they get alot of business.

there's this chain of allegedly food places where I live. they have this logo that they call the "golden arches" and they have commercials on TV like literally everywhere. They serve the most god-awful food in the universe. I have NO idea why so many people eat there. Totally baffles me....

I wouldn't want any taxidermied animals that had been near cheese either! Some of the gases cheese produces while fermenting can be toxic.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Ahhhhhh come in now... The sausage and egg biscuit with orange juice is not so bad.

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

There's a strange old house that has a Vineyard at the back and amazingly, people live there and sell the Wine. The house looks as though it'll collapse with a gust of wind.

There was this inn near my town that had a meth lab going on in the basement. People would always complain about weird smells. A friend of mine stayed there once and she said it smelled really bad. Eventually authorities found out and shut down the place.

Not sure if it counts as weird or strange but I thought it'd be interesting to share.

They conveniently supply the perfect weapons for killing a werewolf in one place. Lure him out with a steak and then pump his heart full of silver!
