Other People's Stories: "These stories have been overheard and misheard, told and re-told and sometimes refined over time. They do not shy from hearsay, gossip, myth or guys we knew in high school." Some of the stories are funny (warning: NSFW picture on that link), others sad, scary, and some just bizarre.

Ooops. I searched for the link, but didn't find it. Sorry!

You probably left "In the last month" as the time period. I suspect that's responsible for at least half the doubles around here; Matt should probably change the default.

Well, shit, that just consumed an entire evening of my so-called life.

Which, in retrospect, was a lot better than wasting it on television, like so many others do. And probably no worse than wasting it on unpaid work, which is what I'd normally half-assedly do.

I didn't see it the first time. Thanks, eclectica.

Last time this was posted, I think the site was new, and the stories were a little thin on the ground, so I forgot all about it. I don't care that this is a repost, the site is now superb, thanks for bringing it back to me!

I just love that story about the apple green zoot suit.

This is why I'm appreciative of double posts. Chances are, I'd never have spotted it otherwise. And that would be a shame, since it's a really great site.

Great stories. Very "This American Life".
