Two More Unusual Recent Events
Two more unexplained events just occurred over the past couple of days.
For the first one, I was standing by my aquarium and feeding my fish when I heard a squeaky, plastic scraping plastic sound like when you insert a straw into a plastic lid. Next to my fish tank is my trash can, and on the floor was a recent cup from a fast food place. That cup was where the sound came from, and sure enough the straw had risen by a couple of inches.
I still don’t know how this occurred.
The air pressure, temperature and humidity in the room have been at a constant level all summer. The floor was still. Nothing was moving except for me putting food into the aquarium, and that was just a gentle, upper arm movement.
What’s interesting is that I’ve had a lot of fast food cups in my room at times (it’s a habit) under a wide variety of atmospheric conditions, and none of them have ever made a sound like what I heard the other night. Throw in the fact that the straw was higher and is believed to have physically moved, and there you go.
The other event happened late last night in the kitchen.
I was getting a drink out of the fridge, and when I was getting ready to close the door, I heard a very loud POP! from behind me. This one sounded like taking a plastic container, pressing in on one of its sides, and letting it pop back into place. The only difference was that this was so loud that it sounded like somebody popped a balloon. Ive heard a variety of containers make the popping sounds before after being recently handled, but the sound of this one was significantly louder.
The other interesting part of this mysterious sound was that after looking around, I could not find whatever it was that I heard. Nothing was out of place. The only large plastic containers that I knew of were either in the fridge or on the other side of me near the kitchen trash can. I couldn’t find anything else that could have made the sound throughout the rest of the kitchen. And just for the record, those plastic containers on the floor were not dented before I walked into the room.
I still have no idea what could have caused that very loud popping sound. There’s probably a good reason behind it, but I’ve never heard it happen like this.
