We have all heard some pretty strange stories in our lives. But every once in a while, we come across an event that is so incredibly strange that we can't believe it actually happened. For example, take the case of the man who woke up in a coffin after being pronounced dead. Or the woman who found a live frog in her salad. These stories may seem like they were taken from a work of fiction, but they are actually based on real events. And while we may never know exactly what happened in each case, one thing is for sure: strange things do happen, and sometimes, truth really is stranger than fiction.

We all know about the big, life-changing events that we somehow missed. The time someone else caught the bouquet at our wedding or when we slept through our own child's birth. But what about all of the smaller, odder events that we missed without even realizing it? Here are just a few of them.
