What have you guys seen that has struck you as odd?

I've got a million of these from mechanical inventions to dog-training methodologies to software solutions to martial arts strategies to decision making methodologies to riddles and philosophies for life in general.

Too busy to post mine now but I wanted to get the out there while it's still fresh in my mind.

What Random examples of 'out of box' thinking have you seen?

Since you mentioned "philosophies for life" I would nominate both Nietzsche and Heidegger for challenging many of the basic assumptions of Western thought since Plato. In music, perhaps Stravinski and Glass for pushing composition in new directions.
