    i used to live in St. Cloud, and there was a guy that walked around in a Superman costume EVERYWHERE -- he was a little off, and occassionally got busted for loitering -- he would stand on the steps of the courthouse and pose with chest out :jj:

    FIYAH! Guy

    I was out walking the dogs one day and we cut through the back of some condos only turn some lunatic in an unexposed corner building crouching down making a giant mound of newspaper and starting to light it on fire. As it started to burn the dogs went crazy and were barking at the guy. He had seen us approaching but by the time he lit it we were maybe 30 feet away. Even with the dog barking like crazy he was totally entranced on the fire. :nutz:

    Ran to the corner payphone. Called the cops. They said they were looking for an arsonist. Odd there was not one word in the news or paper about it. Took almost 30 minutes to get to him. :rolleyes: By then he must have either ditched his stuff or it had burnt out. But the cops to his away for psych eval. only. Saw FIYAH guy back on the street about 4 weeks later. Called the cops and said WTH? Said he checked out ok and they didn't have any evidence to hold him longer. :doh:

    One reason I now carry a digital pic/vid camera with me everywhere.

    None where I live now, my neighborhood is super safe, i.e. "nothin but rich white people"

    When I lived in Laguna Beach their was this lady named "Samantha", and she would dress in long, flowing black robes. Even during the heat of the summer. She dyed her hair jet black, and rubbed coal all over any exposed part of her body. If you stared at her she would stop and cast a spell on you in Latin. She ended up becoming born again, and once she was cleaned up she turned out to be really pretty.

    I worked in a tattoo shop, and we had this fat retarded kid that would dress like Elvis and he had a died black pompadour. He would carry a boom box that played nothing but Elvis Presley's "Live In Hawaii" album. For awhile he had a gang of misfits that would kick the shit out of anyone that made fun of the retarded Elvis.

    Dude lives across the street from us. We call him 'shirtless Pete' as he usually wears minimal clothing. He sits on his porch all day 'keeping an eye on the neighborhood' and such.

    There was a time (when we first bought the house) when I tried to be neighborly. The guy had a stroke, can't drive, has to use a walker to get around, and didn't seem like his family was around much. I'd take him meals, bake cookies for him, take in his mail, drive him to the grocery store.

    I stopped after a while because the dude was a perv. Always making inappropriate sexual comments to me and others in public. He once told my son-in-law how he thought I had a beautiful ass. Apparently he'd been observing me cut the grass for some time.

    The dude gives me the creeps now and he still tries to engage me in conversation when I leave my house.

    My guy is a relatively famous one.

    His name is Henry Earl. He's a homeless alcoholic who had been arrested almost nightly for nearly two decades, almost 2000 times.

    For a while, Jimmy Kimmel would talk about him on his show and tried to get him as a guest, but he kept getting arrested and couldn't fly out to California.

    In my city, he's known as "James Brown" because he sings James Brown songs and tries to imitate his dance moves in public.

    I have personal encounters with him, but I don't want my post to get lengthy.
