Twitter Users Ponder Their Most Outlandish Personal Stories

I have a friend who has a very eccentric mate who shall remain nameless in this story. Recently, this friend told me a story about his mate that made me have a very specific reaction. The story goes that this mate, whose academic background is insect sex—and which included a PhD project that involved hundreds of hours of insect sex footage—recently had a bit of trouble with international law. As my friend tells it, he heard this story from another friend of his—a friend who also knows his eccentric mate. So this other friend tells my friend that he recently struck up a conversation with someone in the pub who happened to have a pretty brutal-looking scar on his finger. As the night went on, this new person explained the scar, and it turned out to have been sustained in a sword duel. A sword duel with my friend’s eccentric insect sex mate. The same mate who, my friend also learned from his friend who bumped into sword scar guy, had recently been detained by law enforcement for trying to cross the border from Transnistria—officially known as the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic—to Gagauzia—officially known as the Autonomous Territorial Unit of Gagauzia, two breakaway micro states that aren’t recognised by any country. This eccentric character had been detained because apparently you are not allowed to enter either of those territories as a US citizen, and he happened to be carrying a US passport on him at the time. A nasty predicament, you might think, except that ‘a call to the presidential palace and a few hours translating led to his release.’
