Greenville Oddities

45 posts in this topic

Thought it would be great to have a thread to post the odd and weird things in Greenville.

Here is one I don't understand.

This exercise bicycle has been in the parking lot at Main and Broad for some time and every few nights when I walk by, someone will be riding it. Thursday night there was a guy riding it while he was people watching all the activity on Main. He was really working it.......you would have thought he was George Hincapie. :lol: What gives with this and why is it in the middle of a parking lot?

I really like this thread! I'm going to be on the lookout for some oddities.

I'm not sure about this bike though...

That stationary bike is STRANGE! What's even more strange is that you have seen someone exercising on it! You should have walked right up to them and asked if they were having a good workout! :lol:

That guy owns the property and decided to kill two birds with one stone: collect parking fees and get a workout at the same time. Strange, but that's why it's awesome!

There are two bikes there now, and I have seen a person on one of them. ^_^

It will be nice to see that vacant lot (eyesore) developed into an important new building for downtown.

OK, not a Greenville oddity here, but definitely a South Carolina oddity. A company in SC charged the Pentagon alomst one million dollars to ship two 19 cent washers to an Army base. What's even crazier, the Pentagon paid it!!! We have some real bright people running this country, real bright! :shades:

^^^ Well you know they had to charter the flight to get the washers from DC to the Army Base. Chartered flights aren't cheap. :P

This one has to go in the oddity thread because it is so absurd. The Southern Connector has a list of 13 people who have failed to pay tolls (run through the toll booths) a combined 600 times! That averages to more than 46 times per person! If I ran a toll booth even one time, I'd be looking over my shoulder for blue lights for the rest of my life. :lol: This is truely absurd! These people are criminals....arrest them already!

Not an oddity, but just funny. Someone had good aim with athletic shoes. They have been hanging from a stoplight wire at Garlington and Woodruff for several weeks now. Can you imagine being 9 years old again and knowing they were your shoes and you had the best shot of all your friends.....laughing everytime your mom drove through this intersection......having that silly 9 year old pride of accomplishment. :P:lol:

Drugs maybe......but the Crips? Not sure when they got interested in establishing a territory that includes Whole Foods, J.Jill, PF Changs, Talbots, Ann Taylor.......must be some preppy Crips. :lol:

Anybody have any new info about this?

How does a Maserati travel over 500 feet off the road, get airborne and plow into the back of a house and come out the front??? Was this guy driving, the upscale cousin to Bo & Luke Duke?? Weird. It's awful that a man died in his home this way. I'd really like to know more. Anyone know anything additional?

This case gets more strange. One week later, and the driver John Ludwig has not been charged with anything.....not even a ticket. A 62 year man is dead, a house severly damaged and Maserati is totaled, yet the "investigation" goes on. A group of local citizens have started a facebook page: "Indict John Ludwig Now".

^ Agreed. Kudos to WYFF. They are definitely keeping the public up to date on this. If there isn't some kind of charge within the coming week, I'm sure the public outcry will grow very loud. It should.
