THespos on What is the weirdest thing you have seen at someone's house that they thought was completely normal? -
"I wouldn't say dirty. From what I remember, it pretty much stayed in the house. They called it "Rocky," and the only other story I remember about it was one time when the dad sat down without looking and Rocky bit him in the ass. It was a fairly normal family, they just had a raccoon where most people might have a cat or dog." - Tom Hespos
THespos on What is the weirdest thing you have seen at someone's house that they thought was completely normal? -
"A pet raccoon. That had free roam of the entire house. I was friends with twins growing up, and their dad owned his own construction business. While demolishing a house, he accidentally killed a mama raccoon and ended up taking her baby home to the family to keep as a pet. I did not know this when I visited their house once, and saw the thing emerge from a laundry basket in the hallway, and I completely freaked out. The two brothers were trying to figure out why I was reacting that way. I'm still good friends with them to this day - this incident occurred in the mid-80s." - Tom Hespos
THespos on Truckers of reddit: what is the scariest thing you have heard over the CB radio? -
"Not a trucker, but I have a CB in my Jeep so I can communicate with my 4WD club on trail rides. On the way to a trail ride in PA, right after I got my CB, I was scanning through channels and came across a preacher type who was talking quite animatedly about the End of Times. Not your run-of-the-mill Book of Revelation kind of stuff, but calling out specific groups and behaviors and talking about how and why the Lord would strike them down. As I recall, he seemed to have an unhealthy fixation on Hillary Clinton, but also on non-heterosexuals. The Lord was going to strike us all down for not rising up against man laying with man and all that crapola. On my way back from the trail ride, I picked it up again and it totally creeped me out thinking about how much time this weirdo spent broadcasting warnings about the Apocalypse to anyone listening." - Tom Hespos

THespos on What Your favorite piece of music trivia? -
"* Eddie Van Halen played the guitar solo on Michael Jackson's "Beat It." "Thriller" kept "1984" out of the #1 album slot. Eddie may have screwed himself a bit, but he did play on both the #1 and #2 albums that year. * Ronnie James Dio is credited with inventing the devil horns hand sign familiar to all metalheads. * Van Halen started the ball rolling on ridiculous performance contract riders, by stipulating that no brown M&Ms should be served backstage. While most thought of this as a symbol of rockstar excess, David Lee Roth once explained that the rider was buried deep in contracts, so that if dishes of M&Ms showed up without the brown ones, Van Halen could rest assured that people were actually reading the technical requirements for their shows. On the other hand, seeing a brown M&M meant the tech had to be scrutinized line by line." - Tom Hespos
