I was sitting in bed last night. It was late, like 1:30 am. I was reading. I glanced out the window and--I kid you not--the sky lit up. Only very briefly, slightly longer than a lightning flash. But it wasn't lightning. The first flash was bright yellow, followed immediately by red. I didn't hear any sound. This sufficiently creeped me out. I don't know, maybe I was seeing things. It was pretty late. But I'm pretty sure I saw those two flashes, yellow, red, in quick succession.
On a lighter note, check out this hilarious Flash movie. (Yes, the characters are all inanimate objects with clocks for faces. If you've visited Newgrounds a lot, you'll understand.)
