Strange Things

  1. noun The possibly unpredictable behaviour of doing something which MUD is not explicitly programmed to handle, eg. Q: "What will happen if I give the disc to the vampire?" A: "Strange Things". The person using the phrase in this example has no idea what will happen, but thinks it should be interesting.
  2. noun Something (usually entertaining or useful) which the person using the phrase knows will happen when you perform a certain action, but which he or she is not prepared to tell you outright because that would spoil your fun. See arch (sense 2).
