‘Oddly Specific’: 30 Posts Where Someone Said Something That Is Too Specific

Published 2 years ago

It was almost midnight. Outside, through the window, I can see the houses with their lighting illuminating the cliffs of this mountainous city. The crickets were chirping at a distance. Nearby, I saw the drizzle of rain pass through the faint glow of a lamppost, giving the raindrops a chance to be seen, before they disappear from sight, disappear from the world, turning one with the stream that flows downhill.

When you’re reading novels, you’ll often see sentences beautifully woven like that. Their degree of specificness is what keeps the novel’s world alive and vivid, and such descriptions are useful for us to imagine what it feels like to be in a book. However, something just goes wrong when the descriptions of this kind are taken out of the books. Today, we introduce you to the Oddly Specific subreddit, the home of descriptions that sound unnatural but still get their messages across!
