From secret societies to Neighborhood Watch groups – Here’s a breakdown of some of the most exclusive, offbeat and just plain weird clubs:
Society for Explosives Engineers
This society strives to educate students about careers in mining, specifically mining through use of explosives. There are lots of field tests and explosions involved in the education process.
The Beefsteak Club
This 300 year old British club was also known as the Sublime Society of Beefsteak. Their membership caps off at 24; even the Prince of Wales, the future George IV, had to wait until someone died to become a member. Members gather to eat steak, talk about steak, sing about steak and even wear a funny outfit including a badge proclaiming “Beef and Liberty”.
National Toothpick Holder Collectors’ Society
This 700 member society promotes and supports the collecting of toothpick holders, and does research and articles for their publication the Toothpick Bulletin and participates in collector-related events.
The Quiet Birdmen is a secretive drinking club for pilots known for their boisterous gatherings. Members, called QBs, must be invited to join, and they join for life. Today, the club’s membership, organized into regional “hangars”, is made up primarily of retired airline and military pilots, as well as a few astronauts.
World Association of Ugly People
This club was founded in Italy in 1879 and an organization dedicated to fighting for the recognition of ugly people, in a society that places a high value on physical beauty. The group’s motto is “A person is what he is and not what he looks like”.
Originally started by Italian noblemen and formerly a marriage agency, the club seeks to protect aesthetic biodiversity and combat the media’s portrayal of beauty.
The Ejection Tie Club
To join this club, you’ll have to have survived being fired out of a military plane by ejection seat.
Totally safe, totally normal…and your prize for such a dangerous feat is a special tie you can wear so you can recognize your fellow ejects. Exciting times!
