I don't know if this qualifies as "weird" enough, but it's my understanding that debris from Challenger continued to wash up on shore at the cape for years after the accident, and pieces are still found once in a while after a major storm blows through. An uncle of mine who made his living lobstering off the coast claims to have seen parts of Challenger on the ocean floor (long after the accident), I was never sure if that part was one of his tall tales though. While on the subject of submerged rocket debris, do you happen to know if there are any plans to recover debris from any of the spent S-1C stages?
As for completely weird shuttle stories, this one takes the cake in my book:
Apparently STS-1 was a disaster and killed John Young and Bob Crippen. You thought they were still alive? No, they died 30 years ago and were replaced by replicants after Columbia was destroyed by the Russians... lol.
