    Condoms on the street. I've seen that like a dozen times in my life now and it never ceases to bewilder me. I guess a lot of people took that old Beatles song to heart.*

    Some of you guys need to go outside and explore some more. Toys? that's kind of lame.

    Where the hell is Bryan? I KNOW he has an interesting story.

    I've seen a lot of strange things... I suppose the best one was when I got hit in the face with $20. :thumbs2: 

    I've also seen condoms on the ground, (nasty) sometimes blown up like balloons or filled with... liquid... (-shudder-)

    And one time my friends and I found an odd looking box that we decided to leave alone after it started hissing and twitching. o.0

    ^ creepy!

    I found a crumpled up Digimon card in a Burger King parking lot. I think it was Garurumon.

    There was also the dead, eyeless rabbit head I found just this monday in the shotput circle (I'm in track.)

    Oh, i also found my little brother's coat at this nearby bowling alley we usually go to. Must've forgotten it a couple weeks back, and never thought of it since!

    Once found a double ended Snap On ratchet wrench under the hood of one of our cars. Didn't take too much work, to get it working again.

    Walked into a men's bathroom, saw a hand over a stall while facing a toliet. Did my business, and left. For curiosity, I came back and the two, I believe it was a guy and a girl, then moved to kissing on the floor of that stall (ewww...) It was a handicap stall. You could see them from the bathroom entrance if you move your eyes towards the under the stall door. Again I left, wait 10 mins came back they were gone. This was during the summer at my university, in which once on a crime report people were caught having sex in a bathroom of the most used bathroom on campus.

    It's almost a daily occurrence where I live. :( 

    Also once found porn in the park opposite my old college, circa 1998. Right out in the open too - odd place to crank one out.

    On a slightly less sordid front, the other week I was clearing out a cupboard and found one of G1 Smokescreen's rocket launchers - despite having never owned said TF.

    I was maybe 22, driving back home after a party at a buddy's house around 4 am. Out in the country, I came up on a truck in the ditch, lights on, driver's door open, steam coming from under the hood. Next to the truck was one FUCKED up horse laying on his side barely breathing.

    I had had a few drinks, so I got the hell out of there after not finding any people.

    When I was younger I worked at a landfill (garbage dump) and use to find crazy shit all the time.

    The strangest stuff came from a roll-off bin that was rented to clean out some dead guys house. The guy was really old and had all sorts of old stuff like cases of stubby bottled beer, old boxes of Kraft dinner and other food, A bunch on old letters with 100 year old stamps. I even found an old nudy mag with only topless chicks in it. Looking back I should have kept the stamps and the mag. Could have been worth something...

    That's not strange.

    What is strange is finding them all over your primary school when you are 8 years old.

    Oh, and bongs. Lots of bongs. In my primary school.

    Okay fine, I'll bite.

    The strangest thing I've found is that I keep reading these insipid, jejune threads.

    A half-buried dog skeleton in the park. A suicide note written in Spanish on the bus. A pair of bloody brass knuckles. A photograph of my religious, conservative ex-neighbors engaged in some impressively non-vanilla bondage play.
    I found one in the sink at my high school.

    off the top of my head about a half dozen expended shells in my elementary school (grade 1-6)

    I'm sure there's been other stuff too, but I can't remember it at the moment

    It's a shame one of the j's would be a blank tile and count for nothing.
