    I found a shopping cart in a riverbed. Also found a sofa in the woods, a bike, a dear skull, and a paintball mask.

    That thing in the back of mom's old dresser drawer. As soon as I figured it out I went "Ew man" and dropped it.
    That's what I get for snooping through all my parents shit as a kid

    While I was still living back in Israel, the way I had to take from work to the central bus station of Tel-Aviv, crossed via the slimy part of South Tel-Aviv (full of illegal immigrants). Anyway, one night we had to pull over time in the office and I found myself walking towards the central bus station at 11:30 pm. On one of the streets I see something meaty on the ground, as I approached it I saw that it was a severed skinless goat's head. I Jumped! The thing still had the eye balls attached to it and it was looking right straight at me.... Creepy.

    I don't want to be an asshole or anything but I once found a dead body washed up on the beach. I was on my way surf fishing and happened to see a large bulk of something off in the distance near the water's edge. At first I thought it was a pile of kelp that had washed up. Not too uncommon. I joked about it might being a dead body. Imagine how shitty I felt when I got closer to investigate and discovered it to be a dead body. The next few hours were interesting to say the least. I flagged down Border Patrol and explained to them what I had found. They in turn called the Sheriffs Department. The Deputy then showed up and took my statement. Then after that the homicide team showed up... it was a pretty interesting process..

    Five years ago I found a full six-pack of Miller Genuine Draft that was still in a grocery bag inside of a dumpster.

    I found two 12-pack of Coke sitting in a grocery cart at a Albertson's parking lot.

    just some dead things, a huge hermit crab on the beach once (i live on the southern area of Australia so that little guy shouldnt been there), and when i was still in high school during clean Australia day, i found a tire with a plastic bag underneath. only it turns out it was someones porn stash. sadly a flood had gone though so opening them was abit of a problem, plus the videos would have been ruined too.

    A worker at Wal-Mart had the best of me. LMAO!

    Then the Law & Order: Criminal Intent theme song starts playing, right?

    That must have been scary.

    --

    Anyways. I've found my share of odd things, but once on my way to school last year (grade eight), I saw yellow police tape and the entrance to the school field that I usually take was blocked off from the bridge forward. Later that day there was an announcement about a man who was lying on the ground in the area of the creek, who was gasping for air.

    Another time, I didn't really find anything...My brother, a few friends and I were running last summer. There is a police car that drives up to a family playing in the baseball diamond. They were asked something, but I didn't hear. My friend did, though. They were asking if there was a sighting of a man wielding an axe. As if it weren't freaky enough, there were a lot of police cars patrolling after that.

    One time I found a Metroid Prime: Hunters DS cart on the ground when I was in grade five. It was pretty mangled, so I gave it to my friend as a collector's item.

    Haha, I found a really weird thing in grade four. On my way back from school, I found out that a cat that I've been walking to school and from school with had no home. We rescued him and got a new brother as well as a new friend! He was only about one years old, and his previous owners apparently threw him outside. Those assmongers, if I ever find them, I'm kicking their asses. Anyways, right now he's sleeping.

    Yeah it was pretty scary. It was sad more than anything. The body was that of a 8 yearold boy who had drowned on the other side of the border.

    As to the homicide team.... It was strange seeing how close it was to something you'd see on TV. They all show up one or two at a time. Most of the detectives are wearing suits and sunglasses while a couple others were all scuffy looking as if they had been working an undercover case.

    I found a police siren under the hood of my 79 Buick Le Sabre when I was in High School.

    And it went off. In the parking lot. Before school. On Friday the 13th. And I couldn't turn it off.

    Once when I was cleaning a stream that ran thru my high school grounds with my school club and we found a length of chain, a shopping cart, several tires, and in some near by woods that we also cleaned skunked beer.

    Who is the person on here who found someone filming a Batman/Robin porno behind their apartment building?

    I remember they made a thread and even posted pictures of it. Well, pictures that didn't break board rules. Thank God.

    well my area seems to be flooded with strange vehicles, number two was found today (still sadly no pics :(  )

    it was an old caddillac with the big tires (that new style which is quite ugly) but it was painted up as a doublemint gum wrapper, even had a frickin barcode on the side :lolol 

    it was awesome
