recently when im out walking with my mum i have been finding stuff on the street so i was wondering what things yous have ever found (i dont mean super gross stuff like dogpoo and litter)

in the past week i found 5pence,50pence,a key(sat it on top of this box just beside where i found it and its still there!!) an unscratched £10 scratch card (i dunno if it was real or not but i scratched it and won nothing) and a sealed mcdonalds yellow furby happy meal toy (which is currently now hanging on our "money tree" - alternative chrisstmas tree its a plastic jewellery tree with bags of chocolate coins hung on it!!)

so yep!! you ever found anything good or weird? if you found money would you keep it? or leave it? or give it to poluce station? i found £10 once and donated it to charity!

Hm! Let's see...

I suppose the most interesting (or silly) thing I've found was not too long ago. Maybe half a year? I found one of those old, old "Y2K Recovery" floppy disks. Brought back some fun memories of how bent out of shape people got over that, but most of what I've found otherwise is pretty bland. ):

I've found screws, washers (the kinds you use with screws), random bits of plastic, pieces of glass, and I used to pick all of this stuff up.

Reviving this thread because it's actually an interesting topic!

I find a lot of coins on the floor, but cooler things I've found on the floor include knives, animal bones, and even a part of the inside of a car's catalytic converter. Weird right?

When I was little, my grandma would always take me on walks and she’d bring a little bag with her so that she could carry all the random things I would pick up off the street around the neighborhood! Feathers, leaves, and cool shaped rocks were my favorites, bit I would actually end up finding change quite often as well. One time, someone had superglue day like $5 worth of quarters to the sidewalk in front of their house so that they could watch all the little kids sit there and try to pry them from the concrete. Mean, but kind of funny to look back on !

Woah this topic is old, I can't even remember starting it! The other day I seen a random pair of good looking boots abandoned in the middle of the street and an upsidedown ironing board!

Hey, that sounds pretty cool you two.

Funny because I just found a brand new set of baby clothes on the ground with tags and a receipt and all. Probably a gift that flew out of someone's car. I returned it at the store and got 17 bucks for it though!smile_devil.gif

I can't remember things I found on the street, but is this close enough? When I was much younger, I found a Mcdonald's Neopet plushie in a gas station parking lot. I still have it... somewhere.

I find lots of jewelry, like the cheap stuff, but I keep it in my little misc box. I found a dollar the other day and gave it to the cafe tip jar.

I leave coins all over the place a lot, its fun to think of some kid getting it or someone who needs a few extra bits of money.

My favorite thing to leave is a thank you doodle at restaurants, I used to work with food and I got one once, inspired me to keep doing it.

I don't know why, but I constantly find money on the street in my dreams. Sometimes, it's a $5 bill, but a lot of the time, the street will just be covered in coins, and I'll collect as many as I can.

...And then I wake up. smile_sad.gif

In real life, I recently found a dollar while on a walk, and a few days before that I found a quarter. I haven't found too many interesting things. I found a couple nice baby toys, haha. My mom found a Chinese fan on one of her walks and gave it to me when I was a kid. I had that for a really long time.

@Chapstick Right on! I've left a doodle before, too. Honestly, I'm sure that makes some people's days, maybe even more so than a tip.

Happy Holidays

I have a number of those plushie microbes, and one day in a parking lot (okay, to be fair, it was the Microbiology building parking lot), I found the pink stuffed mono.

Looks like this:

Here is the node, you who hate change and fear revolution. Keep these two squatting men apart; make them hate, fear, suspect each other. Here is the anlage of the thing you fear. This is the zygote. For here "I have lost my land" is changed; a cell is split and from its splitting grows the thing you hate—"We lost our land." The danger is here, for two men are not as lonely and perplexed as one. And from this first "we" there grows a still more dangerous thing: "I have a little food" plus "I have none." If from this problem the sum is "We have a little food," the thing is on its way, the movement has direction.

Heck, that thing is creepy! What a weird thing to find in the street. And why would anyone want a stuffed mono? Mustve been thrown out of a cat window by a terrified kid smile_laugh.gif

@Splash

a chicken once.. (I wonder why it was crossing the street? LOL)

a dead bird, but it was funny because it was spread out with wings and legs like you see in cartoons with the tire mark across their back!

@Splash I've found everything from money to abandoned Halloween costumes after our annual uptown block party. Have also found a chunk of iron pyrite all sparkly. And I collet heart shaped rocks, which are hard to find, but that's what makes them special - the infrequency and their meaning to me.

Not sure if this counts, but a couple of days ago I saw a tortoise on my side walk. It was really weird and random, because I don't live anywhere near their habitat, so someone must have left him there. A neighbour saw him too and decided to take him and look for his owner. I had to leave, so I have no idea what happened next... smile_unsure.gif

If in a building counts, I was at the airport once, and me and my Dad were sitting down, and I found a dollar bill, and a Barbie doll.

I work at an environmental center that has a park and a riverbank out back. I do weekly cleanups for rubbish and such, and find some interesting things. Once i found a black plastic bag that held something in it. I opened it up and it was a whole coconut, which is weird, considering that I live in suburban New York. Another time, I found a total of 17 condoms (used) in one day, lying about the riverbank. That was really disgusting, but I found it to be interesting, I suppose.

If you feel you do not belong in this world, it is because you were born to create a new one.

A few months ago I found a 20 dollar bill while walking my dog. Best day of my life right there.

I found an old cellphone on my street once. It was broken and it didn’t have a battery. I believe it is still there.

I've found $20 before when I was a kid. Usually I just find change everywhere. One night I picked up 63 pennies out of the road smile_yawn.gif It was like someone threw all their change out the window.

OH! While walking around the local lake I've found lots of things. Usually cool pieces of beach glass, but once I found a Vegeta action figure from DBZ. During a really bad drought I found an arrowhead in the dried up lake bed.

Weirdest thing I found was a waterlogged Harlequin romance novel from the '80s, just chilling in a puddle on the sidewalk.

Coolest thing I found was a lobster beanie baby.
