Remarkable?  You have to pay six bucks to park on top of that warship if you want to eat at Willy G's!

Nah, that's in Muhlenberg County. Sadly though, Mr. Peabody's coal train has hauled it away.

Gosh that 2nd one is a hell of a tongue twister. I'm glad Jesus came along so we could get easier names like Dave and Matt. Like calling my friend and "Hey Gethsemane do ya wanna come over and play Xbox?" or "Wassup Onesiphoreous? Wanna go grab a brewski?"

Certainly there are. Shoes, ships, sealing wax, cabbages... I could go on and on. We might even find answers to why the sea is boiling hot, or whether pigs have wings.

A lot of history is boring. No need to catalog every single burned down building or to dig up every single stone arrowhead.

I once found 4 Rolexes in the glove box of a U-haul truck. Like a dumbass I turned them in when I took it back.

One time, in my high school's parking lot, a group of us kids found a bunch of bras.

Seemed they belonged to the dance team. Someone sneaked into the locker room while those girls were practicing, and stole their bras. Placed them prominently in the parking lot as a prank, apparently.

Those chicks were embarrassed as hell. I kind of enjoyed watching their reaction.

I found a bag of weed in a parking lot once.

It was pretty shiatty weed and there wasn't very much of it either.

The cradle of Canadian democracy became a parking lot, and where once sat members of parliament now sat Honda Civics.

Seems like a valid observation.

Crewmannumber6: I once found 4 Rolexes in the glove box of a U-haul truck. Like a dumbass I turned them in when I took it back.


If real, they were worth well over $10,000. You would have been under close scrutiny as the next person with that truck. I'm sure they've got unique serial numbers and I bet a reputable jeweler would check that when a potential buyer verified the watch authenticity.

Good on you for doing the right thing, but you could have been caught and punished pretty easily. You're not a dumbass, you're just keeping a tight butthole.
