Sybarite: It's not at all uncommon, but I'm always puzzled by where that one shoe comes from, especially when it still appears to be in pretty good shape.

Bunkyb123: A black bull that was so farking big you would have called him Bullzilla, stopped a took a picture but it lost the perspective he just looked like any old cow sitting in a field. This freaking monster was so big he could have made out with an Elephant. He was so big that he could have climbed Empire State Building and pawed at biplanes. He was even bigger than YOUR MOM.
crzybtch: A truck with an absolutely gigantic mytery thing on it...turned out to be one blade of a wind power generator....lots of wind farms in the thumb part of Michigan these days. You cannot imagine how big one blade it till you drive by one at ground level.
Rick-mind-if-I-call-you-Dick: A grammatical error
mjones73: A toilet sitting on the median in Baltimore, no, I didn't take it like someone's disturbed lab partner.
Summer Glau's Love Slave: Deflated and ripped up hot air balloon complete with basket.The basket was in the ditch; the rest of it all over the power lines./Never did find out where the pilot was.
nytmare: This large wad of nylon string tangled with debris and rotting animal parts including what looks like a deer leg[sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net image 720x540]
OlDood: "...you seen...", "I seen", "they seen".Very commonly spoken that way in Minnesota and Wisconsin, etc. Still annoys the sheets outa' me and I now live in Arkansas where it is state law to use an apostrophe to make a word plural.(says a former Duluthian)
Tonto's Expanding Headband: On yesterday's bike ride I saw a single woman's high heel shoe.
Walker: Sybarite: It's not at all uncommon, but I'm always puzzled by where that one shoe comes from, especially when it still appears to be in pretty good shape.Passenger side person has one foot hanging out window while they are sleeping and the shoe falls off. Not noticed until they wake up and the driver isn't going all the way back 100 miles to get it.
boredofedu: boredofedu: We used to have an employee that was always picking up junk from the side of the road. One day he found a pair of coveralls that somebody had lost the entire contents of their colon in. It also had one of the patches with a guys name on it. That guy came into our parts store a few days later and our employee asked him if he wanted his coveralls back, he'd found them on the side of the road all poo'ed up. The guy just turned around and left..Why would he even touch it? Did he loose his sense of smell and he got too close? That's a 'burn it with fire' find.He used a stick to put them in the back of his pick-up. He said he recognized who's they were because the guy had been in the store that day with those coveralls on. And I did say he USED to be an employee, there are reasons why he's not here any more...

Not noticed until they wake up and the driver isn't going all the way back 100 miles to get it.Too many instances of solitary roadside footware for this to be the explanation. Also, SRF appears in all seasons. I've often seen SRF on top of snow.The other frequent guess is "accidents, and the EMT cut the shoe of the victim's foot for some medical reason." But the shoes are usually intact, and there is rarely another indication of an accident nearby or another location that the shoe could have rolled from.I once rounded a curve near on Rt 18 by Rutgers and came upon a bizarre sight: the entire road was strewn with shoes. Whoever was in charge of randomly distributing shoes across all the roads in America must have hit a bump and his stock of SRF fodder bounced off the back of his truck.
TheLastFrontiersman: A live Indian. Thought it was a dead body, and went back to investigate (middle of the night, 10 miles outside of Pocatello, ID), and he was alive and tripping. His cousin Wilfred was nearby, crawling around a field on his hands and knees.\csb
