Of all things posted, this would have freaked me the most

DreamyAltarBoy: I found a .25cal auto when I was 9yrs old.


I suspect that was a semi-auto. Learn the right terminology. An automatic will fire repeatedly as long as it doesn't jam, and there is ammo, and you hold the trigger. A semi-auto feeds only one shot per trigger pull.

I was with the 1st Armored Division. When we convoyed from Kuwait to Baghdad I saw a hellfire missle still in the crate on the side of the road.

Ive found a fake fireplace, complete with fake logs that were fake burned

I once tossed out a toaster oven, to confuse/annoy/surprise a friend who wqs following me

i once unfolded 6000 feet of mylar punch tape at 60 mph, i dont know how much stayed together

when i was in college i collected baseball caps from the side of the road... by the time i graduated i had 24, lost them all in the move home.

ive picked up and used loads of "trashure" from the side road, admittedly it wasnt "abandoned" but more discarded. this includes the very computer and monitor im using right now to post this. loads of office equipment, tv's, tools, furniture, rugs, antique toys, my latest find is a dyson vacuum.

Satan's Bunny Slippers: 2- 4 drawer file cabinets


It wasn't exactly on the side of the road, more at a sort of a pullout, but there were a bunch of 4-drawer cabinets. A couple of drawers were hanging open, showing that they were full of files. It turned out that they were old medical records (actually, if I remember correctly, dental records) -- complete with SSNs. It was a different time, but even then I thought that was pretty disturbing.

A guy butchering the Deer he had just hit with his truck.

A plane

A boat

A porn being filmed

An 18 wheeler rolling throwing cans of shredded crab and those ice cream with the wooden spoon thing.

A car that had just hit an 18 wheeler

A car that had just been run over by a Tow truck

/I drove tow truck at night for 2.5 years and I commute 65 miles each way for work now.

A CD of a live concert of the Blues Travelers.  At the time they were huge and I thought wow this must be great!  It was one of the worst CD's I had ever heard.  A week later I continued its journey and threw it out my window.

Rick-mind-if-I-call-you-Dick: A grammatical error


The strangest thing I seen abandoned on the side of the road was subtard's grammar.

/you beat me to it, damnit

I'm still trying to figure out why I only see a single shoe in the side of the road. Was a one-legged homeless person's day made? Where is the other shoe?

Years ago I was geocashing, and I found a small cashe near the Edwards AFB exit along highway 58 in California.  The cashe was at the end of a dead end road, and when I pulled up, I noticed something strange.  There were literally hundreds of pairs of panties scattered all over the road.  A reflector next to the road had about 20 pairs hung around it.  They were not granny panties either.  They all were rather skimpy, and mostly g-strings.  The only thing I could think was this was the place either the local high school students went to to 'park' or there was some kind of initiation going on with the E1 girls at Edwards.

A trail about 2 miles long that started with shoes and socks, then a pair of shorts, then panties (you could see brown stains on them), then a shirt, then a bra, then sunglasses, then a ball cap.  5 miles down the road was an ambulance and a police car tending to a naked woman with severe road rash on her shoulder and front.  Another couple miles down the road was a roadblock.  Apparently, the guy slipped her some Ecstasy , had some "fun" with her, then pushed her out going 70 down the highway.

I've also seen a couple of cars posed, one on top of the other, like they were trying to make baby cars, complete with the exhaust pipe bent to look like a phallus going into the trunk.

A banana wrapped in aluminum foil.

Also, once, an ancient, splintery baseball bat, left leaning against a lightpost.

/left the banana, still have the bat

Yeah, quick phone post while at work, thinking slow and typing fast. The first thing my 11yr. old brother does is pick it up and pull the trigger. Damn glad it wasn't loaded.

I like your handle, hate Manwich though.

Maul555: Harry Freakstorm: A semi truck slid off the southbound side of the interstate and split open in the snow. There must have been hundreds of cans of Budweiser sitting in the snow after the pulled the semi and the trailer away. I don't really think anyone handling the cleanup thought the beer would stay around. I saw beer on the way up to Champaign on the northbound side of I-57. About two hours later, when I was heading south, the place had been picked clean. Lots of tire marks and footprints in the snow. It was salvagers because I know the cleanup people like to travel in a single file to hide their numbers.

da fuq?


???WTF How can you not get a Sand People reference?!?

MagicBoris: ChipNASA: Wow.....Free Cat didn't even make it an hour.

Well, it was FREE! That's a great deal no one could afford to miss!


(seriously though, do people actually find such a thing offensive?)


Well we do have a weekly "Caturday" here on Fark...

Clicky for location

When I was growing up, in Hamden, CT. there was a parking lot with cars half buried in the asphalt.

Um, has Stephen King ever written about your town? Because, damn...

Not terribly strange, but amusing: a very small tricycle at the side of a busy L.A. freeway. What made it funny is that it was parked perfectly on the shoulder, as if a toddler had a breakdown. Would have been funnier if the CHP yellow-tagged it.

Honestly... a road.

Where I grew up there was a zig-zag in US45 south of town, this long beautiful banked curve about 35° angle.  Was a fun place because it dead-ended at the interstate.  https://maps.google.com/maps?q=pesotum,+IL&hl=en&ll=39.906798,-88.289 2 98&spn=0.00674,0.013765&sll=27.698638,-83.804601&sspn=15.894185,28.190 918&hnear=Pesotum,+Champaign,+Illinois&t=h&z=17

It just got cut in half at the interstate and instead of putting a bridge there, they re-routed US45 a little.  It was, other than the high bank, a safe place to go on dirt bikes and do fast runs in cars.

Going up US 67 from Little Rock to Poplar Bluff is a stretch of road that runs parallel to the main road for about 30-40 miles.  There's also a stretch about 5 miles long from Olney, IL to Flora, complete with bridge.  Every time I pass them, I wonder why it was decided that those roads were replaced with a new road not even 20 feet away.
