Are we sure it wasn't just a crooked real estate developer in a rubber mask?

See? Kids still have interesting finds on their adventures out in the world that don't involve the hypnotic glow of television and mass media in general. :)


I'd just find old, dirty comic books ripped to shiat. :(

The little shiat just goes wandering into other peoples homes,  nice parenting.

Wrong, there was a treasure map in his pocket and a gold watch with coordinates engraved on it.

If you follow the map, turn to page 17.
If you go to the watch's coordinates, turn to page 31.

We were so poor growing up... we didn't have any mummified corpses at our house.

None.

AngryTeacher: Here's the house....

[www.trbimg.com image 750x422]


I think that's kind of cool looking.  I could be happy in a place like that as long as the interior isn't too bad.

When I was a kid on vacation in the back of a station wagon I remember passing all sorts of rundown, ramshackle houses and I used to say "That's my dream house" until my parents got sick of it and told me to STFU because all those houses couldn't be my dream house.  Basically, I was just supposed to pick one I guess.
 
2014-06-18 10:52:05 PM  
At least the kid has one mummy present in his life
 
2014-06-18 10:56:04 PM  
I hope that kid isn't too traumatized by that. On another note, it's really sad that he didn't have any family who missed him :(

My first two thoughts upon seeing that picture:

1) Wow, colorful house. East Cleveland and/or inner city?

-and-

2) Goddamned Chinese Tree of Heaven/Stink Trees growing in the front yard. I friggin' hate those damned things. Almost impossible to get rid of (takes a truly concerted effort, especially since they emit a chemical that prohibits other foliage from growing in the immediate area, thus allowing them to successfully propagate), are technically an invasive weed, and they stink to high hell. They spread like wildfire and grow from a small sproutling into a hearty sapling in less than a month. You can have a sapling in June and a juvenile tree by August.

Evil, evil weeds.

/The Chinese Tree of Heaven is the tree that is referred to in the book "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn"
//burning them is a bad idea, the oil on the leaves is an irritant
///so glad that they haven't reached out here to Pierre yet, but if I find one in the yard, I will attack it with the fury of a thousand suns

Yeah, those Tree of Heaven (ailanthus altissima) are damned pushy alien invaders. They're number three on my list for immediate removal when I'm out taking down non natives. Only good thing about them is they're soft so you don't go through chain loops so fast. Took some down last spring that were almost two feet diameters. Make the face cut and the sap was flowing so heavy you'ed think you cut into a pipe.
 
2014-06-18 11:21:22 PM  
How do you know it's not a native Sumac? PA is choc-a-block with sumacs that don't smell. They are natural sprouting, though, but whateves. Trees beat no trees.

You want stink? Try Ginko berries. Like stale dog shiat, but not as pleasant.

I did stuff like this as a kid. it was scary and exciting! My older brother found a very expensive antique doll in an abandoned house that had burned. We were pretty feral children, on our own a lot. Hey, we lived, well I did.

You know he was shared skitless but, he's going to have a great story for the rest of his life!

He's lucky the mummy didn't elect to stand its ground.
 
2014-06-18 11:58:00 PM  
Listen.  The authorities are calling it a suicide, but I'm not buying it.  I think the guy knew too much, so he went into hiding.  Then, "they" found him and made it appear to be a suicide.  I tell you, now they're going to get away with it.

I assume he'll be the most popular kid in his class (or most popular boy in his group) when the new school year begins.

By senior year it'll get old, though. (The story, not the body. Body's already old.)

Creepy. I spent a year looking thru Hud houses and repos for sale, most of which weren't locked.
Lot's of stuff, but nothing like that.

I was thinking the same thing, either this kid will be scarred for life, or he'll have a great story to tell and become a 'cool' kid.

Thanks for the _A Tree Grows in Brooklyn_ trivia! So, is this tree native or an invasive species? For purposes of the book either answer could be made to work I suppose.

Did the kid then meet the woman he would later marry, fall through the attic floorboards, and break his ar?

And by finding, I mean "crushed by".
