Sounds like something pulled from Snopes.

Facebook, cops, the lottery. A trifecta of stay-the-fark-away-from-me.

This is as bad as somebody is going to give your kids edibles at Halloween.

This reminds me of the time I got in my car without checking the back seat first and nothing happened.

anyone big enough to put tickets under a car tire, you should be afraid of...

might also be easy to spot, like a moving mountain kind of thing.

It's human trafficking. Lehigh Valley housewives fetch hundreds on the market.

There's always lottery tickets under tires in my neighborhood, because the ghetto trash throw 'em in the gutter when they lose.

Maybe: freedom.eagleMAGA on Facebook told me vaccines caused my raging alcoholism, so chess mate, snowflake!

Ooh look, a lotto ticket!

I keep trying to warn my neighbors and the police that our neighborhood has been targeted for a human trafficking sweep because of the colored stickers on the newspaper boxes ... But no one will listen.

So a guy trying to catch a peek at a woman's ass outlined as she bends over?

Has this guy never been to a grocery store?

reminds me of the time i woke up in a hotel room bathtub, covered in ice, with a message written on the mirror that said, "call 911"

fusillade762: Also beware of bananas in your tailpipe.


There is a gas station chain here that gives a free banana when you buy coffee. I said "not gonna fall for the banana in the tailpipe" and the teenaged cashier just looked at me weird. "You know, from Beverly Hills Cop." He never saw it. When I voiced my surprise, loudly, the manager overheard and said "He what?" and I explained I said the banana in the tailpipe line but he just looked at me weird.  Then the manager went off on him for never having seen it. He tried laughing it off but looked quite deflated.

On the other hand, before I saw Rainman, I was really creeped out by my coworker who would randomly say "Definitely not my underwear" throughout the day.

that's the problem in society. brazen terrible people who were raised poorly. throwing lottery tickets in the street along with their empty orange soda bottles and reefer wrappers. demons, every one.

So what's the theoretical M.O. here?  You drive the car a few inches, get out to pick up the tickets, and someone carjacks you while you're getting them?

CSB: there was an old candid camera where they parked a car on top of a $20 and filmed people trying to retrieve it.  One lady pulled up and pushed the car with hers.

Two, TWO, TWO, 2 cases. One and only one involving an interpreted threat. This is something being blown out of proportion and I fully expect to see a fictional scene inspired by it in the future.

I have found actual money in the street (up to a $20 bill) a few times in my life (I'm over 50) so I think it is more than likely that a couple of woman parked over some lottery tickets and did not notice until they got back to their cars.

A long time ago in a far away land I saw some old man in a convenience store parking lot littering his after he scratched them off.  I shamed him into picking them up although he probably just threw them out his car window later on.

I'm less confrontational now, but at the time I felt that telling others it was not acceptable to litter might make a difference.

Alien Robot: [quatrocantos.com image 399x500]


I remember seeing that at one of the area schools when I was heavily involved in a variation of Tae Kwon Do in middle/high school. Reading it, I was thinking, "What kind of awesome person would go around just leaving free LSD everywhere?" I imagined some kind of psychedelic Johnny Appleseed type just going around, spreading it around everywhere for whoever might find it.

Years later, I found out that the main guy who had been running several of the schools had been raping a number of the kids over the years when they went traveling for tournaments and such. They couldn't charge him with anything though because Georgia has a statute of limitations on that. I believe the legislature changed it as a result but I'm not sure. Naturally, he's still in business because he has enough morons who are on his side.

Morals of the story...
- There's actually no LSD Johnny Appleseed
- Don't let your kids go on stuff without a chaperone
- The guy who you're paying $50/mo to for MMA, gymnastics or whatever might actually be diddling kids on the side

When McDonald's was doing their "Babe 2" happy meal promotion I asked if I could get a bacon burger.  The kid just stared at me.  Either he didn't get it or he'd heard that joke a thousand times already.

That's my fetish.

Oh you mean car tailpipe. Nevermind you heard nothing.

This lottery trick for putting people in situations where they are vulnerable to muggers reminds me of another stiry...

I heard once there were people going around claiming to sell good quality suits from their cars.

The trick was that when they got a mark interested, they would suggest to their intended victim that they try on a suit jacket they like to see if it fit them.

When the mark put his arms into the jacket sleeves, he would discover too late that the ends of the sleeves were sewn shut, trapping his hands and rendering him defenceless against being robbed.

I don't know whether this was an urban myth or not, but it was something I heard once.

Also if you see someone at night without their lights on, don't flash yours.  It is a gang initiation, and the first person to flash them, they have to chase down and kill.

But if you see a girl wearing a jelly bracelet, boy do I have some good news for you.

Excellent example of the snarky Fark smart.

When the woman bent over to look at the tickets, she believed she saw a man walking quickly toward her, so she quickly got into her vehicle and drove away, police reported.

there is that word again "believed"
so did she see a man or not ?
"quickly" , so define quick, and how long to unlock the car, put the key in the ignition, lock the doors, (not mentioned), put car in gear and then start to leave....quickly ???
