Cat has the right to be seen on the Internet!
Cat was born a cat!
Cat has been oppressed for too long on Fark!

We were doing adopt a highway for the science club I was a part of in college, and one of the girls in the club who was the most naive person I've ever met in my life came across a 14" floppy sparkly blue dong.... She picked it up with her bare hands and was just whipping it around in the air. You never pick up a dong bare handed on the side of a road....

A not-quite abandoned anti-abortion vehicle. At least, I think it was anti-abortion...

Either way, that was one less Religious-Nutjobmobile on the road for the time being.

I'm a truck driver, so here is my top 10.

1. Semi Truck hanging off an overpass.
2. A bear dragging a deer carcass.
3. A baby elk that walked up to me and started nuzzling my back while I was taking a roadside pee at 2am in Flagstaff.
4. A broken dog carrier. (Romney vacation gone wrong?)
5. 10 miles of pepsi bottles.
6, 25 tonnes of peas.
7. A dresser.
8. An EZ-Boy that blew in a dozen bits when my co-driver hit it.
9. A hover round.
10. A little old black lady that had walk 2 miles in the Georgia heat. (I gave her a lift to the next service station and made sure she would be OK.)

Down the street from where I used to live were the American Airlines training center, one of their reservations call centers, and an air traffic control building. The streets around the perimeter of this complex are completely littered with those mini liquor bottles that you get on the airplane.

A cop with a radar gun.

big pig peaches: I once saw a baby carrier upside down on the side if the highway. I did stop and check. It was empty.

My aunt sends me an email about this every few months. She says that if you see one it's because it's National Gang Initiation Week and if you get out of the car you will be dragged into the woods, raped, killed, and then raped some more.

I gave up on trying to get her to use Snopes.

Not really abandoned, but it makes me happy:

Tonto's Expanding Headband: 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.

It seems like it's almost always a sneaker or work boot. On yesterday's bike ride I saw a single woman's high heel shoe. It appeared to be in good shape.

On another ride several months ago, I came over a hill and there was a Chevy Suburban on it's side off the side of the road. There was a Mexican guy standing in the road talking on his phone. When I rode past the same spot about an hour later there were cops and a tow truck. As I rode past one of the cops talking to the Mexican dude I heard the cop say something like "No, this ID is not valid."

I guess the Suburban doesn't really count as abandoned.

Yeah one time on 101N in California, near San Francisco, I saw a burning mattress on the side of the road. 101 is an ugly, billboard-ridden freeway, especially compared to 280, which also runs up the SF peninsula. So from then on I describe 101 as a "burning mattress" kind of freeway, whereas 280 is more of a "state flower" kind of freeway.

Tonto's Expanding Headband: My apologies - I apparently quoted your post in error. Meant to quote the one above it:

Loving Teacher:

One halloween with my first/wierdest college girl friend and her other boyfriend driving to a halloween party we saw burning matress by the side of the road and considered it a good sign for the evening's festivities, it was.

A drum kit with drummer. He used to go just outside of town so he could practice without annoying the neighbors.

A sand pit may not be roadside (previous post), but having lived in Atlanta for many years, I knew the Varsity (drive-in) red-logo paper cups because they were very popular in Atlanta and Athens, GA.
Walking along the beach in Santa Monica, Cal. in 1978, rolling right at the waters edge was a Varsity cup with not a wrinkle.  It had the same logo, and said Atlanta and Athens. I saw a cat leaving the scene. (I made up the cat bit.)

yet_another_wumpus: 1. Plenty of abandoned cars due to 3" of snow in Tulsa, OK. One hundred miles from the nearest hill.

2. One SUV with a tree growing out of the back seat. No blood, despite the fact that there isn't a chance that anyone could survive in any of the passenger seats (who carries a passenger in rush hour). Had previous thought "wrapped around a tree" was just and expression and that SUVs were fairly sturdy.

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

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..

I couldn't be happier to not work where you work

It's also where I left my second wife. Did one of you pick her up? ROFLMAO if you did.

She scrubs up nice....

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.

You have truly lived in some awful places
