Saturday I found a zippo lighter lying on a table at my work...it was from last night and it's out of fluid so filled it and bueno it's working. Sorry that was kind of the highlight of my weekend. So it got me thinking, has anyone's trash ever been your treasure?

You my friend are a genious, where did you just come up with that comeback. I have never thought of a better thing than to post a "Your mom" bit.

By the way she died of cancer when I was 6, so thank you even more.

I snapped my high E once and sliced my finger open, so I can only assume snapping the low E would put me into a coma or something.

An old stereo filled with some nice CD's. A couple of tab books someone threw away. One time I found one of those revolvers they use for races. The one that only loads blanks (cant fire the chamber is blocked) so just makes a really ****ing big bang. That's fun for pranks!

You can't take a joke, can you?

It was said for fun. I meant to be mocking the "your mom" jokes in a way, since they haven't been used in a long time. It was supposed to be funny and you, my friend, ruined it.

But really? I'm very sorry to hear that, and that wasn't sarcasm, I'm actually sympathizing.

My greatest apologies.

I pulled a beach towel out of a bay in the lake. I cleaned it, dried it and it was like brand new. No holes, no stains, no funky smell. I still use it today.

I found a techno CD called Hit the Decks III when I was walking home from school once. It was OK.

My friend found a plastic toy horse that had a penis and balls.

I also found a bag of weed in a parking lot when I went to the park with my brother, but I didn't really wanna smoke it... If I remember right, it was all yellow and dried up.

Haha, no worries man, I thought you were ridiculing me for using the "your mom" joke because your mom was actually dead. Sorry man, hahaha.

And it's cool, haha..

Man, I wish there was a way to express sarcasm over the internet, I use it SO much in my daily speaking and it sucks that it can't be addressed over text online.

It's quite depressing.

I found a rusty needle in an alleyway a few years ago.


Still use it to this day.


EDIT: I've been feeling sick recently, I'm a pretty healthy guy, aside from some recreational drug use, anyone know what's up?

I find pens, rulers, eraser, sharpeners. I didn't actually buy any of my stationery for school.

Onc found some Old Classical Guitar in a dumpster. It was actually ok, now that I fingerpick a lot, I really wish I hadn't smashed it Pete Townshend style...

I found a perfectly fine chair by the dumpster a few years ago.

I don't know what they were thinking when they threw it away. I still have it, and it's the comfiest motherf*cking chair ever.

I found an old school chair, and a watermelon. I threw the watermelon off a building, i sit on the chair.

I once found an old electric guitar that was hand made, I think, in a building that was gonna be torn down. Took off the stickers and replaced the strings and it is quite awesome.
#27
I found a CD copy of Rage Against The Machine "Evil Empire" in a dumpster about 6-7 years ago. My friends and I sometimes dig through the dumpsters at Gamestop in hopes of damaged/defective games and consoles, though all we ever find is display boxes and old shelves.

Loudspeakers and old boomboxes.

I live in Switzerland, and people throw stuff out just because it's old, even if it still works perfectly. With a bit of luck, you could assemble a whole computer from what you found at the dump. It might even run XP. Not that I've tried.
#29
I always get a bit freaked out when people throw out stuff like awesome chairs. If there is nothing wrong with it, then there's gotta be some reason its been trashed. Maybe its cursed..... or "stained"......

Or maybe their just filthy rich.

a portable (barely) radio walkman from the 70s or 80s that was in our cupboard somewhere, it was pretty good, could record to casettes, so I used it to get Nights With Alice Cooper, since the radio station moved it to god knows what hour of the morning.

I've found like 10 mountain bikes that I used for parts for the two bikes I actually use, chairs, records, an old ass cassette recording system that was probably worth a good amount of money until I took a bat to it, cassatte tapes, a leaf blower, my friend found a working old ass HP with Windows XP, he also found a lava lamp.

Stuff like that, me and a couple friends used to look through dumpsters at my friend's old apartment complex.

My house? My parents bought it 13 years ago when it was just 4 walls. Right now it's a castle.
