So my iPod fell into a (dry) storm drain last night, and I was wondering if anyone could give me tips for getting it out. I'm having a hard time finding it right now, I heard it fall and hit the bottom, but it was really dark, so I couldn't see it. I spent a half hour feeling around the bottom with a golf club, but no luck. Any suggestions?

Are those drains you see on american tv? Just keep trying with a golf club or something more suited to picking it up...

Maybe Tiger Woods can get it out for you?

Nah, he's only good at getting things into holes.
And he plays a bit of golf too.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

This.

You can send him on a recon mission with a small camera strapped to his back.


Also,I'd equip him with hellfire missiles and a front mounted chain gun just in case he runs into rats or something.

Don't go down there! Clowns live in storm drains! I saw it in a documentary once.


Can't you open the drain or something?

Nope. I'd have to call the city to open the drain and make a big to-do.

To be serious, have you tried using a torch to see exactly where it is in order to better formulate a plan

My friend lives with women, so they don't have a flashlight, and, ironically, no brooms to feel around with, so I'm screwed in the tool department. And the iPod was on, but the drain looks bone dry at the moment.

My friends once dropped his lighter down a storm drain because he lit a bunch of fire crackers in a park in front of little kids and we thought we heard police sirens. About fifteen minutes later we lifted up the grate no problem. Now which type of storm drai are we talking? the square one in the middle of the street or the half rectangle one on the edge of the side walk?

Really? The covers where I live aren't actually locked down, you can just pry up most of them and use a wrench to loosen others. I may or may not have gone into the storm drain on numerous occasions as a teen... These are the open ones built into the curb, with a man-hole cover on top though, not the ones flat with the surface of the street with an iron grill.

Take a pry bar down and go to town on it TS, no one will notice.

Your Ipod is smashed my friend. Move on, and buy a new Mp3 player.

Reading thru this thread... some of these jokes are so horrible....
I want to go as far to the edge without going over. Out on the edge, you can see all kinds of different things.

the magnet on a belt idea would be the best bet.

has creative logic but lacks...intelligence.

Ipod's aren't magnetic, and to get a strong enough magnet to pick it up considering the small amounts of magnetic metal in them would probably wipe the ipod anyway. :/

by storm drain you mean... a sewer or a one of those huge openings they put in runoff streams and stuff to keep the waters from rising?

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. And I was just using the golf club to prod around til I could see it, then find something better to pick it up with.

I believe this is what erector sets were made for. Are the headphones plugged into the iPod? Considering everything that my headphones get tangled on, this may be a good place to start. If not, how about one of those grabber devices.

Not worth it. The pathogens down a sewer drain would be horrible. Besides unless it is bone dry and somehow soft down there your Ipod will either be waterlogged or smashed/cracked. Plus it would smell like the swamp.

Get it on insurance or something...
