Part of my daily commute to the college campus takes me through the dorm complex.
I've seen lots of crazy things :twitchy:, but this is the first bike related scenario.
A few had already be pulled back down, but other students were arriving only
to exclaim; "HEY! That's my bike!" :(
So, apparently, if you are looking for a bike, maybe look up in the trees and you
will find some ready to pick! :rolleyes:

Nothing new here, in my youth, my friends would hang each others bike on the top rung of a wooden power pole's climbing spikes.

In high school there where a gang of kids in town that would steal bikes and throw them in the public pool. Cops told me it was the first place they would look when someone reported a bike missing, even found a lawn mower or two in there.
Pools been gone for years now, good old days...

Here in Uppsala, Sweden, there's a little river that runs right through the middle of town. Every year, they dust off a truck with a sort of claw-hand crane thing to pull a couple hundred bikes out of the water.
Bike theft is rampant here in Sweden (Norway, Denmark...). Mostly it's someone walking along and deciding, 'Hmm. I don't want to walk any more. Oh look! A bike not locked with an inch thick horseshoe lock. I think I'll 'borrow' it!'
