    Love the Marvin Gaye music in that vid... dunno if it's SFW. (lucky I'm just a mere unemployed university student)

    Maybe not strange things, but things that I know for a fact that OTHERS have found on my commute route in the past week:

    1) A faceplate for a Timex HRM watch

    2) An early 90's vintage rear blinkie, with approx 50% of the mounting bracket still attached to it.

    I found a can opener yesterday. I could not get back to it though. Looked like it would have worked fine.

He had been dead for several hours before I found him. I wasn't sure when I first saw him if he was dead so I approached off the bike and yelled at him but no response, so I touched him and he felt cold, not breathing, no pulse, and was staring blankly, so I followed my steps out so in case he was killed the scene would be undisturbed as much as possible and flagged a car down who called 911.
    Did local law enforcement follow up with you, or that's pretty much all you know to the story?

    Someone else posted about finding a body in a river (and posted a picture of it) several years ago. I think it was Joeybrooks in New Orleans.

    I found a roll of quarters on the ride home yesterday. Does anyone else pick up random change too? Or am I the only tightwad?

    Nope, I once found 86 cents at an intersection. Darn right I picked it up.

    A completely nude woman, strolling down the street in the same direction that I was rolling, walking as if she was sure she had clothes on. It was early, so nearly no traffic out. Very odd.

    Was she at least wearing shoes? There can be some pretty nasty sharp rocks and broken glass in the street/sidewalk.

    In the past two weeks, I've found the following...

    1) A Crescent wrench.
    2) A girls ID card (haven't been able to find her to give it back).
    3) A HTC touchscreen phone - with a ran over battery. Gave me a new 4gb micro sd card though!
    4) A left crank arm with a pedal still on it. (no sign of the right arm or other pedal lol).

    This morning - Side view mirror laying in the bike lane that had been ripped off a car.

    I wish I knew the story behind how it got there (second hand of course).

    I found an iphone in the wet street yesterday, it had not been run over yet and a cute Kate Spade case had protected it well from the rain. I was rewarded $27 for delivering it to the owners husband. Everybody was happy and the sun came out for the first time in four days.

    Intricate patters, interesting design.

    Attempted to collect; began moving on its own. Appears arcane; unsafe for collection. Leaving as found.
    Good thing you didn't collect. Looks like an alligator snapper from the pictures, it may have collected one of your fingers for the trouble.

    Saw a squirrel using a drinking fountain today...



    The bugger was thirsty... I watched him drink for over two minutes.

    A pair of (ice) hockey goalie sticks in someone's garbage. Bungie'd 'em to the bike and proceeded carefully home; fortunately not too much further.

    Since i first started reading this thread i've been looking and today i finally saw something. A Monarch Butterfly, haven't seen one in many years and i thought it was odd sitting on the edge of the road at this time of year but i didn't want to bother it.
    P.S. Turns out it may be less odd my coworkers tell me they are thick this year. Apparently i don't pay attention so good.
