Beep! Beep!

Hear that? That might be the sound of buried treasure, which we have on the brain thanks to Redditor 14jvalle, who asked: "People who roam the beach with metal detectors, what have you found?"


"I do it..."

I do it once a year at the end of the summer. There's a small beach out by my cabin, and a lot of people go there through the summer. I've found tons of jewelry, coins, and one time found a money clip with a whole $9 in singles.

I originally bought the metal detector to find all the target arrows I've lost behind my cabin. I've found none of those, but at this rate with my beach finds, it'll have paid for itself in 15-20 years.

"I found..."

I found another metal detector. It was the strangest thing.

"Lots of rusty nails..."

Lots of rusty nails—I was later told they were probably from pallets used to make bonfires. Still. Be careful.

Also lots of tent stakes. I could have started a tent stake business.

Literally nothing else. Been doing it for years.

"One time..."

One time my uncle found a friggin' 1942 FP45 pistol deep under some beach nobody goes to. The thing didn't work anymore but was still a crazy find.

"I found..."

I found a can of chicken noodle soup from 1969 and an old spoon.

The soup still looked edible besides the fat separation. The can was in good condition.

"Needles..."

Needles... lots and lots of needles.

The junkies in my town like to bury their needles/ lose them in the sand

"I later found out..."

Musket balls. I later found out that in 1866 there was a battle around that lake.

"Mostly..."

Mostly loose change, dropped keys, can tabs, bottle caps and things like that, but I did find an 18 karat gold man's wedding band once.

"One time..."

One time when I was little I watched a guy with a metal detector on the beach reach down only a few inches into the sand and pull out a whole metal colander. I've always wondered how it got there and how no one had stepped on it before, it was so shallow.

"Not at the beach..."

Not at the beach, but on the Oregon Trail through Idaho. I found a cache of large caliber bullets from the 19th century. They were in pretty bad shape, but most still have gun powder.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
