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.

Most of us have had at least one bad roommate. I had several at one point... and those were enough for me. Think about it: Large house, a bunch of different people... there was bound to be friction. I don't miss those days. The food lying around, the roommates who didn't bathe regularly and left dirty towels lying around in the single bathroom that house had or the one roommate who didn't know how to wash dishes properly. The frustration was unreal. Let's just say I escaped and years later, after a couple of other roommate situations, I thankfully live alone and stress-free!

People told us all about their worst roommates after Redditor Out-of-Simpacks asked the online community,

"What's your roommate horror story?"

Some of the most common forms of misinformation stem from false beliefs that have been passed down. One huge bit of terrible information taught as fact was the traditional food pyramid millennials grew up having drilled into us in school. It's almost like there might be a reason so many 90s kids have struggled with relationships with food.

This article is an ode to the "friend-dump" and the power of growth. Boundaries are awesome, dear readers. Growth and development are awesome.

Some of these friendships, though... not awesome.

Society places a lot of expectations on us based on our perceived gender, and those expectations can be a major burden. Guys who like pink or want to be nurturing fathers, women who like sports, gaming, or working out, all are often ridiculed or deemed suspicious by society. Nonbinary folks are often not acknowledged at all, and are expected to rigidly adhere to the role predetermined by their sex assigned at birth.
