Heaven forbid, if a burglar breaks into your home, what do you think they are likely looking to steal?


The usual suspects like the Bose speakers from your home theater system or expensive family heirlooms could be likely targets.

But there must be something you place much value on that you know the thieves aren't likely to pilfer.

Curious to hear from strangers on the internet about what those might be, Redditor woomy-jpg asked:

"Someone breaks into your house, what are they definitely NOT stealing?"

If it's part of the home, it's probably staying that way.

Pets or things having to do with furry companions are better left at home.

"Cat litter boxes (although it would be nice if they at least cleaned them.)"

"Protip if you package cat litter and leave it on your porch, it's very likely a porch pirate will steal it without thinking."

What You Can't See

"My dignity. Pick a different house, criminals."

My prized possessions are my framed photographs.

They are glimpses of all facets of my life, including family, career, and travels around the world.

Other than printing costs and the frames that are both standalone and hung on walls, my pictures hold no value other than being sentimental.

I have a pretty good feeling those won't be going anywhere.

I have a paralyzing fear of death. If I could I would live forever. Have you ever seen the movie "Death Becomes Her?" I would give every penny for that potion. And I wouldn't be all crazy like them.

Live well forever and be happy? It's possible. Even though life is nuts and scary, you're still here. What if there is nothing after the final breath? I don't want to just not exist, while everybody else just gets to keep on dancing.

In my hopes I see a Heaven with ice cream and vodka. So I'm going to hold onto that until eternal life is an option. Let's hear from the gallery...

Redditor u/St3fan34 wanted to discuss life after life, by asking:

What do you think really happens after death?
