Collectors love their stuff, and people amass all sorts of things over their lifetimes. But the quest for that one perfect item is sometimes unending.

sigh_zip asked, [Serious] Hobbyists and collectors of Reddit, what is your 'holy grail' item?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

Pink Floyd. Nice.

1973 "Original Dark Side of the Moon" Vinyl. In very good condition.

It's not the super rare one, but still, this album is older than me by 12 years - probably the last thing I want to sell.

Villosa are very rare which is why they're expensive, and Venus flytraps are just cool af.

Grow a ton of Carnivorous plants. Own thousands of Venus flytraps and Sundews. Along with hundreds of Nepenthes and a few Sarracenia.

I'd love to find a Nepenthes Villosa. Sadly, any toothy variety of Nep is going for stupidly high amounts. The last Villosa I saw went for just over $1,400.

Admit it - you've wished you were a pinball.

I'd have to say a Williams 1993 Twilight Zone Pinball machine, or a 1992 Addams Family machine. Unfortunately, with the recent surge in popularity of pinball, I am now priced out of those machines.

Can't go wrong with Star Wars, especially LEGO Star Wars.

[rebelmouse-image 18359720 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Super star destroyer. Wasn't into LEGO when it was available for 400, now I'm saving up 750 to get one.

The most expensive Les Paul guitar retails for $8,599.

A Gibson Les Paul Custom with Tim Shaw Pickups in wine red or silverburst.

Is it a cup or Mary Madeleine's womb?

The Holy Grail... I'm a historian.

You kids have no idea what it was like, these early computers were so much fun.

[rebelmouse-image 18359723 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

As a computer collector, a Commodore 65 or an Apple I. The likelihood of owning either is pretty close to zero.

Jay Leno has one of these bad boys - all 12 cylinders and 600 + horsepower.

Driving a McLaren F1, I would probably have a major mental episode if I ever got the opportunity....may need to go to the mental hospital for a bit after that.

This British rifle shoots multiple rounds and can go for 5-6 figures at auction.

[rebelmouse-image 18359725 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My 1943 303 Enfield.

Good luck parallel parking it.

I am a railway enthusiast, trains, in particular, steam locomotives, are a big fascination of mine, so I'd say an actual steam locomotive.

People Explain Which Popular Tourist Destinations Aren't Worth Visiting

Everyone has their travel bucket list.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:

"What is a popular tourist destination you have no interest in visiting?"

And things that go "bump" in the night... sometimes they do more than bump.

Redditor ag9910 wanted to hear about the times home felt like an unsafe place to be. They asked:

"What is the scariest, strangest, most unexplainable thing that has happened to you while home alone?"

Not a lot apparently. We're learning more all the time.

And most of it is gross.
