  10. I'm as honest as the day is long but if I ever found a treasure in a field or in the wall of a customer during renovations it is mine and that is it. Finders keepers losers weepers. No federal, state, corporate or museum deserves a penny! Well I guess that means I'm not as honest as the day is long.

  11. So crazy I know the guy at #1! He would come every week and get food to go from a place I worked. He likes to be called "Mikey". We spoke often when I would see him, and he's definitely led a very unique life. Surprisingly, this is one of his many stories that he never shared with me, and to me, the most unique!

  19. Read this and laugh your ass off. About 30 years ago I used to buy gold coins in 1oz coins and 1/4 oz coins, one day for some reason I had one of the 1/4 oz coins in my pocket, I went in the drive thru at McDonald's but I was a penny short, I felt what I thought was a penny in my pocket and gave it over to the cashier. Because I was a penny short, I mistakenly gave an 1/4 oz coin of gold to McD's. go ahead laugh at me, I deserve it.

  20. Number 5 is wrong Nicolas cage owes it and ot was stolen from him it was later found in a storage unit in south California. 5 is wrong

  21. hypothetically speaking, what is the value of something that would make you have to legally confess that you "found" it and try to find the owner of it? I mean, if I was a contractor gutting the walls of an old house and found some lock boxes and just threw them into the trash along with all the other construction rubbish, then later, after I get home I open them to find money, do I have to return it? It was trash. You don't have to return trash. What about things bought at antique stores that turn out to be worth millions? Those people don't go looking for the previous owners. Where is the line drawn? Of course we all would think about honesty and integrity, but I am only talking about legally. Anyone know?

  32. I found $3500 Au in the middle of a moderatelly busy road. Wwe were in our car. At first I thought it was monopoly money or somthing. But I stopped, reversed so that the passenger side door was beside the roll of $$$. My wife picked it up and we quickly realised it was real money. It was all $50 notes and a few $20's. No body claimed it and 3 months later it was ours :D. I also found $840 up a tree when I was 12 years old. Wass at an italian social club Dinner with our Italian neighbours neighbours (we were close almost family like neighbours). I was playing chasy with some of the other kids. I saw a pair of Football short hangin in the tree. I thought it would be funny to take those shorts and throw them at one of the girls to get a bit of an "Ewww" rection. The girl I threw them at indeed said "Ewww" and threw them back at me. When I caught the shorts in my hand, I felt a lump. I investigated the lump and found a roll of $50 notes and 2 x $20 notes. We took it to the police, no body claimed it and 3 months later I had the money. I purchased a balsawood Radio controlled aeroplane kit, and a series of electronics projects for children. Dick smith Funway projects to be precise. and put $300 in a term deposit. I've been rather lucky at finding money. I have always tried to be generous to homeless people. For e.g. There was a homeless man, in poor physical condition. Im not even sure if he was able to speak. He was just holdoinmg his hand out for money. I didnt have any significant cash or coins on me, but a short walk away I had a a lot of coins in my car. So i walked must the man, went to my car and rounded up about $50 worth of coins. I walked back to the man and I said to him "I want to give you this money, and I dont care if you buy alcohol or cigarettes. The only condition I have is that you follow me to this hotdog stand and let me buy you somthing to eat. Whatever change is left over, you can do whatever you want with ok?" He responded by grunting once and then following me. It made me feel so good to be able to do that. At that particular moment I was doing ok for money. But I have been homeless, drug addicted and broke. Many times through out my life. But no matter my circumstances, I always followed my hear and did the rigtht thing based on that. Itruly belive in the "Pay it forward" Mentality. I think it may well have paid off. I have been so lucky in many small ways (nothing major, but I feel like somthing big is coming). I win around $20 every week in the lottery. Another way to put that is that I get free lottery tickets. I basically win enough money to pay for my tickets for the last several years. even the lady who sells me the tickets says she has never seen anything like and she now copies my ticket selections lol. Im not christian, in fact christianity urks me somewhat, everything i do, I do because it makes me feel good and sleep better. I feel like maybe the universe trusts me a little. that if I ever did find BIG money, the universe would trust me to do the right thing with it. For e.g. if I won somthing BIG I would set up Refuge, sanctuary, charity for Animals and animal rescue etc. Or maybe its all just coincedence and i just have a vivid imagination 😀
