I'm not looking for a competition here as I am guessing that the members of ATS are a strange bunch at best but I started thinking about some odd things that at some point have been in my possesion over the years.

I would love to year about what you have had or still had and why.

A few off the top of my head.

I had a stuffed antique baby aligator that used to sit on my desk for a while. I also had a half share in an 8 foot stuffed crocodile.

A 300 year old stone carved monkey head.

Pet wise I had a fire bellied newt with no legs called little stumps. I loved that guy.

On a twisted note an old house mate had a brick they found in Fred West's house until we made him get rid of it.

I find it interesting the things that you end up with over the years.

A video copy of a mock-up production of a MST-3K of Star Trek: The Search for God ... Ok, that's not the real name, but that's the title it will always have for me. "What does god want with a star ship?"

As a child, I had a stuffed Koala bear and a stuffed Kangaroo as toys... they were made from the real fur/claws/teeth, which is completely illegal now.

My dad brought them back for me when he was stationed in Australia for six months with the navy.



Other than that, my current empty beer bottle collection in the garage is quite impressive.

It's our retirement savings account... or if combined with a large slingshot, would make for a great castle defense mechanism should the zombie apocalypse kick in.

Whichever comes first.

Your Stuffed toys bought back another odd possesion memory!

I had a "paddington Bear" stuffed toy as a child. In my early 20's I saw a tv show about collectables and they said they were worth several hundred pounds, I rang my mother to let her know I intended to come over and grab him to sell(early youth and all, cash is cash).

My mother then informed me that it was not an origional but had in fact been made by a serial killer in the secure mental institute my uncle worked in when I was young.

Any time my mother says I am unusual I point out that my beloved childhood pal was in fact made by a mass murderer.

A toilet seat made of actual barbwire, never installed it though


We had two Emu's for a year, they didn't like children which we had 3 of, so they went for sale, they were cute though.

If anything like mine then I would say yes but in fairness with me as a parent it is somewhat to be expected.

Do you miss them? and was it hard to sell the kids?

How are the Emu's

I really put some thought into trying to remember something. Then I realized I still own something pretty weird.

I have every report put out by the House Committee on un-American activities during the 50s and 60s when they conducted their witchhunt in Hollywood and across the country.


But I have the feeling people that have read my post aren't to surprised by that.

I have some ivory Billikens that my great-grandmother bought in Alaska in the 1950s.

In the 1950s my grandfather went to Korea to help set up a phone system there. When he was leaving, he was presented with a beautiful black wooden box with inlaid abalone. You lift the lid and there is a little metal ash tray and also a place to put cigarettes, and another place to put matches. There is an inscription on the underside of the lid but it is in Korean so I don't know what it says. There is also a matching case for playing cards. These are mine now and I do treasure them.
