I came across a nice chunk of diamonds and a spawning dungeon! Log in to Reply After a very bad day in High School, instead of grabbing my second bus home, I decided to skateboard the rest and stumbled across a wallet with $500 cash. Log in to Reply I once had someone park on my driveway while I was out. I came back, and instead of scratching the car, calling the police, or whatever, I just washed it. Got it nice and clean. It was Summer, a nice day, I had just finished uni two days before and had little to do. I left a polite note (which now reads more passive aggressive than I intended) explaining the situation, and went off to go pick some strawberries with my son. I put a few pics up on my FB and Twitter, in this time a friend posts the letter to Reddit, it hits the top of the front page and goes viral. The owner of a music news website I had unsuccessfully applied to for an internship at saw it and liked it. I took my shot, said if you like that I have other dumb ideas, how about rethinking that internship? He did. And my work there over the Summer led to more work, which ended up leading to a full time role in copywriting in the tech space, which has been where I’ve stably worked ever since. It’s helped pay for a house, a wedding, and generally whatever else I’ve needed to keep me alive and kicking. TL;DR – I was looking for something that would get a chuckle from some friends. I found full time work and a career for the next 9+ years. Log in to Reply Went into forest for a walk, and found a big ass fucking 80s 5band stereo radio Panasonic. I collect old things, so this was really cool for me. I cleaned it up and it’s sitting on my wardrobe now. It could even work by the looks, only visible thing that would prevent that is missing power cord.

I had just dug out some really nice iron ore, and thats when I saw it: the unmistakable pale blue sheen that could only mean one thing. *I had found my diamond*. Then I went back to my base and made a diamond hoe to annoy my friends playing on the server with me. Log in to Reply Looking for a hookup and finding my girlfriend. Gotta switch the iron and diamonds bit though. Log in to Reply Bought a violin at an auction for $20, got it appraised then sold for $700!

Log in to Reply Once I answered a W4M Craigslist ad that read: >###Looking for a really big dick > I just got divorced, and the only men I’ve been with have been *small.* Like the size of my thumb. I want to know what it’s like to be with one that I can really feel. Sure this was some sort of automated post, I shot a message anyway. A really low effort message. > Saw your ad. I’d like to talk on the phone, or meet for a drink. Get to know you, make sure there’s chemistry. Here’s me: [totally solicited dick pic] We celebrated our 10 year anniversary a few months ago.
