Description: I don’t know if you have looked down at the roads and parking lots when you travel, but there are some very interesting items being discarded in these areas. I decided they were worth recording and perhaps discussing a bit. It seems that our current culture is leaving some interesting finds for future anthropologists.
I am still amazed at the variety of things I come across in America’s parking lots and on the sidewalks. When I drop something, I pick it up. I don’t just leave it there for people to walk around or to have them be inconvenienced.
Now I must admit that if I dropped something that was quickly biodegradable such as crumbs from a muffin, I would probably let that stay on the ground. Something gross, dangerous or unsightly, I would pick up to throw out!
So what happened here? How do you think this came to be in a parking space?
This most likely would not damage a car’s tire, but it certainly can hurt a child or someone else who might touch it.

When we were hiking along the coast of Northern California, there were warning signs about “rogue waves” and advisories not to turn your back on the ocean. There is a good reason for this as indicated in the video below. The ocean is unpredictable. Don’t put yourself or others at risk for the sake of photography.
From the YouTube Channel:
“On a beach day, I decided to take a photograph on a rock that I found gorgeous. I was not aware my husband was making a video. While I was posing, he started to scream about the wave, and it really took me by surprise.” -Rosangela de Silva

The question above, “How dangerous is taking a shower?”, seems almost laughable at first glance, but if you watch the video below, you will gain an understanding that risks are not always what they seem. As we live longer and longer, the odds become stacked against us and we must maintain our vigilance to avoid mishaps. The video below shows how scientist/author Jared Diamond learned this lesson from the tribes of Papua New Guinea.
“Jared Diamond shares what he learnt about risk and everyday life from the tribes of Papua New Guinea. This was taken from a 2013 conversation, ‘The world until yesterday’. Watch the full discussion here: youtu.be/ceLuaf7low4
Pullitzer Prize-winner Jared Diamond discusses how insights from the lifestyles of far-removed cultures can impact the way we think about our own lives. Is it worth worrying about the risk of everyday actions like falling in the shower or tripping on the street? Each time you do these things, the risk of mishap is low, but we do them every single day. Over time, does that mean these tiny risks accumulate to become almost inevitable?
