A String Quartet Performed for 2,300 House Plants Because That’s What Our World Is Now

If you’re a performer of any kind, then you know that one of the best things in the world is your audience. People are tough – they whisper, they shift, they crinkle their programs, they have to go to the bathroom…

Plants, though, are completely quiet and attentive for an entire performance, no matter how long it goes on.

A fact this string quartet surely appreciated after they put on a performance for an audience of 2300 house plants. They performed UceLi Quartet’s rendition of Giacomo Puccini’s Cristantemi (Chrysanthemum) at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona.

The pictures are as bizarre as they are beautiful.

The theater hasn’t held any performances since March, so artist Eugenio Ampudia was able to implement his idea for a Concert pel Bioce (Concert for the Biocene), inspired by how his thoughts about nature have been impacted by the pandemic.

The plants were afterward gifted to the frontline workers at the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona.

The artist spoke with the Associated Press about his inspiration for the idea:

“I heard many more birds singing, and the plants in my garden and outside growing faster. A

nd, without a doubt, I thought that maybe I could now relate in a much more intimate way with people and nature.”

The performance can now be viewed online, and even though you might be tempted to laugh at the audience of greenery, the fact is that there’s evidence that plants enjoy music quite a lot.

In 1962, botanist T.C. Singh believed his plants benefitted from a growth spurt after hearing classical music, and the idea has been explored by countless children in science fairs ever since.

The type of music does seem to matter, as subsequent papers have claimed rock music like Zeppelin and Hendrix actually causes plants to wilt, and there are whole Soundcloud videos dedicated to music for plants.

A 2014 study tried to establish how and why plants might benefit from certain types of music, positing that waves of varying intensities could impact cell growth – plants like lettuce, spinach, cotton, and rice grew between 5 and 20% more while in the presence of music.

Word is out on how the plants that enjoyed this performance reacted, but we all liked it, and I’m sure the hospital workers are happy to have their days brightened by fresh greenery.

There’s something otherworldly about seeing these plants in the seats where humans once sat (and will hopefully one day sit again).

People Talk About Fans They’ve Seen Do Totally Crazy Things

Some industries attract rabid fans that border on absolutely insane.

Sports teams, certain bands and singers, and especially hobbies.

And sometimes fans will do almost ANYTHING to pledge their allegiance to a person, a group, or a specific thing.

Hey, people are kind of insane.

I’ve been a lifelong Chicago Blackhawks game and I’ve barely missed watching a game in the past 25 years, but even I show a little restraint…most of the time.

AskReddit users shared their stories.

1. High in the sky.

“Skydivers living in their cars. I’ve known multiple skydivers who choose to live out of their cars to be at the drop zone 24/7. These are not people who couldn’t afford an apartment or couldn’t commute.

But they work at the DZ and choose to live in their cars so they are there literally 100% of the time to either be jumping for $ or spending those $s jumping.

I get it. It’s a great sport, but shit.”

2. Disney fanatics.

“I’m going to include this one since I haven’t seen it with Disneyland.

Some people are so rabid for the park that they’ve named and keep track of the stray cats on the property. I’ve seen a few employees/cast members yelled at because they couldn’t tell them the exact location of their favorite cat.”

3. Weirdos.

“In college, I worked on a photo essay about a haunted house that took its job very seriously – actors wore no masks (only special effects make-up, and it was good), had to create full characters and yelling or saying “boo” was verboten.

You had to create a full character and dialogue. It was a super scary house – the highest-level actors who spooked people out front even carried real weapons. I acted there one night, wearing several layers of latex on my face and breaking blood capsules in my mouth for added effect, and it was one of the most fun nights of my life.

The house attracted a lot of D&D/gaming/nerd types, and some of these people took this INCREDIBLY SERIOUSLY. Many of them never showered for the duration of the season – about two months, if not longer – so that you smelled them long before you heard or saw them in the house. It really did add to the scare factor.

But one woman, who had a spot in a wooded trail between buildings, took it to the next level. All day during season, she would binge eat – she was tiny, but she would eat these massive meals all day. Then, when hiding in the bushes, she’d stuff blood capsules into her mouth to make herself throw up massive, bloody puddles. It was … horrifying.”

4. These are MY animals.

“Worked in public education at a zoo.

Every zoo gets some crazies who think if the animals as their pets. One guest, o will call her Now, loved our great apes and jaguars. When our much loved bonobo died, all the staff were sad. He was old and had passed of heart failure.

And then I realized that N was probably coming in that day as I hadn’t seen her the day before. I grabbed my boss, and the next hour was radio calls around the zoo determining who had to be the one to tell N. I threatened to quit if it fell on me.

It was determined the primate supervisor had to tell N as the supervisor had been the one to discover the death that morning. When N arrived at the main entrance, the supervisor was called, and several security people stationed themselves bear the bonobo exhibit. When N got the news, she cried a bit and went home to mourn. We were relieved.

And then N showed up the next day screaming at staff that we didn’t even attempt CPR on a bonobo who’s end we had been expecting for months. Then she started grabbing guests and telling them how terrible the zoo staff were.

Police were called. Within a couple of weeks there was a restraining order in place and N is still not allowed on the property more than a decade later.

I wish that was the only restraining order against a guest in my time there, but it sadly was not.”

5. Groupies.

“Used to be a professional musician.

Did a tour with a band called Bring Me The Horizon. Girls would line up outside of their bus every single night to catch a glimpse of their singer, Oli. One night, some girl who was maaaybe 14, saw me play (in a separate band entirely), and approached me.

This wasn’t uncommon, but the first thing she asked was, “Have you ever shaken Oli’s hand???” I said that I had. She then asked if she could hold/kiss my hand. It was insane.

For the record, I vehemently declined her request.”

6. Coaster enthusiast.

“I used to work at a coaster called Dragon Challenge (Formerly Dueling Dragons) at Universal Orlando. We had a coaster enthusiast known as Raptor Jo (named after the Raptor coaster) who would visit often and give us candy, cakes, and other gifts.

She was usually nice, but she was a bit of a nut and has tattoos of at least a dozen coasters all over her. When Dragons was torn down to make room for a new Harry Potter coaster, Raptor Jo was pissed, decided to boycott Universal, changed her Dragons tattoo to add a gravestone, and added a full window decal to the back of her car that says “RIP my babies 1999-2017″.

She still comments on a lot of team members posts on social media.”

7. They’re pretty intense.

“Historical re-enactors are in an arms race over who can make themselves the most miserable in a weekend because it makes the hobby “authentic.”

I think the most extreme situation I heard of was Civil War re-enactors intentionally soiling their uniforms and rubbing spoiled meat on themselves so when they got “shot” they would smell like rotting corpses.”

8. Here’s an idea.

“Used to work at a Subway when Jared was at the height of his pitch man fame and we had an overweight woman who came there breakfast, lunch and dinner every day without fail.

She would pitch us on the idea of a “Bride of Jared” commercial that parodied “Bride of Frankenstein”, like we sandwich artists had any say in the company’s marketing.”

9. He’s back…

“I worked at Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America for 4 years throughout college. One of our regulars was a middle-aged black guy who – no joke – ALWAYS wore a purple suit, 1 white bedazzled glove, and carried a cane (for looks, didn’t seem like he used it to walk).

I literally never heard him say a word in the entire time I worked there, not sure if he was mute/deaf, and he would come in at least once a week. He would ride every single ride by himself, even the little kiddie rides, once and then leave.

Never learned his name or anything about him, but every time he saw me he’d run over and give me a fist bump.

He was a super pleasant guy, just very eccentric. It’s been about 4 years since I worked there, not sure if he’s still coming in or not.”

10. A Pizza Hut obsession.

“Used to work at Pizza Hut.

At least once per week this guy came into our store at 2 orders of spaghetti with extra sauce. He would also do this at other locations so he had Pizza hut spaghetti probably 5-6 times a week.

After eating he would go sit in his car and blankly stair into space for several hours before driving away.”

11. This is a complete mystery to me.

“Phish and Dead fans.

I know a few like this. One has 50+ terabytes of just Grateful Dead shows dating back to before his birth and something like $15k in mint original concert posters framed on his walls.

I would try not to talk to him about music when we were in the work truck together for fear that he would never stop.”

12. College sports.

“I’ve worked in higher ed for 30 years. The obsession over college sports, especially in Division 1, is just nuts. I know people who chose a college because of a team. No mention of whether the university actually offered coursework in their intended major – they just wanted to get tickets.

I’ve worked on campuses where coaches and athletic directors were more powerful than the chancellors or presidents.

Clark Kerr was more correct than he knew when he said that the three purposes of a university were parking for the faculty, sports for the alumni, and sex for the students.”

13. At the water park.

“Worked at a water park. We had this couple that bought season tickets to the park every year. They were avid money collectors. Essentially what they did was they would rotate between our lazy rivers and our wave pool and just collect change that people dropped at the bottom of the pools.

They were there practically every day during the summer. They were obsessed with collecting lost money at the bottom of the pool. They claim that they collect enough money to buy season tickets every year and food at the park (which means they’ve collected several hundred dollars over the course of the summer).”

14. You’re going pro whether you like it or not!

“Hockey dads were the worst growing up. You could tell whose dad was trying to push their kid into the NHL stardom that they couldn’t reach.

Its the guy sitting in the stands watching every practice and screaming like a lunatic.

Wrestling dads are a close second.”

15. This is creepy.

“Okay, so let me just say upfront I don’t think the career I had would generally attract rabid enthusiasts – but I ended up getting a really creepy fan boy regardless. I was a forensic death investigator – forensics police officers that generally work with the DA’s office and/or the Medical Examiners office – so I guess we would get the occasional person who thought it was interesting because they’d seen CSI or Law and Order a few times.

Anyway, fanboy showed up to a suspected homicide scene and was chattering at the poor uni’s guarding the scene and trying to snap a few pics. So I figured he was really nosy, tone deaf press – gave him a scolding and told him that what he was doing wasn’t appropriate and was disrespectful of the decedent.

He agreed and left and I figured that was the last I’d see of him. But no, a week later the same guy showed up at another questionable scene but it doesn’t click that something is seriously off until he shows up at what turned out to be a suicide a complete county away from the last scene.

Apparently I wasn’t alone in my concerns as he was creeping out some of the other investigators that noticed him while working their cases too.

I get one of my coworkers to shake him down – see who the hell he is and what business he has to be here. Sure we get rubberneckers all the time who are curious and a bit morbid but no big deal, once the excitement passes they move on.

Guy has no criminal record and doesn’t work for the press so one of my superiors had a talk with him that he was making people nervous and it looked pretty shady to just start showing up at crime scenes.

Guy takes the hint for a while and decides a new tactic – fucker shows up at one of my favorite dive bars. Now I’m a 5’7” woman who doesn’t look imposing in the least, I also made it a point to live well away from where I work for various reasons.

He tries to buy me a drink chat me up with some of the creepiest shit I have ever heard – “What’s the worst crime scene you’ve investigated?,” “Have you ever worked on a case where the victim was dismembered?,” “Do you think rape/murder cases are really about power dynamics and not sexually motivated?”

I completely shut him down, not even trying to be polite and he seemed a little put off but not apologetic in the least. I put in notice with the DA’s office and ME’s office to give them a heads up and start a paper trail for an RO. He’s served with a cease and desists a few days later.

Not even 24 hours after the cease and desist is delivered he’s back to shadowing crime scenes like it’s going out of style and even gets into an altercation with one of the uniformed officers.

He gets slammed with trespassing, obstruction, and a few other charges but since he has no record he’s let out on bail – and shows up to a scene I’m working. We get into a scuffle after her breaks one of my guy’s nose to get onto the scene and my partner and I finally get him cuffed.

So, turns out he had a police scanner and a lot of creepy journals in his car – as well as notes on where I lived and worked along with info on one of the other female investigators.

Yeah, I never thought people would be that obsessed with crime scenes, forensics, or the like that they’d end up going to jail – but here we are.”

16. That’s wild.

“Train enthusiasts have been known to break into rail facilities and steal stuff off the more unique or rare equipment.

It’s a fairly regular occurrence… and often ruins it for the rest of us, as it’ll put that piece of equipment out of circulation.”

Wow…some people get a little obsessed, huh?

How about you?

Have you ever had to deal with obsessive fans?

Or maybe YOU’RE a crazy fan of something?

People Share Songs They Think Are Great but Most People Haven’t Heard Of

This will be a lot of fun! I always love to discover new music, so this will be a great opportunity to do that.

I personally have a TON of songs that I love that think are Perfect Tens that most people probably haven’t heard of…

Those are just a few of examples. Want to hear about some more?

Let’s see what folks on AskReddit had to say.

1. Heard this one?

You Go Down Smooth- Lake Street Dive.

Lake Street Dive is slept on as HELL. This was the first of their songs that I heard, but now I adore their entire discography and have seen them three times in concert.

All of their albums have incredible bangers, but since they added Akie Bermiss for the last album/EP their energy has been off the charts. Young Boy, Angioplast, Red Light Kisses, and Baby Don’t Leave Me Alone With My Thoughts are some of their best songs!”

2. I’ll have to check this out.

Klaatu – Calling Occupants of interplanetary craft.

Interesting fact this album leaked in the seventies and everyone was convinced it was recorded by the Beatles secretly.

When it turned out to be a completely different group it was forgotten.

Still a beautiful prog rock sound though.

3. Should have been a hit.

To The Dogs or Whoever by Josh Ritter

Somewhere between outright lyrical brilliance and clever, mischievous wordplay. Smart and still earthy.

It could have/should have been the millennial American Pie but only caught a fraction of the audience it deserved.

4. Underrated.

Mew – Am I Wry?, No

One of the most underrated songs from one of the most underrated bands, directly from Denmark.

5. Give it a listen.

Story 2 by clipping.

Probably my favorite song by them. Not only is there a compelling narrative that drives the song, but given the rather tense nature, it speeds up not just the flow, not just the beat, but the time signature.

Goes from 3/4 at the beginning to what I think is 14/8 at the end. Haven’t seen something quite like it in any other rap song.

6. Pinback.

Good to Sea by Pinback

Harmonized vocals and cool bass hooks.

7. The Hotelier.

Your Deep Rest and Housebroken by The Hotelier.

Your Deep Rest being a very personal depiction of losing someone to suicide and Housebroken being (in my eyes) a simultaneous attack on animal and domestic abuse.

8. A beautiful song.

The state v.s. Thomas Light by The Protomen

Easily the most beautiful song I’ve ever heard, with a brilliant buildup, leading to a wonderfully tragic conclusion!

9. A twofer.

Plea From a Cat Named Virtute by the Weakerthans.

It’s the first in what eventually became a four song series.

Also, Cigarettes and Saints by The Wonder Years.

10. Rainbow Kitten Surprise.

Hide by Rainbow Kitten Surprise.

My favorite band out there rn. I was gonna see them last week (even had M&G tickets) but obviously that got postponed til god knows when.

I was so excited to show them the tattoo I got! It’s the lyrics “the quiet die young” from Painkillers.

Also 10/10 recommend (from the same album) Its Called:Freefall.

11. An Icelandic song.

Vor í Vaglaskógi by KALEO is an amazing song!

It’s in Icelandic and is absolutely beautiful

12. A rock opera.

Majestic – Wax Fang

Amazing rock opera.

13. M Ward.

Chinese Translation by M Ward

I would always play this song for my kids when they were younger and my daughter would call it “Chinese Tarajalation,” then one day she said Chinese Translation and it made me sad.”

14. From Norway.

Homesick by a Norwegian band called ‘Airbag’

If you like psychedelic rock and have heard the likes of Pink Floyd or Porcupine Tree, this song is pure class.

15. This sounds cool.

Chinggis Khan by The Hu.

They are a Mongolian band who combine traditional instruments and throat singing with modern rock and synth sounds.

They are totally awesome!

16. From another time…

Dengue Fever – “Escape from Dragon House”

A song that sounds like it’s from another time, but not a time you’re familiar with. The story of this band is incredible. They started out as a cover band of rock n roll artists from Cambodia, most of whom were wiped out by the Khmer Rouge in the 60s and 70s.

A whole music scene disappeared with little evidence remaining, aside from what people had saved on tape cassettes. Dengue Fever has also done a lot to preserve the music from that time period in Cambodia.

I also recommend looking up a lot of the artists they covered in their early career like Ros Sereysothea, Pan Ron, and Sinn Sisamouth.

17. A fantastic mix.

The Comet is Coming- Summon the Fire.

Easily in my personal top ten.

The combination of what sounds like urban jazz and funk electronica makes for a fantastic mix.

18. Solo stuff.

What it Is – Mark Knopfler

Not enough people know how good Mark Knopfler’s solo albums are.

Shangri-La and Sailing to Philadelphia are two of his finest.

19. Time to fly.

Levitation by Beach House.

Makes me feel like I’m flying.

20. A tragic song.

PROM / KING by Saba.

Incredible rap about his friend who got shot and killed in the projects in Chicago when they were just growing up and coming into their own.

21. Time for some metal!

Anything by the band Stratovarius.

They’re a disbanded 90’s Finnish power metal band.

My favorite album was they’re final one Enigma: Intermission II.”

22. Check it out.

“Soldier, Poet ,King” by The Oh Hellos.

Just recently heard of the band but I got hooked on pretty easily.

They got some pretty cool songs if you wanna check them out.

23. I like the title.

Cold Beer by Jesse Stewart

This is not his original song, the original song is Cry Tunes by Donny Dumphy, but I think most would agree this version is much better.

(Editor’s Note: Caution, there’s blood in that video link.)

24. Devastating.

Limousine by Brand New.

A brilliant song with a brilliant framing device.

One of the most devastating songs of all time.

25. A collaboration.

When Good Dogs Do Bad Things By the Dillinger Escape Plan w/ Mike Patton.

If you like hardcore… this is heaven.

26. Sounds promising.

Texas Sun – Leon Bridges on vocals; Khruangbin backing him up.

This a sort of soft rock/alt/country love song. Just give it a shot and see what you think.

27. I wonder what this is like…

Celestial Elixir by Haken.

Although, due to the circusy parts I’d give it an 8/10 overall.

Without the circusy parts 10/10.

29.

Bread – Guitar Man.

It’s a great short story on a traveling guitar player who cares for only one thing: finding a crowd to play for, playing, then finding the next crowd, and so on.

The song happily builds up the story, then breaks into sadness as he connects profoundly with his audience, then back to happiness all around and more build up, then a tragic twist occurs.

All while the array of background instruments slowly expands, and eventually crescendos into an extatic crowd and its euphoric shoutcasters, while a perfectly placed violin rounds the whole song off with a simple set of notes that together with the story, the melody, the crowd, and with you, drift away and fade out.

It’s such a perfect balance between major and minor — it gets me every time.

It’s so incredibly fucking well done that I cannot understand why this is not a classic. Seriously: if anyone listens and has an idea, then tell me. Reply and give it your worst. I want to know if I’m biased or insane or plain right here.

Thanks for all the recommendations, people of Reddit!

Now we want to hear even more from all of you.

In the comments, please share recommendations of songs you absolutely love but most people don’t know about.

We look forward to hearing from you!

This Video From 2009 Featuring Emo Kids and Their Mallrat Friends Is a Dose of Nostalgia

Are you ready for a little trip down memory lane?

Many of us remember our high school days fondly: hanging out at the mall, chilling in random parking lots waiting for something, ANYTHING, to happen.

And, of course, there was the fashion. No matter what era you grew up in, the clothing, the hairstyles, and the pop culture influenced you and your friends.

Photo Credit: YouTube

A woman uploaded a video to YouTube from 2009 of her and her friends doing what teenagers do: hanging out and doing a whole lot of nothing, but in a good way.

And it’s packed full of the era’s emo looks and attitudes, lip rings, dyed hair, etc.

Photo Credit: YouTube

Here is the full six-and-a-half minute video in all its glory. Enjoy!

A lot of people online LOVED the video because they were kids around that time, too.

People Talk About What Their Parents Threw out That Would Be Worth a Lot of Money These Days

My dad always says that if he would’ve kept his baseball card collection from the 1950s he’d be a millionaire.

Well, it didn’t exactly work out that way…

I don’t know if he threw those cards out or his parents did, but they’re LONG GONE.

And you know this is a pretty common story.

A lot of us had collections of all kinds of stuff when we were kids that suddenly disappeared for one reason or another.

In this AskReddit article, people talk about the things they had as kids that would be worth a lot of money…if their parents hadn’t thrown it all away.

1. Dammit, Mom!

“My brother had a bunch of first edition Pokémon cards, that he spent over a year collecting.

Mom took them away for getting in trouble at school, and they were never seen again.”

2. Oh, those…

“I had the complete collection of teenage mutant ninja turtles figures.

I packed them into a box and put them away then later when looking for them i couldn’t find them… asked my mother.. “oh those, i threw them out.. you weren’t playing with them anymore””

3. It’s not “junk”.

“About 40 Indian Arrow heads collected on my grandparents farm for years by myself and my grandfather and full sets of baseball cards from 1969-1980, my mom decided to toss out all that “junk” when I moved out for military.”

4. That is not cool.

“After my mom died, my dad met this crazy, Jehovah’s Witness woman and one thing led to another. About a month before my high school graduation we got into a HUGE fight over something  and she burned my collection of old Dungeons and Dragons
books and magic cards.

Complete collections…Every 1st edition book in good condition
signed by Gary Gygax. I guess my brother knew him at some point.

The real kicker? I rode the wave of the original magic the gathering launches back in the day, complete sets of the original series through…homelands? All burnt to a crisp. Every once in a while when i want to be depressed about never being able to retire i look up the card values.”

5. Comic books.

“Nearly all of the first 24 editions of virtually every Marvel series, from The Fantastic Four to Spiderman (including the Amazing Tales in which he was introduced) to Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos. Basically all of them.

At a comic book store I was once looking at some collectors editions of those comics priced at about $1,500 to $,2400. I said to the clerk “Man, I used to have all of these.”

The clerk, whom I’m sure was Matt Groening’s model for Comic Book Man, without even looking up said in a bored voice, “Do you know how many times a day I hear that?””

6. Evil devil music!

“My mom had a collection of signed Beatles records that she threw away after she converted to Christianity because played backwards they summoned the devil or something.

For years I was hoping to inherit it when I grew up.

All I think it summoned was poverty. :/ “

7. Stamp collectors.

“Stamps.

When I was around 7 I used to stay at this friend of my parents house. She was older, and sort of a substitute grandmother. Her mother lived with her, she used to collect stamps. When she passed away the subbie gran gave me the collection.

My oldest brother had them in his room, I can’t remember why. My parents used to make a big pile in the middle of our rooms of what was messy and we had a couple of hours to put it all away. My brother faffed about and didn’t do it. So the remaining pile was thrown out. In that pile was the collection of stamps.

To this day I believe that there would have been valuable stamps in that collection considering the age of the collection, but I’ll never know.”

8. That’s kind of weird.

“I had mined 8 bitcoins at age 16. Kept them in a hard disk. When they grew in value I searched for and hard disk to know that my mom sold it to a 19 yr old for $50. I still curse my mom for doing that.”

9. Those very popular dolls.

“Barbies.

My family wasn’t super well-off growing up, but for some reason they allowed my sibling and I to amass dozens of Barbies, hundreds of clothes, two doll houses, three cars, one RV, a plane, and so fucking much else besides. When I was 12 and had outgrown it all, my dad decided it was time to pass them onto younger cousins or otherwise get rid of them.

Looking back, we should’ve held onto most of it. I had celebrity Barbies, anniversary Barbies, Barbies that came with horses, or were ballerinas, or were otherwise novel in the Barbie world. I literally spent 10 years collecting Barbies and now don’t even have a single shoe to show for it.”

10. I bet you’d like to have those right about now.

“The original Transformers in boxes. Had all main characters and nearly all of the smaller bots. Got em when I was 11, 12 or so in the mid 80s.

Left for the military and mom had a huge garage sale…”

11. That’s interesting.

“Lynyrd Skynyrd had released an album where the album cover had the band members standing in a fire. Not long after the release of this album, some of the members died in a plane crash and they recalled the albums so they could give it a more appropriate cover.

My grandpa had one of the originals and he probably could have made a lot off it… if his mom didn’t throw it away not knowing what it was…”

12. Long gone.

“A bunch of World War I coins that was thrown away because I never looked at them, I knew they were gonna be worth a fortune so I tried to not go near them because I was extremely paranoid.”

13. That’s a rough one.

“Not thrown away, but sold. I had a baseball card collection with over 200,000 cards when I was a teenager. Many HOF autographs, memorabilia cards, signed gloves and balls, a game worn jersey from the Padres 98 World Series run.

Needless to say, it was already worth a decent amount at that time. I have looked up some of the larger items in today’s retail markets, and those alone would’ve fetched around $20-25,000 USD. My mom took them when I moved to my dad’s house because she was abusive. Sold it all for a few thousand on Craigslist and kept the money.”

14. Remember those?

“My collection of Polly Pockets.

I’ve literally seen some of the ones I had worth thousands of dollars now.”

15. The vintage stuff.

“Robots, lots of robots from the 60’s, and 70’s, some were the tin type, some were plastic, some I haven’t even seen on the internet although I keep thinking someone has to have at least one left somewhere.

All in total about 25+ kinds of robots from my childhood, that my dad threw out because apparently when you turn 12, you don’t need toys. This is probably why my wife makes fun of all the junk I keep, because I never got the choice to part with them so now I horde all remaining childhood possessions.”

16. Had to do it.

“I remember when state quarters first came out, my father sent me a collection of every first edition state quarter and one time I went to show my friends awhile later and couldn’t find them, I asked my mother and she said she had to use them for laundry.

We were very poor at the time so I understand, but I was a little sad by it as well because it was one of the only things my father ever sent me.”

Ouch!

It hurts to read some of those stories, huh?

Now we want to hear from you!

Did your parents ever get rid of some items that became valuable a lot later? Or maybe you lost them or threw them away yourself?

Tell us all about it in the comments!
