Unusual mirrored furniture piece. Maybe a barber shop piece?

A: Common for late 1800s, early 1900s. Entryway furniture, often a coat or hatrack incorporated. Tall because row houses of the era had 10-12 ft ceilings on the entry floor

Large pencil sharpener with abrasive block on side. Not a circular hole for a normal pencil. Has freely rotating inner section.

A: It’s for sharpening carpenter’s pencils

Some sort of glass bowl with a handle, no markings. Banana for scale.

A: It’s just a mug with a horn

Tiny – 20mm long – 3mm wide – metal plug looking thing – Found in my car on the floormat – any ideas!

A: It’s the core of a tyre valve.

Found drilling holes in Rochester NY. It is glass with three glass “tabs” on the bottom. There is wire coming out of the bottom. On the bottom there is a perforated copper plate that appears to have coiled wire behind it. Dimensions are the pictures.

A: Vintage glass electric cigar lighter

Izismile Videos

Clamshell container with four spherical vented compartments found in sewer drain

A: You literally put that in your toilet to keep it clean. Can’t remember the brand but use them myself. Basically someone flushed their toilet freshener

10+ years old gift, little pots with powders and metal stamps

A: It is a bindi stamp kit

Wooden torch-like thing, bulb-shaped end with regular notches cut into it

A: It’s a traditional Mexican whisk to make hot chocolate

Someone claiming this is a section of Bezos spacecraft that fell in London. It’s clearly not but any idea what it is? He’s asking 700k for it!! What is this thing?

A: It looks like an old mini fridge and some junk.

This is a dome-shaped object stuck to garden decking. It’s slightly jelly in substance and appeared overnight. I’m penny for size reference.

A: It’s a slime mold called a ‘false puffball’

Small, light blue, rubber capsule with a tear-off end

A: It looks like a cosmetics serum capsule

Green rubber thing with 3 holes….?

A: It’s an end cap for a three-legged garden trellis.

Seen often in Tehran, Iran, and nowhere else in the world. On the sidewalks, made of metal, maybe 4 feet tall.

A: From what found it’s used for wheelchairs to go over un level ground. Looks like there is a dip there.

This strange metal thing next to a playground.

A: It is one version of funnel ball. A “game” where you throw the ball in the top, and it comes out one of the holes. Sometimes, the holes have points painted on them.

Large concrete containers with slab lid. Completely enclosed. Being buried together. Hundreds.

A: Spread out along a roadway makes me think they’re used for storm water retention and they will be drilled for pipe connections once they are buried

Wooden box with two holes on top one circular one oval shaped. It has a hinge on top that holds something inside, not sure what it’s used for.

A: Its called a Dugout you put ground up weed and a one hitter in the slots

Metal signs stuck in the ground all over England that have feet and inches stamped into them

A: They’re fire hydrant markers.

What is this hoop and square block cut out of the stone? In the middle of nowhere in Wales, UK

A: This could be a mounting location for raising a boundary marker, flag pole, statue, cross… heck even a fountain or an animal feeding station.

Hidden camera in air vent? Women’s bathroom in a restaurant. Want to make sure I’m not overreacting but I don’t think I’ve ever noticed this in any other restaurant bathrooms before. Did my best to take pictures but didn’t want to stay too long to raise any alarms.

A: People hiding cameras in bathrooms don’t put lights on them to draw attention. Lights in a bathroom vent are usually related to a humidity detector.

Sarah, Are sure it's not part of Bezos' starship? After all he did take off in New Mexico for a suborbital flight and return to the same place. He could have jettisoned it and it flew 7,000 miles to fall in London! LOL

#2.. a stupid concept! because the whole point, so to speak, of a carpenters pencil is to have a wide 1/4"mark to easily see and a very thin accurate line where the cut should be made. Similar to how a calligraphy pen works

Cathy,

I agree. There is no way that is a structure made for a wheelchair to go over anything. The arc is so short and the sides are so compact it would be impossible to go through or over in a wheelchair
