What's cool to you might not be cool to the next person, so make sure you really have a good idea what is in, and what is out.

The Best Stuff People Found In The Garbage

"Value" is a very slippery concept, and what one person might choose to throw away could equally be seen as a major score for someone else. There are idiots throwing away guitars, TVs and jackets just because of a small fixable issue, and it's the sworn duty of the rest of us, the shameless garbage sifters, to pluck that ripe fruit-o-the-trash. Ironically it's often the stuff that people try to sell that's the real garbage, like this weird and dumb stuff people tried selling online. For a glimpse at the kind of people throwing nice stuff away, here are some of the most expensive things people witnessed.

interesting and valuable things people found in the trash | Handwriting - Duck-Yo-Couch 2 days ago Once I found a perfectly good stationary bike that my neighbors threw out that I cleaned up then used for years. Can't believe this day comes only 52 times a year.

Joan Mir pulled off nothing short of a miracle recovery after wiping out real hard on their bike. This is some superhuman level madness.

Many of us have had our experiences with playing around with Hot Wheels cars when we were growing up. It's a video like this, where you get to see some awesome Hot Wheels cars drifting around that can really bring on the tidal wave of nostalgia.

Apparently this terrarium was put together back in 2007-2008, which makes it at least 12 years old. Maybe we're all living in some kind of terrarium ourselves.

Just imagine if they had two monster smoke rings collide. Like actually what would happen? Maybe nothing at all. That being said, this massive contraption would be way too much fun to play around with.

Compelling Fan Theories People Choose To Believe

Sure, every story has a whole lot of loose ends, but extra enjoyment can be had when we try to tie up those loose ends into an impenetrable, Gordian-knot-monkey's fist-like-forlorn-Christmas-light-ball of double meanings and equivocated contexts. Y'know, fun. For some more over-analysis, here's Tumblr's extreme analysis of Ratatouille.

Resilient Trees that Don't Give A Heck

Trees seem incapable of caring where they are or what they're doing. And we respect them for that. They could be on a cliff, in a pole, or be a hungry tree enveloping stuff and they wouldn't even give a rip. Not only do trees not care, sometimes people don't give a heck, and the results are wild.

Just in case you've never feasted your eyes upon some RC racing at play, it turns out that it's quite the exciting spectacle to behold. These guys aren't messing around. Plus, the actual race announcer is beyond jacked up, which makes the whole event that much more entertaining to sit back and watch.

Twitter Thread: Mom And Step-Dad Build Insane Mini Modern House

Um, the real question after seeing all these splendid pictures of what arguably might be the world's most impressive mini modern house is, how much is rent? This is insane. Apparently the parents are super nice human beings as well, which just makes this story that much more lovably wholesome.

Every now and again we come across a card trick video that just screams win. Some magicians can really take folks' brains for a trip. This card trick is definitely one of the more impressive ones that we've ever seen.

These Naga villagers pulled off a mad coordinated group effort to get a truck out of a massive ditch. You don't really see this many people working together on one thing, and it's pretty crazy to see what people can do when they're all focused on the same goal.

Clearly they're both playing dumb so that their actual genius levels of intelligence aren't put on display for the world to see. Is it me or was Alexa talking some smack when she said, "that is not a valid move"?

Even if you had a neighbor playing this it'd pretty much be impossible to be mad. Way too cool.
