This is a question Thrown away: The stuff you loved and lost.

Smash Wogan writes, "we all love our Mums, but we all know that Mums can be cunts, throwing out our carefully hoarded crap that we know is going to be worth millions some day."

What priceless junk have you lost because someone just threw it out?

Zero points for "all my porn". Unless it was particularly good porn...

My dad's vinyl collection
I'm an avid collector of vinyl records. For reasons I can't be much bothered to argue about these days it sounds far superior to CD/digital to me. I hoard as much as I can get my hands on, within reason - the Perry Como records stay in the charity shop..

Growing up in the 60s, my dad bought lots of vinyl and his collection grew to be a fair representation of what was cool back then. I remember leafing through it when very young and would love to get my hands on it now..

However, when I first started collecting vinyl I enquired as to where I might find his collection. Neither of us could find it anywhere in the house. Nobody appeared to know anything about it.

A few years later I'm having a drink with my younger brother, who is also introducing me to weed - something he has been heavily into from the age of 12, while I was shy, retiring, studious and would rarely even have a glass of wine with Sunday dinner. He's regaling me with tales about weed and the subject gets on to the pains of doing without..

It turns out that he sold my dad's entire vinyl collection to his dealer when about 15 because he was that desperate. TWAT!

I think I might have stubbed out the joint on his head at that point!
I have gained my brothers vinyl and what was left of my parents collection so far and still bitterly regret throwing away some lps in the 80s. There is something that just feels right about pulling a well kept record out of it's sleeve and being able to drop the stylus onto the desired track.

If someone sold my record collection, i'd... I can't even think about it! Not my Kitchens of Distinction cds!!
