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...

Ashamed as I am
To agree with a Fenian (sorry CHCB but us Effnicks are officially allowed to beat each other up about how many of our ancestors were starved by the English), I have to say , and it will make me few friends (but bollox to it)....

You had a bunch of overpriced plastic shit, whose whole purpose was to make George Lucas or some Nipponese marketing cock-snot a frigging fortune. If you played with it as intended, it'll be worth shag all, not the £££££ on ebay everyone witters on about. Trust me, dribbled on Hans Solo fucking toys will never be on the Antiques Roadshow with some Bowtied toff blethering on about how it would be worth ten squillion quid 'if it had the original box'.

As for bods with complete collections of whatever, I detect either my billy-bullshit meter going into meltdown, or parents with too much money and too little time to tell the little teen-vulture to fuck off and get a life.

For Yellow Rubbery Fucks sake, there are millions starving in the world, the Cold War is kicking off again, we're in two wars, the useless bunch off arsefelching scum in power are effectively bum-raping you every second of the day and you're worried about a few plastic toys?


And take Vipros' advice. If you have something "that would be worth ten billion squid on ebay", don't leave it in the coffin dodger's attic. Or your old room, that they were planning to turn into a study as soon as the surly adolescent had finally fucked off and stopped emptying the fridge and whining...

Awaits flameing and ignore. Yarrr...

Actually, I completely agree with you.

see your point
but I note that given the question you'd have to expect the type of answers that have been received -although perhaps not quite so many with a star wars or 2000ad theme.

it is getting on my tits too now.

AD 2001? If the posts on here are anything to go by then they can't have been all that rare and thus worth about 9 pence to a blind, deaf mute on ebay.

Well put, it certainly made me smile.

Yay! Surly!

People don't own their things, their things own them.

as i said in another reply
i hadn't expected all the star wars-related posts when i posed this question. at least there are some decent answers that have nothing to do with collectable figurines and comics.

Earns a click
but you stole the one idea I had for a post on this wretchedly boring shitheap of a QOTW!

Gets my vote
Toys are there to be played with. Anyone who hoards them on the offchance that one day, pristine toys will be worth £££squillions has the wrong approach to childhood.
