    I’ve had two other instances of the finders, keepers rule. Found a $100 bill on the floor of a car wash at 12:30 am one time. No one else in sight. On another occasion my bank placed $1300 into my account by mistake. I left it there for the bank to reclaim. They never did.

    Seriously.

    I don't think we posted this in the past, but a similar ramble right after the hammer dropped here:

    Someone told me that a bank will make good their mistake to the intended customer but never acknowledge the mistake. I wonder if the amount of the error would make a difference?

    Thanks!

    My wife just got a cutter to make iron-ons and such. I've been wanting a sticker there for a while. It was her first try. Nailed it, IMHO, even the slight kerning problem for the 'ed,' which was weird because she had a kerning font. The 'ed' stands for our girls, so it works that way.

    I believe I have heard about them asking for the money back. But, it might have been a Lex Luthor situation. They rounded too many pennies to notice?

    Ideas:

    1. Join the Human Centipede Giveaway thread (Post 3975 details what to do) and make it part of your package. I just learned about that deal, missed the last sesh, but am gathering up some excellent stuff for the next round.

    2. Take the "relative" high road and try to get KTJO to give you a shipping label so you could send it back; but add some weird stuff in the box so she gets a surprise! Share what you sent on this thread, of course! Pictures!

    3. Get out your precision engraver or heat pen or whatever and make yours SUPER CUSTOM: droopy TRD logos, tired nostalgic quotes from Back to the Future, whatever. Then bolt it to your rock wall you have in your garage and practice your chinups!. Oooh, I wish I had an extra one for my rock wall!

    I mean, whatever. She's an organizational sarlacc pit, so act accordingly.

    Somehow, Boba Fett got out. I guess some handles do also, eventually.

    He was so cool when he was a baddass bit player that DIED AND STAYED MYSTERIOUS.

    I was mostly thinking of the batshit tentacle action. That's what I imagine it's like back at KTJO HQ. Burping. Frantic tentacle shit. Brian running around and falling off the sail barge.

    Wait, are they arms and not tentacles? I think they're "arms." Not sure.

    I want tentacles whipping out of my mouth. Definitely not cool enough to be a Flerken.

    I like #3 but I don’t have a garage wall, and, at my age chin ups have pretty much gone by the wayside.

    Every so often I check the DHL tracking and it lools like it’s been sitting in their Cincinatti hub waiting, waiting.. I’m glad I don’t give a shit this time around. However, if it ever does arrive I’m keeping as a souvenier. Unless someone local wants it.

    We won’t, but we WILL smoke a bowl in it. Maybe. Or we can make one of those African water pipe things that make rich burbling noises that echo through the canyons. I’m good with either.

    Anyone know specifications (socket size (metric or US), length and pitch) for the top bolt that fastens to A pillar?

    The top bolt that fastens the grab bar snapped in two pieces with one piece stuck inside the hole
