Many people tend to collect items that might be useful to them later on. These items typically find themselves buried in an unused toolbox or in a garage.
This unfortunate roll of electrical tape was left in a toolbox for five years, all while being exposed to the harsh Texan sun. The result? The plastic began to shrink, and the pressure caused more of the tape to jut out. Let’s just hope this person throws out all of the items they no longer need!
What if You Left Avocados in a Bread Box for a Month?
As any fan of avocados will tell you, it can be very hard to determine when they're ready to be eaten. In fact, finding out if an avocado is ripe or not is probably one of the most common avocado-related questions on the internet.
This person probably wanted to take a break from all that guesswork when they placed their avocados in this bread box. One month later, he came back to find these furry little round balls of mold. But hey, at least they ripened!
What if You Tried to Pickle Garlic?
If you've ever wondered why your garlic has gone from its natural white color to green or blue, the answer probably has to do with what it's been placed in. When placed in an acidic environment, the enzymes and amino acids found in garlic will begin to produce blue or green-colored pigments.
And while the tie-dyed colored garlic is safe to eat, it may not be too appetizing to look at! If the color does bother you, however, you can blanch the bulbs before adding them to your pickling jar.
What if You Froze a Bottle of Wine?
If you think it's a good idea to briefly place a bottle of wine in the freezer so that it can cool down — don't do it! This person probably thought they would do the same thing and accidentally left their bottle in the fridge for too long, causing the bottle to freeze.
What happened next was even stranger — it seems that the low pressure created by the cold air pushed the bottle's cork down and eventually through the side! Let's just hope it didn't make too much of a mess!
What if a Train Went Over a Quarter?
Many of us have heard the myth that a quarter (or any other coin) has the ability to derail a train. And while this myth has been proven to be incorrect by engineers, doing anything near a locomotive is a dangerous idea.
This person's quarter fell onto a train track and was completely flattened by an oncoming train. Strangely enough, the only part of the quarter not to become completely distorted were the words "In God We Trust." Let's hope they learned to stay away from moving trains!
