Few people like clowns and some people just plain hate them. There is just something about grown adults wearing heavy makeup and acting silly and unpredictable that is unsettling.
Although they originally began as entertainers, they have gained a creepy reputation over the years. Undoubtedly there are few of us who wouldn’t want to remodel our homes after finding clown paintings (in the basement of all places). The previous owners must have been big clown fans or at least circus fans.
A Hidden Cottage
Homes with a lot of history often have a lot of secrets both inside and outside. And for the ground around this historical, Georgian home, there must have been a lot of overgrowth to conceal an entire cottage.
But this certainly must have been an interesting find for this family and also a potentially useful one. The homeowners had a lot of options as to what they could do with an old groundskeeper's cottage or how they could renovate it.
Surprise, It’s Plutonium
Now this is perhaps one of the rarest (and most toxic) things you could find left behind on someone’s premises and it’s also illegal.
Because plutonium is a radioactive substance, it cannot be legally owned by anyone. The questions for this find are nearly endless. Plutonium is the most toxic when it is inhaled so thankfully they had a geologist for a neighbor who could help them figure out what the substance was and how to get rid of it.
Where’s the Beef?
Categorize this one under disgusting leftover finds. Finding someone’s old food is pretty gross but straight raw meat? That’s next-level disgusting and also extremely unsanitary.
In fact, it may be one of the worst rotting leftover food items you can find, let alone inside your home. It’s hard to imagine the shock on this couple’s faces when they finally figured out that the terrible smell belonged to a piece of raw, rotting meat. Who knows how long it had been there.
While it must have been quite a shock when Reddit user Littlesnappea found a drawer full of knives, it isn’t all that bad to have a variety of knives left behind in your new home.
After all, a drawer filled with steak knives, paring knives, and pocket knives means you would most likely never have to worry about finding or running out of a proper cutting utensil. Hopefully, the previous owners at least left all of these knives clean, well-sharpened, and rust-free.
