I'll take the bag of dog crap, you take the glitter. At least the bag of dog crap has the functional purpose of being able to be left ablaze on an irritating neighbors doorstep.

And here I thought the morons I grew up with were the only ones who did that. There was girl who lived near me growing up, Sandra Sparks, and we pulled that at her house numerous times, to the point where her father kept a fire extinguisher beside the door.
You guys are a bunch of s**t disturbers

It wasn't my bag until I won it and its contents at a local thrift store charity auction. Prior to the auction, I had examined the contents -- mainly Pentax stuff including several decent lenses. Back home, I emptied the bag and found a previously-unnoticed extra thing, a Pentax-F 50mm f/1.7 in excellent condition, the best lens in the lot. Bonus!

That reminds me of the lowepro rucksack I bought off ebay. Going through it's pockets I discovered a couple of E's or similar wrapped in tissue. As I was planning on heading through customs with that bag, I later changed my mind, I wasn't too chuffed. It got thoroughly searched and washed after that but it dented my confidence in second hand bags, especially as it was Singapore I was heading too.

This thread was brought to you by a strange smell and the discovery of a forgotten bag of dog poo in the side pocket.

Yes I do have a dog otherwise that would be seriously weird.
I was photographing in Utah one time. I was changing lenses on the 4x5 and found a scorpion hiding in my camera bag.

It doesnít. The bag is on fire and they person runs out and stomps on the bag getting excrement all over their shoes...

Dried cow dung will burn, but thatís not the point of a flaming bag of dog poo.

My well-guarded explanation of a peg with tripod thread took a little longer ...
Would you care to elaborate further... as you lost me away back further down the road?

That was in the context of UMC's story of an unwanted find at an airport checkpoint: What unwanted surprise have you found in your camera bag? - PentaxForums.com
Somehow the thing to the right of the tripod in the Cullmann FLEX Touring Set (I carried a predecessor, which was sold individually) wasn't readily identified as an essential photo accessory.

Ok I see what you mean now, the Earth Spike bit... I guess that would get 'em excited.

Was anybody aware of a Pentax version? I wondered what to call it - now found both the "WG Peg Mount" by Pentax and the Ground Spike by BUSHMAN.

Back when I was a much younger and more foolish person, a friend of mine decided to play a burning bag of poo trick on someone he decided he didn't like. He did have the decency to not use real poo at least.

Anyway, I was tucked away across the street in a hedge with my F2s loaded with Kodak Recording Film, which I had planned to develop in Acufine, and shot pictures of the whole thing. I recall the images were quite grainy.
